Interview: Dolce & Gabbana National Makeup Artist – Christian McCulloch

1. Hey Pretty Thing: What three beauty trends are you’re loving this spring?
Christian McCulloch: I am loving the bold bright matte lip, with an otherwise neutral, creamy luminescent, glowing face. So fresh. Basically it’s about fuchsia, crimson, cherry, and bold red hues in a matte finish. I am also loving glowing dewy skin, perfected with primer, a touch of concealer, and illuminator. Finally, brows. I think the thicker, defined, arched brow is the way to go. It frames the face and makes all the color looks feel modern.

2. HPT: What is your favorite product from the Dolce & Gabbana spring line and how do you like to use it?
CM: I really love the Classic Cream Lipstick in Bouganville. It is the perfect pop of color that really suits everybody, i.e. all ethnicities. For summer I like to layer over with the Intense Color Gloss in Bouganville if you’re going for my high impact. Delicious lips!

3. HPT: Which products would you use for an everyday look? How would you transition the look for the evening? 
CM: For everyday, the Smooth Eye Color Quad in Tender is my go to; it’s such a gorgeous, flattering and modern palette. I would keep the shadows as a base for evening but amp up the eyes with the Khol Eye Pencil in True Black and lots of mascara. If I feel like going even stronger, I layer over with the Glam Intense Liquid Liner in Intense Black, for major feline eyes.
