Get insider info from our hair and makeup artists on the set of HGTV’s Backyard Builds and learn top tips for looking flawless on screen!
We asked The Beauty Team artists, Justine and Natasha, a few questions about their experience working on the set of Backyard Builds:
- You used FACE Atelier products on Sarah and Brian. Which were your favourites?
J: My favourite FACE Atelier products had to be the FACE Atelier Ultra Pressed Powder for Brian and FACE Atelier Jolie Lipstick for Sarah—she loves a pop of colour!
N: Other than FACE Atelier, Pro Long Wear Concealer from MAC was great for under their eyes or on any problem spots.
- How did you control shine on long shoot days?
J: The trick to controlling shine was to prime with FACE Atelier Ultra Matte, use the FACE Atelier Ultra Pressed Powder then follow with one more layer of FACE Atelier Ultra Matte.
N: Blotting papers by Elf and Make up Forever HD loose powder were key for controlling shine. On long days we would even clean the face and start fresh!
3. What were your set bag essentials?
J: My set bag essentials were the FACE Atelier Ultra pressed powder, FACE Atelier Jolie Lipstick, and two bottles of water with straws to keep the talent hydrated!
N: For me, Make up Forever HD translucent powder, lip balm, and make up setting spray!
- What was your favourite look on Sarah?
J: Sarah always looked her best with a bit of Colour Runway on the cheeks and FACE Atelier lipstick in Jolie on the lips!
N: For Sarah, less is more! Blush and a coral lip!
- What is a typical day as a makeup artist on set of Backyard Builds?
J: No two days were the same on Backyard Builds! I was always ready to climb a tree house ladder for touch ups.
N: A typical day on an outdoor set meant always being ready behind the scenes to fix flyaway hairs!
- What is your best tip for looking amazing on camera?
J: The best tip to looking good on camera is staying hydrated.
N: Blending your blush and contour is important but don’t be afraid to go a little heavier as the camera may not pick up the pigment!
Be sure to tune in for the premiere of Backyard Builds on April 6th at 10 p.m. and catch the work of The Beauty Team on the big screen!
