I am Sarah Ankerman, a Southern California makeup and hair artist. I specialize in services for Weddings, TV/Film/Commercial clients, Boudoir, Photoshoots, and Special Occasions. Services include High Definition Makeup Application, Airbrush Makeup, False Lashes, and Hair Styling. I am truly passionate about what I do, because it allows me to build new relationships and meet people that I may not have had the opportunity to otherwise. I am truly blessed to do what I love! One of my favorite things about my “job” is building lasting relationships with my clients, long after their event.

I discovered my passion for hair and makeup artistry as a dancer on a competitive Latin and Ballroom dance team while attending UC Davis. I often helped my team members with their hair and makeup for competitions, and always loved creating different looks. After graduating from UC Davis, I moved to San Diego where I pursued my love of this art form. In 2014, I attended makeup artistry school in Los Angeles and continue to always further my craft with classes.  After attending school, I started working full time as the lead makeup artist for a TV news live shot station in San Diego. My work has been featured on Fox News Channel, CNN, MSNBC, HLN, Fox Business, CBS, Syfy Network, E! , and KPBS.

About the Company

Recently, I expanded my company so I could better service larger events. Ankerman Artistry is a hand selected team of talented and reliable makeup and hair artists. Our motto here at Ankerman Artistry is that every person has their own unique beauty. We just want to enhance what is already there, while still making you look and feel like the best version of yourself. My team and I create your makeup look based on your specific wants, needs, and facial features. No cookie cutter looks here! Sit back and relax! My team and I have got you covered.
