"Hi I'm Patricia Longo and I'm a celebrity make-up artist.I have worked with models from 'Sports Illustrated' like Brooklyn Decker and Julie Henderson to Alec Baldwin in '30 Rock'. All those things that experts do that the average person doesn't know how to do, will learn how to do it on these videos.

I always say moisturizer is hope in a bottle. I have lot of friends who go out and buy La Perrie and Creme de la Mer and when they see what's in my closet they are shocked. I buy Oil of Olay or Neutrogena. I don't spend a lot on moisturizer even though people think they have to spend two-three hundred dollars on a eye cream or moisturizer for the face... but that's not the case. Companies like Oil of Olay and Neutrogena...they actually know what they are doing. What I recommend is looking at the ingredients. If you have a oily skin, stay away from anything that has oils in it. I always try to choose an oil-free moisturizer, specially if you are combination, you are very oily in the T-zone. If you are very dry skinned, I would recommend someone like Shiseido. Shiseido makes a beautiful moisturizer for a dry skin and they are reasonably priced. So you don't have to spend a fortune on a moisturizer, you can spend a fair amount or go the cheap route like I do. I'm 40 and I'm proud to say I look good at my age. I have always used Oil of olay and Neutrogena."
