When I saw these pictures of Christina Ricci, I realized I haven’t seen her in anything in quite a while! So what has the actress been up to? According to USA Today, the actress is taking a break from the big screen, and focusing on some smaller projects….like designing makeup bags for Make Up Forever!
Nearly every celebrity has a fragrance, or dreams of one. It’s a nice revenue stream, and a even nicer boost to an already high profile.
And here’s the latest trend in beauty partnerships: one-off, limited-edition items designed by a famous face. Actress Christina Ricci has developed just such a cosmetics bag with Make Up For Ever, made of fake black leather with studs and metallic silk screening.
The tote will debut as part of the company’s nine-city Remix tour, which will teach folks how to apply the potions and powders they already own.
“I’ve been a huge fan of the brand for a long time, back when I was 17. I’ve been wearing it for a really long time. They approached me and I thought it was an incredible idea to go on the road and teach women how to use products they currently have,” says Ricci.
She lives in New York City, so her space limited and therefore, she can’t go too product-crazy. “At this point, I’ve managed to streamline. I have two big bags and and I put stuff into travel bags,” she says. “If my bathroom was big enough, I’d have enough to fill a store. I’ve always been really into it.”
So how much of a pro is she at doing her own face? “I can get to a certain point with my own makeup and then I have to sit down and let the professionals do the rest and fix my mistakes. I’ve been interested in this since I was a little girl. I’ve been fascinated with makeup and makeup products. I can do makeup but if you want me to do anything with my hair, it’s a wreck. Everyone has their thing,” she says.
Workwise, Ricci says she is “taking a break right now and looking for something great. it’s hard to be too specific because you want to be as open as possible. You never know what the next great thing is going to be.”
What was the name of that horrible TV show she was on about airplane stewardesses? It was soooooooooo bad. I really tried to like it. Poor network TV, it just sucks these days.
