#TBT @ItsMatin

I’ve interviewed movers and shakers in the beauty industry and by far, my absolute favorite interviewee was Matin.  He is my favorite because of his amazing life story and charitable activities (in fact, he was a 2007 finalist for CNN Heroes).

Here’s a video from Byrdie where Matin discusses his five must-have products:

My interview with Matin spanned three blog posts:

  1. Part 1
  2. Part 2
  3. Part 3

I hope that you’ll read all three parts and come away impressed by his candor and exuberance .


Twitter chat with @itsMatin @LauraMercier

Today, 1-2 PM Eastern time @LauraMercier hosted a Twitter chat with her global artistic director Matin Maulawizada with hashtag #LMAskMatin.

I’m inept with shadowing the crease.  Matin recommended:

  • Laura Mercier Eye Canvas as a primer – of course 🙂
  • eye shadows 1-2 shades deeper than your skin tone.  Avoid dark tones.
  • a pony tail brush (?)

Read my 3-part interview with Matin at thestylepage.blogspot.com.  He has an amazing life story!  And you’ll want to read all 3 parts to learn about his charity Afghan Hands.  Matin had the distinction of being named a finalist for CNN Heroes in 2007.
