Ask the Guru: Nordstrom’s Makeup Artist

Geoffrey Coyle wants to help you freshen up your beauty routine.

What’s your tried-and-true skincare product?

My Clarisonic. It’s a personal, at-home facial device. I bought it nine years ago, and I just replace the brush heads every three months.   

What brush should every woman have in her makeup bag?

A duo-fiber fan brush—it gives you an airbrushed effect. You can use it for setting powders, blush, and highlighting. It’s great for blending because it won’t bombard the face with product.

What’s your go-to lip color?

Amaretto Swirl by Laura Mercier. It’s a brown-pink nude that you can wear year-round.

Wedding season is approaching. What’s your No. 1 tip for brides?

Every bride needs a strip of lashes. Try Ardell Glamour Wispies, and don’t put mascara on them.

What’s your favorite product for tired eyes?

A champagne-colored liner, as opposed to white, on the bottom waterline of your eyes. White liner can look too stark.

Which spring trend are you excited about?

Softer brows. It’s about matching your skin tone, not necessarily your hair. I love Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted BrowGel for that.
