The Face's Ultimate Guide to Makeup
"It takes a village..." is one of our mottos for season 2 of The Face. Meaning: the show's huge crew is all working together to mentor ultra-promising young models so that one becomes the next omnipresent face of fashion. And despite toiling behind the scenes, the all-star makeup artists of The Face play a pivotal part in that process.
The team includes Jasen Kaplan (working with Lydia Hearst), who has collaborated with heavyweight designers like Marc Jacobs and counts Eva Longoria and Sharon Stone among his celebrity clients. It also includes Quinn Murphy, who works with Anne V and celebs like Mariah Carey and Anne Hathaway. And then there's Renee Garnes, who not only does makeup for NAOMI CAMPBELL but also Kate Moss, Rita Ora and others. In short, this is The Glam Squad Dream Team. See their tips below and follow The Face on Facebook all season long for more.
