Mercedes took the time to speak with us about the products she’s excited about right now, how she makes time for self-care, and what’s in her bag.
Welcome Mercedes! Is there one beauty product that you truly can’t live without?
That’s a tough one. I would go with Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. It’s just a signature look for me to have eyeliner all the time.
If you tipped out your bag, what would we find?
Lipstick, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, mirror, matting powder, chewing gum and a bunch of hair ties.
Which products are you excited about right now?
I have been a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury for many years now. They have a new Charlotte Tilbury
The Beautyverse Palette – Xmas 2023 palette which is a must have for the Holidays.
Do you have different color palettes for day and night shoots?
Yes absolutely. I find makeup artists using a lot of NARS and Mac palettes on me. Maybe those well with my shots and my skin tone. I am very basic when it comes to makeup. If I like a product, I will be buying that for years.
What make-up era do you love the most?
I love the 2000s look. Thin brows, colorful eyeshadows and smokey eye. They are always such a unique look.
Do you take makeup breaks?
Absolutely, every 3-4 days I have a no makeup day when I just do face stretches and massages plus facemasks. I feel like my skin needs a break every once in a while!
Who is your beauty icon?
As makeup artists, I love Meredith Duxbury.
Is there a skincare rule / routine that you live by?
I do the 4-step cleansing and I use ZO’s products. The face cleanser, tonic, moisturizer and eye cream. They do wonders.
What is the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
That I should not just wash my face with a soap bar.
