BRUSHING UP WITH THE BEST IN BEAUTY, NATALIE CAHILL, DIRECTOR OF BASE PRO ARTISTS.
Describe Base Pro Artists in three words: Professional. Stylish. Creative.
What inspired the creation of the brand? BASE Pro Artists was born from professional makeup artists who demanded more from their brushes and accessories. They wanted products which achieved ultimate application, looked stylish and provided a smoother, softer product delivery, making it comfortable for their clients.
What’s your beauty background? I come from a makeup artist background and have worked with big publications/brands and the shows, LFW, PFW and NYFW.
What do you love the most about being an independent beauty brand? Being independent we have a great sense of freedom, meaning we can create products that innovate the industry and by working directly with makeup artists we incorporate their feedback into our designs.
If you were stranded on a desert island, what one beauty item do you take? Moisturizer. Your skin is incredibly important and I never go a day without using it. (And I could use any spare coconuts on the island to nourish my hair)
What’s your biggest beauty pet peeve? Dirty makeup brushes and sharing makeup brushes. It’s unhygienic and cleaning them is so easy, just a tiny bit of a mild shampoo and wash. Over the years I have seen a lot of infections caused by carelessness. Its not pleasant and especially makeup artists should know better, hygiene is incredibly important.
Beauty to me is... That feeling of confidence, creativity and imagination. BaseProArtists.com
