Meet Emma Willis, our head makeup artist!
HOMETOWN: London, England. Now...West Hollywood!
FIRST MAKEUP MEMORY: Adding way too much blush and lippy to my 4 sisters when we put on shows for the family many moons ago....ahhh, good memories!
FAVE BLUSHINGTON LOOK: A mix between Pure & Simple and Simply Glowing
WHAT'S IN MY MAKEUP BAG: Nivea moisturizer for nighttime, but day to day I use Embryolisse. It leaves a light veil of moisture and sits perfectly under makeup! Becca's Loose Powder in Mocha - I only dust really shiny areas, since dewy skin is always best! Julie Hewett creamy OMIT 1 and 2 concealers. (I mix them together or wear alone, depending on my skin colour and condition.) Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Blush in Patrice for rosy cheeks, and Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara. I mix my own lippy - Elizabeth Arden Eight hour Cream with a small bit of Illamasqua's Intense Lipgloss in Follow. When those are mixed together, it gives me that just-pinched lip look I can't live without!
IN HEAVY ROTATION ON MY iPOD: Paulo Nutini, The Script, Kings of Leon, James Morrison, UB40 and the Dirty Dancing sound track!
3 THINGS I COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT: My hubby Graham and our kids, Rocky & Narla.....well, they're actually cats, but it's like having children with those two!
1 THING NONE OF MY CO-WORKERS KNOW ABOUT ME: White feathers tend to follow me around, so I designed a tattoo of a feather with the script, "Angels of Grace Defend Us" (from Hamlet) and "Aim High and Stand Strong," which is my own little motto in life, on either side of it. The tattoo is on the back of my neck.
BEAUTY MOTTO: Smile
FAVE LA HAUNT: The garden at Chateau Marmont
RECEIPE FOR DE-STRESSING: Hiking up Runyon Canyon with my best buddies in the sun! And remembering what my Dad says often when he's had one too many: "Will it matter in 100 years time?" That always makes me smile!
