Mariah Carey’s Makeup Artist Reveals Why You’ll Never See


As Mariah Carey’s makeup artist, there’s no one we trust more with all of our holiday glam questions than Kristofer Buckle. Carey is practically the queen of Christmas, making Buckle the queen of Christmas’ makeup artist. This year, we may be spending the holidays with different people or in a different location than usual but one thing can stay the same: we can still go all out with our beauty look.

To help you pull off your best, most festive holiday beat yet (even if it’s just for Zoom), Buckle shared his tips for recreating Carey’s famous soft glam makeup on yourself.

It’s even more important than ever to prep and set your makeup due to face masks. Not only will this give you a smooth application, but it will also keep your beat looking flawless for hours on end. One of his favorite skin-care products to use on his clients to prep before makeup is the Emepelle Serum ($175).
