learn more - about painted ivoryTM

Welcome to Painted IvoryTM. My name is Samanta J. Steffer and I want to personally thank you for stopping by!


This website started as a concept in 2017 when I went through the biggest identity crisis of my life. After getting out of the military and becoming a SAHM (stay at home mama), I truly lost my way and my confidence. I fell into depression and was filled with anxiety, until God presented an opportunity for me to start my own work from home beauty business. My faith and God's gentle leading carried me through all of these life changes; slowly, but surely I was being transformed. I began to share health and beauty tips on my social media accounts, a brand I then called True Beauty VibesTM, and simply trusted that this was all part of something much bigger than makeup. Once my business began to grow, I finally took the plunge to create this website - something that's been on my heart long before I did makeup or hair tutorials.


My goal is to help you learn about health & beauty products, how to lead a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle, gain confidence, and be inspired to live at your highest potential. My passions are all rooted in faith, family, and love.

I currently live in Florida with my husband Sean, son Lev, and our newest puppy Simba (a golden doodle). Being a wife and a mama are always my top priorities, and I am so grateful that I get to do this with them by my side! The best advice I could give anyone is to chase after their passion and seek purpose that is rooted in love and loving others. I wanted to create a life for my family that didn't center around a career or building someone else's dreams. Our time on this earth is short, and our opportunities so vast, it never made sense to fall in line with the traditional. Writing this blog and managing my business has been such a joy and I am just so thankful you stopped by and took time to read a little bit about me. I hope that you will visit this site when you need encouragement, advice, or help choosing the best hair, makeup or skincare products!
