I have had the great pleasure on doing the beautiful Betsy Brandt’s makeup this week when she was in town promoting the highly anticipated Season 5 of Breaking Bad. It’s ok if you are under a rock and not watching, I was there too. I even did her makeup before (see below) only having had an episode or two under my belt. It’s ok. You can get all the seasons now on Netflix and thank me here when you are finished.
When doing Betsy’s makeup it’s all about enhancing with minimal makeup. Oh wait, that is my theory for everyone! I love to use Smashbox High Definition Healthy FX Foundation on her, and I use it with my buddy That Gal from Benefit. For events, I like to take a Q-Tip and use Benetint on her lips and cheeks, then slide a gloss on. They’re Real mascara is a must, and Smashbox Soft Lights make everything camera ready.
For TV, shine is not the look I go for, but for photos at an event, I always highlight the cheek bone as much as possible because the lights dance perfectly- especially on the products listed and the effect is flawless skin and a healthy glow that looks like amazing skin, not a wet, greasy, dewy look.
Though I don’t put purple on Betsy, we all know Marie is obsessed with it, so I thought I should mention my favorite purple which is Smashbox’s Limitless 15 Hour Wear Cream Shadow.
Now enjoy Season 5 with the rest of the world!
