Sunday Feature: You Go BOY! Featuring Makeup Artist and Buissness Owner Suresh Seneviratne

Every Sunday I feature a blogger, artist, photographer, makeup artist, actress, socialite or all around awesome person on my blog in a feature I like to call "You Go Girl!" or in some cases "You Go Boy!".

This week Ill be featuring my first You go Boy! feature makeup artist and owner of Suresh Beauty, Suresh Seneviratne!

has worked as a makeup artist for companies such as Smashbox, Chanel, Richard Tyler, Oscar De La Renta, Nordstrom, and over the years has built up an impressive client list of singers, models and actresses. Hes also created his own lip gloss line called glossLUXE ($21) which consists of 10 beautiful shades all named after special women in his life.

His charming smile and friendly nature is what drew me to Suresh but when I saw his work I knew I had to introduce him to you all. I chatted with Suresh recently and here's his take on beauty,life and his career.


Who is Suresh and why are you so fabulous?
I'm a professional makeup artist and fun-loving guy who never takes life too seriously. I love to draw, paint, sketch, and am obsessed with color. I'm fabulous because I give my undivided attention to the people in my life. Beauty is an interesting concept to me and I try to show all my clients that "beauty" starts from the inside. I think that's pretty fabulous, don't you?

Where can we find you on the world wide web?
My company website:

What beauty product(s) would you recommend all ladies have in their makeup bag?
A concealer, pressed powder, all-in-one rouge pot, and lip gloss.

What are some of your 'go to' beauty product when doing bridal makeup?
Smashbox photo finish primer, Ardell individual flare lashes, Chanel matte neutral eye shadows, and CoverGirl lip stain.

How did you get your start in the beauty industry?
The Estee Lauder counter at my local department store. It opened up my eyes to the world of cosmetics and I fell in love with everything about it.

How long have you been in the industry?
Since 1999.

Who would you say have been some of your favorite celeb or high profile clients?
I love working with supermodels...some of my favorites have been Carmen Kass, Lily Donaldson, Crystal Renn.

Do you have any "rules" about makeup/beauty that you feel everyone should live by?
Your skin should be perfected, always. No blemishes, red spots, or dark circles. Color will not look as beautiful as it could if your skin is a distraction.

Are there any makeup or beauty faux pas you can't stand?
People who think MAC is the only answer to makeup. Every line has something great to offer so experiment with products and different looks.

Are there any beauty trends that you love right now?
I don't really follow many trends, but I love that bright lip color is making a comeback. I got so tired of the "nude" lip.

What prompted the Suresh Beauty Lipgloss collection and will there be other beauty products added to the line down the road?
I wanted to create the perfect lip gloss...smooth, light, comfortable, and beneficial. So many products I had were sticky and just gross. Mine has beneficial vitamins and minerals, is super smooth without being gummy, and protects your lips with an SPF. The Suresh Beauty Color Collection will continue to grow starting with eye colors coming soon!

Favorite foundation, lipstick/lipgloss & mascara?
L'Oreal True Match foundation, Cle de Peau lipstick, Suresh Beauty lipgloss (of course), Mabelline mascara.

Favorite career moment or highlight?
Working with Adriana Lima at my first NY Fashion Week back in 2000.

What can people expect from Suresh Beauty in the future?
More beauty tips, makeup solutions, and straight forward, fabulous products.

Any last words or advice on beauty?
Smile, stand up straight, and look people in the eye. There's nothing more beautiful than confidence!

Thank you so much to Suresh for chatting with me and offering his advice, knowledge and words on Faces By Farah.

I will admit, I am a MAC snob. I adore their cosmetics, but am trying to go outta the box more. I just have no idea where to start! Love Suresh's advice ... confidence is beauty! If you don't have it on the inside, it doesn't matter how much make-up you wear on the outside!
Have a great week, Farah!!
