Review: Douglas Sappor Make up Artist

Born in Accra – Ghana, Douglas Dugbatey Sappor discovered make-up while studying fashion design. He instantly fell in love with the combination of fashion and art, something he knew would enhance his profession and has never looked back.

After his studies in fashion Design and textiles at Ho polytechnic, Douglas thought it was time to put his studies and passion into practice. His carrier began in 2003 as a professional make-up artist with Ghana Television (GTV).

Three years into his carrier, he felt he needed a more challenging role hence he embraced an offer as a Wardrobe Executive and a senior Make-up Artist with Metro TV. In the same year he founded a make-up and fashion company called Sadion FX Make-up/ Fashion. He built his portfolio with Sadion FX Make-up/ Fashion as a make-up artist.

Douglas, one of Ghana’s few male make-up artists, says with extensive experience in the fashion and beauty world he feels proud of the profession he has chosen. Having worked with editorial and high profile private clients, Douglas now concentrates on commercial shoots, wedding, special effect (FX), film, runway, models make-up etc. He has developed a reputation for flawless skin work and the ability to add colour perfectly to enhance his client’s best features. His in depth understanding of colour theory has played an important role in his success and equally comfortable creating flawless minimal looks as in creating exciting dramatic haute couture looks. He has worked very closely with each of his client’s skin tones by adding colour to enhance beauty and toning down colour where it is required.

Douglas says if you want to become a fashion make-up artist, you’ll have to focus on trendy looks. Fashion is all about clothing, accessories and even make-up being in style. More than that though, you also have to be original; as fashion designers have one-of-a-kind creations to display, their models’ make-up must coordinate with the designs in a unique way. Understanding how to apply make-up on people of different skin types and colours is also crucial.

Douglas Sappor future plans is to create a  a fashion and make up line. Visit Sadion FX The world fashion & Make-up @ Website: and See his make-up and beauty blog for a natural, flawless and professional finish.
