Now that you know her name, let's talk about this girl's passion for all things beauty! Tiffany has worked on movie sets, television studios AND a world-renowned film festival. She has been in the industry for 11 years, is full of life, and ready to take on the world one contour at a time!
Charlotte's Little Web: The makeup world is a vast and exciting one. How did you know you wanted to be a part of it?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: I have a Bachelors in Theater so I always knew I wanted to be in the entertainment field. Afrer College I worked on my first Indie Film "A New Wave" with John Krasinski and Lacey Chabert, as a Asst. makeup Artist. I was able to learn so much from the Key Artist, Angela Marinis, and finally look at makeup as a career!
Charlotte's Little Web: That's a nice gig for the start of a career! Are there any other highlights in your career that are special to you?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: Wow--I have so many!
Working Sundance Film Festival with L'Oreal Paris for the first time was epic for me. I had always dreamed of being there as a kid.
I also loved what the festival represented. Being able to be on camera, speaking about beauty, and representing a Brand I'm passionate about was surreal to me. You can work with all the famous faces in the world--or be recognized with awards--but there's something about being able to share your tricks and passion with others that is really moving!
Charlotte's Little Web: Just attending the Sundance Film Festival is a dream of mine. I cannot imagine how amazing it is to be behind the scenes! So cool.
Are there any products you prefer to use on your clients?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: There are so many brands within my kit.
My cult favorites are L'Oreal Paris, Stila Cosmetics and Kiehls. Depending on what I'm working on, or who my client is, I'll experiment with different brands. I'm known for customizing products--basically being my own mixologists. If I can't find it out in the market, I create my own!
Charlotte's Little Web: I love that you create your own makeup cocktails! That's how the best tricks are discovered, I'm sure.
Any particular product that is a must-have?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: Illuminizors--they give life to skin!
Charlotte's Little Web: Nice. I'll have to pick one up!
When it comes to makeup styles, is there any you prefer for your clients or yourself?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: I mean, who doesn't love some contour!? But, I feel no matter what look you prefer, I always make sure it's polished, clean, and my clients skin is never caked-over. There's nothing more I love than a gorgeous glow and healthiness to a look.
My personal style is very simple, defined and I love a great glow to my skin. And, of course, there's always room for contour!
Charlotte's Little Web: Yes, contouring is a miracle-worker. I am forever on YouTube trying to learn it, but there are just some things to be left to the pros!
How do you gain the confidence of your clients when doing major events?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: I celebrate who they are and how they look--flaws and all! I feel you have to place your ego aside and listen to they want.
Charlotte's Little Web: What are common questions they have? Any tips you suggest for them?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: Wrinkles, dark circles, even tone skin... They are always asking how to get rid of them.
My first question for them is about skincare! Let's make sure we target are beauty concerns with a proper regimen and don't look to makeup as the "fix all." I LOVE facial oils and serums because they penetrate down deeper into the skin and are more concentrated.
Take your favorite foundation and mix a serum or oil into it to sheer it out, deliver hydration, and get a smoother finish while evening out the skin. One of my favorite eye creams is Yonka Phyto-Contour. It contains Rosemary to help with puffiness and dark circles.
When it comes to wrinkles, well, I say embrace who you are and always be preventative. Sunscreen is your best ant-aging defense!
Charlotte's Little Web: Yes! My mom chased me around with sunscreen my whole life! And I am definitely thanking her for it now.
Any tricks to maintain the look throughout the night?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: Hydrate, Prime, blot and don't cake on the powder! Too much powder will cause your makeup to cake up. Using a Evian spray throughout the night keeps it fresh and resets the makeup giving a longer lasting effect too.
Charlotte's Little Web: How old were you when you started wearing makeup? Remember any favorite pieces as a young girl?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: I was 13. And definitely mascara! I would sit at my vanity and be so amazed at how it gave me lashes I never knew I had.
Charlotte's LIttle Web: Any advice for teens who are just starting to wear makeup?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: Less is more! Enjoy your young, ageless skin and don't overdo it with tons of makeup. Pick one feature to be expressive with. Wether it's a purple liner or a bright lip color, just have fun with it!
Charlotte's Little Web: A fresh face is the best face, agreed!
Let's talk inspiration. Any makeup artist that you admire? Or celebrity you'd like to get your brushes on?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: Well, if anyone knows me well they know it's Beyoncé! Her beauty and confidence exudes through her and through her makeup! As for makeup artists: Francesca Tolot is my idol! She can transform anyone.
Charlotte's Little Web: I love me some Yoncé too!
And why do you, personally, love makeup?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: It's who I am.
I still feel beautiful wearing no makeup at all, that is the beauty of it. I wear makeup because I want it to express my mood or bring out certain features. It's so fun to be creative and what better canvas than your own.
Charlotte's Little Web: I love that answer! Wearing makeup is an expression, not an identity.
Last but not least: Any final advice for makeup lovers?
Tiffany Hall Beauty: Be true to what you love and who you are. Don't just try a "trend" just because or wear mascara because your friends do. Be your own trendsetter and remember that makeup is to bring out your inner-self, not hide it! Be Beautiful. Be Confident. Be you.
