One person. Many passions. One world.
That is who we are, and this is what we wanted to discover about Valentina Cabassi: we wanted to enter her universe made of beauty products, with which she creates simple makeup looks, effortless outfits that transcend trends, and cinema, a lot of cinema. Of cult scenes from Quentin Tarantino‘s movies, of feeling good inside to see yourself beautiful even on the outside, and of many other elements that make Valentina a movie to watch all in one breath.
Chapter after chapter.
How would you describe your relationship with cinema?
It’s a relationship based on great admiration. To me, watching a movie is like admiring a work of art, studying its colors, its shapes, every single part of it, and the emotions it triggers.
If you could go out to dinner with three people from the world of cinema (both from the past and from the present times), who would they be?
Quentin Tarantino, Paolo Sorrentino, Jean Reno (in “Leon”).
What keeps you in your bed?
A TV series that I like.
What makes you get out of bed?
What’s the movie that you have watched more times?
“Kill Bill” and “Kill Bill: Volume 2.”
What’s the last thing you found out about yourself?
During our latest lockdown, I discovered my ability to adapt to unpredictable circumstances. I’m usually not a very flexible person, when I have a plan, I must stick to it.
What’s your relationship with color, both fashion- and beauty-wise?
I’m a fan of neutral colors and simple looks. As for outfits, I prefer black or white, but I like the idea of “a pop of color,” just mascara, but with red lipstick, jeans, and a white t-shirt, but with a pair of colorful shoes.
How would you define your style in one word?
What’s your favorite texture when it comes to makeup and skincare?
I absolutely love glitter, but it’s quite impractical for everyday looks, so I’d choose matte textures. As for skincare, I’m always looking for light but super hydrating lotions, I have very dry skin.
What does “feeling comfortable in your own skin” mean to you?
It means feeling good inside, on a psychological level it helps me see myself looking better on the outside than on the inside. I’m comfortable when the two sides are well-balanced, I think they’re complementary.
