Sarah Lucero tells all in an exclusive interview with RAGTRADE:

Has your makeup look changed at all since you started working with Stila Cosmetics?

Since working with Stila, I’ve taken a more natural approach to my makeup.  I love to play up my eyes with multiple shades of eye liner.  My favorite is Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Midnight.

What lip color are you wearing right now. What are your tips on how to wear color? 

I’m wearing Color Balm Lipstick in Isabelle today.  I love Stila’s Color Balm Lipstick formula now because it feels like a lip balm but offers a lot of color so it’s perfect for the winter months when you need a little extra hydration.  I often reach for matte finishes when going for a power pout or a bold color.  That type of finish makes it look more modern.  Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso is the hottest red shade for everyone.

What’s your number one beauty tip? 

Pay attention to your eyebrows!  Brush them up and fill in where you need to – good brows make your entire makeup look better.

What celebrity that you have worked with gets it right when it comes to beauty? 

I work with Victoria Beckham and she is such a natural beauty.  I am always inspired when I do her makeup.

What’s your must-have Stila product? ​

Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color!  I always use 2 shades on everyone – its a makeup-bag game-changer for sure.
