July 3, 2024

“I’m very into seeing the woman as she actually is.” This week we get a masterclass in less-is-more makeup with Emmy-nominated celeb makeup artist Molly R. Stern! For over three decades, Molly has aced the art of enhancing the natural beauty of her power women clientele (everyone from Reese Witherspoon to Maya Rudolph, Julia Roberts and more.) Listen in as Molly shares her best tips on colour theory, expert blending and more for minimal makeup that delivers maximum effect.

Tune in to learn about:

  • Why skin prep is a big deal – and the one tool Molly’s obsessed with to bring a natural glow to skin
  • Why her signature “flushed” look begs the question: “Did that person just come out of a closet making out with someone?” 
  • The makeup artist’s favourite hack for “lash detailing” mascara to achieve fluffy lashes
  • Her “blush-a-holic” tri-colour blush application technique
  • The one luxury blush that Carlene and Molly are both swooning over
