Here are some of her secrets to not only getting the models she works with every day to look even more beautiful, but also her very own favorite beauty products! - RLB
RLB: What are your personal skin care favorites?
RH: My personal regime all time favorite thing is Na-PCA spray by Twinlab. I have used this product for years. Also, Weleda Iris moisture Cream. I also love Shu uemera Deepsea replenishing cream.
RLB: What skin care products do you use to prep models?
RH: First I prep with Shu Uemera Deepsea replenishing lotion. I tend to use oil-free moisturizer. Usually Neutrogena Oil-free sensitive Skin. Shiseido Factor 55 if we are going to be out in the sun.
RLB: What are your top three foundations and why?
RH: MAC and Bobbi Brown both have great stick foundations they come in a great range of colors and cover and travel well. L'Oreal infallible is also really great if you need something long lasting.
RLB: What is the best new mascara you've tried in the last 6 months?
RH: I am such a Lancome Defencils fanatic that I almost never try new mascara. I can control it and make it do what I want. I think that it would be great if they could make one that gradually darkened lashes. Like Grecian formula but for lashes.
RLB: What products did you use on Chanel Iman for the Bazaar Dubai Magazine Cover? (Pictured, left.)
RH: I really just went for the eyes. I used a pencil like MAC black liner in Ebony, a warm black on the top of the lid.
A couple of coats of mascara and NARS South Beach stick on the lid crease and cheeks just a hint of white frost shadow above the fine black pencil line. Lips natural, with only lip balm.
RLB: What products did you use on the model (in one of my favorite international Elle issues last year), the Elle Germany spread, you did in India? (Pictured, left.)
RH: Thanks much for saying that! You see tons of beauty pics.
I rarely use a lip liner but this was one of those times. lined the lips very lightly with MAC Chestnut. I feathered it all over the lips with a q-tip and blended in a red lipstick. I tend too use 2-3 colors on the mouth when I do red. It creates dimension.
I used individual lashes on the corners of her eyes. A modern natural take on old Hollywood glam. I used a little contour in the cheek hollows and a rosy powder blush on the cheeks. I used a taupe pencil on the brows after meticulous brow shaping.
