7 Things I Learned From Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Makeup Master Class

Long before Rosie Huntington-Whiteley founded her namesake beauty website, Rose Inc., she was a personal beauty muse of mine. I love her skin-first, makeup-second approach. I love the way she's not afraid to play with bright colors and bold shapes yet always keeps the end result looking high-end and editorial. What can I say? Whiteley is (along with other celebs, like Lily Collins, Emma Stone, Emma Watson, and Shay Mitchell) a major source of makeup inspiration for me.

That's why I was overjoyed to attend Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's makeup master class in partnership with BareMinerals (for which Whiteley is a brand ambassador) and celebrity makeup artists Katie Jane Hughes and Nikki DeRoest. Throughout the class, which took place in a nondescript yet trendy Hollywood studio, I did my due diligence, scribbling down each bit of brilliance that came my way—and trust me when I say there were many.

After the class, I had the opportunity to interview Whiteley, one-on-one, about her favorite beauty tips, her go-to products, New York versus L.A. style, and more. Keep scrolling to see everything (and I mean everything) I learned from the experience.
