Red lipstick goes everywhere with me.
It’s a great day or night tool. It can be high impact or like a stain and I also use it on my cheeks from time to time to give it a little flush and color.
When I was younger, I couldn’t even find the right foundation and had to mix several shades and hope for the best.
Finding the right color has been a big struggle for me growing up. That’s what I did. I’ve tried the products on myself, friends, and family and I’m very proud of the palette we’ve created, with its amazingly pigmented shades, that accentuate universal skin tones. I have worked and worked on the foundation aspect of beauty. Even with us at Max Factor, our range of foundations means you can find your exact skin tone. We want to challenge the traditional concept of beauty, the definition of beauty in entertainment and advertising. The conversations we had about this collection were about different things. It’s not just different skin tones. Different people, different personalities. It’s not up to us to define what beauty looks like.
When I touch up my makeup in the afternoon, I only remove makeup under my eyes and around my mouth.
After moisturizing again, instead of layering make-up on top of make-up, apply just a little to leave it hydrated and supple.
My definition of beauty is confidence.
When you wake up and look forward to the day, you will feel happier and more confident. I truly believe that the definition of beauty is an internal one. Having the tools at your disposal to create that happiness builds confidence.
Blooming Orchid is definitely a mood booster.
Color cosmetics don’t really address these different skin tones. I love pink pop [Blooming Orchid lipstick] The shade and it brightens my entire face.
Fashion is so expressive, and so is beauty.
Glows in shades of brown always work well with red lips this time of year. I love playing with eyeshadow and even have an eyeliner moment. I love watching up reels.
I feel most empowered when I have a table full of friends and family around me.
Just seeing the faces of people who love you, are proud of you, and are there for you no matter how bad you are, is such a powerful feeling. It’s my greatest strength. Their unconditional love gives me strength.
The Color Me Confident Collection is available now online and in stores.
