Natalya’s Makeup Advice
I’ve loved makeup since as long as I can remember! Including rifling through my mom’s makeup bag as a kid…trying on her lipsticks, playing with her foundation and wondering about the secrets of a great mascara!
As I grew up, I fell in love with makeup even more! I remember being 15, working at a small family diner for $5 an hour (insert tears!) and a portion of my paycheck went to buying a $30 Chanel Lip Gloss…… craziness! But that perfect lip gloss was SO worth it…Now I don’t leave home without my wallet and my lip gloss! (MAC clear Lipglass is my baby!)
I also was turned on to the book “Making Faces” by Kevin Aucoin. It’s a book all about the incredible transformation that makeup can have on a person. I remember that book in particular really fascinating me. Makeup could change the way a person looked and felt in the best possible ways! I was in love.
It wasn’t until I was older that I started working with great makeup artists and understanding that not all makeup is created equal. I learned that we all have a little Picasso in us with a paint brush and the perfect product!
I’ve also learned that it’s important to have a great moisturizer on before you put on any makeup at all. To keep your make up set and perfectly in place, especially in the summer, I add a little primer into the moisturizer. Smashbox has my favorite primers and I love the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer. It’s a product that’s great for all skin types, even sensitive skin like mine. I evenly apply my foundation after to my entire face. I love the coverage (without the heaviness) I get from Makeup Forever HD Foundation. Perfect for everyday life and television (you know, for those times on Smackdown Live where I have to be on TV tapping girls out to my submission move: The Sharpshooter!)
If you are someone like me that rarely sleeps, catches flights, and is driving across the country and self admittedly burning the candle at both ends (crying inside again lol) — you have to have a great concealer. In fact, that’s non-negotiable! NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is amazing and goes on so light for the summer months. You won’t feel this concealer slide … EVER! Pinky promise.
Now that we are going into summer, I strive to have the perfect glow but I also don’t want to have a heavy face of makeup on, either. Sometimes less is more with the highlighter and bronzer. But I still want my summer GLOW! The Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit is one of my new favorites. There’s a wide choice of fun colors that’ll make your skin pop in one palette (6 to be exact!) I just got this palette for our Glow Queen Naomi and she’s obsessed. Plus Naomi knows I’m taking that Women’s Championship from her soon!
