Contouring… we’ve seen it applied so badly on many occasions. What’s the secret to a perfectly contoured face?
The secret to a perfect contour is understanding that shadow can only be achieved with light. Shadows should be added where they would naturally appear and should be made using a cool shadow or shade that looks like a real shadow. Check out Kevyn Aucoin, The Sculpting Powder from the lights to the darkest skin.
Summer is here and so are new colors. What’s the new color that’s making waves?
I am loving deep burgundy for the lips. It is so impactful and so unexpected for summer. My favorite is OCC Lip Tar in Black Dahlia
What’s one MUST HAVE item that everyone should have?
Embryolisse Lait Creme. The 24 Hour Miracle Cream is a favorite of artists everywhere.
What’s your favorite new cosmetic find?
Kimiko Eyebrow Pencils, Senna Vivid Cream to Powder Blush Palette and NARS Duochromatic Blush
Lastly, what advice would you give to makeup artists who aspire to reach your caliber in film, fashion and editorial?
Education and networking is essential to success. Take every class and attend every event you can. Also, be nice to everyone.
