Thanks to a number of innovative make-up ranges from leading cosmetic giant, Avon, I can bring you the celebrity make-up artist must-haves from global make-up artist,Lauren Andersen.
A self-proclaimed lipstick junkie, Los Angeles-based makeup artist Lauren Andersen has always been obsessed with all things gloss and mascara – a passion that has evolved from doing friends’ makeup in school to beautifying celebrities and clients as she travels the world as a spokesperson for Avon. Her philosophy? Helping women look and feel like their best selves.
“How did she get there?” It’s a question we often ask ourselves when admiring a woman who has risen through the ranks. Our new video series, “Finding My Way,” is an exploration of the winding career paths we follow—the ups, the downs, the ‘aha’ moments, and when it’s a good idea to stop to ask for directions along the way. We kick off this series with Lauren Andersen, Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist.
Andersen fell in love with makeup at a young age (her mother was an Avon Representative), but she didn’t realise she could one day turn her passion into a livelihood until high school.
“As a celebrity makeup artist, I often have a very early 5 a.m. wakeup call to be on set. I know I can quickly put on a powerful red lipstick and my face will instantly look brighter. The color signifies that I’m awake and prepared — even when I catch my own reflection, it lifts my mood. When I’m working there’s no time to give myself touchups, and a soft matte red stays on throughout the day. I’m a big fan of Avon's Mark Range.
When selecting a shade for a client, I generally have her entire head-to-toe look in mind. What’s the event? What is she wearing? But when picking a shade for myself, it’s a bit more emotional. I have always loved lipstick and have worn every color there is. It’s trial and error — if a shade doesn’t work, I’ll wipe it off and try something else. When I want to make a statement, I find myself reaching for that happy cherry red. It’s classic and bold, and makes me feel that way, too. And when I do a bold lip on myself, sometimes it inspires my client to take more of a chance on her own makeup.”
