We sat down with everyone’s go to makeup guru and found out a little bit about her favorite products along with tips and tricks to maintaining a flawless face all summer long!
What’s one product you can’t live without?
If you only had five minutes to get ready; what products would you use?
Moisturizer, sunblock, concealer, liner, mascara, multi purpose lip/cheek tint.
A tip for getting youthful skin?
“Sun protection, sun protection, sun protection! Supported by regular cleansing, exfoliation & moisturizing-
never sleep without cleansing your face! Equally important is a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables mixed with regular exercise and yoga.
What’s one makeup look you’re absolutely sick of?
What is your go to everyday look?
I like a more classic look for everyday as it works well all year round. Having well groomed eyebrows is the key to any look, day or night. After my moisturizer, I use some sunblock followed by a light layer of foundation and concealer (wherever needed). A soft peach blush with a touch of bronze is definitely the look for the summer. Spice lip pencil from Mac and Nude Kate lipstick from Charlotte Tillbury are my all time favorites for every day. Finishing off with eyeliner and mascara to complete the look.
What kind of look do brides usually ask for when they come to you?
Brides want to naturally look their very best, which is our signature look. On a flawless base, requests range from an almost no makeup look to a super glamorous smokey/glittery eye.
Do you have any tricks to keep makeup from melting off during the summer?
Switch to liquid primers, spray it on the face before lightly moisturizing. Mineral powder foundations tend to stay on better in the heat. Always carry some blotting papers to keep your face looking fresh! Pro Tip- dust some translucent loose powder under your eye close to the lash line to avoid panda eyes.
Your favorite lip color?
Honey love from MAC
Which do you prefer- Dewy or matte look?
