How do you feel to be the newest brand ambassador for MAC Cosmetics?
I’m a huge fan of MAC and have been a loyal user for a long time, so it’s really a dream come true to have the opportunity to serve as an ambassador for the brand.
MAC is truly at the forefront of trendsetting, which reminds me every time I see a MAC campaign or the incredible looks their artists create backstage at fashion weeks around the world. It’s an honor to partner with [a] brand with such an incredible heritage and unrivaled expertise in [the] makeup artistry. I am thrilled and looking forward to this journey!
What was your first ever MAC product?
The first MAC product I used was a lip product. I’m still a huge fan of MAC’s lip products and love playing around with the countless number of colors and textures to choose from to help perfect my look.
When did you realize your love for makeup? What about it do you love?
Since I was a little girl, I have always been interested in makeup and fashion. But if I had to say the time I officially fell in love with makeup, I would say that was after my debut. When we release a new album or when I’m on set for a magazine, I enjoy suggesting a makeup look that I’ve always wanted to try.
Any beauty routine/regimen you want to share?
I usually enjoy natural makeup. I like to start with a simple base and finish with a slightly bolder lip color to add some vibrance. Especially for lip makeup, I like to make an ombre lip that naturally gradates by tapping from the center of my lips!
Where do you get your color makeup inspiration?
I constantly review various [shoots], I like suggesting makeup styles that I have been eager to try. I enjoy working together with the makeup artist to finalize my look through different attempts to eventually [suit] the mood I am trying to express in the shoot.
