On the Go: Tarte x Styled by Hrush Palette

We haven’t made our affections for makeup artist Hrush a secret. But there’s good reason for it – girl knows beauty. Understandably, when she partnered up with Tarte to come out with her own mini-palette, it sold out quicker than you can say Styled by Hrush. Good news is, you can still purchase it at Ulta.com. Here’s what we thought about her limited-edition palette:

What it is: A palette co-created with celebrity makeup artist Hrush Achemyan containing three shimmery shades (including a limited-edition white gold one), three matte shadows, and one peachy-pink blush.

What we liked: We loved the pigmented colors that you can use matte for a sophisticated day time look, or blend with the lusters to amp it up as a liner or shadows for an evening look. The colors are a universally-flattering combo for all-over, crease, and highlight shades. We love to use the peachy “Pinch” for everyday, the brown “Kitty” for our crease, and the decadent “Royal” purple as a hint of liner. The shimmery “Bliss” and “Smitten” add a nice pop of bling that’s so very Hrush. Not to mention, a peachy-pink blusher that gives us the prettiest flush to our cheeks. It has personality, with still very wearable colors. The size is perfect to throw in your purse — the sleek faux-crocodile leather embossed cover even makes it look like a mini-wallet.

What we didn’t like: What’s not to like?

Hrush Achemyan of @styledbyhrush Talks Brows and How to Slay

You might recognize her on IG as @styledbyhrush, a regular at red carpet events, or maybe even Kim Kardashian West’s glam guru/jet skiing buddy. Whichever way you may have come across her, one thing we can all agree on is Hrush Achemyan gives good brow. Which is why we’re not at all surprised when Make Up For Ever chose to collaborate with the makeup artist for their latest brow collection. While in Dubai to celebrate the launch, we caught up with Hrush about some of her makeup tips and the surprising things you might find in her purse. Read on!

Why was it so important for you to collaborate with a brand like Make Up For Ever?

It’s exciting! I was extremely honored that a brand which, when I started off as a makeup artist would have died to have the whole collection, actually asked me to collaborate with them on something I’m obsessed with. I have such bushy brows myself and I used to be made fun of for them for so long, and now it’s the it-trend. It’s like, look at me now! I’m just so obsessed with eyebrows. It was really a no-brainer for me to get on board.

What are your tips for making brows look fuller?

A new product that Make Up For Ever launched is the Brow Liquid Liner. You can fake extra hair if you use it properly. It adds the look of texture. The Aqua Brow for me though is what really attracted me to brand in the first place. I like to use it to lighten my eyebrows because they’re so aggressive looking. It’s actually what got me on to first using brow products.

Who in your opinion has the nicest brows right now?
Cara Delevingne!

If we look in your purse right now, what are three things we’d find?

You’re going to find a mini Sriracha bottle on a keychain…I’m not joking! You’ll probably find Chapstick, and I always carry a brush for my brows because if someone touches or rubs my face, one eyebrow goes down, so I have to brush it up again.

Being based in LA and visiting the Middle East, what do you think is the biggest difference between beauty in both places?

The Middle East loves black and I love that a woman feels so confident with her face. Girls in the U.S. like to glam, don’t get me wrong, even if they’re a little more low-key about it. I just believe wherever you are in the world whether from the U.S. or Middle East, with anything you wear if you wear it with confidence, you’re going to slay.
