Patrick Tumey has been called the "Perfectionist" many times throughout his career as a makeup artist over the last 20 years. His philosophy on beauty is "there is no such thing as an unattractive person....just a lazy one."
Patrick's training began at Il-Makiage, the well-respected makeup acadamy and make-up line, which was created by Ilana Harkavi, who was Diana Ross's makeup artist. His training was what he called somewhat different from the conventional makeup artist. He learned to work on ethnic skin-tones first. Color theory and contouring with African American, Latin and Asian skin-tones was his specialty which has helped him be the makeup artist on call for some of Hollywood's most beautiful actresses of color.
Patrick has made appearances on QVC as well as two top Reality TV shows. From working on Advertising campaigns to Celebrities to Red Carpet events, Patrick has always proven himself to be the ultimate perfectionist. With a strong work ethic and artistic outlook on fashion & style, it's no wonder Patrick is one of Hollywood's most sought after makeup artist!
Patrick's work has been featured in national advertising campaigns for Smashbox Cosmetics, Neutrogena, Bebe, Benefit Cosmetics, Herbal Essence, Paul Mitchell, St. John, and Target. Editorial clients include Elle, Italian Vogue, Flaunt, Glamour, GQ, In Style, Marie Claire, Surface, Vanity Fair and W Magazine.
