Kaley Cuoco’s Makeup Artist Reveals Her Red Carpet Beauty Secrets

Whether she’s rocking aubergine eye shadow or fuchsia lipstick, Kaley Cuoco’s beauty looks are always refreshingly unique. According to her longtime makeup artist Jaime Greenberg, the 33-year-old The Big Bang Theory star crushes the red carpet time and time again for one specific reason: her risk taking. 

When we chatted with Greenberg during a Celebeauty Sit-Down, she explained that Cuoco constantly tries new things.

“She isn’t afraid to take risks. She loves to try new things. She doesn’t care what people think. It’s liberating and refreshing to work with her!,” Greenberg, who also lists Jessica Alba, Rashida Jones and Busy Philipps as clients, explained. “I’m always pushing my clients to step out of their comfort zone with makeup.”

Although Cuoco does like to keep it fresh, she also has a signature makeup look for when they’re in a pinch. “We never do the same thing twice, but a smoky eye with a nude lip is our go-to!” Greenberg shared.

“She loves a great nude lip. A good eye cream. She loves eye tools. A fun lash,” Greenberg went on to say.

For those as adventurous as Cuoco, Greenberg says she “recommends picking up eye and blush palettes at a store like Marshalls. They have some of my favorite brands at amazing prices, and with a palette you’ll be able to experiment with a variety of shades.”

The celebrity makeup artist also noted that in addition to her willingness to try new things, Cuoco is a generally lovely client: “Kaley is the most wonderful person! She is so collaborative and loves having a good time. Two things I love, too. I’m so lucky to work with her and call her a best friend.”
