Daniel Martin is a beauty authority and social activist with a passion for education and self-improvement. Technically-trained and highly sought-after, Daniel has more than 25 years of experience as a professional makeup artist having worked across the beauty, fashion, and entertainment industries. Daniel’s timeless approach to achieving understated, elegant, and sophisticated looks that highlight his clients’ natural beauty has won over celebrities, models, brides, editors, and industry executives alike.
It’s through his appreciation and deep understanding of how skin types and complexions play a crucial role in the efficacy of makeup and skincare that Daniel has focused his expertise. Daniel’s most important role, however, is arguably that of advocate. A member of both the Asian-American and LGBTQIA communities, Daniel uses the platform his high-profile career and insider access has afforded him to help serve under-represented and marginalized groups both in the beauty industry and beyond. Daniel has worked closely with charitable organizations such as Act to Change, Room to Read, and Model Alliance in a continued effort to contribute culturally and empower others.
When not travelling, Daniel resides in New York City with his husband where he is an avid Pilates goer, bookworm, and forager of fine desserts.
