If you think Kim K and trusted make-up artist Mario were the leaders of the pack when it came to glam squad make-up done right? Then think again and say hello to Vincent Oquendo.
The man behind a million perfectly made up faces, think Karlie Kloss, Ashley Graham, Hailey Baldwin and of course the one and only Bella Hadid!
If you have always wanted to nail Bella's perfect smokey eyes, highlighted cheekbones and the flawless foundation application she is known for then get out your notepads and take note from the best in the biz.
Here are Vincent's top 5 tips to nailing a flawless face just like Bella's as told to Harpers Bazaar.
1. WARM UP YOUR SKIN
I love a warm complexion. My girls never pay attention when I do their makeup, but I always go warmer with their foundation. And then the times that they've seen me do it when they pay attention in the mirror, they're like, 'Vincent, that's too dark! What are you doing?' Because women are always paler on their face than they are on their bodies, so when you're doing them for a red carpet you need to go a little warmer.
2. APPLY FOUNDATION WITHA BLUSH BRUSH (OR BEAUTYBLENDER)
I really hate when a makeup looks cakey, so this is the anti-cake. It just gives you that beautiful veil and it feels really nice on the skin. I also love the Beautyblender. One thing to remember with the Beautyblender, if you don't wet it, then it absorbs a lot of your product because it's a dry sponge. Example: If you're washing your dishes at home and the sponge is all dry, and then you put dish detergent on the dry sponge, you can't wash dishes like that because it absorbs.
3. CONTOUR YOUR FOREHEAD
If you're getting photographed, even with sheer foundation, when the flash hits it, it'll flatten out your forehead and you'll look like you're wearing too much makeup. So if you warm around the hairline it gives you the depth, because not everybody is all one colour. The beauty of a face is the different tones; that's what makes a face so interesting—all that depth, all those freckles, all those high points, all those low points.
4. RESIST THE URGE TO OVERFILL BROWS
One trend that I'd like to see go away is super overdone brows. I love to fill in sparse brows with powder. If you have serious holes, I like the Brow Wiz by Anastasia. Use that and just go in and define the brows. I like brows to stay up and look really feathered.
5. TRAVEL-PROOF YOUR MASCARA
I'm so obsessed with Marc Jacobs Ultra-Skinny Mascara. There's no clumps, it's just heaven. I put this on Ashley [Graham] before and she's gone on a plane to L.A., and she said her makeup didn't move from this.
