Clean and Classy: Products and Tips from Dior Makeup Artist Troycie


Dior makeup artist, Troycie McCray, has the ability to create clean, sophisticated looks. Whether more dramatic or more natural, Troycie’s artistry is always classy.

For this look, Troycie prepped her skin with Dior One Essential Serum and Dior Hydra Life Moisturizer. She started with Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup; and used Lorac POREfection Concealer for highlighting, and Black Opal foundation in Mocha to contour. She set with Ben Nye’s Banana powder.

She primed her eyes with Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer, and used Amber Nuit shadow by Dior, and Sapphire eyeliner by NYX. For her lips, Troycie lined with Nightmoth lip liner, and Rihanna 2 lipstick by Mac, followed by Too Faced’s Melted Sugar. She set with Mario Badescu Facial Spray.

Troycie has offered some fantastic lips for those who wish to perfect their look:

“One Essential detoxes and energizes my skin under makeup. I also use a little High Beam by Benefit to enhance my highlight. For a perfect wing, always keep a firm grip on skin. For a dramatic look, add a pop of color on water line and set with eyeshadow. For a fuller lash, I add Dior Maximizer. While still wet, I then apply my favorite Black Out mascara. For a standout lip, I use Fix It primer by Dior before adding lipstick and putting a light color directly in the center of my lip. Before brushing off extra Ben Nye powder, I spray my face with Mario Badescu spray to have a standout highlight.”  -Troycie McCray, Dior Makeup Artist

Thanks for the deets and the tips, Troycie, we all look forward to more from you!



  1. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog.
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see
    a great blog like this one these days.

    • Thank you, Tyson! This one was all Troycie- she sure is fabulous! 🙂

  2. I started using One Essnetial about 2 months ago and love it. My skin glows more than ever and its really smooth! I was using Vita Youth serum but it wrecked my skin. It made it really dried out but I still broke out with acne. I didn’t know that was possible but it happened! So I think I will stick with the One Essential from now on.

    • I’m so glad it helped your skin, Arron! Troycie used One Essential Serum on me during a makeover, and I really liked it. No problems with breakouts, dryness, or anything!

  3. It’s hard to find people as good at this as Troycie,
    she seems great, and her skin is glowing! I was using this cream called Serum of LIfe, but my skin always looked dried out and blotchy, so I’ve been looking for something different. I think I will have to get this essential dior serum and give it a try!

    • I agree, Scot, Troycie does always look great- and her skin really does glow, even in person! She used the One Essential Serum on me during a makeover, and my skin looked fabulous, I know you will love it!
