You're kind of our short-hair mascot right now. Do you have any tips or advice for girls thinking about going short?
"I've loved having short hair. My advice is that if you have long hair and you're thinking of cutting it short, stick with it for a while. Don't just cut it and get scared and grow it out again. That's the fun part about short hair — you can get it cut every few weeks, you can change it. You can go three inches shorter and, then it can grow another three inches. You can just play around — get layers in the front, layers in the back. Just have it short for like a year or two and just see what you can do with it in that time."
A lot of women with short hair complain that they don't have a lot of styling options. How do you style your hair to switch things up?
"My hair is quite wavy, but not curly, so it's pretty easy to make it either straight or curly. I don't like to spend a lot of time doing anything, so I put a little mousse in — because my hair is fine and silky, at the end of the day it just flops around if I haven't put anything in it. I like volumizing mousse or volumizing spray. Dry shampoo is also great because it volumizes and texturizes."
"I like Bumble and bumble
products. They're so good and they smell really nice. The hairspray brushes out and it's not sticky. Hairspray can be sticky and that's never good for my hair."
As someone who spends a good portion of her life in the makeup chair getting primped, have you picked up any beauty tips from the pros that you thought were genius?
"Just this morning I picked up a really good one: When you are putting foundation on, mix it with a little bit of Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair
. Just put a little bit on the back of your hand and mix your foundation with that. Apparently it 'volumizes' the foundation, and you end up not using quite as much foundation, so it won't look cakey."
We can't not talk about your brows — they are just so striking. Any great brow-taming tips?
"If you have thick brows, people tend not to do anything with them — which is great. I'm not saying pluck them, but, I actually fill my brows in sometimes even though they are really thick because you can get gaps. So, my best tip is just to fill them in— not making them bigger or darker, just filling them in — and making sure you don't lose the end of it. Usually when you're doing your makeup, you are facing a mirror, so you don't see the sides of your face. So, just remember to turn your head and fill in that little bit at the ends, so you don't lose them."
What kind of products do you use on them?
"I like a compact powder with an angled brush. It's a small brush and it's angled and it's just perfect for eyebrows."
