natural glow academy

Empowering women to take their confidence into their own hands fulfills my soul in a way that’s hard to describe. It’s taken years to perfect the structure of my Natural Glow Academy lessons and I believe the value lies in the top level instruction and attention. No matter your skill level or previous makeup experience, I will meet you wherever you are and I promise we’ll have so much fun along the way.

“I LOVED my session with Samara!!! This experience exceeded my expectations. I received a session as a gift and didn’t know what to expect. Samara was professional, knew her stuff, and taught me so much about how to do makeup on my specific skin type. It was truly a wonderful, educational, and fun experience! Her follow up was also amazing and she sent me such detailed instructions on how to recreate the look. Plus, my makeup looked FLAWLESS!!!”
-Grace S.

"Samara is amazing and fun. She is super knowledgeable and helpful. I wanted a more natural look and she more than delivered exactly what I wanted."
-Lauren S.

“I loved my Natural Glow Session with Samara! I learned SO much, from what makeup shades best compliment my natural beauty to application techniques and a detailed instruction guide that I will continue to reference repeatedly. 
My skin looked FLAWLESS post our session, which I can now replicate on my own using the steps and products recommended by Samara. Even learning how to fill in my eyebrows, which I'd never known how to do for 31 years, was a complete game changer for my makeup application. I had such a blast working with Samara! She brought professionalism to our session while sharing her positive, supportive, and uplifting energy with me. I plan to book a follow-up session in the future!”

Samara is a True Gem

"Everything about Samara is unique, beautiful and positive! I had the pleasure of a 1:1 makeup educational session. It has changed my skin and entire daily look! I'm amazed at her detail and knowledge to highlight your natural look. She also works with what is in your makeup bag. Samara is a gem!" - Jennifer O

Friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable

"Samara truly exceeded my expectations. From the moment I walked into her studio, she made me feel welcome and comfortable. Her friendly demeanor helped put me at ease and allowed me to enjoy my experience. Not only was she friendly, she was incredibly professional. Her attention to detail was impressive, and she made sure that every aspect of my makeup was flawless. Overall, I would highly recommend Samara if you are looking for someone friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She truly went above and beyond to ensure I was happy with my look and I couldn't be more grateful for her expertise and talent." -Lisa M.

perfect for all ages!

"I made an appointment with Samara because I wanted a fresh natural glow look. She took the time to explain every step and even helped me learn how to apply everything myself. At the end she provided me a step by step guide so I could easily replicate my look without her. The whole experience made me feel like a princess and helps me feel like a princess everyday. I may not be a new bride but could easily be a mother of the bride and this is a service everyone’s mother would love."  -Becki H.


"Samara Perchick is an extremely talented make up artist. Before I consulted with Samara, I wore only lipgloss and mascara. AFTER meeting with Samara, I have the ability to create a “no make up face”, a glamorous night out face..and every look in between. She taught me the correct colors to use, products and provided step by step instructions during the consult and afterwards with an email (which contained the application steps with links to all the products she used). Samara is a beautiful woman inside and out and consulting with her a pleasure and is an opportunity that should not be missed. Samara is magic." -Victoria C.
