Sometimes getting ready is the best part of going out. Actually, most of the time getting ready is the best part of going out. The second best part is getting food on the way home. But during Pride Month, the ritual magic (and fun) of getting ready takes on additional significance for us. In order to do it well and do it right during Pride, we called in a few of our MMU Fam favorites to Milk Studios to show us how they get ready and talk to us about what it means to Wear Your Pride. Say hi to Marcelo, Serena, Precious, and Dorian — a makeup artist, drag artist, rapper, and tooth gem artist, respectively — and have a good time out there this month.

\n

Meet Precious Ebony, a New York City original and self-described “big, bald, beautiful person” and “happy spirit.” In addition to having killer style, Precious counts rapping among his many talents and mentions his grandmother as his greatest inspiration. With a swipe of blush and a little nude lipstick (“so the haters can’t see me talking back to them”) he’s ready to go for the night.

Born and raised in the Bronx, Serena Tea is a Brooklyn-based drag artist (and model and dancer who also works part-time in a coffee shop). Serena names her mother as her biggest supporter. “I feel like something other parents would think is embarrassing she held high,” she explains. Pack the glitter on and get to know more about Serena.

\n

\n

This is Dorian, a tooth gem artist from New Jersey. Growing up around a lot of queer musicians taught Dorian the importance of safe spaces where true expression and self-discovery can take place. “Pride to me is doing whatever you want, whenever you want, and feeling comfortable and safe,” she says. Add a little gleam in her teeth and an intergalactic pink glow (thanks to Holographic Stick in Stardust) and she’s on her way.

Marcelo is a longtime friend of Milk Makeup. He’s also multitalented— a storyteller (that’s him in our Blur The Lines video), a makeup artist…he kinda does it all. “As a kid, I identified with Esmeralda from Hunchback of Notre Dame, who to me was this beautiful character, but misunderstood because of who she was and what she did,” says Marcelo. “She reminds me to keep going.”

If you’re in the mood for a hair overhaul but don’t quite know what you want, look no further than salon Shizen’s Instagram. The Williamsburg-based salon specializes in colors and cuts that defy the ordinary in the best way possible. Rather than subtle ombres and red-carpet ready bobs, the stylists and colorists at Shizen often aim for bright colors, extreme angles, and opposing lengths — sometimes all on the same head of hair. The salon’s Instagram also functions as an instant mood board, filled with the kinds of cool kids whose hair would make you do a double-take if you passed them on the street.

\n

To get an inside look at what goes into the Shizen creative process, and what the team is dreaming up for the coming year, we talked with Mai, the vice director and one of Shizen’s lead stylists. True to Shizen form, she didn’t want to prescribe any specific trends, lest it impede your own creative process, but she did offer some key tips for your best hair day — and year — yet.

\n

Milk Makeup: What is Shizen’s origin story? How did the salon get started?

\n

Mai: Shizen Brooklyn is in Williamsburg but we also have a salon in Tokyo. We opened 13 years ago in the East Village, and we moved to Brooklyn six years ago. So now we only have two salons. But my bosses, the owners, go back and forth between here and Tokyo almost every other month. So we try to blend both; take the New York things to Tokyo and from Tokyo to New York. I think it’s pretty special from any other salon. The salon itself, we renovated and expanded the Williamsburg space last October and it’s pretty huge right now. Tokyo also expanded to two floors, so it’s quite nice but it’s still a smaller space and it’s really good vibes.

\n

MMU: All of the looks on Instagram are really unique. Is there anything that you know the salon considers your specialty?

\n

Mai: Every time, we try to do new things that we really didn’t see before. Of course, we have a lot of inspiration from other eras, other things like music or art. But we try to do our own style, which we rarely see anywhere else. As you can see on Instagram, it’s quite original. We also try to work with models who can do styles that aren’t the “normal” ones you usually see in pictures or wherever.

\n

\"\"

\n

MMU: How do you work with clients, when they come in? How does the team decide what you’re going to do together to give them the final look that they want?

