Tim Quinn Interviews With Marta Walsh

Few weeks ago I was given an incredible chance to chat with Tim Quinn over the phone. Tim Quinn is Giorgio Armani’s Celebrity Face Designer National Director, Creative Artistry.

I met Tim in New York City during my trip with this past July (2009). The meeting was in Pastis one of my favorite restaurants to hang out when I used to live in New York City. As soon as I was introduced to Tim during breakfast I knew I had to interview him and share with you his beauty insights and story of top celebrity makeup artist. As you can sense, I’m a huge fan. I remember telling him that I loved his style and that he looks “Very Armani”: That very pale almost platinum blonde hair, and the chic eye glasses. Believe it or not, Mr. Giorgio Armani himself set a table next to me in Cipriani Downtown SOHO few years ago, so I got to know the look:)

Tim Quinn and Kerry Washington

A little bit about Tim Quinn: After training in Milan alongside world-renowned makeup artist Pat McGrath, Tim Quinn joined the Giorgio Armani Beauty team with the launch of the brand in September 2001. His myriad experience as an artist includes work in TV, print, and film. Tim has been featured as one of the “25 Beauty Stars” in W Magazine and has worked backstage at several award shows including the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes. Tim has worked with a number of celebrities such as Glenn Close, Debra Messing, Victoria Beckham, Kim Cattrall, Gwen Stefani, Kate Bosworth, Minnie Driver, and Brooke Shields. He has designed faces for Helen Mirren, Julia Roberts, Naomi Campbell, Katie Holmes, Sarah Jessica Parker, Barbara Walters, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore.  I might even missed few names!

Marta Walsh: When did your fascination with beauty begin?
Tim Quinn: From as far back as I can remember I was drawn to the world of fashion and beauty. I was born and raised in the countryside of Connecticut and was always encouraged by my parents to go outside and play – TV was only for special occasions and the internet was still years away, so my siblings and friends would create our own worlds of entertainment. My paternal grandmother was widowed rather young and she remarried an attorney from New York. They lived in New York City during the week and at her country home in Litchfield, CT on the weekends. My visits and travels with them truly influenced my young mind – I thought of her life as my very own ‘Green Acres’. I became a glamour addict – watching her dress for dinner in NY, DC and even Iceland – the whole idea of the hair, makeup, jewelry and furs created such a glamorous world that was so different then the life I knew in Connecticut.
