Celebrity Makeup Artist James Vincent Drops Gems

My dear dear friend and professional makeup artist mentor, James Vincent, shares his top 5 beauty product musts. Let’s prep our shopping list, shall we?!

Embryolisse, Lait-Crème Concentre

The makeup artist must have and cult favorite is perfect for any skin tone and skin type and keeps the skin looking refreshed and revived.”



My secret weapon for HD or everyday photo. It prepares the skin for foundation and makes makeup last all day while feeling like there is nothing there. If I could let my clients bathe in it I would.”

Yves Saint Laurent, Touche Eclat

A must have for every woman and every artist. This product is one of my favorite tricks for bringing light to the under eye and lifting and opening up every eye.”

Kevyn Aucoin, The Sensual Skin Enhancer

A little goes a long way with this foundation that can give light to full coverage and always look like skin.”

Stila Cosmetics, Convertible Color

Perfect for a natural flush or a fashion forward blush, I love this on the apple of the cheek or the cheekbone. My trick is to use some before foundation to give the illusion that the blush is glowing from beneath the skin.”

From time to time the good folks from various brands, PR companies, and marketing firms graciously provide product to ThisThatBeauty for editorial consideration. Much appreciated! However, ThisThatBeauty readers can take comfort in knowing that gratis product has never nor will it ever guarantee a mention on my little old blog. Simply put, I write about whatever I darn well please. Thank you very much!
