MARY GREENWELL,-THE GODMOTHER OF MAKEUP
I love, love, love watching beauty videos! Be it a tutorial, haul or beauty sneaking – I gobble it all up! Mary Greenwell is one of those women who’s fascinating to watch. She’s been in the industry for decades, has taught Lisa Eldridge and Charlotte Tilbury (whom I admire) and is probably most known for doing the late Princess Diana’s makeup.
It’s always interesting watching how other makeup artists work and Mary is no exception. Her approach to makeup is so ‘slap-dash’. She likes to use her hands, doesn’t use a lip brush and hate false lashes e.g. In the first video she’s being interviewed by Sali Hughes about her pro kit and talking about which products she loves. The second video is a tutorial on how to get the perfect base – not just for the weekend, but also for a night out, I would say.
