Team Zoe’s Joey Maalouf Chats Hair And Beauty With Crows’ Feet, Cupcakes, and Cellulite

{by} Sasha | Crows' Feet, Cupcakes, and Cellulite

This past weekend beauty guru Joey Maalouf was a hot item at Dallas Galleria’s Beauty Live event and rightfully so as he’s one of Hollywood’s hottest stylists! When Joey’s not busy being go-to stylist and BFF to Rachel Zoe, he’s in high demand to help get celebs red carpet ready and has first-hand knowledge of the latest beauty buzz.  So as Savvy Texas Magazine’s Beauty Editor, I was thrilled to sit down with him and pick his brain on a bevy of hair and beauty topics, including Rachel Zoe’s infamous, signature waves. Here’s our beauty-packed Q&A:

Crows’ Feet, Cupcakes, and Cellulite: Joey, your job is a dream job! How did you first get into hair and makeup?
Joey Maalouf: I grew up in a household of hair and makeup. It ran in my family. My dad’s youngest brother was a hair stylist and my mom’s sister owned a barbershop. And my three older brothers are all in the industry. My first childhood memory is of my brothers dressing my younger sister up and playing photo shoot (laughs)!

CCC: And you immediately knew then it was your calling?
JM: I just think it [his profession] chose me. I remember the first time I did someone’s makeup. I was fifteen years old and I was like ‘oh, this is it!’ It was the beginning of my career.

CCC: So what’s a typical “day in the life” of Joey Maalouf? I envision non-stop glamour and cutting-edge beauty and fashion. Details, please!
JM: It’s normal to me so it’s funny that you say that (he laughs), but definitely my whole life revolves around hair and makeup and clothes, celebrated people and red carpet events. It’s fun and feels totally natural.

CCC: Sort of like an off-duty doctor constantly gets asked for medical advice, do you get hit up all the time for hair and makeup expertise?
JM: For sure (laughs)!

CCC: Ok, I’m going to try to restrain myself from asking what you think about my hair!
JM: It’s like, people say to me ‘I just got my haircut…what do you think of it’ and then I’m like‘ummm, let me go get my scissors.’ And then I’m hacking away at their hair.

CCC: Regardless of age, what’s the biggest makeup mistake women make?
JM: When they look at a photograph they love, they don’t take it as an inspiration, they take it literal. So if you want a crazy cat-eye, like the Burberry ad, which is on a ten-year-old model, that look can actually look amazing on you, you just have to tweak it to make it work for your face, your hair color, and eye color. You definitely have to wear makeup with confidence and I think a person should wear nothing if they don’t know what they’re doing versus going over-board and doing too much. Edit everything down! So, wear four pounds of mascara but nothing else and you’ll look amazing.

CCC: Any other makeup or hair don’ts we gals need to stop committing?

You have got to try the Tarte 100% Cold Pressed Maracuja Oil!  I love it!  It really helps to hydrate the dryer spots and control the oily spots and is for night use.  My skin has seen a major improvement since adding this to my skin care regimen!

I absolutely love this!  Joey gave great advice and I got a few new tips!  I also agree with face oil is for everyone!  I have adult acne and using an oil everyday helps to control the oily spots and hydrate the dry spots!
