Now here are some of the tips and pieces of advice by the super talented makeup artist, Mickey Contractor-
His views on the need for moisturizing skin-
“I think moisturizing should start pretty early in life. Men and women both should start moisturizing regularly by the time they are 24-25. It’s the one thing I’d strongly advise. If your skin is well moisturized, everything is good. That way even the white flakiness and dryness that happens can be avoided and consequently, makeup doesn’t look flaky. Moisturizing is what makes your skin look healthy.”
His advice for girls who are in their early twenties-
“Avoid using oil-based moisturizers because sometimes the skin may react to them. Use water-based moisturizers, they do a good job of keeping skin healthy.”
Some of his makeup tips for the summer season-
“When it’s excessively hot, using foundation is important because it ensures that the makeup doesn’t become patchy or blotchy. Try to stay away from cream products, especially in the daytime because they start to bleed all over your face. Use powders instead, like a powder blush instead of a cream blush because it looks too oily and shiny.”
