"I first started to play with makeup when I was about 6 years old. We lived in New Zealand, and then we came to England and stayed at my grandmother’s house, I found a box of makeup which was my mum’s. So I grew up with all this ‘60s makeup from Mary Quant and Coty. I wasn’t really interested in putting it on my own face. I was just interested in the objects, and I loved the color and texture.
When I was about 13, I got a book of theatrical makeup for my birthday. I was like, ‘Wow, you can do this as a career.’ I remember saying to the careers person at school. ‘Do I really need to do math? Because I’m going to be a makeup artist.’ Now it’s a known career, but back then it was a weird thing to want to do.
It was a slow process. I did a lot of testing. You’d go on a shoot at 7am on the Isle of Dogs and the pictures wouldn’t even turn out! I was working in an architect’s office, and there was a studio across the road. I knocked one day and said to the assistant, ‘If you want to test, I’m a makeup artist.’ Eventually I went to Milan and did three tests a day. It was a really big learning curve. Then I did a bit of assisting backstage with makeup artists like Mary Greenwell and Linda Cantello. I only did one season of assisting, and then I started doing makeup on my own and got an agent after that.
I had a set philosophy about makeup from the beginning that’s never really changed. I love faces. When I’m out and about, I’m looking at people all the time and see so much detail. Every face is gorgeous. I don’t see the negatives. I think, ‘What about these amazing eyes or this beautiful bone structure?’ I still feel excited about that now, 20 years later.
ON HER WEB PRESENCE
I think I was one of the first makeup artists to have a stand-alone dot com. That was about 15 years ago. Then I did a TV show in the UK called 10 Years Younger. It was really popular, and whenever I’d do the show, I’d get thousands and thousands of hits on the website. People started writing in, emailing my agency. They’d be like, ‘I really want to look nice for my daughter’s wedding because this has happened to me, and that’s happened to me,’ and I was like, ‘Ahh I need to help these people, what can I do?’
In 2008 or so, I was reading all the beauty blogs and looking on beauty forums, and I saw that there was a lot of stuff on YouTube. I thought, ‘This is so interesting because these girls are consumers.’ I can shoot a big glossy campaign and a brand can say, ‘This mascara makes your lashes look 10 times longer,’ but then these girls can go on YouTube and say, ‘Well I tried it, and it didn’t work for me.’ To me, that was the biggest thing that’s happened in beauty, and I was really excited about the change.
The first video I did was Morning After Makeup. I was out the night before until all hours, and I had the worst breakout in the morning! I said to my husband, ‘I’m going to do my first video today,’ and he was like, ‘Are you sure? You look really rough, babe!’ But there was no point in me going on there and putting makeup on and not looking any different. I was so nervous because I had a lot of celebrity clients and people thought YouTube was really naff, but I just believed in it.
My favorite one is probably the Meeting The Ex video. I did a job with a Victoria’s Secret model, and she just went on and on about this boyfriend who finished with her. We planned everything for her—her hair, makeup, what she was going to wear, what she was going to say. She said, ‘You should do a video about this!’ I thought, ‘I am going to do that because if she’s a Victoria’s Secret model, what hope is there for the rest of us?’ And the thing is—I don’t make videos for makeup artists. I make them for the average woman who likes makeup and who’s interested in makeup. Women should be able to choose the look they want. I like quite pared-back looks, but I’m not going to criticize someone who likes to wear false eyelashes and lipstick every day. It’s a woman’s right. The fact that she can even do that when you look at history is great. I’m now just like, ‘Isn’t it just great that we’ve got a bloody choice? Because for the longest period in history, women have been told what to do.’
WHAT ELSE SHE'S WORKING ON
I started my vintage collection of makeup in 1990. I love the stories that makeup can tell. I’ve got stuff which ranges from the Northern Song Dynasty in China over a thousand years ago to modern day classics. I’ve got a lipstick in the exact shade that Jackie O wore! When I put rouge onto someone’s face, I now understand that there’s a 40,000-year history of rouge or a 2,000-year history of eye shadow. Part of having that knowledge is because every spare minute really for the last two years have been spent on writing my book about the history of makeup. [ed note: coming out in October 2015] Every weekend or time off there was something to do—something to research, some museum to go and see, some a picture to find. Even now, I have to read it again to do my final edits, and we have to check all the proofs of photography. It’s given me a lot of respect for people who write books because I’m not a writer.
I also love working with the labs to see where makeup is going next. I’ve been lucky to work as creative director for makeup at Shiseido, Boots, and now Lancôme. I’m a bit of a geek! When I talk to the head of L’Oréal Luxe Labs, I’m like, ‘Can we combine a non-volatile and a volatile silicone and an emulsion in this formula?’ I’m interested in the science, trends, and history as much as I am going on a shoot and being like, ‘a fabulous pink lip today!’
