Elena Motinova, Ernest Muntaniol, Ekaterina Ponomareva and other best makeup artists in Russia talk about their favorite lip care products.
Ernest Muntaniol, Chanel's leading makeup artist in Russia:
Lip balm Hydra Beauty Nutrition, Chanel
One of the stages of preparation for makeup is lips. I apply this balm with camellia oil - it perfectly nourishes and moisturizes them. During the time that we distribute the tone and paint the eyes, the product has time to absorb - the lipstick is applied easily and neatly, and the lips look well-groomed.
Natalia Vlasova, founder of the Mosmake school of makeup artists:
Lip Balm Lip Care Soin Levres Him / Her Giorgio Armani
This balm can always be found in my purse. Not sticky, moisturizes lips - even in frost they will not dry out and chapped.
Love Balm Rose Jurlique Lip Balm
I do not like lip balms with menthol fragrances, I prefer floral ones. Jurlique is good not only for its moisturizing qualities, but also for its wonderful rose scent.
SOS High Definition Lip Balm
The High Definition brand specializes in eyebrow cosmetics, but the line also has a great lip balm. Versatile, it can be used for anything - even apply to your hands if you forget to grab the cream.
Elena Motinova, Chief Makeup Artist of Estée Lauder in Russia:
Balm Lip Volumizer, Estée Lauder
For workdays, opt for a light, comfortable texture - a light balm that will slightly plump your lips. My option for every sunny day is Lip Volumizer by Estée Lauder. Do not be intimidated by the pink applicator - the product gives almost no color. The effect is glossy, the taste is menthol. The brush is comfortable - the balm can be applied without a mirror.
Alexandra Kirienko, independent make-up artist:
Balm Top Secrets, Yves Saint Laurent
Before applying lipsticks, especially in winter, always apply lip balm - for example, Top Secrets from Yves Saint Laurent.
Olga Charandaeva, independent makeup artist:
Lip Balm Depsea Hydrability, Shu Uemura
I always use a gentle balm with beeswax and macadamia nut oil at the very beginning of makeup - so that it has time to be absorbed and prepares my lips for lipstick. Perfectly softens and heals small cracks.
Sergey Naumov, independent makeup artist:
Balm Basic Balm, Sergey Naumov
The next step is a lip mask. You need something greasy, oily. Remember 7 years ago MAC produced double-sided lipsticks? There was shine on one side and pigment on the other. I used the first remedy - left it on my lips for 10-15 minutes, and then blotted it with a napkin. Now I recommend my base balm - it will also work as a mask. The new version does not contain petroleum jelly - only mint, a complex of oils and natural preservatives.
Ekaterina Ponomareva, MAC Leading Makeup Artist in Russia and the CIS:
Prep + Prime Lip, MAC
Before applying a beautiful lipstick, I apply Prep + Prime Lip on my lips - due to the paraffin in the composition, this primer does not allow the lipstick to "spread", increases its durability, smoothes and softens the surface. Vitamin E heals cracks and is responsible for nutrition.
Anna Merkusheva, Leading Make Up Artist Make Up For Ever in Russia
Filler Lip Line Perfector, Make Up For Ever
Transparent "magician" for lips of any shade! I apply it over the entire surface to fill in raised or aged lips (wrinkles are filled in and the capricious matte lipstick lays down smoothly). This pencil works like a primer - it keeps the lipstick in a given shape. Even liquid textures do not flow. I am for comfort in everything - Lip Line Perfector envelops the lips with a moisturizing layer so that no dry lipstick will cause unpleasant sensations.
