The vibrancy that excludes from this beautiful and talented Actress, Lovie Simone, is like a breathe of fresh air. I met Lovie Simone while shooting on the set of the upcoming film "Monster" which is directed by the amazing Anthony Mandler. His first film directorial debut.
Her energy exudes enthusiasm and grace all wrapped in one with a bonus of a bright beautiful smile. This young lady's energy was such a pleasure to be around on set and as a bonus I truly enjoyed doing her makeup on and off the camera. Can you blame me, look at this face!
Ladies and Gents I bring to you Lovie Simone! Here she joins us at What's Your Protocol" to fill us in on her daily beauty routine and to share with us what inspires her everyday lifestyle.
L X P: So Lovie, We would love to know, What's Your Protocol? (Describe your lifestyle rules, Fashion Style & Everyday Life. What are the things you enjoy?
LS: I am in love with fashion. My fashion rules are to find yourself in clothing and never be defined by trends.
I consider myself classic. There are no rules to beauty. I find beauty in everyone.
My everyday goal is to be happy and spread positivity amongst all those I encounter. I enjoy learning new makeup techniques, reading, cooking and finding out where good food is in my city. I'm a MAJOR foodie!
