Meet Janjay Sherman, star of SOAPnet's The Fashionista Diaries. The show is about six twenty-something ambitious grads competing with each other for jobs in fashion, beauty and magazine publishing. They are sent to three different companies and their days are recorded in a documentary-reality style.
In the final episode, after New York Fashion Week is over, we learn that Janjay Sherman lands a job at Flirt! Cosmetics. Through hard work, sincerity and a strong personality, she won over the heart of her boss Kathleen Pierce. Yesterday I was lucky enough to score an interview with her.
To learn more about Janjay's beauty secrets, and to get the scoop on Bridget's very trendy and favorite new nail color,
What does your everyday beauty routine consist of?
I make eyebrow maintenance a definite priority! I've always thought that well-groomed eyebrows can make or break how your overall makeup look comes together.
What is your secret to beautiful skin and hair?
I wish I had beautiful skin. I try my best to exfoliate and moisturize regularly. I faithfully use Good Skin Oil Free Lotion which helps keep my face hydrated and soft. As for my hair, I try my best to avoid every girl's worst nightmare —split ends — so I don't use a lot of heat on my hair, and I always use a shine serum for extra luster.
What trusty go-to colors from Flirt! always remain in your makeup case?
I love Flirt! Plushious Liquid Velvet Lipcolor in Nude Kiss, and my go-to eye color that I can't live without is Dreamy Eyeshadow in Bronze Splash — it's amazing!
What is your guilty pleasure?
I’m kind of embarrassed to admit it, but my favorite secret behavior is pushing back and picking at my cuticles before I give myself a mani/pedi.
Do you trade beauty secrets with any of the other girls on the show? If so, can you share some of them?
LOL— we actually do share beauty secrets with each other. Tina and I talk just about every day, and we are always gabbing about new fabulous beauty finds and discoveries. And just the other day Bridget told me how she has become OBSESSED with OPI’s Russian Navy polish, which I think is gorgeous!
