Featured celebrity interview: Robert Pattinson.
It’s no surprise to learn that the biggest challenge Madonna’s makeup artist has when touring the globe with the pop star, is keeping the singer’s makeup on throughout her grueling two hour shows. She rarely stops dancing! Not to mention the fact that Madonna’s false lash change halfway through the concert has to be complete within 90 seconds, under the stage during a brief costume change. What is surprising to learn is how hard Madonna works to ensure her shows are flawless. She actually performs a full rehearsal at 3 pm in every city she performs in, to ensure the performance is perfect — that includes full makeup! Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing celeb makeup artist Gina Brooke (a shu uemura spokesperson) who has designed the makeup for Madonna’s last four concert tours. It is a fascinating behind the scenes interview.
As this is our Bad Girl’s Guide to Beauty issue, we invited our favourite ‘Bad Girl’ makeup artist, MAC’s Caitlin Callahan, to design a brand new bad girl look for spring. It’s edgy and totally fun. So is our interview with the new face of Givenchy Fragrances, Amanda Seyfried. She’s brutally honest in her views on life in Hollywood and what matters in her life. I hope we inspire you to let your inner vixen surface — enjoy the issue.
