“I like knowing about everything. My family refers to me as ‘Meshipedia’. I think it’s important to be well-rounded. Knowing about what’s going on around us makes us more sympathetic to important issues we may otherwise ignore.”
My style is: classic.
People usually compliment my: makeup.
I’ll never forget the time: I got chased by a deranged woman who insisted that I was an African princess.
Worst habit: making funny faces.
For my skin, I use: My Clarisonic brush. It’s amazing, and I feel just a little pampered every time I use it.
My favorite makeup tip: Always apply foundation before concealer. Once the foundation is on, you might realize that you don’t need concealer afterall, or less at least than you would’ve used.
Current beauty product obsession: Avon Glimmersticks Waterproof Eye Liner. It really is waterproof and it glides right on!
But I also can’t live without: L’Oreal Liquid Eyeliner. The brush just works for me, it comes off easily with water, stays on when you want it to and it’s totally inexpensive!
People might be surprised to know: I never went to school for makeup – I actually have a degree in Communications and Advertising. When I’m not a makeup artist (weekend job), I’m a copywriter (weekdays job).
My favorite hair product is: Frederic Fekkai Wave Spray.
I don’t understand people who don’t like: Chocolate. How can you trust a person who doesn’t like chocolate?
The restaurant I can never get tired of is: Roy’s in Chicago. They have this butterfish that is like nothing I’ve ever had before or ever again.
Though I can make a mean: I am an awesome cook. Chinese and Italian – the best!
