Today is the International Woman’s Day, but I decided to talk about a man. I mean, THE man. Did you ever hear about Isaac Meyers? I bet you did, but if not, you should check him out right now!
He is one of the greatest makeup artists nowadays, and I had the pleasure of talking to him for the second time (first time we talked was when I interviewed him for Salt Lake magazine). Isaac Meyers is all over the world working with some of the greatest people, just like Ashton Kutcher and Rihanna. Amazing, right? He loves doing fashion and beauty editorials, and they are his favorite type of work. “I love the feeling and creativity I get from it,” Isaac says. Right now he has been working with E Television on their new reality show “Playing with Fire,” which was filmed at The 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
Besides being super talented and a great artist, he is also very sweet! With so much work on his hands, he took the time to answers some of our beauty questions.

Isaac Meyers – Sothys Paris- Teint Lift Defense Foundation. I like the smooth light weight coverage is gives. It also very build able for Full Coverage, but the products I can’t live without are Got Beauty, Pops Eyeliner & lip liners. They glide on with easy application. I also can’t live without Sothys Paris- Creme Yeux Effect Smoky Creme Eyeshadow.

Q. And where do you find inspiration to work?
IM – The people that inspire me are Kabuki Magic Makeup Artist. He is absolutely the best editorial artist out there that creates with his heart. I aspire to be a newer, younger version of Kabuki.
Back in October, Beauty Buff introduced local makeup artist Isaac Meyers. He’s seen and worked with a lot of famous faces in his day, making up celebs like Etta James, Rob Lowe, Josh Gad, Octavia Spencer, Ray Liotta, Ashton Kutcher and Rihanna, and this weekend, his work will shine on the red carpets at the Oscars.
Though he can’t spill the beans just yet on who he’ll be beautifying for Sunday’s big event, he’s let us in on a few of his personal pointers for getting your own red carpet look at home.
First, start with a foundation that offers coverage that will leave your skin looking flawless, but not cakey. “Red carpet skin is always matte and medium to full coverage,” Meyers says.
A surefire way to catch the camera is a pair of lips that can’t be missed. “Oscar season usually brings out dark burgundy or red lips,” he says. “I’m sure we will see some matte red lips and a lot of smoky eyes.” There are hundreds of choices for great red lip shades, so look for one that best complements your complexion. And if you’re looking to hit the town in true celeb fashion, we’d suggest opting for a long-wearing formula.
And as for eyes, Meyers predicts that the Pantone color of the year (yep, that’s emerald) will be rocking the red carpet this year, so keep an eye out to see how many variations you can spot.
Isaac Meyer’s Makeup Must-Haves:
“And of course I can’t live without Japanese cosmetic line Koh Gen Do’s pearl highlighter. This is a celebrity’s best friend. This product is blended on top of the foundation under the eyes, forehead and down the middle of face and neck. It diffuses the light and brightens other areas.”
To celebrate the Sundance Film Festival, Got Beauty discussed beauty tips with Celebrity Makeup Artist & Stylist Isaac Meyers on KSL TV 5 who will be working with the lovely Amanda Seyfried among others on the red carpet this year!
A few fun factoids from Got Beauty owner and creator of POPS Cosmetics,
“I was raised in the beauty industry and the movie makeup industry. My grandmother Marjean Lowe, worked for Warner Brothers makeup department and helped develop both Max Factor and Redken. My uncle, Gary Liddiard, has been Robert Redford’s personal makeup artist and groomer for over 40 years, and still is. My niece and several cousins work as makeup artists for major motion pictures today.
Being so closely in touch with industry leaders like this totally helps us stay up to date with trends and more importantly products that really work!
Our makeup brand POPS Cosmetics was originally developed as a theatrical and photographical makeup line, but the highly pigmented colors and the ‘stay-put-ability’ needed for bright lights and sometimes hot sets have made it a popular line among all our clients.”
KSL Reporter, Jenn Hardman will be interviewing me, Live from Got Beauty plus showing you the hottest looks for Sundance. I will also reveal my new clients for the festival. Please tune in.
