3 Questions with Celebrity Makeup Artist Tina Turnbow


Last afternoon we headed backstage at the Erickson Beamon jewelry presentation for New York Fashion Week and got a chance to catch up with celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow. She’s been known to make over A-listers like Amanda Peet, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Corinne Bailey Ray. This time around, Tina utilized all NYX Cosmetics to create a dark 1960′s inspired look to compliment the Erickson Beamon jewelry designs and we were lucky enough to interview her for a few seconds.

3 Questions with Celebrity Makeup Artist Tina Turnbow

FashionIndie: Overall what was your favorite product that you used today?

Tina: I’m loving this NYX The Curve liquid eyeliner. It’s very specific and you can really get in there and make a really fine line. I haven’t found anything shaped like this and it really makes a difference.

The finished look for Erickson Beamon Spring/Summer 2013

FashionIndie: What do you see as being big trends in beauty for Spring 2013?

Tina: I think that it’s going to be a lot of no makeup-makeup, but I think there’s going to always be a fresh glow. I think the skin’s going to be dewey and from what it looks like so far, the eyes are going to be the focus for spring. I feel like the skin is going back to basic because fall had a lot of heavy dark lips. Now this spring’s going to be fresher.

FashionIndie: What are you plans for after fashion week? How do you plan on relaxing?

Tina: Actually I have a huge wedding to do up in the Hamptons and that’s going to be my work/vacation. I haven’t gotten away alls umber, so I’m thinking it’s my turn to go the Hamptons.
