Beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. You can't put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do you hair with any sort of fun or joy if you're doing it from a position of correction.


That's why I began doing makeup in the first place: I was hoping that through helping people see the beauty in themselves, I could try and find it in me.


Life is too short to spend hoping that the perfectly arched eyebrow or hottest new lip shade will mask an ugly heart.


Soon I realized that if beauty equalled forgiveness, I was never going to be forgiven.


Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.


Another thing that's pathetic is this rule that you have to look ugly to get respect as an actress. Jessica Lange had to make herself look really bad to prove that she had amazing talent.


Yes, but everyone is beautiful to someone.


When I was growing up, the men in my life were abusive; women were the ones I ran to for comfort.


I think the responsibility lies with the fashion world as a collective. We have to demand more variety.


There are two types of people in the world: people who are passionate about things, and people who've had their passion punched, beaten, or whatever out of them.


Growing up, my ideals were Barbra Streisand, Cher, and my mom.


I'm going to insult a whole industry here, but it seems like TV is for people who can't do film. I'm not talking about actresses; I'm talking about lighting people. Lighting on TV is just so... it's sinful, it really is.


Beauty has a lot to do with character.


I spent much of my life hiding.


Today I see beauty everywhere I go, in every face I see, in every single soul.


Perfection is boring. If a face doesn't have mistakes, it's nothing.


The faces I see in the modeling industry can get dull.


I'd rather have huge success and huge failures than travel in the middle of the road.


I'm very passionate about what I do.


I also have this incredible love for women.
