Top 10 Questions at Maison Weiss Makeup Counter

Makeup Artist, Maison Weiss
How can I make my makeup stay on?
I recommend Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. There is one for every skin type and when applied under foundation your makeup lasts all day or night.
How can I make my lashes look longer and fuller?
I recommend NeuLash. When applied nightly on a clean lash line, your lashes grow longer and fuller. Then, when topped with Trish McEvoy’s Lash Building or High Volume Mascara, your lashes will look a mile long!
How can I make my skin look more vibrant and radiant?
I recommend La Prairie Radiance Cream. This cream is amazing. It smooths the skin and brings back that glow that we all lose somewhere along the way.
How can I make my eyes “pop”? Fill in you brows.
You will not believe the difference this little step makes. Our brows frame our face and really pull together the whole look. Remember, your brows look best when they match the darkest part of your hair. I recommend Laura Mercier Eye Brow Duos. These waterproof eye shadows were made specifically for the brow.
How can I keep my eyeliner from running down my face?
I recommend Bobbi Browns Gel Eyeliner. These little pots of liner are waterproof and a cinch to apply when paired with Bobbi’s Ultra Fine Liner Brush.
How can I brighten under my eyes and keep my concealer from settling into fine lines?
I recommend , La Prairie Cellular Light – fantastic concealer! This is great for people that need to brighten and conceal. Now for all you lucky young things out there… Laura Mercier makes a great eye brightener. Secret Brightening Pen is beautiful alone or under concealer.
What’s your most popular fragrance?
There are so many from which to choose! Hermes, Bond No. 9, Creed and Clive Christian seem to be the HOT sellers right now.
Do I need a bronzer?
More often than not the answer is yes. Trish McEvoy, Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier all have bronzers that I recommend. Flat, shiny, golden or neutral – there is bound to be one that is right for you.
Should I be using eye makeup remover?
Yes, Yes, Yes! Get that mascara off every night! Leaving mascara on while you sleep can make your lashes brittle and weak. I recommend Erno Laszlo Multi-Phase Makeup Remover. Soothing, yet powerful. Your lashes will thank you.
How can I keep my fragrance from fading as the day goes on?
I recommend using an eau de parfum over an eau de toilette. If this doesn’t make a difference try applying a matching body cream or lotion prior to spritzing. This really helps especially if used just after a shower or bath when your pores are open and ready to soak in the scent.
