Whether Sadie’s filming an online workout or a video for the media, hair and makeup artist Meghan Stoll always gets her looking camera ready. Today, we’re excited to share some of Meghan’s makeup tips for radiant-looking skin. Read on to learn more from Meghan herself.

1. For a fresh face: Everyone needs a great tinted moisturizer or Beauty Balm (BB) cream to moisturize and protect their skin. It’s also an amazing way to correct any blemishes. I love anything from Laura Mercier. Stila’s tinted moisturizer is also one of my favorites. Both brands offer products with a finish that’s flawless and not overly dewy while still providing seamless coverage. When selecting a cream, choose a color that’s one shade more golden than your skin tone to illuminate your face. Also, if you have extremely oily skin or if your skin gets shiny after applying your tinted moisturizer, I recommend that you use Laura Mercier’s Secret Brightening Powder later in the day. It’s light, goes on easily, and will leave you with a fresh, natural finish.

2. For vibrant cheeks: Adding color to the cheeks is youthful, fun, and gorgeous on everyone. Creme blushes are best for an easy and carefree summer look. Ladyblush by MAC is a color that looks incredible on a variety of skin tones. To apply blush, just dab your finger in the creme blush, smile, and then blend it in the apple of your cheek and outwards.

3. For long, lush lashes: For me, curling my eyelashes is a must. Curling lashes lifts and opens the eyes. Be careful that your lash curler actually curls and doesn’t crimp your lashes instead. My favorite curlers on the market now are from Nars and Bobbi Brown. If you use your curler daily, you’ll need to replace it every four months.

4. For healthy, beautiful lips: Wearing some color on your lips is an easy way to take your look to the next level. I like using a tinted chapstick with SPF, lip gloss, or a soft, moisturizing, sheer lipstick. Lean towards your natural lip color; pink generally flatters everyone. Check out MAC’s lipsticks—they have great staying power and I love the way they feel.

When it comes to makeup, the best piece of advice I can give is this: less is more! No matter which products you use, a heavy-handed approach actually detracts from your natural beauty and can even make you look older. The idea is to look like the best possible you, not a vamped-up version of someone else.  To me, nothing is more beautiful than a confident woman with minimal evidence of makeup!

  1. I’d love to see suggestions for all natural beauty products and companies. I am slowly trading all of my traditional make-up to natural products and I am always looking for suggestions. What we put on our skin is just as important as what we put in our bodies!
