Our fellow royals fans might know Daniel Martin as the makeup artist behind Meghan Markle's now-infamous wedding day look. Jessica Alba fans may recognize him from her Instagram. (He's a longtime friend and former Chief Color Consultant for Honest Beauty.) And now, you'll get to know him as the Global Director of Artistry and Education for cult beauty brand, Tatcha.
Announced this week, Martin's new role is a first for the brand. "It felt like a natural progression of my career and I have such a deep respect for everything Vicky [Tatcha's founder] has built," he told PureWow in the latest Celebeauty Sit-Down. One of Martin's first goals in his new role is to help train the makeup artists at Sephora (who is the brand's biggest retail partner in the U.S.).
"I want to start by getting a better understanding of the culture at Sephora, see how their employees interact with customers, and what kind of artistry I can bring to the table to support their makeup artists. I'd like to help them become complexion experts—marrying skincare and makeup together—which is my M.O.," says Martin. "I've always viewed makeup as an accessory to your skincare. Take care of your skin and let it shine through first, then, use makeup as a finishing touch."
