[Michelle] How old were you--
00:05
[Jeanine] 14.
00:05
[Michelle] when you first started wearing makeup?
00:06
We used to get on the bus in the morning
00:07
and put our makeup on, 'cause my mom
00:09
wouldn't let us wear makeup.
00:12
And I'd put on way too much makeup,
00:15
and your mouth would be glued together, practically.
00:17
(Michelle laughing)
00:18
Do you feel like you've learned anything
00:20
about beauty from your daughters?
00:22
How much pressure there is on them
00:25
to be unauthentic, in a way.
00:27
[Michelle] Yeah.
00:28
Again, I think it comes back to being comfortable
00:30
with yourself.
00:31
Yup.
00:32
Like they don't need to paint somebody else's face on,
00:34
they're good.
00:35
So you're known as the skin person in the industry
00:38
because so many of the celebrities who you work with
00:41
look completely ageless.
00:43
How do you tell them to take care of what's underneath
00:45
the makeup?
00:46
You have to use SPF, you have to use moisturizer,
00:49
you have to exfoliate so it can go in your skin, and
00:52
it's just a good habit, like you brush your teeth,
00:54
you put on your sun protection, you put on your moisturizer,
00:57
it just has to be part of what you do every morning.
01:00
And I often give people products too, I'm like,
01:02
here, this is what you should use.
01:04
How have you managed to maintain those client
01:06
relationships through the years?
01:07
Being real, I'm a very real person, and I tell the truth.
01:11
For me, the sisterhood is really important.
01:15
I've had relationships with people for 15 years.
01:18
I keep doing work because I love what I do.
01:21
Our job is to put some self-confidence
01:23
and put some good in there.
01:25
[Michelle] That's great.
01:26
[Jeanine] Besides just lipstick.
01:27
(Michelle laughs)
01:28
And a little lipstick too.
01:29
And a little lipstick.
