Hello, I am Zoe Renee, a makeup artist, fashion stylist & the Creative Director of UnZIP Magazine. I wear many fashionable hats in life as well as in business.
I have very dry skin, and the winters in New York make my skin feel like a desert. I wash my face twice a day with Glam Glow Thirsty Mud Cleanser (Morning and Night) with a Foreo. In the morning I moisturize with Dr. Jart Ceramidin, and in the evening I moisturize with Glam Glow Thirsty Mud. Moisturizing daily is the key to my soft, supple skin.
My makeup routine changes daily, based on what inspires my look for the day. I rarely wear the same look twice. However I do get attached to certain makeup products that I use on a daily basis.
I have been wearing False Eyelashes for 14 years. The brand and style of eyelashes have changed over the years, a few of my favorite brands are Cherry Blossom, MAC and Kiss. I have always and will always use Duo Eyelash glue to apply my lashes. It blends well with the lashes and keeps them on for my long 14-16 hour work days. Then at night I can easily remove them and reuse them.
Cover FX Cream Foundation is my favorite foundation to date. I wear it daily and use it on a number of my clients. I love the texture, the coverage, and how it feels on my skin. I have a really round face and contour daily to pop out those cheekbones. Some of my favorite contour beauty products are the Urban Decay’s Naked Flush Palette (bronzer, luminiferous and blush all in one). I recently bought the Lancome Duo Contour stick and use it daily to create the perfect contour.
Benefit They’re Real Liner has been a staple in my makeup bag since the day it released, I wear it everyday (the perfect gel liner in a pen form).
Anastasia Dipbrow creates the perfect brows (I should know, I don’t have any). I mix Chocolate and Ebony daily to create my perfect bold brow. A little bit goes a very long way (remember that when applying, not for the faint at heart).
I have been OBSESSED with the Urban Decay Electric Palette since I had white blonde hair and found out the eyeshadow worked better than hair chalk (to create not only a new makeup look everyday, but also a new hair color). This palette is still one of my go to eyeshadow palettes when I am feeling bright and cheery and want that to show in my makeup.
Last but not least wine color lips are the beauty trend for Fall and Winter this season and I have fallen under their spell. I am in love with the cult favorites Kat Von D Vampira and Obsessive Compulsive Black Metal Dahlia Lip Tar. They go hand in hand and look amazing when you layer them.
These are just a few of my Favorite Makeup Things. Follow me on Instagram for more inspiration!
