Here MiNDFOOD shares more of our exclusive interview with Carolyn Murphy, Estee Lauder spokesmodel and face of the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy lipstick campaign.
LH: Pure Color Envy is described as a classic with a modern twist, would you describe yourself as being more classic or more modern or somewhere between the two?
CM: “I define my style as classic with a slight twist. I don’t like clothes that are fussy or too over thought but still stylish and current. My style has changed only in that I don’t have loads of time to shop, so thank goodness for Net-a- Porter!”
LH: When we spoke in the early millennium, you were really into your surfing, in fact you’d just spent a long period living and surfing in Costa Rica. Do you still get out in the waves much?
CM: “I’m not surfing as much anymore because I’m trying to stay out of the sun when possible. Recently, I’ve been hiking, horseback riding and gardening because I can wear gloves, a hat and sunblock.”
LH: What lipstick shade do you envy on other women and why?
CM: “I envy the shade of burgundy on other women, as I feel it’s too harsh on me. Looks great for photo shoots but in daily life, I feel a bit overdone. When I see a woman wearing a burgundy lip, I feel that she is daring and strong in her character.”
