About Penny

Celebrity makeup artist Penny Sadler is everywhere in the worlds of television, film, advertising, fashion and print media. She’s the creative professional who’s worked with the faces of Brooke Shields, Anderson Cooper, George W. Bush, Melrose Place star Laura Leighton and American Idol Kelly Clarkson, as well as high-profile entrepreneurs and corporate leaders.

You will see her work in Forbes, Travel & Leisure and international editions of People, as well as in hundreds of national commercials and news broadcasts.

Sadler is a multi-talented makeup artist and hair stylist whose passion for creating beautiful images began as a California teenager where she would often accompany her mother on visits to the cosmetics counter. Inspired by the colors, contours, and “tools of the trade,” she studied with Hollywood legends Maurice Stein of Cinema Secrets and Harry Blake and the Westmores.

Sadler shines when it comes to creating a professional and polished image for camera, media and corporate events, or photo sessions. Working with celebrity speakers, politicians and CEOs and through her own extensive travels, she realized her clients needed a polished look that could be achieved quickly with minimal product. It was only a matter of time before she designed a course to teach corporate, business travelers, and professional speakers how to get “camera ready.” Now 20 years later, Penny not only travels for starring roles, but also delivers star power to women and men who want to look their best for any occasion.
