BC: Which celebrity do you most admire, makeup-wise? Who do you think always looks dynamite, no matter what they’ve got on, and why?
TM: I think Jennifer Lopez always looks amazing. Her skin is absolutely flawless—beautiful. I love her style, too. Another one that stands out is Angelina Jolie.
BC: Do you have a favorite UltraPure product? What is it and why?
TM: Hmm… That’s a tough one to answer. There are so many I love! I can’t pick just one!
BC: What are your best makeup secrets? Got any tips to share?
TM: Plenty! For eyes: I love using Blanc Eye Liner to wake up tired eyes, or to make them stand out. This works especially well for green or blue eyes.
Blush: Many women don’t put it on every day, but it really makes a huge difference and creates a youthful glow. I like to contour with a bronzer and highlight with a great color like Neutral Pink—it’s terrific for almost all skin tones.
Concealer: We have one of the best! Nothing makes you look older than dark circles. Apply concealer sparingly under your eyes to combat them; and as a bonus, you can use it on your lids as a primer for eye shadow.
For a flawless finish, I can’t say enough about our Hydra-Peptide Infusion Spray. Use it sparingly after applying your makeup and your skin instantly looks hydrated and flawless.
BC: What inspires you?
TM: Everything. I keep my eyes open, and I’m always looking for new trends. I try to find out what people are looking for, and then I try to fill that need. Right now, (shhhh!) we’re working on a liquid mineral foundation
BC: If you could have any celebrity, living or dead, use UltraPure Cosmetics, who would it be and why?
TM: I would have to say JLo again. She isn’t 20 anymore, but she still looks amazing. Confidence is the sexiest thing of all!
