Celebrity Makeup Artist, AJ Crimson's, Pop-Up Shop Seminar!

The Makeup Show's Holiday Pop-Up Shop was not only an opportunity to get pro-discounts on popular cosmetic brands, but also to witness certain makeup masters at work....such as celebrity makeup artist, AJ Crimson!  I was looking forward to seeing him live, up-close, and in color, as I recently began watching his YouTube videos online.  If you don't know who he is....AJ Crimson has worked with celebs such as Fergie, Keri Hilson, Estelle, Brandy, Amerie, Letoya Luckett and the list goes on!  Check out these highlights from AJ's seminar (PHOTOS included)...


He uses baby oil gel mixed with cream foundation on his celebrity clients to get that "nice glow" for red carpets and photos shoots.

He uses Make Up For Ever's powder in Zero to set under the eyes, NOT the HD Invisible Microfinish Powder!   * We had a quick little exchange about this after the seminar.

knewstuff,bookmark,star,favouriteHe uses a Mascara Sheild (by Myrabelle Products) to protect the lids from getting messed up when applying mascara.  When he doesn't have his mascara shield, he uses a wedged sponge.

knewstuff,bookmark,star,favourite He prefers cream blushes over powder blushes, as he feels they are more natural-looking (he applies by dabbing onto the cheeks with his finger-tips).
