Like many girls, Lindsey Haywood’s first memories of the transformative powers of makeup are from childhood dance recitals when she was allowed to don bold shades of eyeshadow for the stage. These days, as the PR rep for MAKE UP FOR EVER Canada, she’s taken the idea of the dance recital to the next level by working with Canada’s Olympic synchro team (MAKE UP FOR EVER’S waterproof AQUA line is unbelievable) and introducing the brand’s latest products to the country’s top beauty editors. We caught up with the makeup maven to find out more about her enviable career and life in her down time…
Give us a snippet about you. What should people know?
During the day I work as the PR rep for MAKE UP FOR EVER in Canada and at night I am a semi-professional dancer with a non-profit contemporary/jazz dance company called Sonia Balazovjech Dance Company and in between I sleep.
Finish this sentence: I love MAKE UP FOR EVER because…
…education and creativity are some of the most important elements of the brand’s values.
What are three things you simply cannot live without?
iPhone, debit card, Face & Body foundation.
What’s your favourite restaurant and why?
Does my mom’s kitchen count?
What’s your favourite drink/cocktail and where do you go to get it?
Love G&Ts (gin and tonics) and I can get a good one just about anywhere. If you’re serving a bad G&T, you should close up shop real fast.
Let’s get social for a mo’. How can people stay up-to-date with all your city-trotting?
