From Instagram to Interview - Meet Deanna Paley
1. What is your Zodiac Sign?
2. What inspired you to get into beauty?
I’ve always been an artist but never super into makeup in my younger days, or saw it as a career. I met a makeup artist at MAC who was very passionate and loved what she did... she inspired me to apply for a job there and the rest is history.
3. If you were a member of the Spice Girls, which would you be and why?
I always wanted to be Baby Spice when I was younger but now I would say Sporty Spice because I can be fully glam and still rock a comfy, sporty outfit - which is what you can usually catch me in.
4. What is the first BH product you ever used?
88 Color Eyeshadow Palette!
5. What is one thing people may be surprised to learn about you?
I majored in chemistry my first year of college and wanted to go into medicine.
6. Looking back, what is the biggest beauty faux paus you’ve ever committed?
When I first started at MAC I never filled in my eyebrows until months after I worked there, and when I look back at old pictures I go... what was I thinking? Brows make SUCH a big difference.
7. What BH product can you not live without?
8. What are the top 3 songs on your get ready playlist?
1. "I Just Wanna Love U’’- Jay Z
2. "Only You’’- 112
3. "Lap Dance’’- N.E.R.D
9. If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would buy?
10. If you could only use one BH brush set for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
11. If you could have any superpower what would it be and why?
Mind reader for sure - I would love to have the ability to know what the person is actually thinking.
12. What is your favorite BH palette?
The new Zodiac palette - coming next week!
13. What is one of your most embarrassing moments?
I peed my pants in the third grade right before lunchtime while we were standing and praying (I went to a private Armenian school).
14. What do you like most about working with BH Cosmetics?
The social squad because they’re amazing and fun to work with!
