So Terri, everyone's buzzing about your upcoming Nashville Beauty Event. Tell us about it.

Thank you for asking. I will be doing two seminars, one for women who would like to learn how to have a foolproof, easy makeup routine, and the other for professionals who want to know more about my techniques and the products I use on my celebrity clients. Attendees will have fun, learn some new makeup tips, and get a bag filled with some of my favorite products.

Sounds like fun!  As a world-renowned celebrity makeup artist, your looks for Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum are always fabulous. How do you collaborate with her to create such great makeup?

It's truly a team effort.  I work very closely with Hillary and her wardrobe stylist, Lee Moore.  We always look at what she'll be wearing before creating a look so that it all has cohesion.  We then consider the event of course, which will denote the type of look we can go for as well.  And we pay very close attention to any and all up-to-the-minute trends.  After that, we simply let our inspirations guide us.

What features of Hillary's do you love to play up?

Hillary has the best face for playing with makeup.  Her eyes are great fun to work on.  What I love about her features are how truly versatile they are.  Hillary is gorgeous with very natural makeup, but she can also wear very dramatic makeup looks and pull them off so easily.

Does Hillary have any favorite beauty products she swears by?

Yes.  Hillary absolutely loves Amazing Concealer by Amazing Cosmetics.  The Amazing Concealer helps to erase any skin imperfections beautifully.  She is also a big fan of Powderset by Amazing Cosmetics.  This product is a colorless setting pwoder that helps give your skin the perfect finishing touch.  La Mer Eye Intense Balm is also a favorite of Hillary's.  This product helps eliminate the look of puffiness and works great.

What tips and tricks can we use to achieve Hillary's flawless makeup?  How do you recommend we switch up our makeup routine for a mini makeover or new look for spring?

I would recommend making small and subtle changes to your makeup to get a flawless effect.  Even when going for a dramatic look, it always best to remember that less is more as far as foundation goes. A little definitely goes a long way.  This spring, try a brighter lip color.  Go for a shade that is more of a sheen than a gloss.

What tried and true makeup steps do you always follow with all clients?

I swear by Amazing Concealer.  You only need to use a very small amount of it to get the look you want. It is so concentrated and its truly like having a magic eraser.  For me, it is always a makeup go-to.

Do you have any product favorites you recommend our readers incorporate into their beauty routines?

i would recommend women try the Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum, the Amazing Concealer, and for a healthy glow all over, use a great self tanner that is easy to control and provides a realistic color.  St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse is a great product to try.
