Miranda Kerr's Makeup Artist Shares Her Secrets

EXCLUSIVE: Miranda Kerr's Makeup Artist Shares Her Secrets!

When Miranda Kerr comes home, it's Aussie makeup artist Allison Boyle that she calls upon to to give her that gorgeous glow. And with Miranda recently in Sydney to promote her Kora Organics beauty line, as well as walk in the David Jones Spring/Summer parade, we asked Allison to share her trade secrets for looking as effortlessly elegant as Miranda at home.

What do celebrities like Natalie Imbruglia and Miranda ask for when they work with you? Luminous is a key word so sheer foundation is a must. You want the skin to look natural and not heavily made-up. They both have amazing eyes so we make them a feature with a few coats of mascara and even a few lashes. Lining inside the eye can be a great effect as well, use a black pencil for evening. Nude pencil (instead of white) for day can really make the eyes wide awake or we go with a bronze-brown for a sexy daytime look. Use bronzer to contour cheeks and give a healthy glow and add a pop of peach or soft pink on the cheek. Miranda also loves a red stain on her lip, which looks amazing in Winter or Summer with a light tan.

Read the full interview now!Miranda’s famous for her really natural, radiant look — how do we go about creating that look at home? Miranda is super healthy and it shows through to her skin. Diet, limit alcohol and no smoking really helps, plus lots of water. She uses her Kora range of skincare, exfoliating regularly and a great moisturiser is key.

How can we get beautiful dewy skin without looking oily? It depends on your skin type. If you've got dry skin you can use a moisturising or luminising liquid foundation. If you're oily you may need an oil-free foundation and then use a cream highlighter on the high points of your face.

What are some Aussie brands that you love to use? Jurlique is a favourite. I love their Lavender Silk Finishing Powder and Lavender Hydrating Mist and they also do a great hand cream. Pure by Phytocare paw paw ointment is wonderful for lips or any dry patches on the face or body.

What’s the most common makeup mistake women can make? Picking the wrong shade of foundation and not blending it. Also foundation that's too powdery on young girls, it make the skin look "dead".

What do you think about primer? I use it occasionally. If someone need extra shine control I use Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm is great for a pick me up on tired/dull skin

How you do to ensure celebrities’ makeup looks good up close? I discovered the Shu Uemura Face Architect Smoothing Fluid Foundation is lovely and sheer but brilliant for shine control on TV. Sheer powder is a must as you can see every detail and you don't want a heavy-powdered appearance. Also blending is a must. Plus, don't over gloss lips as it can look like dribble. Not nice!!
