Foundation (brands and shades): I wear YSL Perfect Touch foundation in color #12. I wear Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation in # 12.5. I wear Creme de La mer The Treatment Fluid Foundation in #8. I usually wear that around the eye area to lighten & brighten. When feeling like I want a little bit more of a fabulous of a look, I rely on foundation sticks. I use Black Opal in Heavenly Honey, Beautiful Bronze & Black Walnut. I also swear by a Benefit playstick in their darkest color which is still really light, but an amazing eye brightener.

1. What are some of your favorite makeup products? I have been known to be a mascara whore. I am obsessed with drugstore brands, as well as luxury ones. I cant get enough. At any time, I have two - three types of mascara in each handbag! 2. How long have you been in love with makeup? I was a little girl in my attic stockpiling Vogue, Marie Claire, Harpers Baazar. I read it like the gospel, and skipped many a homework assignment. It was love at first sight!

3. What products/brands are you dying to try? I have worked as a makeup artist for the last 11 years, so I have tried so much. The only thing I cant wait for is Sam Fine's upcoming makeup line.

4. What's your everyday makeup look? Less is more to me. I love a refined, classic, pretty kind of look. Think Sanaa Lathan mixed with Kerry Washington kinda pretty. When im feeling edgy, I throw in some Rihanna rockstar elements. I'm all about skin, skin, skin!

5. Who are your makeup role models? My first was Kevyn Aucoin. He was everything to me, as a teenager. I own all of his books
