Satya Linak has been a life-long Artist working in several mediums before finding her passion for Makeup and the Beauty arts. Following her college studies in Fine Arts and Photography, Satya went on to study at Makeup Designory in Burbank, California. Having already been an award-winning Jewelry Designer, she focused her creative talents on Makeup and Beauty. After working with MAC Cosmetics as a freelance Artist, Satya went on to become the Lead West Coast Makeup Artist helping to launch Surratt Beauty.
The catalyst for discovering her life passion of Makeup Artistry was being diagnosed with cancer at 19. She used this life experience to experiment with makeup and wigs. Her enthusiasm for the industry flourished, and through the process of self-transformation she began to understand how makeup goes beyond the superficial. It is also a healing art that nourishes the spirit. Satya truly loves what she does and is inspired by art, self-expression, music, life’s journey and making people feel good.
Satya specializes in beauty, fashion & editorial makeup; men’s grooming; and light hairstyling. She has worked in all aspects of the industry, with celebrity clients like Terri Nunn from Berlin, Aloe Blacc, Korn, and Fitz & The Tantrums, to editorials published in Schön Magazine, FHM, and Teen People, worked with photographers and directors like David LaChapelle, Nick Knight, and Joseph Cultice, advertising clients like Paul Mitchell, Acura, and MTV, and runway shows for Tom Ford and the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund.
