Makeup Tips from a YouTube Beauty Master
While the photogs and fashion editors were busy gawking at the celebs who turned out for Chris Benzs Spring 2011 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week presentation (Carmen Electra, Kelly Osbourne, and Denise Richards were just some of the boldfaced names checking out the designers latest creations), we found the biggest star working her butt off backstage. YouTube sensation and Lancôme video makeup artist Michelle Phan is famous in the beauty world for her easy-to-follow video makeup tutorials that garner millions of views. Shes become such a celebrity in her own right that during an appearance for Lancôme at Sephora during this past Fashions Night Out, hundreds of girls lined up to get their picture taken with her. We snagged Phan while she was in between models and asked her what three Lancôme products she absolutely cant live without.
Le Crayon Khôl in Blanc
"I give this white eyeliner to all of my makeup artist friends. It goes on really smooth and is very pigmented, which makes it multifunctional. I use it to highlight the inner corners, the brow bones, and the center of the lids to make the eyes pop. Apply it in small dashes then use the warmth of your finger to blend it."
Définicils Precious Cells Mascara
"When I wear a lot of mascara I notice that my lashes fall out. This formula actually improves the condition of lashes so they are stronger and healthier."
Tropiques Minérale Bronzer
"I use this matte bronzer to contour. Apply it in the shape of a 3 on each side of your face so it hits your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline."
