Her roster includes the likes of Mila Kunis, Tracee Ellis Ross, Mandy Moore, Rebecca Rittenhouse and Angela Sarafyan, to name a few. Scroll ahead to see our interview with her.
Team GG: What is your signature look, and which products do you use to create it?
My signature look changes from a super no-makeup look to a smoky eye. My favorite way to create a smoky eye is to layer a cream eye shadow, like the Chanel Illusion D’Ombre, with a powder eye shadow on top. It creates depth and gives long lasting wear.
Team GG: We have always admired the way you make Mila Kunis’ and Tracee Ellis Ross’ cheekbones pop! Can you let us in on the secret to making this happen at home?
To create amazing cheekbones I have been loving the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Glow Shot in ‘Daylight’. It is pretty on its own or mixed with a base.
Team GG: What is one expert tip you would like to share with our readers?
A tip I love is to mix the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Glow Shot with the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer for the under eye to create luminous coverage that makes you looked refreshed, without looking like you have a lot of makeup on.
Team GG: What are 3 makeup products you can’t live without?
The Troy Surratt Lash Curler, the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealers, and the Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Cream Eye Shadows.
Team GG: What’s been the most exciting moment for you career-wise?
Shooting the Dior Ads with Mila was an epic moment for me!
