|How did you get started working in beauty?
|When I was 15, I got a job at a bagel shop that happened to be right next to a makeup store called Merle Norman. By the time I was 16, I weaseled my way in and got my first job in beauty there!
|Who had the biggest beauty influence on you growing up?
The makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin. Nobody in my family really wore makeup (and YouTube didn’t exist), so I read his makeup books to learn all about it.
