Living in LA, Kyle Richards knows all too well that every time she leaves the house, there’s a possibility she may be on camera, so she needs to be camera-ready.
Even when she’s at home, Kyle must look her best for the RHOBH cameras.
Luckily she has some great people helping her.
Kyle Richards’ makeup artist, Thierry Pourtoy, reveals what keeps her looking great at all times on ABeautyLoft.com.
Thierry is one of the most sought after artists in Hollywood.
His work can be seen at high-end Hollywood events like the Oscars, Golden Globes and the Emmys.
Secret #1: The Right Foundation
Thierry reveals that Kyle is beautiful without makeup and has great skin, so he goes light on the foundation. Make Up Forever HD base (which is known for high coverage and camera-ready skin), and only powder on the T-Zone.
Secret #2: Shimmery Eyes
He adds shimmer to her lids and inner corner, and dark brown, eggplant or black eyeliner. He uses the Bare Escentuals eye shadows with rose gold or bronzed high shine eye color.
Secret #3: Get the Glow
To get the glow, Thierry uses cream blush, highlighter and contour. He uses his own cream blush, Palette maquillage, in Flatter, Privilege and Lullaby. On her eyes, he says it’s all in the blending – and uses cream blush and highlighter for the glow.
Secret #4: Lashes, lashes, and more lashes
All Thierry has to say about this one: lots of individual lashes.
Secret #5: Start with Great Skin
Kyle and her famous family all take care of their skin regularly. They get facials and use a skin care regime to keep their skin flawless.
Common makeup mistakes
Thierry was born and trained as a professional in France, where women focus more on facials, products, and simple makeup – just lips, mascara, and blush.
Here are some common mistakes women make when it comes to their makeup:
- Foundation that does not match your skin color
- Too much makeup on the eyes
- Not enough highlighter at night
- Too much or not enough makeup
As you get older you lose colors on your face, but you can bring it back with foundation, blush, and lip products. Formulas are so light now it’s much easier to blend.
Use products that are well suited to your skin and go to a professional makeup artist for updates twice a year.
You Too Can Hire Thierry
Thierry has long relationships with multiple celebrity clients, and his work has appeared in magazines like Vogue, InStyle, Vanity Fair and Harpers Bazaar.
Even though he’s a makeup artist for the stars – he is also available for hire for your next big affair if you live in LA. Working with the prestigious Christophe Salon, he offers on-location services to his clients.
