Makeup artist Sarah Tanno takes true pride in expanding artistic possibilities on the human canvas.
Her iconic collaborations with Lady Gaga as her personal makeup artist have catapulted this very ethos to the international stage. Together they have explored reverential makeup traditions and built upon them, creating impactful moments that are soft and ethereal, glamorous and scintillating, and even hauntingly beautiful. Sarah was part of the team responsible for Gaga’s transformation into The Countess on American Horror Story Hotel. For this critically acclaimed collaboration, she was awarded a 2016 Creative Arts Emmy as well as Make-up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Award.
Her easy-going attitude and ability to make every woman feel like the most gorgeous version of herself have also established a loyal client base with talents Gigi Hadid, Dakota Johnson, Suki Waterhouse and Karlie Kloss. She’s also worked with leading photographers Steven Klein, Karl Lagerfeld, Inez & Vinoodh, Ellen Von Unwerth, Terry Richardson, Collier Schorr, Chadwick Tyler, Rugh Hogben and Paolo Roversi to name a few. Editorial credits can be seen in Harper’s Bazaar, V, Elle, L’ Officiel Homme, Wonderland, T Magazine and Dazed & Confused.
In 2017, Marc Jacobs Beauty named her their Global Artistry Ambassador.
