Sunday Spotlight: Lindsey Jones
In this week’s Sunday Spotlight, we hit up Lindsey Jones, the Founder & CEO of Lindsey Jones Makeup Artistry for some makeup & grooming tips for a first date!
The San Diego native began her career in New York City, working directly with Bobbi Brown, assisting her in major shoots. In 2010, she founded Lindsey Jones Makeup Artistry, offering pretty, durable, studio-quality makeup to clients for weddings, galas, fundraisers, and other monumental events.
Lindsey has worked on thousands of features, face, and skin tones. She now ranks #1 among all makeup artists in Manhattan on Yelp.com. She describes her makeup style as “classically pretty: fresh cheeks, pink lips, soft lashes, wide-open peepers”
Finally, did we mention that she is a CMB member? Guys, you might get her as your Bagel on your lucky day :)

2. Could you give us some grooming tips for guys?
Skin: Make sure your skin isn’t flaky (slightly hydrated but not greasy). Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid and Bobbi Brown’s Oil Control Lotion are affordable options to hydrate your skin. If you feel like splurging, try trending makeup products 2019!
Brows: Don’t over do it! They should be a little bushy, not too done. Get an angled brush or an empty/clean mascara wand to brush your brow up, not downwards. (Laura Mercier makes a great mascara wand brush, or the next time you’re shopping at a makeup counter, ask the makeup artist for a mascara wand, they have hundreds of disposable mascara wands that you can resuse.)
Then apply a brow powder. As a rule of thumb, the brow powder should be the color of your roots.
Lips: If your lips are chapped, while you’re brushing your teeth, brush you lips with your toothbrush too. Then apply a thin layer of Chapstick (My favorite is Cherry Chapstick!)
3. (Bonus for New Yorkers!) What is your idea of the best Sunday date in NYC?
“My idea of the perfect Sunday date is to take the Ferry to Governor’s island, bike around the island together, then to get ice cream and just chill. After relaxing, it would be fun to finish the night with some dancing at a place with live music!”
