A DAY WITH CHERISH IN HARLEM

//Stylist // Mother // Wife

We had the chance to peep into the world of Cherish Cullison, stylist and mother to August , on a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon.

While multitasking by being an established stylist,  wife to a Jazz musician and mother to a two year-old boy, there is just not enough time to really experiment and play with her makeup.

Unique, politically correct, chic and outstanding partner and mom, the tribute to this world has already been made. The question that remains, is what the “contemporary” woman can do to stay beautiful and take care of herself in the fast lane?

Her space and life could easily become the canvas of a lifestyle platform and a premise for a narrative on family wellness. The idea of tranquility and moderation with a refined aesthetic guides us to an internal calmness and invites us to become even more creative than we had already planned.

With a full line up of MustaeV products, the concept was to show Cherish a day and an evening makeup look and help her achieve her #beyourself looks, based on her natural colors, in a blitz.

Being a stylist, she immediately understood that the simplicity around the ethics of MustaeV, is to make the everyday woman the artist of her own skin.

Together with Francesca, our makeup artist, they developed a color that complimented Cherish’ s skin and her choice of styling for the shoot.

With styling by Cherish and makeup by Mustaev, one can't go wrong, so we let Cherish guide our lens to discover the interesting space in her environment of books, instruments, turn tables vinyls, toys and unique decorative details.

Have you heard of the saying “Makeup is only supposed to take three minutes”? Do you live by this statement? Yes,  I have, but I don’t think I have found the way. It’s a hard balance being a professional and a mother. I have not really been using makeup, for a long time. The result is an empty boudoir and this is why I am very happy you are here to teach me a couple of fast and easy makeup tricks and tips.

Even though you do not use much makeup, every woman has a beauty trick. Whats yours? I guess staying healthy eating well and hydrating yourself plays an important role. I also believe that beauty is a state of mind and our face is the display of our emotions. So staying happy and doing things that rejoice me I believe will always keep me fresh. I like staying natural and believe that one should feel elevated when adding makeup. What we have achieved with Mustaev today and thank you all for coming, was fresh and felt great on my face and skin. Francesca, gave me the extra shine I needed with just some products and few easy tips and made me rethink and re-evaluate makeup over all.

When do you feel more at most like yourself? I find myself at ease and I am content when I am usually around family and friends. I love to have people over and curate dinners with Gab, who besides being a great dad husband and musician, is also a brilliant cook. We used to go out a lot, so makeup was key, but with little August the last two years we have become more domesticated. Its great though that we came up with two "Cherish" looks so that I can create them when I am on set or with friends when we have dinners at our place.

What makeup item do you think is a must to have? Being a woman and a stylist I believe that every woman must have her own lipstick. With MustaeV lip palette, I can make my own shade and color. There is nothing more exciting and unique than that! I also fell in love with the eye shadows and realized that a bit of silver for the day and gold for the night could really lighten me up. I am marrying both looks.
