Celebrity makeup artist Terrell Mullin’s attention to detail and innovative ideas make him the first choice for stars such as Eva Marcille(his cousin), Niecy Nash, Kimora Lee Simmons, Amber Riley, Angela Basset and Mary Mary. Establishing a reputation for his flawless looks and clean makeup techniques, Terrell’s commitment to learn and willingness to grow have paved the way for his success.
“One of the things I love most about working with Niecy is that she lovesmakeup. I can never put too much of anything on her, but I do like to keep her look rather minimal and let her big, brown eyes stand out. I love to work with a lot of bronze tones to give her a natural glow. I like to us M.A.C. Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit to create the perfect shimmery look for her. I stick with a deep, nude lipgloss for Niecy’s lips and define her lashes with several coats of black mascara.”
“When I work with Kimora Lee Simmons, I feel like I’m hanging with my homegirl from around the corner! She’s so down to earth and just a lot of fun. Kimora loves to wear a “smokey eye.” I find that Kevyn Aucoin’s The Eye Pencil Primatif in Basic Blackhelps me to achieve the perfectly dramatic and smoked-out look I like. I pair her dark eye look with a nude, glossy lip. And speaking of lips, Kimora’s are beautiful. They’re so plump and full that they make a statement in any shade!”
“It’s great working with Eva Marcille, not only because she is my cousin, but also because she never questions me. She never asks me what I am dong or which look I am going for, she just allows me to work my magic and accentuate her beauty. I always like to highlight her cheeks because they’re so big and go on forever. My go-to product when creating a makeup look for Eva is Sensual Skin Enhancer in SX 12 by Kevin Aucoin. I love it because it leaves her with a radiant, healthy-looking glow.”
