The hilarious and talented beauty guru Kelly Peach spent an afternoon with us primping and sprucing our looks. While we chatted about Kelly’s favorite products, such as Face Stockholm picture perfect foundation, her beauty blender, Lime Crime Pink Velvetine, and Cle De Peau Concealer. We also talked to Kelly about her personal style, she admitted that her go to is always all black. Kelly makes all black look really good, with her rag and bone jeans and awesome Surface to Air heels. We love that Kelly hails from Michigan, spent some time in Atlanta and Los Angles, and that eventually Kelly and her husband decided to relocate to Portland. She admits that the change in scenery has been good for her, she loves the community here and all of the creative projects that she gets to be a part of. After her relocation two and half years ago Kelly has done New York and Paris fashion week with Oribe. We love her drive and her motivation to continue to learn and challenge herself with new techniques and products. Enjoy our photos and great interview with the fabulous Kelly Peach!

9. What is the best thing about your job?
Making people feel good about themselves and making a connection with the clients. I love hearing about people’s life stories it really is so fascinating to me.

Always mix highs and lows. Meaning really spend money on shoes accessories or must have classics. Yet, when it comes to trendier items go cheaper with it and know you might be wearing it only for one season.
