The Makeup Chair is a monthly column by Jillian Wilkey, a professional makeup artist in the Bay Area.
Noelle Weatherwax is a second-generation cosmetologist and the owner of Concrete Rose Salon in Santa Cruz, Calif. She describes her personal style as a mix between Miss Frizzle from The Magic School Bus, Gwen Stefani, and Peg Bundy. When she's not busy making people feel beautiful, she's either tearing up the dance floor with her husband, talking to her cats like a crazy person, or watching a tacky reality show about people from New Jersey. Weatherwax has an indescribable uniqueness. In her own words, here's what's in her bag:
Anastasia Liquid Lipstick: I love this formula. I prefer a matte finish with my lip rings, otherwise product can end up all over my face. This liquid lipstick stays all day and adds extra drama without looking like its Halloween. My favorite shade is Vamp.
Jerome Russell Pixie Sparkle: This has been part of my beauty routine since the sixth grade. I like to add a little bit around the inner corner of my eyes and brow bone. Glitter is always appropriate.
Phillip Kingsley One More Day: I only wash my hair once a week so I need something to get me through it. What I like most about this dry shampoo vs. others is that it is antimicrobial, which means it actually cleanses your scalp. Not only does One More Day soak up the oil, it smells super yummy. too.
Jane Iredale PurePressed Foundation: This is the only product that when I wear it, people compliment my skin, not my makeup.
Nars Blush in Orgasm: A cult favorite, this is a universal shade with just the right amount of peach and pink. I like to use this as a blush and on my eyes.
Next month we'll be finding out what Jennalee Dahlen, owner of Santa Cruz Skin Solutions, has in her bag.
