Painting Faces And Trailblazing Spaces. Brigitte Reiss-Andersen is a legend in the beauty industry. If you’re a fan of fashion editorial spreads and covers from the 80s and 90s, this podcast is a must-listen. Brigitte shares 30 years of stories and details from her vast body of work as a makeup artist, from on-location shoots with the world’s top photographers to her red carpet work with 27 Oscar winning actors including long-time client, Michelle Pfeiffer. You’ll hear how she got her start in Paris working for Yves Saint Laurent (himself), and how a certain experience with a photographer taught her to be a better artist. She explains how the industry has changed over the years, and gives skincare tips for travel (and if anyone knows how to keep skin in great shape while traveling, it’s Brigitte). On this podcast you'll listen in on tales from the fashion industry front lines, from someone who has had a huge hand in defining beauty over the last three decades.

"You have to work with the photographer to find the best lighting and make it perfect. That's how you learn. You can't just do one kind of makeup." - Brigitte Reiss-Andersen

"The tremendous change is that your status as a makeup artist is no longer based on your talent, it's based on how many followers you have. We went from being the backstage people and suddenly the spotlight  was on us." - Brigitte Reiss-Andersen
