Meet the Staff: Brienz
Department: Customer Service :)
About Me: I am an explorer, an adventurer, a seeker, a finder. I love reading and music and drinks with friends, getting dolled up and getting grimy. I am always excited about tomorrow and making the best of today. I love problem solving and information gathering, and I’m always happy to help!
Personal beauty motto or beliefs: Pretty is as pretty does.
Skin type: Very sensitive!
Hair type: My hair is fine and curly, but very thick.
Beauty concerns: Patches of dry skin, very sensitive skin, controlling the curls.
What’s in your makeup (or beauty) bag?: Pur Big Look Mascara, Pur Minerals Wake-Up Brow Pencil, gloMinerals Graphic Liner, G.M. Collin Sensiderm Cream.
What's in your shower?: Sircuit Skin X-Trap Daily Gentle Cleanser
Can’t live without product(s): I cannot live without a good moisturizer, and I have fallen madly in love with the Sircuit Skin X-trap Cleanser.
Are you a product junkie?: My skin is pretty sensitive, so it's a bit tricky for me to switch products too often. I like to find a good cleanser and moisturizer and stick with them. Make-up, however, is a BLAST to try. I'm very laid back and low maintenance (when it comes to hair/skin/beauty care, anyway), so I don't wear very much make-up most of the time. But I love eye and lip products and buy them shamelessly. I find it's all about simplicity...but I never remember that when I'm shopping!
Favorite Brand(s): Sircuit Skin is my favorite so far, but as I hear more from customers, I want to try more!
Favorite Celeb Beauty: Thandie Newton, Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, and Michelle Rodriguez. These women are (obviously) incredibly beautiful, but also fearless and confident. There is nothing more beautiful than knowing who you are and owning it.
Product(s) you want to try next: Pur Glisten & Glow and Pur Lip Gloss Sticks. I love illuminating sticks! They add dimension without needing a ton of product or a ton of work. And I find chubby sticks the most laid back way to do color on lips - not the heaviness of lipstick or the stickiness of gloss, just a touch of color to perk up my look. I'd also love to get to investigate our curly-specific products to see if they can tame my mane. ;)
Since working at beautystoredepot, I've learned...: So much. I have to admit that I came into this industry with horribly out of date knowledge. Skin and hair products have become MUCH more eco- and skin-friendly, using organic ingredients that are meant to work with our bodies rather than try to exert force against them. Makeup companies are using fewer dyes and bleaches and are focusing on healthy ways of making us feel beautiful. We carry some of the most forward thinking lines in the industry, and it's an honor to get to hear and see and talk about what they're doing well already and what they're developing!
