Steal This Day-To-Night Eye Trick From L.A.'s Natural Makeup Maven

L.A.-based makeup artist Jenn Streicher, who gets stars like Mandy Moore, Emily Blunt, and Anne Hathaway red carpet-ready, is easily the most down-to-earth beauty expert we know.

We love that, like us, Jenn has a family business (her salon in L.A., Striike, which tackles the holy trinity of hair, brows and makeup, is a partnership with sisters Kristie and Ashley), and that in an industry that can get pretty heavy-handed (and hyper-contoured), she shares our love of a natural look. Lining Jenn up to create some application videos for our Fall collection was a no-brainer—if you’ve seen Mandy or Anne all done up for an event, you know that Jenn’s signature look is natural and luminous, which is what our #beautygoals are every day of the week.

While Jenn’s Insta is pretty personal, we still thought it would be fun to put her to the test of answering some rapid-fire questions that would get to the heart of our burning questions about her personal approach to beauty. Read on to see just what we mean.
