Los Angeles-based celebrity makeup artist Anthony H. Nguyen is known for his versatility in creating highly innovative and cutting edge looks for the most risk-taking editorials, to simplistic beauty for the red carpet.

Before working as a celebrity makeup artist for the fashion and entertainment industry, he practiced filmmaking, theatre, & photography. He wrote, directed, filmed, & edited short films that screened internationally at film festivals such as the LA Film Fest, Channel Islands Film Fest, & the Vietnamese International Film Festival.

Anthony has worked alongside with some of the most respected and requested photographers and directors in the business, shaping a reputable client list and is known as one of the most diverse and exciting makeup artists today.

Anthony’s celebrity clients include Paris Hilton, Hilary Duff, Rose McGowan, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Katherine Jackson, Fairuza Balk, music artists Bonnie Mckee, Rita Ora, and Katy Perry. Anthony’s work is also featured in published editorials such as Style, Marie Claire, and Galore, and has been on set with some of the top celebrated photographers in the industry such as Ellen Von Unwerth among others. Major international campaigns and commercials also feature Anthony's work including Nike, LeSportSac, Joyrich, and Just Fab, and has been spotlighted on runway shows with noted fashion designers such as Oscar de la Renta, St. John, & YSL.

Anthony quotes, “Makeup is looking beyond the surface of the individual —it’s understanding where they came from, and what they’re all about. It’s my passion to convey personality through diverse looks of beauty. It begins with a simple stroke, the possibilities are infinite."
