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.
