Free Time Friday is our short interview series getting to the personal side of fashion industry leaders and how they spend their “free time.” This week we chat with renowned Chanel makeup artist, Kate Lee.
Based in L.A., Kate is a go-to makeup master for a slew of celebrities, including names like Anne Hathaway, Penelope Cruz and Keira Knightley. Kate is a first-pick favorite among top-tier photographers such as Annie Leibovitz, Terry Richardson and Karen Collins. Her signature style has been described as “a flawless complexion with a sultry, smoky, defined eye — an irresistible come-hither look created with an impressive array of colors.”
Thank you, Kate, for keeping our hottest celebrities looking hot and feeling sexy!
What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?
I love to walk in nature, at the beach or on the trails with my Dog Biscuit. I don’t have so much of it these days, so when I do, I make it count!
What do you do to find calm during the crazy-filled fashion days?
I try to live my life in day-tight compartments. A deep breath and returning to the present usually helps.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Facials with Faith Taitrow and Korean body treatments. I Love having my skin feel super clean and smooth.
What was your last indulgence?
Rhubarb crumble…. For breakfast!
What are you doing this weekend?
This weekend I will be with the beautiful Anne Hathaway, prepping for The Oscars.
