ON THE BEST BEAUTY ADVICE
“I think the best piece of beauty advice I have ever received is to take good care of your skin and to remove my makeup before bed. I remember reading an article as a teenager around the early 2000’s Dukes of Hazard time period, where Jessica Simpson said that no matter how tired she was, she would always take off her makeup. I get so much satisfaction from removing my makeup at the end of the day and then applying a serum and moisturizer that makes my skin plump and supple the next morning.
ON HER BEAUTY REGRETS
In terms of beauty regrets, I think we have all worn things we wish we hadn’t. When I first started to wear makeup, I would constantly be drawn to forest green and dark gray eye shadows. I also had a light purple cream eyeshadow that had a doe foot application and it did nothing but crease. I also had a tendency to like very glossy lips. While the way I apply my makeup has since evolved – thank god! – it was a good learning experience and in my defense, there were no beauty gurus on YouTube explaining how to apply the shadows!
