Make Up Artist, Janice Daoud

When I went to the Nordstrom Fall 2010 Trend Show I was fortunate to meet, and interview the fabulous Janice Daoud. Janice is currently a Makeup Stylist for NARS Cosmetics that travels within the states and internationally, and also works as a freelance makeup artist in the fashion and entertainment industry. Janice's skill has been seen on the runways of Marc Jacobs where she worked alongside Lead Artist, Founder, and Creative Director Francois Nars. Janice has worked with top Hollywood faces including Carmen Electra, Kim Kardashian, American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino, Essence Attkins, Usher, Supermodel Chanel Iman, Kendra Wilkinson Baskett, and The Pussycat Dolls.

The Beautiful Janice Daoud

1. What advice do you have for teens that want to break into the beauty industry?
 Do extensive research and training, Practice on yourself, your friends & your family, Have a great aesthetic sense, & most of all be passionate about your dream…never give up!

2. Where did your love for makeup come from?
From a very early age, I used to study the pages of Vogue magazine that my mother would purchase monthly. I would read each page and study the fashion and makeup then recreate the makeup looks on myself. It was also then that I discovered Francois Nars, and was inspired by his early work in the fashion world.

3. What sets NARS apart from other cosmetic lines?
NARS is for the modern and independent woman, no matter if she’s 16 or 60 years old. She is free to express herself and make a statement with no rules to follow. There are countless ways to discover who she is or who she would like to become. You can’t say the same for many other lines.
