Earlier this year I interviewed Ingrid Grimes-Myles, makeup artist to Mrs. Obama. The beauty industry vet shared her tips on how the First Lady’s look can be recreated on a budget.
Keep It Simple
“You shouldn’t have to worry about your makeup from sunup to sundown. Just powder your face and touch up your lip.”
“It looks unnatural to have big red or pink cheeks. I tend to go for a very minimalist look on blush.”
“You don’t have to spend a lot on beauty. Go into a drugstore and look for a simple cleanser and a very good moisturizer that doesn’t have a lot of additives.”
