Denise Fusers, 19, is a makeup artist from the Netherlands. After taking a class called “Visagie” in school she did the makeup for a play, Antigone, and realized that she loved the beauty world. She signed up for beauty school and just finished her second year. After this, she wants to be an international makeup artist specializing in Hollywood special effects. Basically, she's an expert (and she wears pearl bracelets really well). So we talked to Denise about her top three favorite beauty products:
1. My favorite mascara is Inimitable by Chanel ($30); the structure of the brush is so great. It’s also the brush that comes with the more affordable MAX Factor Masterpiece Mascara (hint: buy it from the UK for around $10).
2. I love glamour--what girl doesn’t? The eye shadow I use for a glamorous look is Quadra Eye Shadow by Chanel (splurge alert! $56). And for my eyeliner I love to use a hard pencil not a soft one. For people who like to blend, use a soft pencil. But you can also blend a hard pencil by using eye shadow on the pencil line to create smoky eyes. I used a lot of different eyeliner pencils from Lancôme ($23) and L'Oreal ($9).
3. For my lips I love to use a lot of lip glosses (I’m a bit of a lip gloss addict). Almost all my lip glosses are from Bourjois ($12-$15) they have the most incredible line!
