I sat down with makeup guru, Mickey Contractor, to talk about his love for MAC, working with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and so much more. As a beauty obsessed blogger, who used to only dream of meeting India’s most famous makeup artist, this was a dream come true. Like Mickey says, it’s great when you can turn your hobby into a job! So, all my makeup addicts in the house, this is one interview you’re not going to want to miss. Fill yourself in on the latest trends, makeup essentials, and tips to brighten up a dull day, all in this one podcast.

1) What do you love most about being a makeup artist?

The fact that I can bring a smile to somebody’s face everyday of my life and makeup used to be a hobby with me, which has become my profession and I couldn’t ask for better.

2) A trend that will never go out of style.

I think subtle highlighting and contouring will never go out of trend.

3) What are 5 makeup essentials every woman should have?

Studio Fix powder that suits your skin tone, an amazing mascara, a kohl pencil, and an eyelash curler, and maybe a nice blush.

4) The last celebrity that you worked with?

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for her test look in Jazbaa.

5) One makeup trick that can brighten up a dull day?

Once again, an eyelash curler. As soon as you curl lashes, something awakens within you.

6) A summary of Spring/Summer 2015 MAC Trends.

Skin is extremely important this season and it has been on the glossy side. It’s not about matte. Mascara is also playing a very big part, even if it’s clumpy it’s making a statement. Contour might be out, but highlighting is in. Lip colors are more muted and monochromatic. I think it’s all about freedom of expression.
