Beauty Obsessed: Rapid Fire Q’s With Theresa of Theresa is Dead

While the name of her insanely popular beauty YouTube Channel might indicate otherwise, Theresa is very much alive—and a fellow beauty obsessive. We were thrilled to drill her on our rapid-fire beauty questionnaire, which has us putting The Fifth Element in our Netflix queue and scrambling to try her crazy nail polish trick.

My name is Theresa

I’m based in New York City

Eyeliner or mascara? Eyeliner… always eyeliner! 

My best makeup trick is: using nail polish to remove nail polish. Sure, it sounds counterintuitive, but it works.

Is makeup a look or a mood? Always a mood

You should never skip this makeup step: Brows! It’s needed to complete the look, otherwise it’s like a house with no roof.

I fell in love with makeup when my Mom introduced it to me when I was 13.

To serum or not to serum? Always serum! In fact, I firmly believe you cannot have enough serum.

Face oil or cream? Why not both?

My weirdest beauty habit is: taking cold showers. This helps with my redness and gives my skin a healthy glow.

I would never, ever wear: False Eyelashes 

I have x many lipsticks in my bag right now: Four—a girl needs options!

You'd never guess it but I used to never wear blush. I thought the redness in my cheeks would suffice.

Most underrated makeup tool: instant brush cleanser

Foundation application: sponge, brush, fingers? Combination brush/sponge

Lip liner or eyeliner? Eyeliner

Are you a skincare minimalist or maximalist? Maximalist

3 makeup must-haves: an amazing highlighter, colorful eyeliner, and Chantecaille Perfect Blur Finishing Powder

Magnifying mirror—dangerous or helpful? Dangerously Helpful

I can’t leave the house without a lip product on.

Bold lips or bold eyes? Bold Eyes

I could apply highlighter with my eyes closed. 

I keep backup Lip balm in my car.

When I’m not playing with makeup I’m editing YouTube videos.

In my off-time, you’ll always find me hunting for vintage video games with my Husband.

I wish someone would invent (beauty innovation you wish existed) the Makeup Box seen in the movie The Fifth Element

To me, beauty is: in the eye of the beholder



Tune in with Theresa
