Do you have any other secret lash tips? Do you curl them before applying mascara?
Yes, I always keep my lashes wrinkled. I have a mirror that you can keep flat on your front surface – so it’s facing the ceiling – and I’m looking at it while applying my mascara, really thinking about finishing my lashes. I apply it under my lashes as most people do, but then I add a coat Upstairs My lashes, as well.
Okay, I’m Emilia way next time I’m trying to do my makeup! It’s interesting because I think a lot of people have started to think of their makeup or skin care methods as self-care, especially in the last year and a half. Do you have any other wellness or self-care practices that you rely on to reduce stress or stay focused?
Yes, so I feel really virtuous when I say it, but I really do it. Every morning I meditate for 10 minutes and then I do about 15 minutes of yoga.

I think everyone would love to be a diner for a day [Laughs]. But also … I don’t think there’s a person on this planet who doesn’t have a dead eyebrow when it comes to your eyebrows – do you have any top makeup tips? Were you like the rest of us and did you ever completely over-pluck?
No, that’s why my mother brought me so close Strict The eyebrow rule was that I was not allowed to touch them all. I didn’t tweak them, I didn’t do anything with them. I thread them now, you know, to make sure I don’t start an unibrow or look like Elmo and just get little strays or whatever. But I just brushed them off and that’s it.
