Annamarie’s new-wave approach to beauty is refreshing and empowering, and reminds us what dressing up is really about: having fun.” —Lena Dunham, writer, director, and creator of Girls
The Daily Face explains things in a way that doesn’t make you feel stupid. It doesn’t assume you know the difference between your brow bone and your eye crease, and for that I am grateful. I am looking forward to using the techniques once I enter the Witness Protection Program.” —Amy Poehler
Annamarie’s relaxed, low-pressure approach left me feeling capable and brought back an excitement about makeup that I hadn’t felt since raiding my mom’s makeup drawer in middle school.” —Rachel Antonoff, clothing designer
