The secret to Nicole Scherzinger’s A-list glow? Vita Liberata of course! We chatted to Emma Osborne, celebrity makeup artist to Nicole, for an inside look into her lifestyle as a top MUA and pro tips on how to get Nicole’s gorgeous glow!
Tell us about yourself and what you do!
I’m a freelance make-up artist! My job ranges from working with celebrity clients for red carpet events to music videos and high fashion editorials to commercial advertising. I love all aspects of the industry and travelling is one passion which enables me to fulfil this as I get to work in so many different places..
Why did you choose being an MUA as a career?
My mum was always having fun with make up so it was something I use to play with too – I loved the colours! As I got older I realised there was so much more to make-up industry that nobody knows about until you get into it. I’ve always loved it, because it’s so fun!
Describe your typical day…
No day is ever the same! If I’m working on a music video my day will sometimes start at 5am and won’t finish until midnight! At the moment, my life is based around X Factor, which is amazing! I’m working most weekends which makes it tricky to make plans outside of work but working with the likes of Nicole Scherzinger makes it worth it!
What’s the best thing about what you do?
Travelling all over the world and meeting new people… one day I’m on a private jet – the next I could be in a basement for 12 hours, but some days I can start work at 4am, and be home by 9am!
Who are some of your celebrity clients?
I’ve worked with lots of A-listers including Nicole Scherzinger, Rita Ora and Emma Watson – the list goes on!
What’s the secret to glowing skin?
Always start with an amazing skin base, looking after your skin is key! I love to use the Vita Liberata Fabulous Illuminate Wash Off Body Bronzer, it gives the most amazing skin-finish on my clients and they always look amazing after application!
Who is your ultimate beauty icon?
There are so many to choose from! I love 50s icons like Audrey Hepburn, Rita Hayworth and Marylin Monroe.
How can we get Nicole’s glowing skin finish at home?
Always prep with a good moisturiser, then add instant colour with the Vita Liberata products! Vita Liberata Fabulous Illuminate Wash Off Body Bronzer gives a great glow to the skin. Add extra glow and coverage with Body Blur HD Skin Finish.
