We got the chance to catch up with professional make-up artist and rad Goldsheep girl, Mallorie Mason, to learn some cosmetic tips and tricks and what being a Goldsheep means to her!!
First, tell us a little bit about Mallorie...
MM: I am a professional makeup artist of 10 years. I do television, commercial, print, weddings, eye lash extensions, micro blading, waxing and sometimes serve as a personal stylist. I keep myself busy to say the least! I'm based in Orange County, CA, but love traveling for work and doing projects that allow me to see different places in the world! From a young age I knew I wanted to be a makeup artist and I am now getting to live that dream. I love it.
What is one product that you can't leave the house without?
MM: Moisturizer. Without this, your face can become extremely dry and can lead to wrinkles. If we're talkin more along the lines of actual make-up, I would definitely say mascara. 100%. Mascara opens up your eyes and makes you look awake. After a long day at work,, sometimes that's needed!!
What is one make-up top that you feel everyone else should know?
MM: Curling your eyelashes can go a long way. Your eyes are the first thing people see when they look at you so you want to make a good first impression. When you don't look awake or just look tired, this is going to be what someone remembers of you. It's so easy to make your eyes pop and it makes you feel that much more confident throughout the day.
What is the last thing you splurged on?
MM: My car! 2018 Jaguar F-Pace. It was my first real 'woman' purchase and has been a dream car of mine for a while now. It feels so good to see my hard work pay off this way.
Which Kardashian are you and why?
MM: I relate most to Khloe because growing up, I was always the one in my family that looked a little different than everyone else and I always had different goals in life than they did. I am not necessarily as confident as Khloe, I absolutely LOVE her for that, but I do feel like an outside at times. I never wanted your average 9-5 job and went a different path with schooling/my career, which made it difficult for the other generations in my family to understand what it was I wanted.
What does being a Goldsheep mean to you?
MM: Not having to live up to the stereotype of what the world wants you to live up to. I've done everything everyone told me NOT to do and now I'm in a place where people are telling me I'm doing so great. It just provide to me that everyone's paths are alike and THAT'S OKAY.
The norms have changed and it's important that we create a culture for young women to know that you don't have to go the straight and narrow. We don't have to do what previous generations did - times are different now and we are all able to shine in our own unique way.
