With A-list clients including Emma Thompson, Poppy Delevingne and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tania Grier is one of the industry’s most in-demand make-up artists. So, who better to show us what’s in her pro kit? From the tools that promise a flawless finish every time to the tips and tricks everyone should know, these are the products and techniques she relies on.
“Make-up artists always need some tricks up their sleeves when faced with puffy eyes or irritated skin. The Marie Reynolds Eye Balls are very effective at de-puffing – plus, they’re so lightweight. If I have access to a fridge on set, I will use the 001Skincare Cryo Press to tighten pores and wake up the skin – I also love the brand’s Micro Sculptor which is great for a quick lymphatic massage to get the blood flowing. Like many, I also swear by the Shiseido Eyelash Curler for a quick curl and lift pre-mascara, and the Tweezerman Every Lash Curler for when I want to get right into the corner lashes. I really rate the Eyelure Blend & Care False Lash Blender. It works to bind false lashes with mascara, so you get that extra protection on an evening out. Finally, the Kryolan Silcopad is a great time-saver. It protects the face from product fallout when you do your eye make-up.”
