7 Tips from Lady Gaga’s Makeup Artist!

December 5, 2012

Holiday parties are in full swing, so we know you’re busy looking to spice up your already fabulous fashion. Who better to teach you how to take a fashion risk than the queen of crazy style herself, Lady Gaga? We talked to Gaga’s makeup artist, Sarah Tanno, and Sarah gave us tons of helpful tips for glamming up your makeup routine. Some of the products are a little bit on the pricey side, but they’d make great additions to your gift wishlist! Check out her advice for eyes, lips and more!

Foundation: NARS Sheer Matte Foundation ($42)
“I love this brand and I love this foundation because it offers excellent coverage and a matte finish,” Sarah said.

Laura Mercier
Concealer: Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage ($30)
“This concealer is perfection! It allows you to blend shades to come up with a custom shade for your own skin. I recommend this to everyone, it’s long-wear and conceals all imperfections,” Sarah said.

Cheek Stain: Becca Beach Tint ($25)
“This fun, blendable crème stain offers a natural flush to the cheeks, I love it because you can also use it on your lips!” Sarah said.

Makeup Forever
Eyeliner: Makeup Forever Aqua Gel Eye ($18)
“This liner glides on effortlessly and does not budge! It comes in so many different colors and I have every one – it’s amazing!” Sarah said.

Mascara: Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara (19)
“This mascara gives long, luscious, full lashes camera ready lashes with no flaking or clumping! I’m obsessed with it and my clients can’t get enough,” Sarah said.

Lips: Prep + Prime Lip ($16)
“This primer is designed specifically for the lips. It’s color free and can be used with any lipstick or lipgloss. Just apply it beforehand and it improves the appearance of your lips, giving you a sexy, refined, in-place pout,” Sarah said.

Setting Spray: Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray ($29)
“It’s the last step, but certainly not the least. I absolutely love this stuff! It’s like a genie in a little black bottle. I never let a client leave my chair without spraying them with my secret weapon for picture perfect makeup. I use the No More Shine formula on my clients while touring and through all the dancing, singing and sweating, their makeup remains. The only touch-ups needed are a spritz or two of Skindinavia during intermission, and the show goes on; no makeup meltdowns or messes. This is a staple in my makeup bag,” Sarah said.
