Alluring Interview with MUA Heather Balaam

In this month's Alluring Interview, we are featuring  Heather Balaam, a makeup artist from Orange County, California. She shares with us her favorite beauty secret, her most forbidden moment in a golf cart and her most recent proudest career accomplishment at the Super Bowl.

42 DUBONNET: Tell us about you.

HEATHER: My name is Heather Balaam and I am a freelance makeup artist from Orange County California. I find my inspirations daily from my children and my family. The beautiful scenery California and culture gives me life and pushes my art.

42 DUBONNET: What is your proudest career accomplishment?

HEATHER: Some of my proudest career moments are a Super Bowl event with Taylor Swift, a magazine cover with Brody Jenner, and my daily clients who believe in me and my talents and art.

42 DUBONNET: What’s one secret you learned when you started wearing / doing makeup?
HEATHER: OOOOHHH! One of my favorite secrets actually has nothing to do with makeup but with everything you do before that! Drinking water, washing your face and eating healthy foods. Clients continually come to be with concerns and how makeup can cover them. Makeup can definitely help but keeping up on healthy habits will give your makeup the best base. 

42 DUBONNET: What’s one of your secrets for how you do your own makeup?

HEATHER: Less is more! And Brows are most important.  

42 DUBONNET: What’s one of the juiciest secrets you’ve ever been told?

HEATHER: Pleading the Fifth.

42 DUBONNET: What’s one thing you’re curious about?

HEATHER: Special FX Makeup. It is something I have a limited amount of knowledge and skill in. I think it would push my creative abilities.

42 DUBONNET: What’s the most forbidden thing you’ve ever done?

HEATHER: Hmmmmm.... I think stealing a golf cart and riding all around on a golf course past midnight. Well that's my most known forbidden thing I have ever done....

42 DUBONNET: What’s your favorite look to create?

HEATHER: I love to create looks of perfected beauty. Taking ones natural features and perfecting them, steering the eye towards the natural beauty in everyone.

42 DUBONNET: What’s one secret for creating this look?
