Exclusive Interview: Lifetime’s Blush: In The Search of the Next Great Makeup Artist Sharzad

We spoke to Blush: The Search For the Next Great Makeup Artist contestant Sharzad. The show premiered on Lifetime where 9 aspiring makeup artists try to outdo one another for a one-year contract as a professional with Max Factor, $100,000 in cash, and a chance to show off their skills in a major glossy magazine cover shoot. Sharzad gave us an exclusive interview and gave us insight on the show and what she is up to today.

What was the best experience you had on the show Blush?

The best thing about working on Blush was meeting all the people.  I had so much fun getting to know my fellow contestants, many of whom I am still in touch with.  It was also a pleasure getting to know the judge that kicked me off, lol, Joanna Schlip, who I ended up assisting the past few years.

What is a good way to get into makeup career?I loved doing makeup and playing with makeup since I was a little girl. It wasn’t until I graduated from UCLA that realized I could make a career out of it.  I never had any professional training, but I applied at a MAC counter in West Hollywood and fortunately got the job.  After eight months I was ready to move on and I landed a job as a makeup artist with Chanel and later YSL at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills.  I was the youngest makeup artist working there at the time.  After another year of retail it was time for me to pursue freelance.  I quit my steady job, took a leap of faith and never looked back!  Working as a freelance makeup artist is a tricky thing to do.  It’s not for everyone.  One month I was on tour making great money every day and the next month I was barely scraping by. When you are a freelance makeup artist you also have to be a business woman. (ie making a website, getting business cards and most importantly marketing yourself ) I would spend HOURS on craigslist applying for every makeup job I saw, that’s actually how I found out about BLUSH!

If makeup is something that you are passionate about, keep doing it and the money will eventually come. Everyone’s path is different

What are you currently working on?

I am currently working on my new blog called LuxLyfe. LuxLyfe is a lyfestyle blog with categories that include Beauty, Health & Fitness, Food & Drink, Travel and Events.  It is a fun, happy, sometimes sassy space where I share my recommendations on everything I love. My motto is “Follow me if you want to have fun!”

Below is her video response check it out!

What is the One Beauty Product You Should Never Live Without?

Bronzer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We spoke to Mobile Makeup Artist Anna Grimes of Beautymarkartists.com and she gave us her professional opinion about bronzer:

“Bronzer is my best friend and if I had to run out the door and could only grab one makeup product it would be my bronzer! My ultimate favorite bronzer that I use everyday, and that is flattering to almost every skin tone, would have to be

Chanel’s Moisturizing Bronzer Powder in Terre Epice.  It gives the skin warmth, a subtle illumination, and is oil-free.

Another favorite of mine, that can be used in many different ways, is Too Faced Caribbean In A Compact – Snow Bunny.  You can sweep your brush over all three colors for a shimmery bronze glow that is not too brown because the pink helps balance it out.  You can also sweep your brush in the white or in the pink for an illuminating effect on your upper cheekbones.”

Thank you Anna for this great tip!!! Readers, because we love you we found a video by  and she shows you “How to Apply Bronzer”. So now you know what are the best bronzers on the market and how to apply it. Enjoy 🙂
