NY Makeup Artist for Film, Commercial, and Television, Asha Smith 2017 - Photo with brushes

Asha Smith Bio

A student of art and photography, Asha Smith mastered an early understanding of light and shadow, texture and shape.

Asha first began experimenting with the transformative power of makeup on her photographed subjects. She began to see the human face as her canvas, and makeup as a tool to create art on the canvas.

Asha's love of photography sparked an interest in film, and she ultimately earned a degree in filmmaking.

Finding the on-set demands of character analysis, maintaining film continuity, and collaborating with a creative team the most fascinating areas of film production, Asha incorporated her love of art and the transformative nature of makeup artistry into her love of film production.

She finds the personal interaction involved with makeup artistry — as well as the collaborative aspects and immediate satisfaction she receives from the work — a bigger draw than other creative mediums. 

In addition to film and television, Asha regularly works in beauty and fashion.
