Hey Ely! ✨
You’re an in-store skincare and make-up expert. What got you passionate about beauty?
When I was ten, I wasn’t allowed to buy make-up so I used small amounts of acrylic paint on my lips, eyes, and so on. I’d also sneak it to my friends in the bus. Eventually I grew up to be a make-up artist. I worked for such brands as Make Up For Ever, Burberry, Chanel, and Givenchy
Granted, the products I use have slightly changed since then ?
I bet! Which contemporary line would you suggest?
I’m smitten with Kosas, an eco-friendly brand I discovered in the store. I’m an unconditional fan of their tinted oil, a deeply radiant foundation.
I also can’t resist REN’s day serum. It’s a gently exfoliating enzymatic scrub…
Enzymatic peeling? Now we’re getting technical
Damn right. Whatever it takes to get that glow ?
What’s your secret for a perfect selfie?
It’s all about the lighting. Do some location scouting in the sunshine and strike a natural pose wearing super smooth make-up
When it comes to mirror shots, architecture is paramount
We must mention your outfit! Where’s it from?
The mules are from Gray Matters. Their heels are amazing, just like jewellery
And my dress is a SS19 piece from Italian designer Sara Battaglia. I love the cut, but most of all … it’s white!
That’s a thing, is it?
I believe white is the most beautiful colour in the world. It can be soft, or cool, or pure… I often wear #allwhiteeverything
Does that make you the store’s angel?
Yes, but a black angel like Rihanna!
Is she a big inspiration?
200 percent. She’s a strong woman who doesn’t care about anyone’s judgement and accepts herself just the way she is. That’s something I share. Nobody can tell her what to do, and that’s exactly what I want to convey through my beauty tips
What’s your must-have accessory?
No doubt, this little Gucci handbag. A real beauty
Thank you, Audrey! And a last question: your karaoke song?
Rihanna, obvs. Thank you, Audrey!
See you soon Ely! ?
