ALEX MERRELL, DJ, Entrepreneur, and Founder of the TREC App // @alexandramerrell
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR CAREER? I moved to L.A. when I was 19 to work in music management and learned to DJ as a hobby until it turned into a full-time job.
WHY DO YOU LOVE THIS LIPSTICK? Imperial Red is not a lip color for the timid. It speaks to my desire to live boldly, be fearless, have fun, laugh hard, love harder, and always push myself to be better.
WHY IS THIS YOUR GO-TO SHADE OF LIPSTICK? A red lip is a great conversation starter and I find that it attracts people with a sense of humor and adventure. It’s rare to see a girl in red lipstick in the corner not having any fun.
TELL US A FASCINATING FACT ABOUT YOURSELF! My app TREC is launching this year and I couldn’t be more excited! We’ve created a social media platform that connects travelers based on their current city as well as when they’re planning future trips, and helps them navigate new cities with guides curated by their social circle.
WHAT’S THE BEST BEAUTY ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED? Drink lots of water, eat well, stay active, and get enough sleep. Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than health and happiness.
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE IN THREE WORDS. Classic, feminine, playful.
TEMPTU Color True Lipstick in “Imperial Red,” $24.00.
