After decades of lessons, the Mexican-born Daniela Bell turned her passion for ballet into a lucrative dance career, and she even opened her own dance company. But it was in the beauty realm where Bell would find her true calling. Today, her eponymous company, Daniela Bell Beauty, includes a luxe mink lash line, microblading brow expertise, and a loyal client list that includes Real Housewives. Below, Bell shares with us her fashion inspiration, whom she considers her style icon, and her go-to stores. Read on:

WHAT I DO
“I’m a celebrity makeup artist and the owner of Daniela Bell Beauty and Makeup Studio, where we provide permanent makeup, special occasion hair and makeup services, makeup lessons, and a luxury lash line.”

STYLE ICON 
“Olivier Rousteing has revolutionized the way fashion is marketed and personalized; his business strategies, as well as his passion, have been very inspiring to me. His style is also unique.”

ON THE JOB 
“The beauty industry is very glam, so I try to keep up with fashion trends and add my own spin. When I work, I like to be comfortable. I will sometimes combine chic sneakers with a nice blazer for a casual-cool look.”

FASHION INSPIRATION
“Dressing up is fun, and it motivates me on the days when I’m not feeling too glamorous. I’ll pop on a pair of lashes to feel more daring and put together.”

STYLE DEFINED
“Eclectic. I love dressing in monochromatic athleisure as much as I love wearing more fitted bodycon dresses. I also love a flowy dress with sneakers.”

FASHION ESSENTIALS
“My favorite Chanel lipgloss, a fragrance from Diptyque and, of course, my lashes in the travel case, just in case.”

GO-TO LOOK
“Anything chic athleisure,  with a fun blazer and open-heeled sandals.”

HOW I ACCESSORIZE
“I’m a handbag and shoe lover, so those are always a big part of my outfit.”

WEEKEND LOOK
“When I dress up more, I’ll add a pop of color in my heels and lips.”

FAVORITE STORES
“I love Neiman Marcus for important events. For athleisure, I love Aritzia and Zara, and I can always count on Nordstrom.”
