What’s inside Sir John’s makeup kit?
Did you swoon over Beyoncé’s Coachella makeup and immediately begin to track down all the eye glitter in a 50-mile radius? Or maybe Joan Smalls’s Cleopatra-inspired look at the Met Gala inspired you to take your liner to the next level.
The man behind those stunning looks—and countless others that have lit up your Instagram feed—is none other than one of the world’s most sought-after makeup artists, Sir John. As anyone who’s seen him on American Beauty Star knows, he’s as thoughtful as he is talented. Case in point: He was kind enough to give us a peek inside his makeup kit…and into his beauty philosophy, too. Thank you, Sir—the pleasure is truly ours.
