If you could collaborate with anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why? Tough call, there are a lot of people I'd love to collaborate with! I'd love to work with Cate Blanchett, I think she’s one of the only real movie stars we have left. Having the pleasure to have met her recently, I can say that her magnetism extends off of the screen into real life.
How did you break into your industry? I had a lot of little breaks, but a big one is when I worked with Iman for the filming of the Canadian version of Project Runway. I was suggested to her by Jay Manuel and she took a chance on me, and ended up helping me get my U.S. work Visa.
What project are you the most proud of? Whichever one I finished last, and then I’m onto the next.
Advice for anyone trying to break into the industry? Take risks, ask for what you want. Nobody is out there trying to hand you shit, you have to make things happen and take what you want.
Shout out to someone who has been your biggest supporter. I have so many supportive members on my team and in my family. Impossible to name just one.
What’s the best advice someone gave you? Reach for the best feeling thought you can possibly have, at any given moment. When that finally sunk in, it changed everything.
Favorite makeup reference from a movie? The Jungle Red reference from The Women is pretty killer.
Instagram account you love? @patmcgrathreal is always inspirational
If you could collaborate with anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why? Charlize Theron - for me she has been an icon of style, class and beauty for as long as I can remember. It would definitely be her.
How did you break into your industry? There was one well-known makeup artist who took me under their wing and believed in me. Her name is Frances Hathaway. She took me as her main assistant and the rest was just hard work and little bit of luck.
What project are you the most proud of? There isn’t a particular one I could name but I am proud of the fact that I have been able to be part of so many. I would say incredible editorials, advertising projects and memorable red carpet moments.
Advice for anyone trying to break into the industry? Work hard, be patient and respectful, always be aware of your surroundings and your place on set or any work situation. Don’t ever stop dreaming and stay positive!
Shout out to someone who has been your biggest supporter. My agent Leela Veeravalli, my friends and clients Anja Rubik, Martha Hunt, Nicola Peltz, Barbara Palvin, Luigi and Iango, and David Roemer.
What’s the best advice someone gave you? Don’t believe everything on Instagram! :)
Favorite movie? Many, but more recently Call Me By Your Name with Timothee Chalemet and Armie Hammer.

If you could collaborate with anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why? Well it wouldn’t be about the beauty or fashion industry. I would want to work for/collaborate with Gandhi because of his life story...people use him as a moral compass, and he has proven that peace and love do a lot more than violence.
How did you break into your industry? Literally been in NYC industry from beginning (landed in '92) but my real break didn’t happen until Vogue did a piece on me in 2002.
What project are you the most proud of? Hands down, creating beautifully crafted hair tools.
Advice for anyone trying to break into the industry? Move to LA or NYC. Start there at the bottom.
Shout out to someone who has been your biggest supporter. Fellow stylists.
What’s the best advice someone gave you? Do what you do best and make that your thing.

If you could collaborate with anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why? Irving Penn, because he was a true master of his craft.
Advice for anyone trying to break into the industry? Work tirelessly, never say no, and know your history.
Shout out to someone who has been your biggest supporter. My mom, Melanie, for pushing me to always find a way to achieve what I want. And my boyfriend, Will: from carrying wardrobe trunks up and down stairs at ungodly hours, to reminding me that everything is going to work out, and for always keeping a smile on my face.
Favorite movie? Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette or Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet.
