We’re very interested in celebrating all of our favorite women and honing their super-secret beauty tips, tricks, and product musts (see Katie Holmes, Halle Berry, and January Jones to name a few), but who better to investigate? next to the Queen of Christmas herself, Mariah Carey? I’ve been an avid fan of the singer since listening to “Honey” (um, I was four), and my admiration and appreciation for the star only grew over the years.
Of course, if all of my Christmas dreams came true, I would transform myself into a Swarovski-enchanted Mariah every December, but since this will likely never happen (hey, a girl can dream), instead I turned to longtime makeup artist and very much close friend Kristofer Buckle from Star to get involved in her beauty magic. (Fun fact: Buckle has been with Carey’s side since 1997 and is responsible for all of her most iconic beauty moments.) So if, like me, you’re just wanting some of Carey’s best beauty secrets for Christmas this year, keep these scrolling. Buckle shares his top 6 below!
