Max Factor: Cate Blanchett & # 39; s makeup artist Liz Kelsh shares her holy grail mascara

The famous makeup artist Liz Kelsh has several different & # 39; bags & # 39; – such as the & # 39; Cate & # 39; and the & # 39; Nicole & # 39; – to accommodate all products that she uses with her star clients.

And although those bags are reserved for Australian actresses Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman, the Irish-born beauty salon also works with Ruby Rose, Jennifer Hawkins and Karlie Kloss.

The Max Factor Australia makeup artist is convinced that there is no & # 39; one-size-fits-all & # 39; approach to a product and that the size of a foundation, eyeliner or bronzer depends on a person's skin texture, complexion and face shape. That's why she has so many bags.

& # 39; You cannot expect a product to look great on a woman with a Greek skin color and also translate on a woman of Indian descent. It is best to & # 39; holy grail & # 39; to take items with a pinch of salt and try it first, & she told FEMAIL.

& # 39; The Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara ($ 25.95) is without a doubt the best on the market. I would never use anything else, & she said.

& # 39; I also love Charlotte Tilbury and Tom Ford products across the board.
