Chantel Jeffries Opens Up On an NYC Rooftop
The model, actress, and tattoo designer (yup, she has a tattoo line!) also answered some of our burning questions about her beauty routine and her upcoming movie.
Crop Top & Brief: Redwolf PDX
What similarities are there between you and your character Fawn in your upcoming film “A Perfect Match”? Are there differences?
It’s actually really funny, because in the film Fawn and French Montana share the same agent and in real life I have one of the same agents as French Montana. Fawn and myself both share the love for social media and using them as platforms for funny skits. However, Fawn could come off as a bit of an airhead and I just like eating airheads.
Are there intersections between being a model and being an actress? What are they?
Yes, I think that when I’m modeling, I sometimes have to portray a certain character through photos. It’s sometimes harder because you don’t have the use of words.
Bra & Trouser: Músed
Who is your dream co-star?
Jennifer Lawrence. Maybe she could even play my mom because she is my “mom” in real life.
What does your beauty routine look like?
I like to start off with a clean canvas so I make sure to get enough sleep and drink a lot of water. I then do a simply make-up routine and lots of highlight.
What is the biggest beauty sin?
Eating chocolate when you know it makes you break out.
What inspired you to collaborate with Tattify for EncreNoir, your temporary tattoo line?
J’adore Paris!! My inspiration for Encre Noir was my love for the city of Paris and the Parisian culture.
Do you have any permanent tattoos of your own? What are the meanings behind them?
Yes, I have eight tattoos. My favorite one is a flower of life on the back of my neck, which is the most sacred pattern in the universe.
Something people would be surprised to know about you?
I know tons of random facts that may or may not be useful, but I know them anyways. Not really sure why.
Can you describe yourself using only emojis?
*insert goat *insert fire *insert mixtape *insert rolling eyes
Where do you get your style inspiration?
tumblr all day!!!
Any other exciting upcoming products we should know about?
I have a movie called “A Weekend with the Family” that comes out on April 1. Also, I’m in the process of re-lauching my YouTube Channel, which I’m really excited about. You could find me here: https://www.youtube.com/
