20 year old makeup artist Scott Osbourne is the most daring makeup artist of 2019 and we have plenty of pics below to back that up. His work ethic is out of this world and his vision is oh so unique. He is best-known for being Rico Nasty’s makeup artist. With Rico as his canvas, Scott creates various looks but above all else, he crafts art and perfectly expresses the many sides of the sugar trap star. As we watch his lovely looks grace different magazine covers like The FADER and Clash, we had to hop on a call for an interview. Check it out.
RESPECT.: Hey Scott! Excited to be on this call with you. Where are you from?
Right now, I am based in LA but I am originally from Baltimore. I moved to LA in June back when we shot The FADER cover.
RESPECT.: Did you know Rico before the fame since you are from the DMV as well?
No, I met her last year when she was looking on IG for a makeup artist.
RESPECT.: How did you get into doing makeup?
I started doing makeup when I was in 10th grade back in Baltimore, Maryland. I was working at a small ghetto mall there. I would bring my homegirls in there and do their faces. My senior year, I started working at Mac for a year then from there I got a freelance gig. I was over my homegirls house and someone tagged me in a post. Rico contacted me the next day on January 22nd and from there I was working with her non stop. From the FADER cover to Crank magazine. Then traveling.
RESPECT.: I’m guessing this adventurous life is new to you.
This is my first time going on tour. These are places I have never been. Before this, I would think of these places and I would think no, I will never go to these places.
RESPECT.: Describe your makeup style.
Abstract. Twisted fantasy glam. Take your average girl and say wtf is going on. Adding jewels and gems. I want to enhance that beauty first then go crazy. I’m versatile because I can do natural glam as well then do these crazy unique looks.
RESPECT.: Do you base it off what the client wants?
No, It is based on how I’m feeling and the vibe they are giving off.
RESPECT.: Is there anybody’s face you wish you could get your magic hands on?
Everyday I think of Kim Kardashian and think if I get my hands on her face it’s a wrap. It’s over! I will go ham.
RESPECT.: What is the best part about doing Rico Nasty’s makeup?
Everyday is new and it is never the same thing. She’s always willing and that’s what I love about her. She trusts me as her makeup artist.
RESPECT.: Sounds like the greatest job ever.
I love it so much. I feel free and I love it.
RESPECT: Aside from beating faces on the road so what are your side projects?
There is a brand I’ve been working with and I’ll be releasing my own skin oil through them. Be on the lookout! I am also in her new documentary released through The FADER.
