Celebrity makeup artists are like gatekeepers to the best products, treatments, and techniques for maintaining glowing skin. They have access to all the top brands and beauty experts and regularly touch the faces of some of the world’s most famous women, so they know a thing or two when it comes to creating a youthful appearance. Some of the techniques they use are better left to the pros, but I wanted to know the easy tricks that we mere mortals could use in our day-to-day routines to amp up our makeup looks.
I reached out to celebrity makeup artist Sofia Tilbury, who counts Candice Swanepoel, Shanina Shaik, Sienna Miller, and Irina Shayk as clients. She also happens to be the niece of Charlotte Tilbury, one of the most famous makeup artists of all time, so she has a few tricks up her sleeve worth noting. She revealed her top four makeup tips to look younger, and they’re all surprisingly easy to do. From the first step she does on every face she works on to the lip-enhancing technique that creates a full pout, below are her best tips for a youthful glow.
