Tracy Anderson – Madonna’s and Gwyneth’s personal trainer does good Skin

So it’s the first week of Jan and things in my world of makeup are already very busy. I’ve had a few meetings for this upcoming Feb’s London Fashion Week- so watch this space for future makeup tips hot off the catwalks. I’ve also spent this week with one of my most lovely clients- the pint sized powerhouse- Tracy Anderson. You may have heard the buzz about her- she is Madonnas and Gwyneth Paltrows personal trainer and she has been in London promoting her amazing new fitness DVD

I first met Tracy back in Sept, I was doing her makeup for a photoshoot with her and Gwyneth Paltrow for US magazine- Gotham. Tracy spends a lot of time traveling which can sometimes take a toll her complexion- so I paid extra attention to her skin to make sure it was looking its best for the shoot.. she was super happy with the results; so much so that she requested me back for more work ( the ultimate compliment to any makeup artist!)
To achieve this flawless photographic look I applied- Benefits Some Kind of Gorgeous first on the skin after her moisturiser- this is a tinted moisturiser mixed with thier trademark DR Feelgood primer- a 2 in one, I find it gives a gental even tone to the skin and makes the skin feel silky smooth- Next using a foundation brush and painting the skin in an up and down movement, I applied MAC Studio tech- a cream to powder foundation, for a look that was flawless. To finish, I dusted a touch of translucent powder. What I love about Tracy is that she turned me onto one of her favourite products- she uses Fresh- compact powder, which I hadnt tried before. IT has a touch of sheen and isnt cakey or heavy- and I am always on the look out for whats new and good, a definate new staple to my makeup kit.

If you want to re-create Tracy’s look, make sure you include these items – nude lip pencil, peachy sheer lip gloss, bronzer, a touch of shimmer highligher and a few individaul lashes to the outter corner of the eye- think a natural blonde bomshell, a more toned down, subtle Pamila Anderson or Bridget Bardo.

And if any of you are interested in how to get that hot lean body check out www.tracyandersonmethod.com (watch this space as I plan on doing the DVD myself and will let you all know how it goes!)

    Great makeup tips. I will definitely try to recreate the look myself. I love the bronzer and peach gloss.
