Beauty & Brains: Heather Park

1. What ethnicity are you?

I’m Korean-American

2. Where are you from? Where do you live now?

I was born in Brooklyn, raised in Westchester and currently reside in Astoria, Queens.

3. What’s your beauty philosophy?

I think Beauty and makeup are such magical things – it can make you look like who you feel like for that particular day or moment. It can make you LOOK rested when you’ve had 3 hours sleep. It can make you look composed when you’ve just been crying for hours. It can give you a little lift every time you look in the mirror. Beauty should be fun, empowering and individual.

4. What’s your skincare routine?

In the morning: St. Ives Apricot Scrub in the shower, followed by the Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleansing Lotion and the La Mer moisturizing Lotion (in the pump). At night, I use the MAC Gentle Off Eye Makeup Remover to get off my eye makeup, do a preliminary wash with the MAC Cleanse Off Oil then finish with the Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel. Followed by the Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleansing Lotion and the Obagi 10% Vitamin C Serum. J

5. What’s your job? Do you wear makeup to work?

By Day, I am a PR Manager for MAC Cosmetics. By Night, I’m an R&B/Soul Singer. To my day job, I usually keep my makeup pretty simple and clean. I usually get into a makeup rut, where I’ll wear the same look pretty much every day. I used to be more inventive when I was younger, but these days, I just do what works in the morning. Whenever I perform, I’ll usually amp it up with False lashes and bright lips. J

6. What are your top 5 makeup items you have to have?

My top 5 must-have makeup items…I guess for my current makeup look:

-MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium (this product will change the appearance of your skin…as one of our Sr. Artists says, “It will give you 16-yr-old skin!” and it’s true!)

-MAC Pigment in Gold Mode (this is from the 2007 summer collection Rushmetal. This is the most beautiful, smooth golden shade – looks great on Asian skin. It gives that perfect luminescence without looking glittery. Plus it lasts all day long!)

-MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack + 209 Brush (I use this gel liner on my top lid. I’m currently really into the cat eye, and the 209 brush give me the mobility to move around the Fluidline, or wipe off my mistakes!)

-MAC Liquidlast Liner in Point Black (I have a bad habit of rubbing my lower eye, so I use this on my bottom lash line. This product will NOT smudge or move around!! It’s absolutely incredible and my liner stays put throughout the day, despite any and all rubbing!)

-MAC Face + Body Tint (This is a makeup artist staple, which is what first attracted me to try it. It’s an amazing product. It gives a sheer, but buildable coverage and leaves your skin looking dewy and healthy. I always try other foundations, but always come back to this one.)