I gear my routine around what I look like that morning, so I don’t have a set thing. If I’m puffy, I like to use something that is cold, so I might use some eye patches left in the fridge. But if I wake up and I look great, I just use a face wash and put moisturizer on. I use Glo Therapeutics Hydrating Gel Cleanser with lactic acid. I’ve got really annoying acne-prone skin that can break out, but it can also get dehydrated. My skin’s what I call a ‘lazy’ exfoliator, so I need to exfoliate but in a very gentle way. I like to use a moisturizer that’s got a bit of sun protection, but at the moment, I’ve been using Eve Lom Brightening Cream. Whenever I go shopping, I’m constantly buying sunblocks that don’t make your face white. I’ve got a Murad one that I’ve been using a lot—the Essential-C Day Moisturizer SPF 30. And there’s an amazing one from Lancôme called Absolue UV Precious Cells, but they only sell it in Asia. I couldn’t go on holiday without the Institut Esthederm range. I love sunblocks that aren’t oily, I love exfoliators that are not scrubby, and I love sheet masks. I shop for those three things all the time. My favorite non-Asian sheet mask is the Sarah Chapman 3D Moisture Infusion. It plumps up the skin amazingly well.
Oh, don’t get me started on my evening routine! If I’ve been wearing makeup during the day, I’ll do two cleanses. I use the Eve Lom Cleanser, which suits me really well. People get upset because it’s got mineral oil in it. It’s absolutely fine for me, and I think that there’s so much scare-mongering about different grades of mineral oil. I do one basic, normal cleanse to take all the makeup off. Once I’ve done that, I go in with Bioderma. And then, I do a second cleanse, which is like a facial massage. I’ll do that for a while if I can—I like massaging my face. Then I use serums. I’ve got one I like at the moment—this Active Marine Power Concentrate by 001 Skincare. I never use thick creams at night because I always think they’re going to break me out, and I get scared, but I’ll always use the SK-II Essential Power Eye Cream. During the day, I try to use one that’s got a bit of caffeine in it if I need to de-puff. Before I get into bed, I always put loads of hand cream on and body lotion on. At the moment, I’m loving the Seams Hand Cream. For body, I’ve got a really nice one which I like, but it doesn’t smell too good. It’s by Sunday Riley—the Juno Body—but it’s really good for your skin, so I’ll use that when my husband is away!
I’ve got loads of makeup on today! I’ve got Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Fluid Foundation, Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer in SC 3, Suqqu Balancing Eyebrow powder in 01 Moss Green. I’ve got this Maquillage blusher which is a brand owned by Shiseido, but it’s only available in Japan—it’s the Shiseido Japan Maquillage Dramatic Mood Veil Cheek Color Blush Palette in PK-200. My lips are Lancôme Shine Lover in 212 Twisted Beige. It’s like a lip balm, but it’s got nude color on it. It’s an everyday color. I usually use nude colors during the day. This eye shadow is discontinued, but Lancôme has one which is called the Hypnôse Doll Eyes Palette in Taupe Au Naturel, which is brilliant because it’s got all the colors that I like. The other one I like is Dior Rosy Nude 534 Eye Shadow Palette [ed note: discontinued]. If I’m working on a job, I don’t really wear much makeup at all. So I’ll just use a bit of concealer, curl my eyelashes, and put mascara on.
My hair used to be really dark, and now I’ve been having it colored a bit lighter, so I have to really look after it. I’m obsessed with this thing called 3’’’ More Inches by Michael Van Clarke. I use it three times a week. You put loads on, and you sleep it in, and you wash your hair the next morning. It says it allows your hair to grow three more inches, and I think it actually works! I get my hair colored by Sally Northwood and my hair cut by George Northwood. The other thing that I swear by is Pureology Perfect 4 Platinum Miracle Filler Treatment. That is amazing. It’s completely changed the texture of my hair. I also love Phyto 9 Daily Ultra Nourishing Cream, which is like a styling cream. I’ve used it for 20 years.
I go to the Fern Skin Clinic Belsize Park in London for facials. They’re really good. I’m really fussy about facials. They were the ones that got me into Glo Therapeutics. It’s nice because they don’t do prescriptive facials. You go in and you’re like, ‘Actually I’m doing something special tonight so don’t do any squeezing, do more massage.’ I always have salicylic or lactic acid peels—that and a massage. Whenever I’ve tried anything else other than that, I’ve had major issues. It took me two years to get back from a bad chemical peel. Whenever I go to Asia, I get facial massage. It’s so painful, but it’s so brilliant. They push all the muscles, and you feel like crying, but it’s good! I had it done in Japan last week—I had it done the day I got there—and I didn’t have jet-lag face at all!"

Demi published a letter on Twilonger calling out a tattoo artist who posted angry comments on Instagram calling Demi a drunken slob after Demi said a tattoo the artist had drawn on her looked like a vagina.
