While Phillippe was promoting her upcoming modeling job on E! News Daily Pop, she revealed what her mom told her about looking good, “Pretty is as pretty does, as pretty as you ever look on the outside, you’re only as pretty as you are on the inside and the way you treat other people. If that’s not a beauty tip, I don’t know what is.” Phillippe explained that this little piece of advice was, "Really special to me, honestly." Witherspoon has been in the public eye for quite some time, so it's obvious she knows the best way to go about being in the industry. Now, the 22-year old is beginning to dip her toes in modeling, so any guidance from her mom is beneficial.

Phillippe was chosen by Pat McGrath herself to be the face of her upcoming campaign. "I was like ...Pat McGrath is DMing me? Huh?," Phillippe described how excited she was to be offered the position through Instagram, “For her to reach out to me, of all people, and to think of me and be so generous in that process was just something else, so special.”

McGrath, whos been dubbed the "fairy godmother of makeup" by Phillippe, explained why she chose the show as inspiration for the upcoming line. “It was a real honor to see the regency era with that modern twist. It brought so much joy," she said. So, she took the show's vibe and created 3 different products. The #DowtownDebutants will include the MTHRSHP Eye Palette that holds 6 beautiful shades. The name for it was influenced by the show's first episode, it's called 'Diamond of the First Water.'
