Hey lovelies! I think it’s about damn time that MUA Spotlight had a male on the series! So let me introduce the talented Matthew Robinson. Matthew is 22 years old and originally from 22, originally from Wichita, KS but now residing in KCMO. He is the middle child of 2 sister so was exposed to him at a very young age. He’s always been fascinated by makeup and what you can do with it.
What is your favorite high-end brand?
Probably Hourglass and YSL. I’m sorry I can’t pick between my all time loves.
What are 3 makeup items you couldn’t possibly live without?
Just three?! Ahhh beauty blender, foundation, and bronzer I guess lol.
What’s your favorite drugstore brand?
What type of beauty product do you buy the most of (mascaras, concealers, lipsticks etc)?
I can’t leave a store without buying eyeshadow. Like it’s becoming a problem actually haha.
What is the most common makeup faux pas that you see?
Do you have a “beauty budget” or do you spend freely?
I would love to spend freely but she’s a working girl so we tend to budget.
What’s your favorite lipstick?
Describe your everyday makeup look.
“She’s tired but she’s here”
What’s your favorite mascara?
YSL baby doll!!!! Tons of length without any clump!
Is there any celebrity that you get your makeup inspiration from & why that celebrity?
So many honestly, but my biggest is Sutan Amrull – otherwise known as Raja. He is the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 3 and he is amazing. I would love to meet and talk with him one day. He is living art.
Do you have some favorite beauty gurus? If so, who?
I love Manny Mua, Chrisspy, and GiGi Gorgeous. So funny and REAL PEOPLE.
If you could leave the house with only ONE makeup product, which would it be?
Are there any brands that you try to avoid?
I love to try anything honestly. Of course I don’t like some stuff but I don’t avoid anything really.
Do you usually “haul” or buy items here & there?
I mainly buy here and there because I feel better spending a lot over time rather than in just one day haha but sometimes my “necessities” trips turn crazy real quick.
What’s your favorite skincare brand?
Estēe Lauder skincare is the bee’s knees!! If you aren’t using Advanced Night Repair you should go try it now!!
What is one beauty tool/brush that you’d recommend to anyone?
Beauty blender for everyone!!
What is one beauty product that you’d recommend to ANYONE & why?
Double wear foundation from Estée Lauder is a dream!! Full coverage and it literally lasts until you wipe it off, not kidding!
If you had to give up one makeup item for the rest of your life, which would it be?
I guess blush..
What is your absolute pet peeve when it comes to other people’s makeup?
My biggest pet peeve would have to be eyebrows. Use the rule of three from the apple of your cheek or don’t fill in your brows.
Share a beauty tip/trick/hack.. whatever you’d like to call it. Lol
When you’re at a counter, smear the lipstick on your finger tip and then hold it in front of your mouth, it shows you how that color would look on your skin without actually applying it.
What’s the best way for future clients to reach you?
