Bio Taylor Babaian

Taylor Babaian grew up in Los Angeles, California surrounded by beauty and fashion.  She was infatuated with the idea of being able to make a woman beautiful through makeup.  Growing up with strict older brothers she wasn’t allowed to play with makeup, so she improvised.  Taylor began to look at magazines and draw faces at the early age of seven.  She really grasped the ability to understand the lines and contours of the face while experimenting with color.  Taylor attributes her skill to these early study sessions.  She started working in an upscale salon at the age of 18 and was managing it by the time she turned 21.  In an effort to boost retail sales and get further involved in the business, Taylor began to do make up applications for clients. Her natural ability as a Makeup Artist developed.

Taylor is quite skilled at knowing and understanding make up for different face shapes, skin tones and types.  She is especially talented at applying makeup on women of all ethnicities, and ages; particularly on Asian (her own heritage), African-American, and Latin skin.  Taylor has a true love for making all women look beautiful.  Her talent and congenial personality landed her on several shows including Access Hollywood, the CBS Early Show, Lifetime’s “Sheer Make up,” Dr. Phil’s “Featured Makeover” Extra! “Global Beauty” Fox News “Prom Swan” as well as international shows demonstrating and advising make up applications.  Taylor has been written up in the NY Times Style section as the Makeup Artist with G.P.S, and The Fashion Week Daily, as well as other top magazines including In Style, Real Simple, and Town and Country. Allure Korea calls Taylor one of the “Top Korean Artists,” internationally. In 2012 Taylor received the covered Genius Award from Elle Magazine.

She has worked on dozens of magazines including Vogue, Elle, Rolling Stone, Essence, Tatler Hong Kong, and Estylo and with such celebrities as Evanescence, Nelly Furtado, Paula Abdul, Yoko Ono, Adrien Brody, Michael Caine, Giovannni Ribisi, Yunjin Kim, and Elisha Cuthbert. In addition, her advertising clients include Mercedes Benz, Tide, Paul Mitchell, Guess and Juicy Couture.

Taylor is most dedicated to educating and showing all women their own beauty. She is the author of ASIAN FACES, The Essential Beauty and Make up Guide for Asian Women, published August 2007 by Perigee Books/Penguin Group with the foreword by Yoko Ono.  Her second book, STYLE EYES, August 2010 published by Penguin Books, is a top selling, first ever non branded, make up guide specializing on eyes; their shape, color, skin pigmentation and makeup application for all ages and skin tones. Style Eyes has been translated in Polish and is being published in Simple Chinese for Mainland China. She is currently working on her 3rd book to be published Fall 2014 by Berkley Publishing/PenguinGroup. Taylor is also founder of Kre-at Beauty Eyelashes which are sold at Barneys New York nationwide as well as select boutiques.

Taylor is represented globally by CloutierRemix.
