As we continue into Spring with the thoughts on the Summer, we want to look our best to take advantage of fabulous weather, time with friends and just being able to look the way we wish. We took a moment to chat with Zyrtec Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg, who has a who's who list of celebrity clients, great tips to maintain great face even during allergy season as well as a really cool person to talk to in general in terms of her journey of being a Celebrity Makeup Artist.
ATHLEISURE MAG: Tell us about your background and that moment you realized that you wanted to be a makeup artist?
JAMIE GREENBERG: I've always been into art and makeup. Before moving to Los Angeles, I worked at an ULTA - really just to kill time and I loved being surrounded by makeup, so why not? The discount was a girl's best friend. The first time I gave a makeover I knew this was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life!
AM: What is an average day like for you versus during awards season or a press junket for your clients?
JG: A normal day usually starts with me feeding and getting my kids ready for the day, dropping my 6-year-old off at school and then heading to my work out. Next, I either have a client to makeup or I shoot video content for my YouTube channel. During award season and press junkets, I only have time to work! It's a full day.
AM: Who are your celeb clients and who would you like to have as a client?
JG: My celebrity clients include Kaley Cuoco, Rashida Jones, Lauren Graham, Kristen Stewart, Lauren Cohan, Katie Lowes, just to name a few. I'd love to work with Oprah, The Broad City Girls, Lena Dunham.
AM: Why have you partnered with Zyrtec and how do allergies affect your face when we hit that season?
JG: This is my fourth year working with Zyrtec to help women across the country deal with their Allergy Face beauty challenges. You know what I’m talking about! The red nose, puffiness and watery eyes that come around during allergy season. As an allergy sufferer myself, I love the opportunity this program gives me to develop new ways to help women look better when the pollen count is high each year. Anyone can use these tips so they feel motivated to tackle their day in the spring time.
AM: How can those who suffer from allergies combat the effects with makeup and/or beauty hacks?
JG: You can find all of my Allergy Face tips and tricks on the beGlammed app and website - beGlammed.com/Zyrtec-allergy-face. Courtesy of the makers of Zyrtec, you will also be able to book any of my Allergy Face looks through the beGlammed website and app to receive Allergy Face makeovers from the comfort of your own home (through June 7th!).
AM: What are the beauty trends that we should be infusing into our skincare or beauty routines?
JG: I'm really into oils right now, both before you put on makeup and after. Either working out or wearing a face mask while watching Netflix!
AM: What are 3 must-have beauty products and 3 must have skincare products that we should have in our cosmetic bags?
AM: What is your personal style - what do you wear when you're working with your clients and what do you wear when you're out and about at brunch?
JG: When I'm with my clients I usually wear a dope pair of kicks, Rag and Bone Jeans, Maje shirt or my favorite Equipment Cashmere when it's cold! When I'm out and about I rock all GoldSheep - usually to work out or to run errands. That line is addictive!
