Michelle Obama's Big Beauty Secret

Michelle Obama is the nation's first First Lady to employ a full-time makeup artist to her traveling entourage. What do you think of that?

Michelle Obama

There's no doubt Michelle Obama always looks flawless, and when traveling Europe last week, she was picture perfect every day wearing perfectly chosen ensembles. Also perfect was her hair and makeup, because, as the NY Post reports, she hired make-up artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles. Grimes-Miles is rumored to be responsible for Michelle's big beauty change -- the shape of her eyebrows: Michelle's brows went from high-arched to having a softer arch, giving her a friendlier look. Ingrid shared some of Michelle's secrets on how she gets camera ready:

1. Fake lashes -- always
2. Smoky eyes
3. Softly arched brows
4. Iridescent pearl facial highlighter to give her skin a healthy glow

Though the Obamas are personally picking up the tab for the makeup artist, some have responded controversially saying they think Michelle's full-time makeup artist is excessive. Hey, if we had to be on camera everyday, we definitely wouldn't want to be doing our own hair and makeup. Not to mention, Michelle is being closely watched as she has risen to fashion icon status.

No, I don’t think this is excessive at all. Although I think Michelle is a beautiful woman all around, I don’t think her face is her strongest asset. In addition to this, she is always in the public eye and expected to be perfect. With that said, I do think she needs someone with make-up expertise to accompany her and help her go from beautiful to flawlessy gorgeous.

Are you kidding me “Michelle Obama is the nation’s first First Lady to employ a full-time makeup artist to her traveling entourage.” Great use of tax dollars! Michelle is almost as egotistical as her husband.

Yes, she’s the first First Lady to have a traveling makeup artist with her always. …but she’s also the first one to need one. She is one of the ugliest women ever.

Thank you, Lisa!!

Read the article they are paying for it out of their own back pockets. And Hillary always had someone to do her hair and makeup when she was going to make on camera appearances.

I feel that it is wonderful that Michelle has a full time make-up artist. I was wondering how her make-up was looking so perfect everyday. Now I know.
