RLB: With your background in design, how do you approach your beauty look?
AA: I consider the materials, texture, color and scale of each piece as to how they are combined to either compliment, or contrast. Generally I prefer to keep each element of my “look” simple with an emphasis on shape and color.
RLB: Do you have any favorite beauty products/fragrances that you have discovered while traveling?
AA: I have been searching the world for my “signature” fragrance and am yet to find it…But when I travel I do really love to bring Clarins Eau Dynamisante Spray.
RLB: You have great hair. What do you do to keep it healthy? Do you also color it?
AA: I do deep conditioning twice a week. I have a fabulous colorist who magically makes my various shades of brown look natural!
RLB: What are some of your favorite cosmetic brands/products?
RLB: Being born in the West Indies, do you have any Caribbean beauty secrets that you still use?
AA: Smiling…and laughing…
RLB: Since you are based in the Miami area, do you have any tips on keeps hair/skin looking great in hot humid weather?
AA: Keep your hair away from your face. Washing my face twice a day with Dial Antibacterial soap…yes….good old Dial Gold Soap!!!!
RLB: What do you do for red carpet/big event looks?
AA: I prefer to showcase one element…either it is the dress, or the accessories... But the best Red Carpet look is poise and confidence!!!!! I am not a big make up person, but I will emphasize the eyes with lots of drama!!!
RLB: Are you a nail color person? If so, what are some of your new favorites?
AA:Fishnet by Essie for my high glamour moments and Au Natural by Essie for everyday.
the same time so practical combining a handbag with a drawer and the ability to change the look with additional clutches! Tell me how the idea for the bag came about, and if you will be creating additional leather goods for the line.
AA:Yes, I would love to have an ANTROBUS BOUTIQUE one day! - RLB
