Sarit hasn’t had your typical makeup career. Although she’s always loved makeup, she first got her Bachelor’s Degree in Business while living in Israel. She then studied web design and took a year long makeup course, never thinking she would make a career out of it.
She took the leap into makeup when she relocated to NY in 2002. Starting out in print, she quickly moved on to design makeup for independent movies and tv shows.
Her career took off due to the passion and dedication she brings to each project, her extensive knowledge in her craft and her warmth and cheery personality.. Her experience in the Israeli military instilled organization, discipline, and attention to timing – all assets to production. She is a member of both Local 798 and Local 706.
For the past three and a half years she has been the Makeup Dept. Head for Marvel’s superhero series on Netflix: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders.
In 2011 she was honored for her achievements with the Variety Ensemble Designing Women Award given by the New York Women In Film and Televison for the show Nurse Jackie and then again in June 2017 for Marvel’s Jessica Jones. She also received the Peabody Award for Jessica Jones in 2016.
Sarit is based in NY and LA and enjoys traveling for work anywhere there are opportunities