\n

Mai: Usually when we do a consultation, we ask about what they want to do. But if they are like, ‘It’s up to you, you decide,’ we try to do a style that perfectly suits their style. Not every single style we want to do is “crazy,” or “not normal.” We want to help people look way better than before. I’m sure that if someone searches for Shizen and they like our look, that’s why they come to our salon. So we try to do a style to make them really cute or cool.

\n

MMU: What are some trends that you’re really excited about for 2019?

\n

Mai: We can’t exactly say, “this is going to be the trend of 2019,” but recently we feel like so many New York people want to be more original, way more than before. For example, the color. They used to do more natural highlights, or natural smoky pink, or color that was subtle. But now they are changing to a full head of color, or brighter. We used to do more one-color looks but recently so many people have asked for two colors, or three colors, or even more. And even with that, we used to do a lot of same-shade looks, like pink and orange, or blue and green.

\n

But recently people have asked for looks that are crazier or weird, in a good way. So now we do more warm tones plus cool tones, like red and blue, or orange and green. I think people want to be more unique, so I would say in 2019 is all about originality, for color and haircuts. It’s more gender-fluid. We have girls who want haircuts that have traditionally been thought of as boyish styles, and boys who want longer styles. Sometimes they even bring pictures, and a boy brings a girl’s picture or a girl brings a boy’s picture.

\n

MMU: Are there any specific angles or shapes that you’re seeing?

\n

Mai: The mullet is pretty popular. Last year, it was completely mullet-style. But it’s changing a bit, so it’s longer. Some people want super short bangs, or some people leave the tail [at the nape of the neck].

\n

\"\"

\n

MMU: If people want to take a hair risk, what advice can you give them for finding inspiration for their own look?

\n

Mai: I don’t think we can say from here, like “from this thing” or “from that thing” specifically. But of course, a lot of people find their inspiration from old movies or old magazines or even magazines from other countries. I think they love to find inspiration from the ’70s or ’80s, or even the ’90s recently. When We do photoshoots, we also find inspiration from those days too.

\n

MMU: What kind of products are you loving lately, to style hair?

\n

Mai: We have an original product called Shizen Shea Butter, and you can use it with any hair length or texture, so all the girls and all the boys use it. It’s made with shea butter and it’s organic, so you can even put it on your face or body. It’s a really moisture-filled, creamy paste but it also makes really, really good texture. It’s about 10 years old but so many people still love it.

\n

MMU: What else about Shizen would you want people to know?

\n

Mai: The people who come to Shizen, they don’t want want to look “normal” or “natural.” They want to be a little different from other people or other styles. We do unexpected hair, with color or cut or perm. We can create a more original look just for you.

\n

In addition to our original Instagram photos, we also have Shizen books. We pretty much tried to do one every year or every other year. It’s more our art side, so not only “hair”-hair. Some of the books look like a zines, but some are a little thicker. We collaborate with amazing photographers and creative people.

Happy Pride, MMU Fam!  This year, we’re super excited to announce our third collaboration with The  Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center (The Center), a downtown New York-based organization that seeks to empower people to lead healthy, successful lives, celebrate diversity, and advocate for justice and opportunity. We’re teaming up with them to bring you the Wear Your Pride Set, a perfect trio of Pride essentials. The set includes a Glitter Stick in Techno, a Deluxe KUSH Mascara, and a Mini Holographic Stick in Stardust, all packed in a cute white clutch with a rainbow zipper. Swipe on some glitter, a lil’ mascara, a galactic pink glow and you’re good to go.

\n

For us, Wearing Your Pride is all about the journey towards self-acceptance and feeling free to fully express yourself, a pillar of our DNA since our inception. It’s about feeling good on the inside, feeling empowered and free to be yourself, and expressing that joy on the outside. Milk Makeup Co-Founder and Creative Director, Georgie Greville explains, “Wearing Your Pride is really about being able to shine with your identity and articulating how you feel inside on the outside. It’s a direct extension of our tagline #LiveYourLook, which means whoever you are, wear that and show that in your physical as well as what you do through your actions in life.” We will be sharing videos, interviews, images, and beyond on our social channels, website, Vibes, and e-mails. We will also be celebrating in NYC for the first-ever World Pride Parade to close out the month on June 30th.

