Actress Courtney Halverson Shares Makeup Chair Secrets
Everybody has a story about beauty. In Rose Inc.’s The Profile, some of the world’s most intriguing people share theirs. In this intimate interview series, we get (virtually) up close and personal to explore their definitions of beauty and path to self-confidence. Featuring imagery shot through their own lens, The Profile presents these compelling personalities in a new light—one that illuminates their own journey, dreams, and desires while highlighting their unique relationship with beauty.
When asked for tips and tricks from the professional makeup chair, actress Courtney Halverson first sets the stage. “I’ve worked on a lot of horror films and thrillers, so oftentimes the makeup my characters’ wear is either minimal...or else a bit gory,” she explains. “So I may not be the best person to ask!” Still, her professional range — she’s also a blogger with a cinema-inspired eye — provides a wealth of beauty knowledge. “On the rare occasion I get to play a character who looks their best, I always ask a lot of questions in the makeup chair,” she says. Spoiler alert: She shares her tricks for faking fresh makeup and creating a natural flush ahead.

Born and raised in Orange County, California, Halverson has been acting since childhood — you may have seen her in True Detective, Criminal Minds, or Unfriended — and blogging for a decade. “My first job-job was working at a secondhand shop,” she says. “I was a buyer of vintage and new clothing for a while, and then opened my own Etsy shop of vintage reselling, and that’s why I started taking photos of myself.” This led to blogging which led to her love of all things beauty and now she balances it all from Los Angeles.

"It wasn’t until I was older that I began to embrace all of the things I used to hate…"

"I like to put a small amount [of blush] on the tip of my nose to give a natural flush."
