Blog we've never heard of, TalkingShopping, has scored an "exclusive" interview with former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's makeup artist Amy Strozzi (the one that was paid $22,800 for two weeks of work in October). After lobbing some softballs her way (asked what makeup brands she used on Gov. Palin, Strozzi revealed it was mostly M.A.C. and Chanel), they got down to the nitty gritty:
TS: Is Governor Palin's skin just naturally flawless (as it appears on TV), and the makeup was simply used to highlight her natural beauty, or did having her makeup done really change the look of her face? AS: I have said this to just about everyone I speak to...the Governor's skin is the most beautiful skin I have ever worked with. Of course, makeup always helps to create an even canvas, but the condition of her skin was flawless. I attribute it to the clean Alaskan air, lots of fresh fish and protein, and a good fitness regime.She has God on her side, too.
