Q: Which shows have been your most creative looks?

A: I enjoyed doing the looks for Crafess collection. There was a fun Miley Cyrus feel to the look. We added very bold brows for the models.  The Jeehyun Lee collection was fun creating the silver, gold metallic looks and I enjoyed doing the make-up for Priscilia Canivet and La Selle College – they had very romantic looks, with soft, naked eyes.

Q: How many styles/looks are you creating in 1 hour?

A: We get 20 minutes per model, so about 3 models per hour, but we do as many as possible.

Q: Fall tips and trends that for fall 2014?

A:  The 90s, with spiced lips in brown tone lip colors.  Also, deep purple and red lips are in. We are seeing a lot of vampy eyes, which is a bare eye, with a defined crease on the eyelid.  Matte skin is fresh for fall, with no shimmer and nothing heavy looking on the skin. Everyone is also loving the Kim Kardashian face contouring and perfect brows.
