No one puts on a pout like Troi Ollivierre. But the best thing about stocking his highly-anticipated new range of lipsticks isn’t that we get to pretend we’re J.Crew models all day (which we sort of do); or that he might give us gossip about Jenna (which he never does) - it’s that we get to hang with Troi –the most charming and humble man we’ve met in awhile. Here, a little insight into our new favorite person:
I got my start in the beauty world when…my mother had always been into makeup/hair and the latest trends, so at a young age I became interested. Then in my teenage years I went to cosmetology school and was picked up by an agency. My first job was to fly to Milan during fashion week and the rest is history.
I create the perfect pout by …patting a little Chapstick before applying lipstick - gives the lip the perfect pout.
The best way to bring your look from winter to spring is…by simply using colors that work with your skin type. The shades that I created are quite versatile - you can wear them in the winter or spring, depending on the women.
Other than my lipsticks, the one beauty product I can’t live without is… Anastasia Clear Brow Gel, I think every woman should have one – I’m in love with it.
My most valuable insider tip is… instead of applying the lipstick straight from the tube, I use my fingers to pat it on to create a more natural look.
My favorite moment so far has been…that’s such a difficult question, because there have been so many amazing moments. Being blessed enough to work with such great people, being able to travel, and making people feel beautiful.
My next step will be...to create a full makeup line.
