Tune Darling: Ashley Gomila Beauty Tips For Celebrating Like A Star
Girls we all could use some tips when getting ready to celebrate with friends we sat down with makeup expert Ashley Gomila who works with the likes of FERGIE , KELLY OSBOURNE , and more for the lowdown on beauty and a great cocktail.
What are your 6 tips for the best makeup before a night out to celebrate
1.) Make sure your face is completely clean & moisturized before applying makeup.
2.) Clean your brushes after each use, there’s many easy ways to clean them. I prefer Cinema Secrets brand.
3.) Invest in a good primer, your makeup will stay in place and last all day and into the night.
4.) Smokey eyeshadow doesn’t have to just be done with black, try using a winter friendly pop of color like Navy or Aubergine.
5.) Stop by LUSH or Fresh and grab a sugar lip scrub. I love this product for keeping my own and my clients lips soft and plump.
6.) I always prefer individual lashes over strip lashes. However, if you’re going to splurge and wear false lashes, get a good pair from Faux Lash (www.fauxlash.com) or skip lashes all together and triple up on mascara. Nothing ruins a makeup look more than cheap strip lashes.
Which lipstick color ‘s help you sparkle
I’m currently obsessed with Diors lip plumper, it’s clear with a small amount of pink. It really helps any lipstick pop – matte or shimmer. As for lipstick colors, I can’t stop using China Girl by NARS. It’s the perfect shade of red, super chic and can be worn year round.
How do you celebrate being a makeup artist to the stars
Being a celebrity makeup artist I have the luxury of attending the hottest parties & events. I personally prefer to celebrate in a low key environment either around a rooftop pool amongst friends or grabbing dinner and Absolut Tune cocktails at Villa Blanca in West Hollywood.
What musician do you love working with right now
I’ve been so lucky to work with so many talented men and women in the industry! It’s so hard to pick just one but I’d have to pick Rye Rye or my newest client BANKS. Both women are so different yet similarly so strong. They both go out and kill the stage like it’s nothing no matter how big the venue or audience head count. Both girls are such an inspiration to me.
What Absolut Tune cocktail would you be
Okay, anyone who knows me knows I love a good cocktail. Absolut Tune in a white grape juice martini, so good. That would be my drink the The Lip Smacker
Best eye shadow colors for diffrent skintypes
I really love the new light floral tones available in Urban Decays Naked 3 palette, the variety of shades make it good for all complexions & skin tones.
Favorite makeup brands
I mostly use NARS in my kit, I love the richness of the pigments and products overall. I also love using high end independent brands like Cattiva & Just Jill cosmetics. I also cannot work a day without my Chella brow pencils and Faux Lash eyelashes.
What should every girl have in their makeup vanity
Tweezerman brand tweezers!!!! If you can only have a few items splurge and get a high end mascara, full coverage powder or light/tinted/bbcreme foundation & killer red lipstick. I would recommend Cattiva Divino lash mascara, Just Jill foundation stick or mineral powder foundation (great for sensitive skin), & NARS chubby lip pencil in China Girl for the perfect matte red lip!
