1. What’s your number 1 Illamasqua product and why? 

I absolutely love your Precision Gel Liner it is smooth, easy to apply and stays on all day long with out smudging or running.

2. If you could create a look with purely Illamasqua products what would you choose?

I would definitely do eyes with all Illamasqua products. From eye shadow base to lashes as you have some amazing pigmented eye shadows.

3. Make-up aside, what do you do to take care of hair, skin and body?

I do a full ritual for my skin. As a makeup artist who wears tons of makeup on daily basis, it is vital I take care of my skin. I wash my face morning and night. I exfoliate 2/3 times a week. I use a daily moisturizer with SPF and a night cream. And I have been using an eye-cream since I was in my early 20s. (All products with anti-aging Agents)
