Getting down to the goods, we asked her…
What’s your most memorable experience in the beauty industry?
“Last February I got to work on an epic photoshoot. I grew up in the 80′s and 90′s and I was (and still am) OBSESSED with fashion magazines and knew the names of all the key players. So when I got the chance to work with Photographer Peter Lindbergh, Hair stylist Didier Malige, makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi, and model Arizona Muse, for Vogue magazine I was ecstatic. I actually cried on my way home when it was over, thinking about how the teenage me would have been so proud. I will always cherish that experience, it lived up to all my expectations and then some.”
What do you love about being in the beauty industry?
“I think my favorite thing about the industry is that it touches on so many aspects of society- art, science, business, nature, and psychology.“