\n

For our third year, during the month of June, Milk Makeup will donate 100% of the net proceeds of the Wear Your Pride
 Set up to $50,000 to The Center to help achieve its mission to empower people to lead healthy, successful lives, celebrate diversity, and advocate for justice and opportunity. We’re also getting our Sephora fam involved again for more widespread awareness and support. The Wear Your Pride Set is available on Milkmakeup.com and Sephora.com. “Both Milk Studios and The Center are creative, safe spaces for all in downtown Manhattan. There is so much overlap between our communities and we support everything The Center stands for. We’ve shared a longstanding relationship and are thrilled to give back to them for a third year,” says Mazdack Rassi, Co-Founder of Milk Makeup.

GLOW OIL LIP + CHEEK:

\n

A DEWY FLUSH ON THE FLY.

\n

Popsicles have their pros and cons. The pros: they’re delicious, refreshing, fun, etc. The cons: they melt, drip down your arm, and last for, like, less than 5 minutes. What if we told you that we bottled all of the summer magic of popsicles into something that gives you a shimmery, juicy, popsicle flush, lasts all day, and doesn’t attract bugs?

\n

Meet Glow Oil Lip + Cheek: the perfect companion for all of your summer activities: bike rides, running after the ice cream truck, sitting in the park, sitting in front of the AC, complaining about how hot it is…. Glow Oils bring an instant shimmery popsicle tint to your lips and cheeks in just one swipe. Read on to learn more about ‘em then stock up for summer.

\n

Glow Oils…

\n

HYDRATE
\nAntioxidant-rich rice bran oil provides your skin with a surge of hydration and vitamins for an instant, good-for-you glow.

\n

\"\"

\n

TINT
\nJuicy shimmering colors glide on sheer and blend seamlessly for a subtle tint.

\n

\"\"

\n

DO BOTH
\nWear on your cheeks as a glowy blush or on your lips as a popsicle stain. Color payoff builds as you swipe.

\n

\"\"

\n

DIRECTIONS
\nDot onto cheeks or apply to lips for a hint of color, shimmer, and hydration. Glow Oils blend in sheer and build for bolder color.

\n

We’ve got 5 shades for ya:

\n

HALO – bright pink shimmer

\n

ASTRO – plum shimmer

\n

FLARE – coral shimmer

\n

GLIMMER – mauve shimmer

\n

SOLAR – watermelon shimmer (MMU.COM EXCLUSIVE)

\n

At Milk Makeup, we believe in good ingredients + epic payoff. Something else we believe in? Puppies. We have an office dog named Buddy who spreads licks ’n’ love as he makes his way through Milk Makeup HQ. Because we love Buddy, and our planet, we promise to always be cruelty-free, paraben-free, and 100% vegan. That means using sustainably sourced ingredients whenever possible and never testing on animals or formulating with animal-derived products or byproducts. It also means being transparent with our Fam. As we grow, we’re taking steps to be more environmentally-conscious every day, especially as more clean-focused ingredients and technologies are developed. Our latest earth-friendly move? We’re psyched to share that we are officially Leaping Bunny certified. Leaping Bunny is the gold standard for cruelty-free certifications and we will proudly wear our bunny logo for our Fam, but also, of course, for Buddy the dog. We talked to Kim Paschen, program manager at Leaping Bunny, to explain what this certification means for you:

\n

Milk Makeup: What is the Leaping Bunny Certification?
\nKim Paschen: Leaping Bunny certifies companies to be free of animal testing at all stages of product development, from ingredients to formulations to finished products.

\n

MMU: What are the standards that a brand must meet in order to get the certification?
\nKP: In order to become Leaping Bunny certified, a company must submit documentation that demonstrates their entire supply chain is free of animal testing as well as their finished products. They must choose a fixed cut-off date after which no new animal testing can occur. They also must promise to recommit to the Leaping Bunny Program annually and be open to a third party audit of their supply chain management.

