Bilkerdijk Custom Blend Cosmetics

Being a makeup artist in so many different locations, I get to meet so many new people. I recently met up with celebrity Makeup Artist, Barbara Bilkerdijk, while working together at a movie press event. I want to share something very unique about her.

Barbara has been a celebrity makeup artist for over twenty years. She has worked extensively in film and publicity, applying her innovative makeup techniques and products to some of Hollywood’s coveted celebrities. Her celebrity portfolio includes Lil Kim, FAITH, Monica Bellucci, Morgan Freeman and Denzel Washington.

Barbara combined her years of experience in the cosmetic industry and her life long artistic background to create Bilkerdijk’s unique oil-free and moisturizing; water based blends that offer “breathable” coverage for the everyday woman.

I love having a unique blend made just for you. How many times do you go to the store and are uncertain about what color you may be?  You may be two or three shades mixed together but you certainly don’t want to buy more than one bottle right?  Seasons change skin tones lighten or darken. You can get a shade for summer and then again for winter.

All  Bilkerdijk foundations are Customblended and will be matched exactly to your skin tone and skin type. You must visit the  NYC studio for a color match. Once they have your recipe on file you can order online.
