Bella Interview: Amy Keller, Allure Beauty Director

In yesterday's segment of my interview with Allure beauty director, Amy Keller, many of you were intrigued and impressed by her dream job. But if you think the day-to-day lifestyle of a beauty editor involves slapping on as much makeup as possible, think again. As you'll find out from today's installment, that's not necessarily the case. Read on!

A while ago, we posted a photo of [Allure editor in chief] Linda Wells at an event, and she looked great. But it seems that beauty editors don’t wear tons of makeup.
That is true. If you go to any beauty event and look around, you see that there is a little mascara and some lip gloss.

So for you, why is that?
I think a lot of beauty editors put a lot of attention on taking care of their skin. When you are working at a busy job, you just don’t have a lot of time to be really made-up. It’s not that people are not wearing any makeup, it’s just that they are wearing, like, mascara and powder — sort of the essentials. So they look pulled together without having to spend a lot of time in the morning.

I will say I am a person who likes to try out different things. I will come in occasionally wearing a bronze eye look, or smoky eyes. Or when red lipstick returned to the scene last Summer, I was totally into red lipstick and wearing that around. I think people think just because you’re a beauty editor, you’re going to be this makeup artist who is applying loads and loads of fake lashes and lipsticks. But really, you’re a reporter who is finding out about the new trend.

Come back tomorrow to find out what Amy has to say about beauty blogs.
