Blush Asks…Make-up Artist Louise Goodson

In less than a fortnight Blush is going on the road to Isle of Wight Festival. In preparation we met up with some very cool make-up artists, but the one we loved the most was Louise Goodson. Not only is Louise super talented but she’s also a DJ and will be contributing to Blush. In anticipation of her forthcoming pieces, we got to know Louise the Blush way.


Name Louise Goodson

Occupation Make-up Artist

Lives in… East London

What product are you loving at the moment?

Caudalie Divine Oil

Caudalie Divine Oil (£25.65, FeelUnique), as it make your skin feel and smell amazing. It’s especially great on holiday to prolong a tan.

Where do you buy your beauty bits?

GlossyBox Gift  SpaceNK store

Love Lula, Space NK and lately I’ve been relying on Glossy Box for keeping me updated and stocked up with new products. Which spa or salon do you have on speed dial?

Sophie Gass in Holland Park (4 Ladbroke Grove, W11 3BG), for lovely manis and pedis. It’s always a treat to go there.

What product can’t you live without?

Lucas Papaw
             Lucas Papaw Ointment (£14.99, Amazon) is great for everything; and Bronzer!
 What’s the most random location you’ve been to for a shoot?
     A night shoot filming in a Newsagents’ basement on Brick Lane. Some very interesting                                                            sights to be seen! 
                               What look do you love to create for shoots?
          I love a good Rock & Roll heavily kohled eye, with perfect skin and nude lips.

Which 3 products in your kit could you not live without out?

Inglot 6ss brush Inglot eyeshadow Bioderma

Bioderma Cleansing Water (£3, Escentual), Inglot 6SS Blending Brush (£16, Inglot) and Inglot Eyeshadows (£12, Inglot).

When and why did you decide to become a make-up artist?

At about 18/19, when I started working on film sets as a runner and was always envious of the make-up artists.

What last made you blush? It’s a secret 😉
