How did you get your start in the business?
I remember when I was a child, my mother took me to the Botanical Garden. I was amazed by the color of the orchids. She told me that they were little girls waiting for someone to bring them to life. When I grew up, I thought it would be remarkable to recreate those colors on a woman. When I moved to America, I started working behind the counter at Lancôme because the BA’s working there reminded me of those beautiful flowers.
What is your creative influence?
I've had the opportunity to travel to many countries, and have learned about different cultures. Having an open mind creates images with colors that inspire my creativity. My hands allow me to express all I have learned on my journeys.
Who is your beauty icon?
Sophia Loren. For me, she represents the femininity and sophistication of every woman.
What works on every woman?
Finding a style and adapting it to yourself, not vice versa. Beauty is the confidence that radiates from within; it's reflected in your eyes.
What is your best tip?
Neutral, natural-looking lips are so alluring. When you're in a rush, simply fill-in lips with a neutral lip pencil, smooth on clear gloss, and you're ready to go.
- Beautiful makeup starts with a good skin care routine. That is why I love Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate; it will give you younger, brighter-looking skin in just 7 days. Your skin will feel velvety to the touch so you only need a minimum amount of foundation.
- Eyes are the window to the soul, which is why I recommend Artliner in Noir and Hypnôse Drama Mascara to create captivating eyes instantly.
- I love La Laque Fever Gloss in Lucent Nude. It's the perfect glossy nude color no woman should be without.
- I really recommend Trésor In Love. It's definitely a must-have! The notes of Nectarine, Pear and Bergamot will make you feel even more feminine.
