His work has appeared on the pages of Sophisticate’s Black Hair (and countless other publications) and his roster of celebrity clients is seemingly endless. So it’s no wonder celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine is getting his props by being honored with the Beauty and Fashion Award presented by the Truth Awards Gala.

Two-time Emmy-winning hairstylist Kiyah Wright and Emmy winner celebrity make up artist Valente Frazier presented the award to the iconic makeup pro at the black-tie gala held recently. Fine is the secret weapon behind the faces of some Hollywood’s most beautiful women—including Queen Latifah, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Hudson as well as supermodels Tyra Banks, Iman and Naomi Campbell. These beauties have relied on his expert hands to look their most glamorous. In the course of his stellar career, Fine was the first African-American spokesperson for Revlon and Covergirl cosmetics and has authored the book Fine Beauty: Beauty Basics and Beyond for African-American Women

The third annual Truth Awards Gala was held at the Taglyan Cultural Complex in Los Angeles and honored African-American, trailblazing men and women whose personal and professional accomplishments have positively impacted the perception and image of the Black LGBTQ community. The Truth Awards embodies the belief that members of the Black LGBTQ community and its allies who embrace and live their truth should be recognized and honored. The Truth Awards are presented by award-winning actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, The DIVA Foundation and Better Brothers Los Angeles.
