We’re interested in what President Barack Obama had to say, we promise, but we can’t help gushing over Michelle Obama‘s hair and makeup! The First Lady always looks flawless — and we’ve got the EXCLUSIVE breakdown on her look from her makeup artist.
Michelle Obama At The State Of The Union — Gorgeous Hair & Makeup
At the State Of The Union address, which took place in Washington, D.C. on January 20, Michelle looked gorgeous and sophisticated.
Michelle wore her voluminous hair down and flowing past her shoulders. Her makeup was classy and natural and her flawless skin was hard to miss.
Her makeup artist of 5 years, Carl Ray, gave us the deets on her makeup, and in his words, “Her entire look was on fleek!”
“Some of my favorite products that I love to use on clients are Make Up For Ever products, MAC products and NARS products. I love contour and highlighting bone structure. And I love a fabulous smokey eye — shades of plum are very complimentary paired with a soft sexy pink lip.”
He definitely got her look right because her plum eyeshadow allowed her eyes to pop and went perfectly with her pink lipstick. She wore a chic fitted-zippered grey suit jacket by Michael Kors and matching skirt from the Fall 2013 collection.
Michelle Obama’s Hairstylist Speaks On His Favorite Products
Johnny Wright has been Michelle’s official hairstylist since 2009.
He told The Huffington Post that Michelle’s hair looks so great because it’s “100 percent natural and it’s all about using great products.”
The product line he loves and uses on the First Lady is Optimum Salon Haircare.
We love their Treasured Temple Edge Tamer, which protects against frizz and humidity and smooths and conditions flyaways and “baby hairs.”
We also love their Rejuvenating Oil, which is a multi-use product. It can be used daily to smooth and add shine, and/or weekly as a deep conditioner. The products use Amla Oil from India, which women have been using for hundreds of years thanks to the antioxidant properties, as well as the vitamins and minerals in the oil.
Healthy hair is beautiful hair!
