5 Minutes 5 Questions: Diana Richardson

I worked with a lot of people in 2013 for the launch of my book. One in particular has been my go-to since then and I’m grateful to call her my friend. Her name is Diana Richardson and she’s an awesome makeup artist and she just launched her own website.

Follow her on Instagram: dianarichardson123 and don’t forget to ‘Like’ her page on Facebook: Diana’s Artistry.

Here is 5 minutes/5 questions with the sweet, kind and talented Diana Richardson:

1) How long have you lived in Vancouver? 

I have lived in Vancouver for almost 3 years now.

2) What is your favorite makeup product and why?

My favorite makeup product would have to be a beauty oil. Beauty oil’s are essential for our skin and will enhance the look of make up application significantly. Beautiful make up starts with beautiful skin!

3) When did you start doing make up? 

I’ve been doing makeup for 2 ½ years

4) Tell me about your favorite characteristic of a person’s face and why.

My favorite characteristics on a person’s face would have to be their eyes. Eyes are the “Mirror of the soul.” You want the main feature on your face to “sparkle.”

5) Name three characteristics (in no particular order) on your Love List?

Sense of humor. You can never get bored with someone that will flirt and make you laugh 🙂
Romantic. I love a guy that will go out of his way to make me feel appreciated. It’s so important to keep the romance alive!
Intelligence. A guy with looks is great, but a guy with brains is even better. You don’t want an idiot trying to guide you in life!

Dolch Designs aka IMPAPER.CO

There is a definite theme emerging on my blog right now….art. Coming up in the next few weeks, I’ll be showcasing some great artists (emerging and established) and I can’t wait (there is something that makes me smile about great design)! Plus, it will give you the excuse to exchange those tacky office prints (or dated Children’s artwork)  for something modern and inspirational.

Dolch Designs is a company created by two current university students specializing in typography and graphic art prints. First of all, they are in school. I know I wasn’t running my own business while studying – I was folding jeans at the Gap.

And second – it’s great art. Sure you can get something massed produced  at your local Chapters or IKEA, but it’s always nice to know that you are purchasing something unique/limited (custom orders are available). As an aside – you get the prints in the mail (I love getting mail!) which is always a nice treat.

Here is a promo code so you can get 20% off your entire purchase: elenam
