Scott Barnes, Celebrity Makeup Artist extraordinaire, is known for painting the faces of Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Beyonce, to name a few. His talents do not stop there. Scott Barnes began his career as a fine arts painter at Parsons School of Art and Design, where he used his finely honed techniques to re-create light, shadow, and texture. Publisher of About Face Makeup with Jlo gracing the cover, he has now created what I think is his best Makeup line yet. I had the opportunity to Interview Scott and ask him about his new Makeup line and what’s to come in 2022.
RVM: Scott, tell me about your new makeup line you designed?
SB: I currently launched various products including MAXXX OUT Mascara,
SNATURAL No. 2 Eyeshadow palette, and the recently released coveted
Holiday Music Box for the winter season. The Holiday Music Box cover art I
sketched myself. The box includes 40 dazzling eyeshadows, creamy bronzers
and contours, shimmery highlighters, and delicate blushes. The looks are
endless with the Holiday Music Box!
RVM: There are so many amazing products in your line. I love your Contour
Palette. Which would be your favorite creation in this Line?
SB: Each product I curated and designed are special, it’s hard for me to choose
a product that stands out as my favorite. If he had to choose 1, I would say
SNATURAL No.1 because of its diversity while creating looks and it’s one of my
constant go-to’s during shoots and makeup glam sessions.
RVM: As the year comes to an end, can you share with me what Makeup Trend you are excited
to say, Bye, Bye to?
SB: Say goodbye to using kitchenware as makeup tools! It’s ridiculous (and unsanitary!) Just use the tools made for the actual purpose!
RVM: What can we expect to see from you in 2022?
SB: I have so many exciting projects and launches coming out in 2022 including
product lines people have been asking for years! I can’t go into too much detail
about what’s coming, but, I will say that I am excited to launch products that cater
to everyone whether you’re just starting out in makeup or have been a beauty
aficionado for years.
