Ooo, La La!
Juggling work, kids, and a hubby who’s on the road for months at a time might make any one of us want to pull out our hair. Not La La Anthony. The former MTV VJ seems to thrive on the chaos, acting on both the small and the big screen (you can catch her in the just released Baggage Claim), creating her own cosmetic line, and chasing after a 6-year-old along with her NBA star husband, Carmelo Anthony — all while looking absolutely uh-mazing doing it!
Now, La La has teamed up with Caress to celebrate the release of its newest product, Tempting Whisper Fine Fragrance Elixir Body Wash! We had a chance to chat with the star about her partnership, her personal line, and her favorite designer (hint: there’s def more than one!).
Now if only we could look that good while being that busy!
We’d love to know more about your partnership with Caress. What made you decide to work with them?
I partnered with Caress as a Fabulista to show women how fragrance can inspire them to live fabulously every day. All year long, I share my top style and beauty tips for looking and feeling fabulous on the brand’s Facebook page — starting with fine fragrance. For me, fragrance is an essential part of any look because it sets the tone for my day, from how I feel to what I wear. The new Caress Tempting Whisper Fine Fragrance Elixir Body Wash has such alluring fragrances and has been inspiring me to wear so many hot trends this season from floral print dresses to bold pink accessories. With these tips, I want to inspire women to step outside of their comfort zone and flaunt their fabulous style confidently.
What inspired you to create your own beauty line, Motives?
I knew there was a void out there when it came to foundations and makeup for all skin tones. My goal was able to create a makeup line that works for everyone. With Motives, we were able to accomplish that.
What’s your absolute must-have beauty product from the line?
Any of the lip shines. They give your lip a gorgeous pop of color and the color selection is phenomenal. You can put one on and all of a sudden you look awake and alive. I can’t even keep them stocked in my purse because my friends are always taking them from me!
You always look camera-ready and gorgeous. Any insider beauty tips/secrets you can share with us?
Always take your makeup off at the end of each day. It’s so important to make sure you’re taking care of your skin underneath. Always use a good cleanser and sunscreen.
How would you describe your personal style?
Versatile: I can go from edgy tomboy to glam girl. It’s all how I feel when I wake up that day.
Do you have a favorite designer?
I can’t pick just one favorite designer. I love to mix designers together. For example, Top Shop, Forever 21, Zara mixed with Dolce & Gabanna, Alexander Wang, etc.!
How did you wind up getting into reality television? Is it something you enjoy, or do you ever find the cameras too invasive?
I enjoy the reality television experience. I knew what I was getting myself into when I signed up to do it. You just have to have a good balance and be able to determine what is just enough to show and what is too much to show. My show isn’t fueled by drama or messiness so I’m really able to bring a more positive side to reality television.
If you weren’t a beauty entrepreneur/TV star, what would you want to do?
If I wasn’t where I am today, I’d like to be a veterinian. I always wanted to be one growing up — I just love animals.
What’s your number one favorite thing about your job?
I love that my job isn’t a routine every day. I have something new or different to look forward to each day.
