Hey, love. I attempted a product review with some face shots this afternoon, but to be honest, I just wasn’t feelin’ it. Instead I thought you might enjoy this phone interview I recently did with actress and Neutrogena spokesperson Emma Roberts and celebrity makeup artist Amy Oresman.
You might recognize Emma from the TV show Unfabulous or the movies It’s Kind of a Funny Story and Celeste & Jesse Forever. Oh, yeah, she’s also Julia Roberts’ niece!
And makeup artist Amy Oresman has beautified a bunch of big name stars like Heidi Klum, Madonna and Victoria Beckham.
Both gals were sweet as pie and had some interesting beauty tips to share. I hope you enjoy.
KAREN: So, Emma, your everyday makeup routine — what’s it like? Are you a beauty minimalist, or do you like to go all out?
EMMA: I really feel like less is more. I feel like, day to day, I want to look like myself, and I want to feel like myself, and not do too much, or worry all day long about fixing my makeup, because that’s, like, the worst feeling. And especially because it’s summer, I like to keep it light.
I use Healthy Lengths Mascara. It’s amazing! You can wear it all day without having to worry about it flaking.
And I use the Moisture Smooth Color Sticks. Those are great because they’re really moisturizing but also give you a little bit of color, and it looks totally natural. That’s kind of my thing. [SIDE NOTE: Emma’s favorite shade is Sweet Watermelon; she carries it around in her purse.]
Of course, SPF. Other than that, I’m pretty simple.
KAREN: What beauty products do you absolutely love, like, you’d totally freak out if they were discontinued?
EMMA: I hate it when things are discontinued! That’s the worst!
Um…Healthy Lengths Mascara. I’d be really upset if they ever discontinued it. I use it in black, and brown, and it’s amazing.
I always have a red nail polish on my nails, so if they ever discontinued the red nail polish I wear from OPI I’d be really upset.
KAREN:Do you remember the color?
EMMA: I don’t. I’m the worst [laughs]. But I need red nail polish. I love it.
KAREN: Me too. It’s classic! You can never go wrong with red.
EMMA: Now I’m looking at my nails and thinking I need to get them done. The red’s chipping off!
