Celebrity Makeup Artist, Amy Oresman

Q: You're one of the biggest makeup artists in Hollywood, working with stars like Hayden Panettiere, Vanessa Hudgens, Emma Roberts, and Kate Bosworth. How did you get started? 
A: I come from a family of people who appreciate great art, and I've always been interested in art AND style. I feel so lucky that my work allows me to combine these two passions in an exciting, creative way.

Q: As the Neutrogena Cosmetics Ambassador, what do you feel you have brought to the drugstore brand and how has the position influenced your artistry?
A: I have been a fan of Neutrogena since I was a teen. Becoming the Cosmetics Ambassador for the brand has been such an amazing experience. When it comes down to it, we all want the same thing -- to look and feel beautiful. As a celebrity makeup artist, I specialize in helping women bring out their own natural-born beauty. I love the way Neutrogena helps women make beauty simple, which is exactly what I do for my clients. You can get just about any gorgeous look with five beauty basics. It's all about using the right products.

Q: Which makeup products from the line are your personal faves and why?
A: One of my go-to products from Neutrogena Cosmetics is the Healthy Skin Custom Glow Blush Bronzer in Posie Glow. It provides such beautiful color. I love that you can customize how much of the bronzer/blush you use to get that perfect, natural "flushed" glow. I am also a huge fan of the Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup. It sinks into your skin and gives you a luxurious, dewy complexion. It works just as well as prestige liquid foundations, but for a fraction of the price. Another of my all-time favorites is Healthy Volume Mascara. It's so reasonably priced and outperforms every mascara out there -- even the most expensive department store brands. It provides volume, length, and separation without flaking or drying, and it conditions your lashes at the same time. Healthy Volume Mascara does for your lashes what conditioner does for your hair. I use it all the time on my celebrity clients and they love it as much as I do.

Q: What do you think was the best makeup trend from Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week 2011?
A: Beautiful skin is always trending, whether it's winter, spring, summer, or fall. I don't believe in being a slave to the latest trend; I stick with beauty basics. If you have gorgeous skin you'll always be in style.

Q: If you could give a newbie makeup artist one piece of career advice, what would it be?
A: Aspiring makeup artists need to remind themselves that they're working on a person, not on a blank canvas. It's really important to listen to your clients and to respect their individual styles. I am there for one reason: to make my clients feel and look like their most beautiful selves. I show them how to do what they want -- only better. I don't want to tell them what their style is. Listen to your clients and use your expertise to meet them in the middle.
