Our interview with Tobi Henney, an amazing makeup artist currently based in New York, who told us everything about the look she did for Bambi Northwood Blyth on the occasion of the American Australian Arts Awards. Known for her glowy, luminous skin and for the vibrant use of colors to enhance the gaze, Tobi is also the go-to celebrity makeup artist for Ashley Graham, Karlie Kloss, Barbara Palvin and Poppy Delevingne, among the others!

This is How I Roll
Begin by massaging Augustinus Bader The Cream into the skin for hydration. Next, buff some Becca Backlight Priming Filter into the face starting from the center and working outwards. Hydrate under the eyes by applying La Mer The Eye Concentrate and then tap some Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal onto the high points of the face for glow. Use a cotton tip and apply the Lip Delicious to the lips so they stay hydrated for lipstick application later on.
Once I have prepped the skin, I start with the eyes. In particular the brows: I use an angled brush to create small brush-stroke hairs into the brows where they need filling. Bambi mainly requires these on the arch and at the end of the brow. Next, set the brow hairs in place by using the Benefit Brow Gel on clear.
I then apply the Mac Cosmetics Indianwood Paint Pot on the eyelid as the base. Next, I buff the matte peach shade from the Viseart Tryst Palette using a fluffy brush. Make sure the edges are blended seamlessly. Tap the metallic peach shade from the palette on the lid and then run the matte peach shade under the lower lash line, so the tones wrap around the entire eye. Curl the lashes and apply multiple coats of Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara.
Once the eyes are complete, apply Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, starting from the center of the face. Add a touch of Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer under the eyes and on any blemishes that require covering. Set the center of the skin in place with the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Powder.
Create dimension to the face by applying Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate to the cheekbones, temples, and jawline, and then tap the highlight shade to create further glow. Rosey cheeks are one of the main parts of this look, so I add a tap of Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Blush to the apples of the cheeks.
Finish by applying Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Vicious.
Rosey cheeks are one of the main parts of this look…
Never again would I overpluck my eyebrows…
This happened when I was probably fifteen or so. Big brows are here to stay!
