Christy Coleman is an expert makeup artist and friend to Miranda. The pair has worked on many exciting projects together, from Victoria’s Secret Runway parades to a recent Louis Vuitton shoot. Yet it’s Miranda’s signature glow, rosy cheeks, and freshly-kissed-lips look that she’s asked to recreate each time.
Christy has kindly detailed our founder’s “iconic look,” for you to impress a hot date this Valentine’s Day!
Miranda’s classic look is workable both on-set and for every day. Whether it’s any of the fashion houses, Miranda is booked for her look. I try and keep her skin very dewy, and her makeup pretty straightforward. Miranda has an iconic look so it is important not to “stray” away from what’s she’s known for: radiant skin, rosy cheeks and matching lips, and a defined brow.
If the job is more of an editorial with a “certain look” we are both always happy to play; she is easily transformable which makes her one of my favorite models to work with.
On Miranda, I like to accentuate and focus on the following:
I prep Miranda with a mist, massage, and oil routine—the Noni Glow Face Oil is great for this. Prepping is a necessity as it awakens the skin and decreases any puffiness, especially when she travels a lot. This routine works on all of us girls and guys!
I first start with a light foundation and blend, before applying her concealer (only where you need it) for a dewy, fresh look. Try Tint Skin in Linen by Beautycounter.
She has lovely rosy cheeks! I love to use a little cream blush, pressing the blush on the apple of the cheeks to accentuate her healthy glow.
I try and use a nice bronzy shade in the crease and the outer edge and mascara to finish the look off.
She has a great brow arch, so I only need to add a little pencil to enhance and define.
I always try and give Miranda a freshly-kissed look—I can recommend the Sheer Lipstick in Rose by Beautycounter.