\n

MMU: What does a Leaping Bunny certification mean for the customer? What does this tell them about a product or brand?
\nKP: A shopper can be assured that when they purchase products from a Leaping Bunny certified company, they are purchasing something that is verified to be free of animal testing at all stages of product development. They can also be assured that the brands on Leaping Bunny’s list have all had to renew their commitment to the program within the last 12 months in order to remain certified.

\n

MMU: Have you seen a major increase in brands that are interested in getting the Leaping Bunny Certification?
\nKP: Absolutely. When I started working with the Leaping Bunny Program in 2010, we have less than 300 companies on our list. We now have over 1,400!

\n

MMU: Why do you think consumers are asking for this?
\nKP: Consumers know that animal tests on cosmetics are outdated and unnecessary. There are plenty of amazing products on the market which are not animal-tested that are completely safe and work as they are supposed to. This influx of cruelty-free products into the marketplace has raised the bar for everyone involved.

\n

MMU: What do you think the future of vegan beauty looks like?
\nKP: Never better! More and more suppliers and manufacturers are doing away with animal testing while at the same time inventing new formulations that do amazing things. Furthermore, the world of alternative test methods continues to expand and improve so that these testing methods are becoming the rule instead of the exception.

Quinlivan, the New Face of KUSH Mascara, Has Some Thoughts"},"content":{"rendered":"

by Abby McIntosh

\n

Teddy Quinlivan is our kinda girl. She sort of does…whatever the f*ck she wants. Or, at least, that’s the goal. She was unhappy in New York, so she moved. She’ll 100% wear a smoky eye at 10 AM (and then happily wash it all off in front of you). She has no plans on cooking anytime soon. And no, actually, she wouldn’t go back in time and give advice to her 15-year-old-self. She’s a woman who’s come to understand that all she’s gone through, even the worst of it, has brought her to where she is today, to a truer relationship with herself and a fuller understanding of the world. She’s on her way and moving fast, learning as she goes, but she took a minute to sit down with us and talk about the important stuff: eyebrows, Jane Fonda, and lobster ravioli. With sharpness and moxie unmatched, we thought: who better to rep the evolution of a game-changing franchise like KUSH than Teddy?

\n

Milk Makeup: What’s your relationship with makeup? Is it a daily thing for you?

\n

Teddy Quinlivan: I love wearing makeup. There are days when I don’t wanna put stuff on my face, but makeup makes me look infinitely better. It’s not that I don’t feel confident without it, it’s just that I know I look better with it. I feel like, you know, why not? Also for me, doing makeup is a very meditative process. I put on YouTube and I’ll watch the news or something while I do it. It’s alone time.

\n

MMU: How long does it take? Do you have a 5-minute version of your routine and then, like, an hour-long version?

\n

TQ: Girl, there’s no 5-minute version. For me, I would like to take an hour to do it — that way I feel like you get in everything you want and it looks perfect. An hour is ideal to do, like, a perfect glam. But a fast glam I can do in 15 minutes. But I like to do looks.

\n

MMU: On a daily basis?

\n

TQ: Yeah. I’ll do a smoky eye for, like, 10 AM. I’m just that kind of a girl.

\n

MMU: So what are your essential products that you have to have whether you’re doing a serious look or the fast version?

\n

TQ: A good concealer, like a contour shade that’s nice and cool. I’ll use it around my face, on my forehead, along my jawline. You can honestly do a full face with just concealer, contour, and highlight. I go through phases where I love my brows with nothing in them and then sometimes I feel like they need a kick, so for me, a good brow pencil [is essential]. And I’m really into brow pens now, like a skinny little tip so you can do smaller strokes. Even on a day where I’m doing a completely fresh face I’ll do a brow because I look too normal without makeup on, too pedestrian. I like looking like my profession. There’s this Joan Crawford quote — actually, maybe it’s not Joan Crawford — but she’s like, “When I leave my house, I leave my house as Joan Crawford the movie star,” you know? I’m not famous or anything, but I do get photographed a lot on the street, and you never know what client you’re going to run into.

