Q: When were you introduced to Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant?

I was first introduced to Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant in college when I started to really play with makeup. I heard that it was the best on the market, and once I tried it I was hooked!

Q: Why do you think Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant is so iconic?

Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant is iconic because it delivers. It actually does what it says. It feels smooth and silky on skin, while working its ‘magic’.

Q: How do you use Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant in your own skincare regimen?

My favorite place to apply it is on my lips. I like to apply it before I go to bed since I believe it’s extremely important to keep lips moisturized all year long, especially in the winter and summer when lips get chapped from dryness or from being in the sun.

I also find it especially useful when traveling. I always make sure to put it on before I board and during my flights because the cream locks in moisture and helps to keep you fresh throughout the duration of your trip. Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant works wonders and makes you feel and look well rested. I apply a small dab in between the palms of my hands and rub them gently together to warm the product. I apply wherever I’m the driest. For most people this is around the mouth and laugh lines.

Q: What are some creative ways you’ve used Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant on the runway or for photo shoots?

Using Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant in strategic spots is great for the camera. It’s great to apply it straight down the leg to highlight bone structure and length. It gives legs a really sexy, lengthy look. When applied to the cheekbone area (right at the top of your cheek when you smile) it creates a luminous glow that captures shine and looks great on camera.

Q: What are your top tips/favorite ways to use Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant?

I love to use Eight Hour® Cream on the collar bone. It draws attention to the shoulders and creates a radiant glow.

Q: As a native New Yorker who has traveled the world, in what ways have you seen industry professionals use Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant in other countries?

I think for the most part, professional makeup artists aren’t scared to play around with products. We tend to use a product wherever intuitively we feel it should be used. That’s what makeup artists around the world do—and women who love makeup.

Q: How can Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant be used to create some of this Fall’s beauty trends?

In Fall 2012 we’re going to see a strong lip look. Placing a small dot of Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant in the center of the upper and lower lips gives the lip more dimension and makes the strong color really pop.

If you want the strong lip look, but prefer not to use a heavily saturated color, the Eight Hour® Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15 Sheer Tint in Berry and Plum are perfect for fall. I love how the lip tints offer a pop of sheer color. They have a creamy texture without being too glossy and last a long time.
