Makeup Musts

Terrell Mullin

As a young gentleman Terrell Mullin was given the responsibility of getting his four cousins and niece ready for school every morning, This duty, and a successful hairdresser for an aunt, gave Terrell a appreciation and interest in beauty very early on. Now, he’s glammed Hollywood divas like Kerry Washington, Amber Riley and Jill Scott—just to name a few.



“Actress Angela Bassett is really big on flawless skin. I first primed with a oil-free primer by NARS. Then, I used Koh Gen Do’s Maifanshi Moisture Foundation in 302 and 301 and then applied Kevyn Aucoin’s Sensual Skin Enhancer. For Angela’s sultry eye look I used the Tom Ford Color Quad in Cognac Sable and created a very smoky lid, then lined her eyes with the Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline by MAC and lastly coated her lashes with mascara. To add a youthful splash of color I popped on some of Iman’s Sheer Finish Bronzing Powder in After Glow and NARS’ Orgasm blush on her cheeks and finished with a glossy nude.”


“For, Eva Marcille I wanted to make her look chic and natural, using only Kiss New York Professional products. I started by priming her skin with the Smoothing Pro Touch Face Primer and Pro Touch Make Up Setting Spray to avoid a makeup meltdown. I then used the Pro Touch Cushion Foundation in Beige Glow and continued her face using the Medium Contour Kit. Next, I defined and highlighted her brows. I worked her eyes with a pink nude shade. I used a voluminous then lined her lids. For glow, I used the Halo Strobing Palette in Medium. Lastly, for lips, I used the West Village Ultra-Matte Lip Crayon, followed up by Luxe Creamy Lip Gloss in Bailey Vanilla.”



MAKEUP MUST-HAVE: Laura Mercier Invisible Pressed Setting Powder “It’s a powder that’s ‘invisible,’ it doesn’t have any color. So I can use it on anyone from the lightest shade to the darkest shade and it just takes away unwanted shine.”