\n

\"\"

\n

MMU: After you’ve done a lot of shows or shoots, do you go through periods where you’re like, “I just can’t wear makeup right now?”

\n

TQ: Yes. If I have a big breakout or something…if I start to get pimples in the center of my face, like by my nose and cheeks, that’s when there’s been too much product on my face.

\n

MMU: What about skincare?

\n

TQ: I’m a skincare addict. At the end of the day, if you’re going home with a guy or a girl or whatever your preference is, like, even for a one night stand, I will not sleep in my makeup.

\n

MMU: Even then you’ll take all your makeup off?

\n

TQ: I’ll take all my makeup off in front of them. But I feel comfortable doing that because my skin is nice. Invest in a bougie moisturizer, invest in a bougie serum. I use a hyaluronic acid serum because hyaluronic acid attracts water. I have kind of dry skin. I use that day and night and it instantly plumps you. So I’ll do an AHA toner and then on top of that I put my serums. I layer serums, so I’ll do, like, two serums and then a rich moisturizer.

\n

MMU: So you’re not afraid of doing too much?

\n

TQ: Oh no. I think you should do too much. The only thing I’m not into is eye creams. And so then, on top of that, I’ll put face oil. Face oil should be your last step because it’ll block any penetration of anything that goes above it. Then I feel like I have a nice, greasy barrier to put my makeup on. Your skin, even the oiliest skin type, loves moisture. That’s how you stay right and tight: moisture, moisture, moisture, moisture.

\n

MMU: How about mascara?

\n

TQ: I do like mascara.

\n

MMU: 1 coat? 2 coats? Waterproof? Primer?

\n

TQ: I’m the waterproof girl today, but I’m not normally a waterproof mascara kind of person just because I plan on not crying wherever I go [laughs]. Waterproof mascara is a special occasion type thing or if I really wanna lock in a curl.

\n

I like to use a nice thickening [mascara]. I actually really love KUSH Mascara. It does what I need it to do — it lengthens, separates, and gives me good volume. That’s what I like. I don’t need a false lash look, but I want it to look like my lashes on their best day.

\n

MMU: What about false lashes? Lash extensions?

\n

TQ: Nope, none of that. For some people I think it makes a lot of sense and it looks really good, but it’s just not my style. I like to look done but not artificial. And it’s also a particular style and aesthetic. Like, when I think of false lashes, I think of a specific person, and that’s just not me.

\n

MMU: What’s your go-to look for a night out?

\n

TQ: I like a brown smoky eye with a really nice inner corner highlight. A nice coating of mascara, beautiful skin, contour and blush, highlighted, brows done. I’m an eye girl; I’m not a lip girl.

\n

MMU: When you get home after a night out, what’s your routine for taking stuff off? Do you really take it all off?

\n

TQ: Yeah, I take it all off. I have a really nice cleanser that just melts it all away. I take a good moment cleansing my face; I just let it melt off and do its thing. I’ll cleanse once to get the makeup off and then I’ll use the same cleanser again to make sure it’s really off. Maybe if I was only wearing a little bit of makeup I’d just cleanse once, but I wear heavy makeup when I go out.

\n

MMU: Outside of work, what have you been doing recently that makes you happy?

\n

TQ: I live in Paris. I’ve lived there since August, but I lived there for three years prior, and then I lived in New York for a few years. New York is just not my city. I just don’t really connect with it quite as much as I want to. I feel like I’m a Parisian girl at heart in so many ways. I like to explore; I like to listen to my music and walk around. There’s so much to see in Paris. There’s so much stuff that inspires me. Whether it’s sitting at a cafe and watching people walk by on the street or going to the disco with my friends and partying all night. I just keep my eyes and ears open. I’m always trying to absorb as much as I can.

\n

MMU: Do you love your alone time?

\n

TQ: I honestly need my alone time.

\n

MMU: Do you think it’s because part of your job is to give so much personality?

