Rudy Miles is a diverse makeup artist skilled in the beauty and fashion industries; combining his experiences with business, retail, technical artistry, product development and skin care knowledge.

Rudy began his career in fashion as a print and runway model in Chicago which led to a job assisting new talent in developing their portfolios at John Casablancas/Elite Modeling Agency. He also studied Fashion Merchandising and Marketing at the International Academy of Merchandising and Design.

After arriving in the Big Apple in 1995, Rudy’s makeup career quickly grew after he joined the Aveda Flatiron Experience Center where his clientele included actress Susan Sarandon, singer Chaka Khan and model Karen Alexander. Rudy’s talent soon outgrew the boundaries of retail and a career in commercials, print and runway was inevitable.

His extensive travels have landed him to almost every continent. While in the Brazilian rainforest, Rudy visited the Yawanawa village learning their sacred art of face and body painting which became a part of the Aveda Makeup packaging for Uruku products. Rudy also created makeup looks for EDUN while shooting in Uganda.

As makeup team leader at New York’s fashion week, Rudy has created runway looks for designers Zang Toi, Malan Breton, Sherri Hill, Meghan Walsh, Oscar de la Renta, Katie Ermilio, Reem Acra, Perry Ellis, and EDUN. Rudy and his team have also created looks for the Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana boutiques.

Rudy has beautified Mara Brock Akil, Teresa Edwards, Carol Alt, Kirstie Alley, Kendall Jenner, Camila Alves McConaughey, Nana Meriwether, Sela Ward, Paris Hilton, Nicole Hilton, Victoria Gotti and Jill Zarin.  Male grooming includes Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels, Matthew McConaughey, Josh Lucas and Cory Stearns.
