Enough girl talk, because this beauty buff post is all about a man. Did you think women were the only makeup lovers? If so, you’re dead wrong because Isaac Meyers doesn't just love makeup, he’s an expert in it.
Born and raised in Salt Lake City, he has been drawing and painting ever since he could hold a pencil, and over time makeup became his creative outlet. His career started when he was 18 and moved to Arizona to work for MAC Cosmetics. He later worked in Hollywood doing makeup for the film and entertainment industry. He's had the pleasure of working with Etta James, Rihanna, Sigorney Weaver, Ethel Kennedy, Octavia Spencer, Rob Lowe and Ray Liotta. Can you imagine that?
Just two years ago, Meyers moved back home to Salt Lake City. You can now find him working with the Utah Film Commission, KSL, and The Sundance Institute, and also as a Pro Artist for L’Oréal Paris and Maybelline NY on their red carpet events nationwide.
We had the pleasure of talking to Meyers, and he revealed a big mistake women make when it comes to makeup. Check it out!
Q. Isaac, we’re dying to get your take on the fall's top makeup trends.
A. "The perfect makeup for fall is NARS Andy Warhol Collection available at Sephora. We're seeing a lot of neon colors incorporated in the day and evening looks include a lot of gold eyeshadow combined with dark lips. My favorite lipstick for this fall is MAC Cosmetics Yung Rapunxel, a dark creamy texture that easily glides on the lips."
Q. It’s getting cold out, and time for us to stock up on lotion. What are the best dry skin solutions?
A. "My favorite products for dry skin are Bio Oil, which I use at night, and Exuviance Age Reverse Day Repair SPF 20. I use the Bio Oil in the evening, and its excellent for dehydration, sun spots, texture, fine lines and deep wrinkles. During the day, I use the Exuviance. You can find both products at Ulta."
Q. If you could name one big mistake women make when it comes to makeup what would it be?
"I think the biggest mistake is a lot of women don't apply eyeshadow before they apply the foundation. The reason for this is that eyeshadow tends to fall on the face and you end of having to clean and remove the excess from under the eye."
Great tips from Isaac Meyers!