\n

TQ: Yes. I show up to work and it’s Teddy Quinlivan the model that shows up. In my daily life, I wanna look like Teddy Quinlivan the model but be removed from that sphere in a way. In some ways, I’m quite introverted in my free time. Look all you want, but don’t touch. Do not come up to me on the street and talk to me. Just because you follow me on Instagram, doesn’t mean we’re friends.

\n

\"\"

\n

MMU: When you have days where you just don’t wanna do anything, what do you do?

\n

TQ: Oh my gosh, I will just sit in my bed except to just pick up my Uber Eats that I’ve probably ordered three times throughout the course of the day. I’ll just go into the black hole of the internet, or I’ll catch up on something I have to do. Like, tax season is coming up…

\n

MMU: Do you get sick of traveling?

\n

TQ: Yes. I travel a lot and it does get really stressful. I hate airports. I hate airplanes. I hate, like, sitting in a seat that’s completely uncomfortable. And I’m not a business-class-only kind of girl. I’ll fly myself economy if I’m paying for the flight. Or a lot of times clients don’t have the budget — or “don’t have the budget” — so a lot of the time you’re not flying comfortably. And I’m a 6-foot-tall woman; I’m a tall girl. It’s a lot of time doing nothing.

\n

MMU: So do you have a reset period when you get back home?

\n

TQ: After I travel, ideally I’ll have 48 hours to myself. I need, like, two days to kind of get back into being a human again. But that’s not always the case, either. That’s my preference, but sometimes you just have to jump right back into work.

\n

MMU: Do you want to keep modeling?

\n

TQ: [Modeling] was never a passion of mine; it was never something that really excited me. I was excited about fashion and creativity and being able to work with creative people and create beautiful images. I don’t really care about being the subject of an image, but [I care about] playing a role in creating something beautiful and iconic… Or something like this [Milk Makeup KUSH campaign] that’s going to be in Sephora and knowing that so many people are going to see it and be influenced by it, that’s the cool part. But I don’t gag for sitting in hair and makeup for hours.

\n

MMU: So what’s the most frustrating part about being a model?

\n

TQ: When the idea isn’t good. When the concept isn’t nice. You know by the second look or the second shot how it’s going to turn out. Especially if you’re not getting paid, you’re just sitting there like, “Well, this is gonna be shitty.” I did a lot of that at the beginning of my career ‘cause you just have to suck it up and do it, but I’m at a point now in my career where I can say yes or no to projects that I’m impassioned or not impassioned by. I just wanna say “no” way more often now.

\n

MMU: What’s it like to be a spokesperson in addition to modeling?

\n

TQ: For whatever reason, people wanna listen to pretty people talk about things. I knew it was gonna come with the territory. It’s not like I came out about being transgender publicly on CNN to not talk about it. Having this extra layer to my career adds depth and makes it worth it. Even when I really don’t wanna be at a shoot and don’t wanna take another f*cking photo, I think to myself, a young trans person is going to see this and think, “Maybe I can do that one day,” or feel inspired and less uncomfortable about being who they are. Even though it’s not the kind of work I envisioned myself doing in my life, it’s good because I know that it will leave an impact. Fashion, whether you like it or not, is highly influential on culture. Just by me working and being successful and trying to set an example and lead by example, that’s going to hopefully rub off on people.

\n

MMU: If you show up to set and they wanna chop your hair off or something, what’s your reaction?

\n

TQ: People wanna do things to me all the time, and everybody has an opinion and suggestions about how you should live your life and how you should look. I’ve just seen myself so many different ways from modeling for so long and now I know, like, “No.” I don’t wanna be rude and be like, “That’s a shitty idea,” but sometimes it is a shitty idea and you have to be like, “Oh, well what about this?”

\n

MMU: You tell them to f*ck off in your own way?

\n

TQ: Yeah, in my own way. I’m not very good at hiding how I feel. My face gives it away and I can’t fake liking something. You can make any hairstyle work with the right makeup, and you can make any makeup work with the right hairstyle, but they have to work in sync with each other. They’re both equally important.

