Rosie HW's Makeup Artist Is Really Over These Beauty Mistakes

Amanda Montell

As beauty editors, we geek out over celebrity makeup artists even more than we do over actual celebrities. In Los Angeles, there are only about 25 makeup artists who work with the top-tier entertainers on photos shoots and red carpets, and every time we get to meet an artist from this exclusive list, we sort of flip out (and then make them tell us their best tips).

Getting to meet Kara Yoshimoto Bua was a particular fangirl moment. Even if you don't know her by name, you definitely know her work. The incredibly talented official Chanel makeup artist has painted the faces of literally all our favourite people: Lily Collins, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravtiz, Emma Watson, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Halle Berry (I could go on). Oh, and did I mention she's one of the nicest, chillest ladies in the business?

Earlier this year, we hung out with Bua for a few hours as she re-created one of Jessica Biel's red carpet looks on me (we captured the whole thing on Facebook Live). She squeezed tons of cool makeup tricks into that afternoon, but we decided we wanted to pick her brain even more. So we asked our Instagram followers to submit a few more makeup questions for Bua, chose a few, and scored her answers. Keep scrolling to learn six essential makeup tips from the genius who does Zoë Kravitz's and Rosie HW's makeup!
