Get to Know Daniel

Q. What was your beauty routine like in high school?
A. “Ugh, I had cystic acne for most of high school and college. It wasn’t until I discovered Aveda that it changed my skin and I got into beauty.”
Q. What’s your usual morning routine?
A. “Make coffee (Cafe Bustelo is my favorite) and roll around on the floor playing with my cat, Weezy. I always read WWD, BoF, and New York Times before I head out the door too.”
Q. Who is the coolest person you’ve ever met?
A. “Michelle Yeoh.”
Q. Who is your favorite designer?
A. “Kim Jones for Dior.”
Q. What’s a fun travel story from your adventures?
A. “Besides attending my friend Meghan’s wedding, traveling down the Thames on a private yacht with Dame Helen Mirren and my client Greta Gerwig.”
Q. What beauty product are you most particular about and why?
A. “Foundation. I don’t like to see foundation as a mask on the skin so I’ll go to great lengths with someone’s skincare prep to make sure it doesn’t look like they have anything on the surface of their skin.”
Q. What’s your beauty pet peeve?
A. “Unblended face makeup. ‘Ring-around-the-jawline.’”
