Popular Blogger: Nancy Houlmont from Beauty411

Tuesday September 21, 2010

Nancy Houlmont is a certified Beauty Junkie – her friends have known that since forever.  It was their repeated questions about her skincare regimen that prompted her to start her now 3-year-old blog, Beauty411,  where beauty fiends go for the ‘411’ on what’s new and trendy in the beauty biz.  We're loving this pretty lady from Wisconsin!

ChickAdvisor: What has been a major highlight for you during your blogging experience?

Nancy Houlmont:  A dream come true for me was meeting and having a conversation with Bobbi Brown—she’s so warm and genuine; and in talking with her, she was familiar with the area where I live!

CA: Which fashion icons inspire you?

NH: I adore the history and timeless inspiration of Coco Chanel, but in today’s more modern sense, I love Gwen Stefani’s style and I think Victoria Beckham is always flawless.

Houlmont profiles the newest product launches, including her guilty pleasure - Chanel Nail Polish

CA: What must-have makeup products top your list?

NH: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation has been a Holy Grail beauty product for me for years. I’m never without a bottle in my makeup cabinet.  And even though they’re not “makeup products”, I have to mention that I use the MAC #222 (tapered blending brush) and the #239 (eye shader brush) every single day.  A good brush is an essential tool for makeup application.

We *heart* the Fall looks from Lancome and Estee Lauder

CA: Who are your favourite fashion designers?

NH:  Favorite fashion designer would be Carolina Herrera and Michael Kors; favorite jewelry designer is David Yurman.  Whether in fashion or jewelry, I tend to favor a modern, classic look.

CA: If you were on Sex and the City, which character would you be?

NH: I think my personality embodies a little of each of the girls, but I love Samantha’s confidence.

I absolutely agree that good brushes are key. I'm often amazed how much better any brand wears when you use proper tools.

I also love what she said about Samantha (SATC) - we all need a little moxie in our lives!
