BIO: Nitsan Raiter is currently studying BBA at the Schulich School of Business.
Being only 20 years old, she is known among her friends and family to be the makeup artist that they all run to. Providing excellent service and quality, her peers can always count on her to help them look their best.
Q: How did you get into makeup?
A: I always played around with it but never thought much of it. Growing up, I always liked dressing up and going out. I got into makeup a few years ago and started watching and recreating YouTube videos, and then took it more seriously from there. I started doing friends’ makeup and their moms for events and weddings and it took off from there!
Q: What makes you love the beauty industry?
A: I love how makeup can empower someone, making them feel so much more confident and proud of who they are. I love how makeup allows you to bring out features that you love about yourself and enhance them, andbeing able to transform into basically a completely different character whenever you want!
Q: What are your top three products you can’t live without?
- A. Mascara (“Better than Sex” by Too Faced, or “Va-Va Volume Mascara” by Elizabeth Grant)
- B. Concealer. Brighten up eyes and hide dark circles
- C. Blush
Q: Which regular beauty tips do you offer to your clients?
A: Always curl lashes!!! Makes such a difference. And use bright eye liner or highlighter for inner tear ducts of eyes to open and brighten them up
Q: What are the most common beauty mistakes that you think people make?
A: Using the wrong colour foundation or concealer. People don’t realize how proper lighting shows it all
Q: What trends do you think are here to stay?
A: Big bold lashes!! All the way
Q: What is your main go-to beauty product? Why?
A: Combination of “They’re Real” by Benefit for length and “Better Than Sex” by two faces for volume. They’re both mascaras.
Q: Do you have any special signature tips or beauty secrets that set you apart?
A: Benetint by Benefit gives the best rosey cheeks and lips (lip and cheek stainer). So natural and pretty. Less is always more. Unless you’re going out… That’s a diff story. And always put mascara on lower lashes. Such a doll like look I love it
Q: When you are out on the town, what beauty products are staples in your purse?
A: Cover up. For when the night gets late and bags start to show. White eye liner or some highlighter to make me look more awake and use on my eyes and cheek bones. And definitely Mascara!!! A must have.
Q: Who is your dream client that you would love to work with?
A: Kylie Jenner. Her makeup is always flawless and so natural. I’d love to be able to do neutral tones on her or even see how a bolder look would look on her.
Q: Describe the most daring look you have created on a client or yourself.
A: Bold eye and lip. It’s hard to rock a bold smokey eye and a dark lip without lookin’ too “badass” but I found a way that worked and I was amazed.
Q: What was your most disastrous makeup experience? And how did you fix it?
A: Gel eye liner smudges all the time when clients open their eyes too early. And false lashes can be a mess. I try to take my time and explain what I’m doing to my client at every step of the way so that:
A) They know what’s going on
B) Can learn tips
C) Don’t open their eyes too early
