Girls from Miss Face without makeup and list of products, that I applied

The most frequented question, that I am being asked is: “What product do you use for…?” So I decided to write down a full list of products, that I haved applied on the girls from Miss Face Czech Republic.

I have done the makeup for semifinalists and finalists and with their approval, I took their photo without and with my makeup. The contestants were supposed to have an identical makeup: Smokey eyes, creamy lips and contouring of the face. So with just a few exceptions I was applying the same products, only different shades.



We started later in the afternoon, so all the girls have done their usual morning routine and used a daily moisturizer. I cleaned their face with micellar water and sprayed it with Fix+ from MAC. Unless the skin is dry or dehydrated, I do not use moisturizer or serum, I start directly with makeup base. For oily skin I like YSL Matt Touche, for dry skin, or dry parts I use Sisley Radiant Immediate Lift.



I start my contouring with choosing two shades of liquid foundation, right now I am using Skin foundation from Bobbi Brown. I apply dark shade on contours, light one on parts, where I want the highlight. I will blend both shades and then add the brightening concealer Helena Rubinstein Magic Concealer, which I apply under the eyes as well. It has a creamy texture and does not sink immediately into the skin, so I can blend it properly.

I will enhance my contouring again with two shades of powder: light shade for highlighting, dark one for contouring. I really love Chanel powders, Vitalumière or Natural Finish Loose Powder.



At last I enhanced my contouring and highlighting with matt and shiny shades from Anastasia Beverly Hills Contouring Book. On cheeks I applied just a little peachy Blush from Chanel.



If I need to create the eyebrow in places, where it does not grow I always use some sticky product first. I like pencils Le Crayon Poudre from Lancôme or sticky shade from Brow Zings palette from Benefit. Than I apply eyebrow powders from Anastasia Beverly Hills. For shaping the eyebrow hair I use small mascaras Gimme Brow from Benefit.


Eyes and Lips

To prevent the eyeshadow from creasing I always apply some eyeshadow base. I use MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot all over the eyelid. If I want to enhance the eyes more I apply dark and light Eyeliner Gel from Makeup Atelier Paris and with blend them together. I am using combination of eyeshadows from MAC, Make Up For Ever and Too Faced. From mascaras I like Hypnôse from Lancôme. For lips I used lip pencil in colour of the lips, I draw the shape of the lips and shade them.

From lipsticks I love YSL Rouge Volupté, cheaper version of it is a creamy lipstick from Inglot, which I like to use for photoshoots.


I took all the photos with my mobile phone, sometimes it was a bit cloudy, so the makeup was a little more “radiant” in reality.

I am preparing an article, where I want to describe my signature makeup, what products are my favourite and why I use them 🙂 Please write down in the comments what would you like to know and I will focus my article on it.


Have a nice day,


The most favourite liquid foundations of czech makeup artists

The most favourite liquid foundations of czech makeup artists

The last bottle of your liquid foundation is finnished and you just want to try something different. I asked my friends, czech makeup artist what is their favourite foundation and why. I am very grateful for their tips and I hope it will help you to choose just the right foundation for you.


“The best foundation, that is avaliable in Czech republic is Make Up For Ever Face&Body. It has a light texture, does not clog pores, or enhance fine lines, has a good coverage and flawless finish. This makeup is waterproof, yet suitable even for dry skin and does not make the skin to look dehydrated. You can buy it in Sephora in a large variety of shades. Unfortunately Make Up For ever is changing the formula and the new one is allegedly not that good as the old one. Bourjois Healthy Mix SERUM is a good high street dupe, it is very similar to Face&Body, but it is quite hard to get in Czech republic.”

“I really love Born this way from Too Faced, because as the only makeup it contains a coconut water, which hydrates your skin all day. It also has a hyaluronic acid, which we all love and an extract from mountain rose, which works for the elasticity of the face. It does not contain oil, so it is suitable for oily skin. It has a brightening effect, medium to full coverage.”

Silvia Mikusova, Too Faced specialist


“I always have Double Wear Maximum Cover from Estée Lauder in my makeup kit. It has a full coverage, but with light aplication it can look pretty natural and it lasts very long. It is not a foundation for everyday use, its formula is quite heavy for skin. I apply it on women with skin disorders and very oily skin. My friend has a rosacea and this is the only makeup, that can cover it and from one meter her skin looks perfectly normal.”

“My favourite is definitely Luminous silk foundation from Giorgio Armani. It has an amazing coverage and makes your skin look radiant and natural. From all the Armani foundations I favour this one, because even if I am tired and my skin looks dull, thanks to Luminous my face will always look juicy and makeup will stay all day long.”

Marketa Parizkova, Giorgio Armani Face designer


Nejlepsi-makeupy2“My favourite is definitely Rouge Bunny Rouge Skin Soul Drops. I can create any coverage that I need. If I want a natural makeup, I just add one drop to daily moisturizer. For full coverage I will add 2-4 drops to daily moisturizer. As a makeup artist I highly appreciate that the packaging is really small and does not take much place in my makeup kit.”

Lucie Uxova, freelancer


“For me personally is MAC Face and Body the best makeup. It is very easy to work with, it has a light texture, is hydrating and does not feel heavy on the skin. Face and Body has light to medium coverage, but in case of skin problems it is very easy to layer up to full coverage. As a bonus is this makeup suitable for body as well.”

Denisa Grossmannova, MAC specialist


“I love Armani Designer Lift. Works wonders with dehydrated and flaky skin. It has a smoothing, natural and youthful effect on the face. I would not recommend it for oily skin and face with a T-zone. For this I would recommend Armani Lasting silk, which fits to almost all skin types and has a matt finish.”

Martina Bartoskova, freelancer


Lancôme Teint Miracle is my number one foundation, especially in summer and wedding season. It has a medium to full coverage, but does not look heavily on the skin. I love to apply it on the brides, their skin looks flawless with it, they will look beautiful on the photos and the husband will appreciate the natural look of the skin. Thanks to technology Aura – Inside TM it will brighten the face. Teint Miracle will also last 18 hours and hydrate the whole time.”

Jana Darmovzalova, Lancôme National makeup artist


And what is my personal favourite foundation?

For more than a year I really like Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. It has a light to medium coverage, it is very buildable on the skin for full coverage when needed. The shade no 0. Porcelain is a good choice for faired skinned complexion, darker shades are good for the ladies, who like sunbathing. It lasts really long on the face and looks natural. I have never seen an allergic reaction to this makeup and that is probably the most important thing to me.
