Confessions of a Professional Makeup Artist

Whether I’m creating a natural, no makeup-makeup look or evening glam, how the face is prepped is key to a successful look. And while cutting corners can save time, there are a few must do's I always follow when applying makeup, and ones that happen before I even touch a brush to anyone’s face! Read on to check out the rules of beauty I rely on.

To ensure long-lasting makeup, always set your foundation. Whether it’s for a photo shoot or a celebrity client, I swear by the ULTA Makeup Setting Spray.
I recommend the Mattifier Shine Eliminator option for those with oily skin, and Chill for those with dry or combo skin. And for those extra long nights, I suggest All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray to prevent makeup meltdowns.
Tip: Mist setting spray onto your makeup sponge and gently tap onto the T-zone for a more concentrated application.

Always keep a nude, red and a brightly-colored lip stain in your desk, purse, or vanity at any time. In a pinch, you can add to cheeks, blot on lips (for a barely there stain), or apply fully for a great nighttime option. Adaptability keeps you on fleek! 


Concealer is a multi-functional tool when used to its full advantage. I love a thick concealer that can be ‘blended out’ with a bit of moisturizer—so not only do you have the perfect zit remover, but also a product that can be added to, an eye cream to conceal dark circles quickly without caking.
Tip: Add a swipe of concealer to areas where you’ll apply highlighter (brow bone, down the bridge of your nose, chin and forehead) so your glisten has extra staying power.



I cannot stress this enough—drink plenty of water! Its me gently reminding you. Hydrating your body means younger, smoother, glowing skin. To make sure you stay hydrated, keep a refillable water bottle with you all day and set ‘drinking’ goals for yourself, ultimately trying to reach eight, 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day. 

Lastly, yes, you likely cleanse and moisturize daily, but how often do you exfoliate? Exfoliating regularly sloughs away hard-to-shed dead skin cells, which can prevent moisturizer and serum from fully penetrating your skin. Ask a dermatologist how often you should exfoliate based on your skin type and needs, and follow this guide on how to Exfoliate Your Face.

Brazilian Bikini Wax

An important step to prepare for a bikini wax is to avoid swimming or sunning oneself for a full 24 hours prior to the wax. After the waxing, you will want to consider the same for a couple of days. The skin can have some redness or bumping, which can be helped by ice. There is also the occasional ingrown hair, which can be iced, and then have anti-bacterial cream applied to ward off infection. Aestheticians recommend gently exfoliating the pubic area before the wax, and then doing so regularly after the wax to cut down on ingrown hairs. If you want to look your best in a tiny bikini, the Brazilian wax is the way to go. However, there are plenty of things you need to consider before showing up for your appointment. You need to get your body ready, but also consider your state of mind, particularly if it’s your first time. Avoid Trimming The ideal length of hair for the best bikini wax is between 1/8" - 1/4". Anything shorter will not deliver satisfied result…
