Each year ELLE honours the makeup artists, hair stylists and skincare saviours who make the life of women around the world a whole lot easier. The elite of the elite, the Top Gun of the hair and makeup world, are awarded a Genius Award and this year, Napoleon Perdis finds himself amongst the top tier.
Napoleon is the hero of the high-definition era and stars turn to him when the camera piles on the bulk and cranks up those years. His trick? "Dusting nude blush in the hollow of the cheek, to ‘create an immediate youthful, slimming effect,'" the makeup maestro tells ELLE.
His other secret weapon? Hydrating primer, of course. Try Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer ($49.50). LOVE.
