Slater Stanley is a full-time freelance makeup artist working in celebrity, fashion, bridal, eCommerce, film, and print. To accommodate clients he takes appointments for applications or private lessons on location or at his home in Brooklyn, any time of day. He is happy to work with clients in either English or Mandarin Chinese.
Slater has a growing celebrity clientele, ranging from top models like Duckie to well-known activists like Kimberly Drew. He has also worked on multiple occasions with musicians such as Björk, Princess Nokia, and Mykki Blanco, for both live performance and editorial makeup needs. His work has been featured in Vogue, Glamour, Nylon, Galore, and Paper Magazine, as well as multiple NYFW shows.
Most recently (September 2019) he helped to organize a makeup program for the women incarcerated at Rikers Island NY state prison in the transgender housing unit. His demo there focused on teaching the women makeup techniques (such as eyebrow shaping, contouring, and stubble color correcting) as a resource to facilitate their own safety as well as aesthetic upon their release.
