Insider Access with Lexi Higgs
Lexi Higgs has an impressive resume and her portfolio just keeps growing! The DC, Maryland, and Virginia based freelance makeup artist is highly active as an industry influencer. She regularly works with photographers, videographers, models, stylists, clients, as well as other artists, and she recently participated in New York Fashion Week. She says “My love for makeup started a young age, but my interest further blossomed in high school, which is when I decided to seek makeup as a career. Not only have my experience and talents expanded; I have grown immensely as a person which is something I commend the art of makeup for!”
What is your go-to skincare routine?
My skincare routine isn’t too complex. First, I remove my makeup with a makeup wipe, then wash my face with the Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser. They key is to moisturize A LOT. For moisturizer, I switch between the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, the Bliss Ex-Glow-Sion Moisturizer, and the Clinique Moisture Surge.
One item you can’t leave home without?
I love a variety of lip products! Lipstick, lip gloss, liquid lipstick, lip balm… I need all of it!
If you only had 10 minutes to get ready, what makeup look could you achieve and how?
My hair would definitely be thrown up in a messy bun! As for makeup, I’d prep my skin well with moisturizer, and apply some MAC Strobe Cream for a natural glow. Then, I’d apply some concealer under the eyes to hide my dark circles, as well as on any blemishes or imperfections. I’d fill in my brows a bit with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz then set them with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel. Add some lip balm and your “no makeup” makeup look is complete!
What is your best beauty hack?
Check out your local TJ Maxx for discounted, high-end products! I seriously go to TJ Maxx at LEAST 3 times a week to check for new deals and products! I’ve purchased a ton of my high-end products from there.
What are your must-have beauty tools?
I can’t live without my Real Techniques Sponges! I use them for applying concealer, foundation, and powder.
