Time to introduce you guys to a talented MUA in my family, Analise!
Analise is a makeup artist in the Hudson Valley, NY area from Beacon, NY. She has been doing makeup for about 10 years now. She’s worked for widely known makeup companies and has received her license in makeup and esthetics. She loves helping women feel beautiful, just by enhancing their natural beauty. She has always loved wearing makeup. Her mother never wore makeup and always said, “I don’t know who you came out like.” She has always been intrigued with skin and the science behind it. She was a nursing student at one point and was always drawn to the different skin conditions. After working for different makeup companies, she decided to expand my knowledge with skin care. She takes pride in her work and loves what she does.
What is your favorite high-end brand?
Hands down MAC cosmetics. I also like using Makeup For Ever and some Urban Decay.
What are 3 makeup items you couldn’t possibly live without?
I can’t even walk out of the door without wearing mascara. So it would have to be mascara, blush, and lip gloss.
What’s your favorite drugstore brand?
I have been liking Milani and L’oreal. I have a couple shadows that have been my go to everyday look.
What type of beauty product do you buy the most of (mascaras, concealers, lipsticks etc)?
Mascara is what I buy the most. I go through it like water.
What is the most common makeup faux pas that you see?
I would have to say overdrawn brows. There is a finely drawn line between bold brows and something over-the-top.
Do you have a “beauty budget” or do you spend freely?
I try very hard to have a budget, but you always see something new you want to try that gets added to the basket.
What’s your favorite lipstick?
These days I have been loving “Twig” from MAC. Its a soft muted brownish pink. Great fall color.
Describe your everyday makeup look.
Everyday makeup routine after my skin care is using at least 3 eye shadows. Depending on the look I am going for and how much time I have. A gel liner and some mascara. I apply foundation followed by some powder and then blush. I top the look off with a lipstick and gloss.
What’s your favorite mascara?
Haute and Naughty from MAC is my favorite and have been using it for years.
Is there any celebrity that you get your makeup inspiration from & why that celebrity?
Some celebrities that I am usually inspired by are Rihanna and Kim Kardashian. Both have different looks but I like to experiment with them. It ranges all the way from the soft neutrals to dramatic.
Do you have some favorite beauty gurus? If so, who?
Jaclyn Hill. She really shows you in depth how to achieve a particular look using not only high end products but drugstore brands as well.
If you could leave the house with only ONE makeup product, which would it be?
That would be mascara. I can not and will not leave the house without it.
Are there any brands that you try to avoid?
I really do not avoid any. I like trying new products and experimenting with them.
Do you usually “haul” or buy items here & there?
Both. I buy here and there. When I am running low of a few things, I tend to stock up and go on a beauty haul.
What’s your favorite skincare brand?
I like using Murad, Skinceuticals, and Eminence.
What is one beauty tool/brush that you’d recommend to anyone?
A blending brush!! That is a must.
What is one beauty product that you’d recommend to ANYONE & why?
Urban Decay setting spray. AMAZING!! That will hold your makeup in place all day and night. It is also very hydrating as well.
If you had to give up one makeup item for the rest of your life, which would it be?
I would give up using eye shadows.
What is your absolute pet peeve when it comes to other people’s makeup?
Hard Lines. BLEND, BLEND, BLEND!
Share a beauty tip/trick/hack.. whatever you’d like to call it. Lol
For a perfect cat eye. Use scotch tape on the corners of your eyes, following your bottom lash line. This will guide you to make the perfect line.
What’s the best way for future clients to reach you?