\n

\"\"

\n

MMU: What are you listening to right now?

\n

TQ: I’ve always been really big into deep house and disco and electronic and techno. That’s really what I listen to the most. Right now I’m really into a genre called soul house or gospel house. It’s basically music that takes you to church, you know? You’re like, “Yes gawd! Praise the lord!” Music that uplifts you and makes you feel happy and gives you energy and makes you feel like life is beautiful and fun and dance-y; I like music like that.

\n

MMU: What do you listen to when you need a somber moment?

\n

TQ: I download a lot of movie soundtracks. I love to listen to movie soundtracks when I walk around. A great one for anyone in New York — ‘cause I know Milk Makeup is a New York brand — download the Blade Runner soundtrack, the original Vangelis soundtrack. On a rainy, cold-ass day in New York, listen to “Love Theme Song” from Blade Runner and it’ll set the mood. That’s such a good somber one. Don’t depress yourself with Lana Del Rey. Don’t listen to music that’s like, life is so hard, life is so sad, nobody loves me, I’m alone. It just reinforces that negativity. You can listen to a song that reflects your mood without it having this message of, like, “I’m down in the dumps!”

\n

MMU: What are you watching?

\n

TQ: Right now I’m really into Grace & Frankie with Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda. Jane Fonda is a literal representation of me in 50 years. Or maybe in 40 years. She’s so snatched; I won’t look that good in 50 years. I’ll be dead [laughs]. She’s just such an icon and I’m so inspired by her right now. Like, Jane Fonda — you could have a drink with Jane Fonda. You could have a drink every night with Jane Fonda. I like women who have been places and done things and who live authentically and have opinions and aren’t afraid to share them and aren’t afraid to embrace their sexuality. I didn’t fall in love with Jane Fonda as an actress, I fell in love with her as a person. She’s a real bitch and I love her. So Grace & Frankie, j’adore.

\n

My favorite movie is Kill Bill. And Girl With A Dragon Tattoo, the American version by David Fincher, I love. And I love Stoker, it’s by a Korean director. It’s kind of about having an attraction to something that you know is wrong. It really explores these feelings of attraction in a way that most movies I think are too scared to touch on. It’s a super-twisted coming-of-age type thing. Handmaiden is another fave.

\n

MMU: What would say to your 15-year-old self? How would you spend the day with your 15-year-old self?

\n

TQ: I wouldn’t say anything. I feel like because I had no guidance and no person tapping me on the shoulder saying, “No, do it this way,” I had to figure out things for myself. That’s how I’ve become the person I am today. It’s the butterfly effect. I wouldn’t wanna go back. I wouldn’t wanna spend the day with myself. Like, let my 15-year-old self be miserable and lonely and bullied and all the things I was back then. That’s the shit that makes you humble and makes you appreciative of looking in the mirror and being like, “You know what? I look great today, and I’m gonna go hang out with my cool friends.”

\n

MMU: Yeah, like, “Despite all the shit I went through, I’m still a decent person.”

\n

TQ: Exactly. I think you need to go through the bullshit to become the person you are. So I wouldn’t go back in time and hang out with myself or speak to myself.

\n

\"\"

\n

MMU: Ok so what’s your favorite meal?

\n

TQ: Oh my god, I can think of a hundred. I love seafood. I’m a seafood addict. I grew up in Boston. I didn’t live on the coast, but we had fresh seafood all the time. And I’m from an Italian family, so like, pasta. One of my favorite dishes is lobster ravioli.

\n

MMU: Do you cook?

\n

TQ: Oh, I can’t cook to save my life. And I don’t necessarily want to, you know what I mean? I would rather break the bank on Uber Eats than cook for myself. The other thing, too, is like you go to the grocery store and spend $200 buying all these nice ingredients. I feel like if I don’t use them all, I wasted all this money.

\n

MMU: Yeah. Don’t play yourself.

\n

TQ: Don’t play yourself, girl. Just order your food and shut up. But you know what? I like people that can cook and want to do that. I’m inspired by that but it’s just not me. I would love to date, like, a hottie who can cook.

