As a counter manager for Lancome it is my job and my privilege to use and recommend Lancome products. That being said, I am also a loud-and-proud product junkie so since I work in such close proximity to Clinique, Este Lauder, and Elizabeth Arden counters, I have products from each line that are tried and true favorites of mine. They are as follows:
Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Make-up (Este Lauder): True to its title, this foundation doesn’t budge…not even when you are sweating your ass off…not even when you go swimming…not even when you wash your face…so be sure to have a great make-up remover, cleanser, and exfoliator on hand when you want to remove it, or else you’ll break out.
Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator (Clinique): A lightweight gel cream that keeps skin looking dewey and hydrated without being heavy. I slather this on at night over genefique serum, topping it off with advanced night repair eye cream and I wake up dewey as a newborn.
Beautiful Color Brow Shaper and Eyeliner (Elizabeth Arden): I’ve dedicated an entire post to this product before, so I’m going to say it again, I love it! The natural black is a perfect color for me, the powder is easy to manipulate and lasts throughout the day.
In this society it is completely acceptable for women to openly loathe everything about themselves. Negative comments about our bodies, our faces, and our jobs are the norm. As a Beauty Advisor, Make-Up Artist, and Cosmetics Counter Manager i am often judged by my profession. People may say that it is shallow and unimportant work but I beg to differ.
It is important for us to help each other worship the bodies and the faces that the universe has provided for us. We all have flaws, we all have self-doubts and insecurities. Bringing each other down and bringing ourselves down is accomplishing nothing.
I love my job because it enables me to help women feel confident and empowered. Every day I give women (I shouldn’t just restrict this to women, I also help men on occasion as well), I give PEOPLE tools that help them to feel better about themselves.
My point is, get out there and do something for yourself today. Whether its go for a walk, buy a new shade of lipstick, or set up a consultation at your closest cosmetics counter. Get out there and worship you and all of the wonderful things that you are!

The girls at the Sephora in the Destiny USA mall in Syracuse get a nod of recognition from me. They were extremely energetic, courteous and informative. I LOVE good customer service!
