Yadim began his career working as a cashier assistant for M.A.C. Cosmetics in San Diego, attending the company’s in-house classes to become certified as a make-up artist. On his move to New York in 2006, the young creative secured a position as an assistant for influential make-up maven Pat McGrath , developing his skills through assisting on editorials with numerous high-profile publications and with clients such as Miu Miu, Prada and Dolce & Gabbana, before embarking on his solo venture.

Alongside make-up for fashion brands, Yadim has also collaborated with musician Lady Gaga, producing the look for her 2013 music video "Applause." Initially represented by Tim Howard Management, Yadim joined talent agency Art Partner in March 2013 alongside other prominent makeup artists such as Charlotte Tilbury and Lucia Pica .
