The celebrity and editorial makeup artist is featured in HOLR Issue 11.
What is your beauty routine?
Skincare is always the key step to creating the perfect makeup. I start by thoroughly cleansing my face in the morning, followed by a toner, and then a vitamin C serum. I love the Omorovicza Daily Vitamin C, which brightens the skin and is full of antioxidants to protect the skin from damaging UV rays and pollution.
What is your favourite skincare brand right now?
I love Drunk Elephant. They do a great range of skincare products for different concerns. My favourite product is the Slaai Makeup – Melting Butter Cleanser – this melts away makeup at the end of the day and leaves my skin feeling super clean, yet still hydrated.
Most women have trouble finding the perfect concealer that covers without enhancing fine lines and creases. What would you recommend?
The perfect concealer is dependent on your skin type and needs. I love the new Estée Lauder Custom Coverage Correcting Duo. One end is a lightweight serum that helps to hydrate the area beforehand and blur out any fine lines. The other is a medium/full coverage concealer which helps to get rid of dark circles. With the help of the serum first, it stays put all day and applies evenly.
