PR: You’ve sat in many a makeup chair – have you picked up any amazing tips along the way?
LIVIA PILLMANN: Yes, I picked up so many tips along the way. I always try to learn new tricks from the make-up artists.
Here in Japan the make-up artists always give you a face massage before starting the makeup, which makes your face relaxed and fresh. I think they should do massages everywhere else in the world!
Another thing what I picked up here that Japanese people spend the same time to put on the makeup and to remove their makeup and hydrate the face.
