Inside CATRICE Maria

Three things that are always in your bag?

Mobile phone, wallet, lip balm.

Your absolute beauty must-have?

BB cushion with SPF.

Your last make-up fail?

Was at the age of 14. If I could give my teenage self a piece of advice: Don't overdo it with black eyeliner and mascara.

What inspires you?

My mum. I get my passion for skin care from her and she is the reason that I am interested in the beauty industry. When I was younger, I thought her very careful skincare routine was crazy, but now I see that it’s worth it.

What do you love about your job?

That I learn something new every day. The beauty world is so dynamic and fun – you can never get enough of it! But what I value most is being surrounded by people who share my passion for beauty.

When did you first use make-up on yourself?

I was 14 years old.

What is your favourite colour?

Black. It’s stylish, chic, versatile and goes with everything.

How many lipsticks do you own?

About 50. 80% of these are lip tints. The other 20% are lipsticks in nude tones.

Which beauty trend have you had enough of?

Crazy eyebrows and unicorns.
