Beauty on the Streets: Lilit Caradanian

This week’s spotlight is on makeup guru, Lilit Caradanian of Lilit’s Makeup Studio in Sherman Oaks, CA. I came across her first on Instagram, where she shares gorgeous shots from her studio and helpful makeup tutorials. Read on to learn more about what makes her tick: -Shy


Name: Lilit Caradanian

Age: 29

Occupation: Makeup Artist/Business Owner

Location: Sherman Oaks, CA

“My goal is to never stop moving, to never get comfortable and to always make new goals. I specialize in weddings and bridal parties, but I also teach and own a makeup studio/school. I’ve been in the industry for 12 years now, and also working on starting my own swimsuit covers (LeRush) that will be available starting March.”

When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I think is: “How am i going to organize my day? :)”

The song I have on repeat right now is: B.o.B – Chandelier

Growing up, I really wanted to be: I never really knew. I got my degree in sociology and Masters in business because I knew no matter what career I fell into, these were the two things that would help me greatly.

The best part about being a makeup artist is: Meeting so many people!

My best beauty tips is: Don’t try and look like someone else–it wont be your best look.

People usually compliment my: Eyes, because I’m always doing tutorials on myself.

I’ll never forget: I almost got stuck in San Fransisco when I had a bridal party to do at 6 am. Mini-heart attack.

For my skin, I use: Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanserr and Deep Pore Cleansing Masque because I have oily skin and it deeply cleans the pores. I also love their Pore Minimizing Lotion during the day, and Josie Maran Argan Oilat nights.

My favorite place in the whole world is: Europe! The history which LA lacks. Everything here is modernized.

Current beauty product obsession: Kevyn Aucoin Liquid Airbrush Foundation. Gives you an amazing glow without the oily aftermath.

But I also can’t live without: Beautyblender! Best blending product ever created.

Worst habit: Being too much of a perfectionist. One project may take me forever because of it!

My favorite scent is:By Kilian Good Girl Gone Bad

People might be surprised to know that: I cannot gain weight for the life of me. No matter what I do and what I eat, I don’t gain weight. [Editor note: Jealous]

My current favorite hair product is: Oribe Dry Texturing Hair Spray.

I don’t understand people who don’t like: Sweets. I live and breathe sweets.

The restaurant I can never get tired of is: Mantee Cafe in Studio City, CA. You have to try their traditional mantee!

Though I can make a mean: Baked ziti.

I hope in 5 years: Have a family of my own and possibly my own line of products!

Who inspires me: My dad. His creativity and ambition is endless.