Dear Ashley McMullen, I wasn't going to acknowledge your bitter Instagram comments but since your side of the story has picked up some headlines, I would like to share my thoughts and send you a proper apology. First, I would like to say I'm really sorry I don't remember you or getting tattooed by you, but as you know I was fucked up and sometimes people act like "#turds" when they're loaded. Second, I apologize for my "#peepeetoiletseat"... That wasn't on purpose, I was simply a drunken teenage girl. Lastly, I apologize for making fun of your work.. But... if I were you, I wouldn't claim that one because it looked more like an open vagina (or even a butt hole as my 8 year old little sister called it at the time.) I also wouldn't be admitting to the fact that you tattooed a very intoxicated 18 year old on a tour bus without the proper judgement that most legit tattoo artists have of saying "Hmm... This underage kid is wasted, maybe I shouldn't permanently ink a hot pink kiss mark on this girl's wrist....? Oh well... Fuck it, she's famous." I can't blame you for getting the tattoo, I take full responsibility for that but if the issue here is you wanting credit, maybe next time you should wait for the person to get your tattoo sober so they would actually remember getting the tattoo in the first place, or perhaps you could've thought about all of this as a blessing that I forgot everything about you - that was until you outted yourself for the now internationally infamous "vagina tattoo." But you're right, I should give credit where credit is due, and you Ashley, surely deserve credit for this one. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻😂😂😂 #justputitonmytab
Sorry Mods, I know my other post will be rejected because it's EW. Didn't realize they were banned and I don't do the Twitter.
Tonight's episode was so rough I'm genuinely upset. Too much rape describing happening
With a heavy heart, I've decided to shut down Secret, wind-down the company, and return the remaining money. https://t.co/HZUCMe3xFu— David Byttow (@davidbyttow) April 29, 2015
Founder David Byttow wrote in a post titled Sunset on Medium:
"This has been the hardest decision of my life and one that saddens me deeply. Unfortunately, Secret does not represent the vision I had when starting the company, so I believe it’s the right decision for myself, our investors and our team.
"I believe in honest, open communication and creative expression, and anonymity is a great device to achieve it. But it’s also the ultimate double-edged sword, which must be wielded with great respect and care. I look forward to seeing what others in this space do over time."

Furstenberg has issued a statement by saying "I admire Bruce Jenner's strength, courage and honest and have so much respect [for] him using his voice to speak for people who have none. I wish him nothing but a lifetime of happiness."
So proud and honored to introduce my new ultimate icon: Donatella Versace...

BE THAT REGULAR 22 YEAR OLD WHO LOVES A GIRL NAMED PERRIE YAS BITCH
Vince Gilligan did an AMA for Reddit today. Here are a few of his answers.
On people rooting for Walter White: "I’m certainly glad viewers did connect with Walter White. In the early days of the series -- when I was at my most foolish -- I deliberately tried to make Walter White so unlikeable that his behavior would shed viewers. In hindsight, I think that was extraordinarily dumb of me, but I have to admit that by the end of the series, I myself did not have a whole lot of sympathy for Walter White. For me, he had gotten too dark to empathize with, which is not to say viewers should all feel the same way I do. I’m glad viewers still rooted for him up till the end and wanted him to live. Hell, even my mom did! And if you knew her, you’d be pretty shocked she would root for a guy like that. I think Walter White was smart, active, willful -- and that’s what we look for in our heroes. The fact that he was engaged in some pretty heinous criminal behavior might have been a bit beside the point. He nonetheless had many other qualities that we deem heroic in fiction. Maybe that’s why people stuck with him. Certainly people stuck with Walter White because he was played by the astoundingly talented Bryan Cranston, who remains constantly watchable no matter what character he is playing."
On Aaron Paul:"Aaron Paul very much fit the bill of my interpretation of Jesse Pinkman from the get-go. Otherwise we wouldn't have hired him. But having said that, a great deal of Aaron's personality and goodness then became a part of the character of Jesse Pinkman as the show progressed. In other words - we the writers were inspired by Aaron's specific qualities as a human being, and we incorporated many of those qualities into the character of Jesse Pinkman. And we did this with all of the other actors as well - from Bryan Cranston on down. It's a wonderful thing about television - that you can do that. You're telling one story for so long that you have the time to adjust the story, over many episodes and many seasons, as you learn more about your actors. No other medium allows for that. For instance, when you're writing a movie, the script has to be completely finished before production starts, and there's no chance to make those changes as the shooting continues."
On throwing pizza on Walter's house: "I never anticipated that the pizza-throwing scene would be one of the “non-submergible" moments of Breaking Bad. None of us did. It seemed like a fun thing to include in the episode at the time, but none of the writers of the series thought it would take on a life of its own. Thank you for asking that question, because it once again gives me the opportunity to say: for any of the folks who wanted to throw pizza on the roof of the White house, it’s very unfair to the sweet lady that lives there. Please, please do NOT do it. If you want the photo of a pizza on the White house roof: Photoshop it!!! That’s the way to do it in this day in age. You can have any size pizza, and it won’t risk this very sweet lady breaking her back getting her ladder out and climbing up to clean pizza off her roof."
On Chuck in 'Better Call Saul':"Believe it or not, the idea of Chuck being the “bad guy” was a late addition to Season 1. We were probably working on episode 7 when the idea dawned on us that Chuck had been the reason Jimmy had never moved forward at HHM. When that idea dawned on Peter Gould and I, along with our writers, we got very excited. But back to an earlier answer, this points out one of the things I love most about writing for TV. There are enough episodes and enough lead time (if you’re lucky) for writers to change the direction of a story midstream. We took advantage of that in Season 1 of Better Call Saul, and in the past for Breaking Bad. It’s a great creative opportunity to have at one’s disposal."
