New York-based makeup guru and product junkie Daniel Martin dishes on his must-have products, holiday wish list and the magazines he curls up with when no one’s watching.
For party season, my signature makeup technique is… A sexy smudgy dark eye so you can drink and not worry about messing up your lipstick.
My can’t-live-without products for winter…
1. Honest Beauty Magic Balm
2. Tatcha Indigo Soothing Rice Enzyme Powder
3. M-61 SuperSoothe E Microdermabrasion Scrub
4. Biologique Recherche Creme Verte Espoir
My all-time favorite beauty hack… Using mascara as a liquid liner with a fine liner brush.
When it comes to off-radar beauty, I’m loving… Clio Kill Cover Sheer Pearlfection Wear Sheer Blender Luminizers
A perfect day for me… is sitting on the porch at my beach house in Connecticut with a pile of magazines! I’m a nerd when it comes to magazines. I love WIRED, Travel and Leisure, Fast Company and The Economist. Since I work in fashion, I don’t look at fashion mags much.
Glam up your look in minutes with this trick… line the waterlines of your eyes for an instant pop of drama.
The one must-have tool every makeup junkie needs… a Loew-Cornell #270 Maxine Mop brush from the art store. This soft goat hair brush is perfect to diffuse concealer, blend out creme eyeshadows and lay down a deep dark mouth on full lips without harsh lines.
