– Patrick, what was the first ever RBR product you’ve used? What was your impression?
– The first RBR product I used was the MILK AQUARELLE Liquid Foundation. I was agreeably surprised by how this product is compatible with every skin type I work with. The foundation can help create a perfect daytime look. Ideal for creating perfectly natural-looking skin. I love it.

– What is beautiful skin to you and what do you do to achieve the look?
– Flawless, beautiful skin means for me that it looks like your skin with a touch of products to enhance it. First, clean the skin with a gentle peeling, then apply a lot of day cream. After that, apply a touch of concealer under the eyes and then only a touch of foundation onto the skin. Finish with a powder to set the concealer under the eyes and add a little bit of highlighter to your cheeks. And always remember – less is more.

– Which make-up artists do you find particularly inspiring and why?
– In particular, Janina Zais and Anja Fichtenmeyer. They are really good friends of mine. I love how they work, the looks they're creating – very simple but outgoing and special. I love how they do natural skin and that they both try to work with as little product as possible to achieve it.

– If you were to add one new product to the RBR collection, what would it be?
– An eyebrow kit complete with an eyebrow powder, a pencil and an eyebrow liquid for grooming. Also, an a eye shadow palette for creating the perfect natural eye make-up that looks like waking up after a really good night.

– What is your signature look?
– Natural glossy skin with a hint of highlight and big brows.

Thanks, Patrick!
