I RECENTLY SAT DOWN
WITH MAKEUP EXTRAORDINAIRE
RAE MORRIS AND QUIZZED HER
ON WHAT SHE’D DO
WITH A POST ONE NIGHT STAND FACE.

There are some perks to being a Professional Babe, like telling my Tinder matches that being a Professional Babe is my job title, the free loot (free panties!) and awesome people that I’m able to meet.

The most recent being Rae Morris at the Priceline beauty prescription event. When I found out I had the privilege of interviewing someone I look up to in the beauty industry I died a little on the inside and knew exactly what I was going to ask her…

POST ONE NIGHT STAND MAKEUP TUTORIAL
– WITH RAE MORRIS

PB: WE RECENTLY PUBLISHED AN ARTICLE CALLED THE MORNING AFTER MAKEUP TUTORIAL AND YOU INSPIRED IT! I REMEMBER IN YOUR FIRST BOOK YOU HAD ONE OF YOUR MODELS SLEEP IN HER MAKEUP AND YOU REMADE HER FACE THE NEXT DAY.
RAE: Yep! Best eyeliner trick in the world.
PB: WE’VE ALL BEEN IN THIS BOAT BEFORE, WHERE WE STAY OVER AT SOMEONE’S HOUSE AND HAVE A SUPER EARLY MORNING AND YOU’RE DATING MEN WITH MINIMAL BATHROOM CONTENTS, WHAT’S A GIRL TO DO?!
RAE: Plant it in the bathroom the night before!
PB: PARDON?!
RAE: Plant it in the bathroom the night before, that’s what I would do.
PB: WAIT? IS THAT WHAT YOU WOULD DO? BECAUSE I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR THIS FROM A MAKEUP ARTISTS PERSPECTIVE RAE!
RAE: I would plant things in the house. Go over the day before! Now I’d love to say you should be so self-confident that you don’t need to, but that’s not the answer! So what you need to do is get one of those little pill containers and squash in some products. I’d add some concealer, some lip gloss, some mints and I’d stash it!
PB: WAIT, WAIT. SO ARE WE BREAKING INTO HIS HOUSE?
RAE: No! When you’re there as you’ll have to go to the bathroom at least once.
PB: OH, SO WE’RE JUST HIDING STUFF IN HIS HOUSE?
RAE: Yep, just hide stuff in his house, that’s what I would do. Easy! Oh, and just make sure about the lighting. So the night before you’ve got to have candles as candles make everyone look great. Oh, go get your eyelashes tinted the day before, and you know, less is always best. You know that baked on look scares the hell out of men as the guy’s going to wake up and not know who the hell you are.
PB: YEP!
RAE: I think the biggest challenge is to not set yourself up. It’s like, how can I make myself look SO different to how I am now, so…
  1. Just play it down with him a little bit
  2. BB creams are your best friends
  3. Have some eye drops
  4. I’d also have a secret stash, but don’t go there with it trailed on because the more you’ve got on, the more you’ve got to worry about.
And when you go to dinner at his house, wear something reflective, like something shiny! Like a shiny gold or shiny silver top because it makes everyone look beautiful.
PB: SO IT’S LIKE A BIG REFLECTOR THAT YOU’RE WEARING?
RAE: Yep! And go white bed sheets, don’t go black. Well, keep it light. But you’ll be surprised at how little men actually care.

IF I COULD LOOK BACK AND SAY
ANYTHING TO MY YOUNGER SELF,
IT WOULD BE TO LOOK BETTER
WITH A LOT LESS
– JUST PULL IT BACK.

RAE MORRIS

PB: AGREE.
RAE: But if you put less on, you have less to worry about and remember to plant it in the house!
PB: LET’S JUST SAY, OF ALL THE THINGS I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO SAY, THAT’S NOT ONE OF THEM. I JUST LOVE IT.
RAE: But put it in pill boxes, so it looks like you’re taking vitamins. So some concealer, gloss and mints – mints are really important!
PB: WELL THANK YOU! I MIGHT SEE IF WE COULD GET SOMEONE TO TAKE OUR PICTURE…
RAE: We can just do selfies if you like?

Xx

SHH! Just quietly… the interview stopped and post selfie taking session, Rae shared that you can also stash some products underneath the mattress on your side of a bed. This woman is a thinker and definitely a Professional Babe!

Thank you, Priceline Australia for giving me the opportunity to meet Rae. And thank you to Rae for taking the time to chat to me X
