Meet Mary Beth York, creator of MB York “Beauty Ammo”.  Having been born in Chicago, Mary Beth moved to Arizona when she was 19 years old.  Mary Beth has worked with stars from all over the nation, including “Dancing With the Stars”.  Her Makeup Kits, used on the sets of shows like “Desperate Housewives”, “One Tree Hill” and many other popular shows, are often referred to as “Hollywood’s Secret Weapon”.  Read how this fashionista and stylist answered these 20 fun questions.

I was born…

in Chicago, Il.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is dry, dehydrated skin (my path to fame and fortune!).

I’m listening to…

Pandora shuffle on my iPhone on the plane…Queen, Elton John, Uncle Cracker, Leonard Cohen, Foster The People. My daughter is making fun of me.

My family…

is so competitive we wear helmets when we play ping pong.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

President Obama. I would like to talk to him about changing the government food pyramid. Bill Clinton has gone vegan after learning the benefits of giving up meat and dairy products. From the health issues, animal abuse, and environmental stand point, going vegan is the real Inconvenient Truth. It is a political issue.

One thing I cannot live without…

is my “Pump it up, Leave it on Collagen Eye Mask”.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a clothing designer. I still do and will! My ROCK YOUR TUBE dress is one of many fun garments to come!

I’m inspired by…

Joel Osteen. I am obsessed. I try to get my family to watch church on tv with me but usually they won’t. I like watching the services later on my computer, and sometimes while doing yoga. It is always so inspiring!

The one person who motivates me is…

Gabrielle Bernstein. I love her books and especially Spirit Junkie. Also love her “Add More -ing to your Life, A Hip Guide to Happiness.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

the government food pyramid. As a vegan, animal activist and environmentalist I would eliminate meat. In my screenplay, Survival of the Prettiest, my BEAUTY AMMO KIT saves the world with my vegetarian message and in the end I change the government food pyramid.

The perfect day would be…

shopping at the Lumber Yard in Malibu, spa treatments, and dinner on the beach.

My first job was…

teaching aerobics at Chicago Health CLub. I also started an aerobic after school business at my all girls Catholic high school and had 240 girls sign up.

My favorite escape…

is the SANCTUARY! Sitting in my casita there now and there is no greater view than the one out my window!

My life…

is like a movie. I am the writer, director, and star. Therefore the happy ending is a foregone conclusion.

I’m currently working on…

my make up book, the BEAUTY SURVIVAL BIBLE, my movie, SURVIVAL OF THE PRETTIEST, and my ROCK YOUR TUBE dress, as well as expanding my distribution of my BEAUTY AMMO make up and skin care line.

Always…

dream big and think abundantly!

Never…

lose your dignity.

Favorite Quote…

As a Course in Miracles says, our greatest tool for changing the world is our capacity to ‘change our mind about the world’.

Biggest Dream…

is to have my movie be a big success spurring world wide MB YORK product sales and a vegetarian movement in the US as well as changing the government food pyramid.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

is women that talk negatively about themselves. As a make up artist I have heard almost every woman point out all of their flaws. I cringe when I hear negative comments about aging and body issues. My make up chair is a NO NEGATIVITY ZONE.
