We talk to Rebecca about fresh faces, flowers, and her imagination in this Spring time OPALUS interview:
OPALUS - Spring is here! Are you excited?
REBECCA – Yes! I’m so unbelievably excited to have Spring arrive; finally! I used to be a fan of Winter but I think with how long it stays now, I’m definitely changing sides!
OPALUS - What color is inspiring you most lately?
REBECCA - Definitely Radiant Orchid! It is this year’s ‘Must Have’ color! I love that it’s playful, flirty and fun - not to mention the pop of unexpected color it gives!
OPALUS - What does your imagination look?
REBECCA - My Imagination = Chaos. Utter and complete Chaos. Haha! That’s good though, right? There’s no end and no beginning to my imagination. I’m always thinking of ideas and sometimes several at once. I find the more I let myself experiment, the more I am able to come up with. I love dreaming about concepts and I get inspired from the littlest thing in my everyday adventures.
OPALUS - What is your favorite makeup look for the spring time?
REBECCA - Spring is all about having a fresh start so I’m all about fresh, clean faces, dewy skin and a pop of Radiant Orchid on the lips! I recommend Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayons (Sephora $28.00). If you aren’t a lipstick person, try some bright and fun eyeliner in similar colors! It’ll be sure to freshen up your look and make you feel great!
OPALUS - What smells remind you of the spring?
REBECCA - Grass, Fresh Air, Bonfires and Flowers!
