Sandy Koepper

With over 17 years of makeup experience in print, commercials, award winning films and television shows, Sandra brings a unique artistic perspective to the makeup industry. Sandra began her professional career as a photographer after receiving her Bachelor's Degree from the University of South Florida in 1991. While assisting photographers and building her own portfolio and photo business, she was exposed to the makeup industry and decided to use her artistic flare to offer makeup services as well. Finding the face a challenging new canvass and always on a quest for excellence in her art, she decided to further her makeup education by attending the Westmore Academy of Cosmetic Arts in Los Angeles and to spend several years afterwards in Los Angeles pursing a makeup career in film and television.

A member of Makeup and Hairstylists Local 798 New York, she currently resides in Baltimore but spends most of her time working on location from New York to New Orleans to Rome or where ever her projects send her.

Her exciting relationship with HBO has resulted in 5 successful and challenging seasons on "The Wire" using makeup and special makeup effects to design hauntingly believable characters living with drug addiction and violence. Her other award winning HBO movies and mini-series credits include "The Corner", "Something The Lord Made" and "Shot in the Heart". She has also worked on many episodic series such as "Homicide: Life on the Street", "The West Wing", "The District", "Big Love" and numerous television pilots.

Always evolving, Sandra loves to experiment with all the newest makeup and beauty products to keep her on the cutting edge of the business. She loves to share her makeup tips and techniques through teaching and she brings passion, enthusiasm and integrity to all the projects she touches.
