I am thankful for absolutely everything in my life. My family most importantly – my husband who is my biggest supporter and fan and my son Roman who is the light of my life. I am thankful for my parents, my two brothers and all my extended family and friends. I am grateful for my entire tréStiQue team and for the opportunity to pursue my craziest dream which was to create this brand from an idea I had over a decade ago.

I’m most thankful for having such an amazing supportive wife and kids, who are always there for me. Thinking of them makes me full and happy.

I am thankful for my family. My husband and baby make every day an adventure and I am so grateful for their love and endless energy!

Halloween Looks With Makeup Artist Lyndsey Ariel

 

 

We have been working with our Makeup Artist, Lyndsey Ariel, since we launched our brand, so it was a given that we would go to her to find the perfect Halloween looks (and ask her a few questions along the way!)

How long have you been working with tréStiQue?
Since the very beginning. I was at the company’s launch party!  I did quick makeovers and touch ups. It was really fun.

What is your favorite Halloween Makeup to do?
I love doing a Scarecrow! It is simple and cute but still enough not to be basic.

Can you show us how you would do it using only tréStiQue makeup?
Yes!

Do all of your friends make you do their makeup for Halloween?
Actually they don’t! But they definitely do when we are just going out on a normal night. That happens ALL THE TIME. They always try to sneak it in. It always starts with “can you help me with my eyelashes…”

Do you know what you are dressing up as this year?
I don’t know yet. This is first year I don’t know, but I am really leaning toward Ursula from The Little Mermaid. The only reason I wouldn’t do it is because I have to go fully purple if I do. I’m not sure you can ever go fully purple!

Can you help us with one other Halloween look that is easy to do with just tréStiQue makeup?
Of course! I would stick with a cheetah. It’s always a great option.

Thank you to the always wonderful Lyndsey Ariel for the Halloween inspiration. You better believe we will be sharing her final Halloween look if she decides to go full purple!

You can shop all the products in her looks on our website!

Beauty On The Go W/ Deepica Mutyala

 

Over the past two years (since we launched our brand) we have become minorly (ok, majorly) obsessed with Deepica Mutyala. She is a hard-working, beautiful and fun #femtrepreneur and loves makeup just as much as we do!  She believes that just because you are a busy woman on-the-go, that doesn’t mean you need to compromise your look.

This week we shot an amazing campaign with Deepica for some of our new products (details coming soon!) as well as filmed her doing her makeup with our Essential 8 Set riding in the back of a car. Here are a few sneak peak pics of her “after” look…

We also sat down with Deepica to ask her a few questions about makeup, her new life in LA and always being on the go!

The taxi/uber you are in gets stuck in standstill traffic, do you stay in the taxi and wait it out, get out and jump on the subway or get out of the car and walk the rest of the way?
I would definitely stay in the car, but I would use the time to check emails, do makeup and take some calls.

Will you show us your signature back of the car/taxi selfie pose?
I always try to take a car selfie when I have good light. And I love the angle of a good head tilt. 

You recently moved from NY to LA. What’s the best new thing about your new LA lifestyle?
I feel zen. To me, LA feels like NY meets Texas. I feel the calmness of Texas (where I grew up) but the work hustle of NY.

What do you already miss about NY the most?
There is better food here. Not healthier, but better. But I think I need some more time to answer that because I am still on a LA high. I worked in NY really hard for five years and just needed a change.

Has your makeup choices changed since you have been in LA?
In NY my makeup was always done on the go and quick and easy. I feel like I get a little more glam in LA. Since I drive in LA, I find myself getting ready before I get in the car and so I spend a little more time on it. In LA, I have been keeping my eyes and lips neutral and focusing more on my skin. I have been doing a lot of sun-kissed, dewy and bronzed cheeks.

If you could tell your 21-year-old self something, what would it be?
Keep grinding. Hustle harder. You came here for a reason.

Ok, now it’s time for a speed round. Ready?

Yes. Let’s do it!

A big thank you to Deepica for being her awesome self…we can’t wait until your next trip back to NYC!