\n

MMU: Do you like to be the hostess?

\n

TQ: In ways, yes. I like to have a good time, but I don’t want people to count on me to facilitate the good time. I’m not the inviter; I’m the invitee. I wait for the invitation and then I’m like, “Ok, let’s do it.” Also, too, I don’t think the quantity of friends matters in terms of hosting. I know a lot of people with that mentality. They wanna be around a million people all the time, and I would rather be around, like, two really cool, down b*tches.

\n

That’s part of the reason I left New York. I was in this group of kids who didn’t like me but wanted to hang out around me. I ended up being surrounded by people I didn’t like who were really negative. It had a really negative effect on my life. They were all basically drug addicts. Jobless drug addicts, too. Like, “I host parties.” If you’ve been hosting parties and you’re not, like, Lady Fag…like, what’s going on? As much as I love it — I love to have fun and party — it can be a very dark lifestyle. I was hanging out with people who only did that, or that was their recreational activity, like going out and getting f*cked up. Life is about balance. You have to find the balance.

\n

MMU: Are you going to stay in Paris?

\n

TQ: No. I love to travel. I love to live in different places. I love new experiences. I don’t like to get too attached to one place. I started going to boarding school when I was 15 or 16 and I started modeling when I was 17. Be adventurous. Life is short. Don’t just stay in one place. You don’t know what you’re missing out on. Take a risk. The world is so beautiful and it’s not going to be here for much longer, so you know what, you wanna see a coral reef? There’s, like, one left. We’re damaging the world in ways we don’t know, so go see it while it’s still here. Sorry, that’s a negative note to end on, but it’s true.

4/20. It’s a pretty good holiday. One of our favorites, if you couldn’t tell. It also happens to be KUSH Mascara’s 1st birthday, and we can think of no better way to celebrate than to add some new members to the KUSH Fam. We’re psyched to introduce you to KUSH Lash Primer, KUSH Waterproof Mascara, and 5 new shades of KUSH Fiber Brow Gel! They’re here to make sure that your lashes and brows are lookin’ their best every single day so you can do what you do best: whatever you want.

\n

Without further ado… meet the new KUSH Fam:

\n

KUSH LASH PRIMER

\n

More is more. That’s why we made KUSH Lash Primer. It delivers a double hit of weightless volume so you can dial your lash situation up to 100 whenever you want. Thickening heart-shaped fibers lock onto lashes in each direction, adding width and length for long-lasting volume that amplifies and improves the performance of your mascara. Hemp-derived cannabis seed oil conditions your lashes and keeps the formula smooth so it seamlessly builds without clumping or flaking. The weightless white formula creates a high volume, feather-light base so KUSH Mascara’s super volumizing formula and pure pigments can do their job and leave your lashes with a beautiful, intense-black finish.

\n

KUSH WATERPROOF MASCARA

\n

Sometimes you get caught in the rain. Sometimes you just need to cry for a chill hour or two. KUSH Waterproof Mascara is here for you through it all. It’s got the same good stuff as OG KUSH Mascara: volumizing heart-shaped fibers, conditioning hemp-derived cannabis seed oil, and a tapered Puff Puff Brush to catch every single lash. But this time, we added film formers that guarantee a flake-free, smudge-free, transfer-proof finish that can stand up to rain, tears, sweat, and any other wildcard situations you’re gonna be getting into.

\n

\n

KUSH FIBER BROW GEL

\n

In a dream world, we would wake up with perfect, fluffy, defined eyebrows every day. We haven’t figured out how to do that quite yet, but KUSH Fiber Brow Gel is the next best thing. And now, you’ve got 5 more shades to choose from! Tinted heart-shaped fibers adhere to your skin and hair for long-lasting fullness, shape, and definition while the conditioning, hemp-derived cannabis seed oil-infused formula provides thickness that never flakes or feels stiff. The tapered, tree-shaped brush allows you to deposit the gel evenly across your brows so they stay put and you can keep cruisin’.
