Five Essentials from Violet Grey

For self-tapes, selfies, head shots, makeup is a key tool in an actor's (ladies and gents!) tool box.  Violet Grey is a makeup Mecca.  In store, everyone working there is a makeup artist.  Online, the blog posts and video library are impeccable.  Save time and money, get the right products for YOU and short cut the makeup glut.  I promise.  Here's how I navigated Violet Grey.

Start with a fabulous foundation.  Koh Gen Do is great for HD and is used on countless sets.

RMS concealer is key to creating a flawless look.  This concealer melts into the skin and has a coconut oil base.
