Ingrid Nilsen gets flirty with a floral dress at the 2014 Beauty Block Party presented by COVERGIRL And MTV held at Boulevard 3 on Thursday night (August 21) in Hollywood.
Ingrid will be sharing behind-the-scenes photos on our official Instagram this weekend of her getting ready and heading to the red carpet and JJJ can’t wait!
We spoke with Ingrid ahead of her takeover and got the scoop on her YouTube career, new partnership with COVERGirl and more. Check it:
JJJ: Who are you most excited to see at the VMAs? Did you ever think you’d be attending?
Ingrid Nilsen: I am most excited to see Taylor Swift and Beyonce because I love Taylor and Beyonce is just always epic with her performance. It’s pretty crazy that I’m going to be at the VMAs this year because I never expected to actually be at the VMAs! It’s just so cool that something I’ve watched every year of my entire life since I was a kid… I can’t believe I get to be there in real-life now. I’m super excited to share the experience with Becky G., and I know we’re both so excited!
JJJ: What does your role as CoverGirl’s Glambassador mean to you? Did it open up so many more doors?
IN: Being COVERGIRL’s #Glambassador is really meaningful to me because I grew up as a tomboy and I really wasn’t into anything girly but I always looked up to COVERGIRLs because they had their own unique style and personality and COVERGIRL really embraces that. I thought that was sooo cool and just always wished that one day I could find that confidence within myself. It has opened up so many doors already and I have just started my role as a #Glambassador. Just being able to go the VMAs is such a huge thing, so I’m so excited for everything else to come.

JJJ: There are so many vloggers out there right now. Do you have a favorite up and comer?
IN: There are A LOT of people on YouTube! One of my favorite beauty vloggers who started not too long ago, her name is Carrie Rad…that’s her YouTube channel, and I think she’s just awesome. She has cool style and she’s just so sweet and I think that everything she does is just amazing. I look forward to every video she posts – she’s just an awesome girl!
JJJ: Back To School season is among us. What items should guys and girls have in their closets/makeup bag?
IN: I know people are trying to figure out what they should have for back to school, and for guys and girls I think it’s always a good thing to have a good cologne, perfume, body spray or deodorant because you have long days at school, and I know that I had to rely on “the body spray” shower especially after P.E. Girls, also get a good powder – the Ready, Set Gorgeous Powder from COVERGIRL… that’s going to be your BFF. Keep that in your makeup bag, and blot away any shine.
JJJ: What makeup trend do you think is here to stay?
IN: A makeup trend that is here to stay, and never really left – the red lip! It’s been around for a long time and I don’t think it’s going anywhere!
JJJ: What celeb’s style are you obsessed with right now?
IN: I am so obsessed with Emma Stone’s style right now! She has impeccable street style, she’s really cool and sleek, but still feminine. Her red carpet style is awesome. I love how she’ll do really modern things, and still again it looks feminine. I love how she’s not afraid to wear color and just experiment with different things. Emma Stone is just one cool chick.
JJJ: If you could invent your own doughnut flavor, what would it be?
IN: It would be a chocolate hazelnut donut. Chocolate hazelnut is one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations, and combine that with my favorite food? It would be heaven on earth.
Ingrid is also pictured at the launch of her role as COVERGIRL’s official Glambassador at The Grove late last month.
