Tommy Napoli is a makeup artist and beauty consultant currently residing in New York City.
Growing up, an innate eye for color, and influences from art, fashion, film, music, and literature informed Tommy's creativity and imagination. He has been creating beauty almost his entire life.
Tommy is often called upon for his minimal effort, maximum impact aesthetic–– a signature which his clients describe as polished and yet effortless. He seeks to create a sublimely real and modern take on beauty and glamour.
Tommy is a newly past Lead Artist and assistant for high-fashion makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury and a traveling Team Tilbury artist. Recently, he was fortunate to assist high-fashion makeup artist Lauren Parsons on the set of Steven Klein for a 125th Vogue anniversary story, working with Joan Smalls, Lara Stone, Finn Wittrock & Trai Byers.
Today, Tommy can be found working with industry leaders for fashion editorials, advertisements, campaigns, and creating memorable looks for red carpets, weddings, private events, and television. Often, he takes the reigns as artistic director in his many collaborations. With training in over 300 brands, he is an expert makeup artist, artistry and development educator, and independent product expert and consultant, with a career beyond his years.
When not working, Tommy is dedicated to his creative passions: writing, feminism, music, fine and performing arts, food and holistic health. He resides in his native Astoria, NYC.
