Having worked on some of the most famous faces in Hollywood including Charlize Theron, Blake Lively and Jennifer Lopez, Kristofer Buckle shares some of his best tips on looking good this summer with Relaxnews.
Kristofer's first piece of advice for the perfect summer look? Less is more.
"This summer is a great time to do the most minimal look. The ‘no-makeup' look. Just some mascara, a bit of bronzed blush and a sheer lip color," he explains.
"Very fresh skin with just a wash of a transparent pastel on the eye and a bit of mascara is also a great look this summer."
The artist cites Gossip Girl star Blake Lively as a great source for fresh and colorful summer beauty inspiration.
"Recently I did Blake Lively for a shoot. I kept her bronzed with a hint of coral on the cheek. I used a muted plum eyeshadow that really brought out her green eyes; her lips were a nude color with a dot of fushia blended in to keep it fresh looking," says Kristofer.
When it comes to getting ready for the beach, the makeup guru emphasizes the importance of waterproof products.
"Waterproof mascara magnifies the eyes and doesn't look messy in the heat or humidity," he explains, adding that waterproof concealer needn't be reserved just for the face.
"If you have bruises or veins on your legs cover them up with some waterproof concealer."
And when it comes to looking good in holiday snaps, Kristofer urges the importance of limiting shine.
"Make sure the center of your forehead sides of nose and around mouth and chin are powdered. This will help avoid hard reflections on the skin and reduce the appearance of texture," says the cosmetics expert.
"Also, avoid extremely glossy lips or very shiny eye shadow. It can look messy and distracting."
Kristofer Buckle has also worked on stars including Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna and Salma Hayek.
