Mind your manners

The consensus from makeup artistis? The makeup industry is small. And word travels fast, so be kind to your makeup artist. If you’re rude to one of us, chances are everyone in the industry locally will know about your behavior too. As one Minnesota makeup artist admits, “Yes, sometimes we say we’re booked—when we’re really not—to avoid doing your makeup.”

“No. 2 pencils are the perfect graphite shade to sketch in natural eyebrow hairs. Sharpen one to a point and draw in lightly for a finished brow.” —James Vincent, celebrity makeup artist and director of artistry for Ardency Inn

“Gold powder pigment is a great way to lengthen lashes or brows. Use a clean spoolie brush, toothbrush, or mascara wand, and brush a bronze or yellow gold pigment through a mascared lash or brow for a beautiful effect that adds dimension without looking hard.” —James Vincent, celebrity makeup artist and director of artistry for Ardency Inn

“Apply a nourishing balm to your eyebrows before going to bed. This will guarantee extra strength and growth—thicker eyebrows in two weeks.” —Terry de Gunzburg, founder of By Terry
