Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to interview celebrity makeup artist Bruce Grayson, the makeup supervisor, for the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards. He had so many tips to share with you all, and I hope you find a few to add to your beauty routine!
Temptalia: What should you do if you know you’re going to be photographed a lot? How do you start preparing in advance? What would you recommend us doing a month in advance? A week?
Grayson: If you’re a month out, going to the prom, starring on a Broadway show… It’s always good to get your skin in shape. That means not eating too much salt, using a great moisturizer that’s anti-aging daily, getting the full benefits of it — six weeks at least. If you’re a week out, you can still drink a ton of water, get your skin in shape with moisturizer cream, eye cream, intense moisturizing cream at night. It’s a 24/7 operation. Double up on the things you would do. UV protection always. Exfoliate everyday if you know you have an event.
Temptalia: How can one achieve the flawless skin of red carpet starlets at home?
Grayson: Get the skin in shape again, start using anti-aging moisturizer everyday daily. I love Olay Definity Color Tinted Moisturizer. It’s great for the day time, hads SPF, gives you a “dewy fresh” appearance with more coverage than a regular tinted moisturizer. It gives you the glowy effect instantly. Less is best–less eyeshadow, less contouring.
