Makeup Masterclass: Derek Miller for Estee Lauder

When I heard that Estee Lauder’s Global Makeup Artist, Derek Miller, was sharing his secrets, I was on it like white on rice.

Derek Miller, Estee Lauder Global Makeup Artist, with Fluff and Fripperies

With a fine arts background, Derek joined the Estee Lauder team 12 years ago and trained alongside Tom Pecheux in Paris – so it’s fair to say he has a trick or two up his sleeve.

From backstage favourites to travel essentials, Derek shared his must-have products and also showcased the latest releases from the brand.  We were shown how to contour our cheeks like a pro, and our makeup was expertly touched up before we headed off at the end of the class.
Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Triple Action Foaming Cleanser
 
With his manic schedule (he's off to Hawaii next, via LA!), Derek’s a big fan of multi-taskers and especially loves Estee Lauder’s new triple action cleanser, Perfectly Clean.
This lightweight foam acts a cleanser, toner and makeup remover, and can be used with cotton pads, or water and a muslin cloth. It’s €28 and I plan on trying it out soon.
Estee Lauder Cello Shots
 
He's also a fan of Nutritious Radiant Vitality 2-Step Treatment, a dual product combining a detoxifying clay mask with a nutrient infusing gel. Made with pomegranate extract as well as hyaluronic acid, Derek tipped this one as perfect for travelling so I might pick it up before my next trip.

Makeup wise, I was most excited about playing with the new Cello Shots - translucent cheek stains, lip glosses and lipsticks that are inspired by coloured cellophane. They give a lovely veil of colour and the four pretty cheek stains are particularly pleasing.


I’ll leave you with the look Derek created for me using Estee Lauder’s summer palette, Batik Sun, which I really love –I own this palette and came up with a similar (though less expertly applied) look when I was messing around with it myself.

Makeup masterclasses are regularly held by high-end brands in some of the bigger department stores (this one was in Brown Thomas) so do keep an eye on their websites or sign up to any mailing lists, if you’d like to attend.

Love it! It was a make over by EL make up artist Alan Pan that first got me really in to make up so I always have a fondness for this brand!

I like the colour of the lipstick; a very subtle shade of red.

Oh you lucky thing! Sounds like a fabulous experience and you look fab at the end of it. Mind you, you looked pretty fab at the beginning too so he had a good canvas to work on. X

I saw him in Galway! He was great but unfortunately I didn't get time with him after due to some more (*ahem*) demanding customers....He has the most amazing eyelashes, no?! :)
