Samuel Rauda’s horrific car accident has left the celebrity makeup artist in a “fight” for his life, according to his close friends.

According to a GoFundMe, the makeup artist who worked with reality star Kylie Jenner underwent “major surgery” on March 14 due to the incident.

“He has a long road to recovery ahead of him,” organizer Johanna Portillo said. “Your donations will help cover the cost of his medical expenses and whats to come.”

Rauda’s friend, an influencer and reality star named La Demi, shared more details about the “awful accident” on her Instagram Stories.

“He flew off of a moving vehicle crushing his head into the pavement,” she wrote, adding that Rauda had been “suffering from internal bleeding and 8 different injuries to his brain.”

It is unclear where the accident took place and how many others were involved.

La Demi added that Rauda’s surgery “went well,” but that the ailing makeup artist and his family had been left with “overwhelming medical expenses.”

The tragic accident even garnered the attention of Jenner, 23, since Rauda has done makeup work for her in the past.

Jenner made a $5,000 donation to the artist’s GoFundMe and also asked fans to raise funds, which was met with a lot of criticism.

However, Page Six has since learned Jenner donated only $5,000 to put the account over its initial goal of $10,000. The account later raised over $90,000 in additional funds.

On Sunday, Tejada shared that his pal “continues to fight” amid his health struggles.

Portillo also added on GoFundMe, “We would like to extend our most sincere thanks to each and everyone who has donated or sent prayers in support of Samuel. We have felt the love and know that your continued prayers for healing are very much appreciated.”
