5 Minutes With: Carola G

Celebrity makeup artist Carola Gonzalez is so pretty – you’d think she was a model. The first time I met her, she had the most amazing coral nail polish on. (It was Essie Flirt which I totally copied her and bought it the next day.) Born in Puerto Rico, Carola discovered her passion for makeup while living in Miami, and moved to Los Angeles in 2003 where her career took off. She has worked with David Duchovny, Gerard Butler and is the personal makeup artist to Kerry Washington. Plus, she does an amazing spray tan. Mai & I have both had the privilege of her tanning perfection.

Last job you worked on? Cover of Men's Health with Ryan Kwanten.
3 products in your personal makeup bag right now? NARS Malibu stick. Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara Very Black and Clinique Eye Cream Shadow Cocoa Shimmer.
Beauty trend you’re loving? I'm loving the lip tint look on the lips. It adds color to your face without looking like you are wearing makeup. Also, tints can be used as blush to give a flush look. You can do the same using a matte lipstick. I like the Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in 0068. It's like a Berry Vamp.
Beauty icon? Marion Cotillard – stunning!
Favorite city? Barcelona
Favorite restaurant? The Little Door
