Hi, Terri! Tell us a bit about yourself. How did you get into makeup and how did you end up working at Phoenix Cosmetics?   
Hey! I’m Terri and have recently become the Pukekohe store manager. I always enjoyed playing around with makeup when I was younger. During my high school years, I became the go-to girl when my friends and I were going out or someone needed their makeup done. I began working at Phoenix Cosmetics as my dad saw the job advertised (thanks, dad I owe you!) and became the new face of the Pukekohe store!

Q: What are you looking forward to most, being the new manager of our Pukekohe store? What are you hoping to bring to Phoenix customers?   
I am looking forward to bringing a fun and inviting atmosphere for both customers and colleagues to be a part of.

Q: What are your predictions for upcoming makeup trends for Summer 2017?  
I feel that warmer tones are coming into fashion again with a strong lip, to go with our floral season clothing.

Q: If you weren’t a makeup artist, what would you do?  
If I wasn’t a makeup artist, I would currently be taking a internship to become a personal trainer.

Q: What are some common beauty mistakes that women make?  
Common mistakes that are made by women of all ages is forgetting to make sure they comb or fill in their eyebrows. Especially when people are first starting out wearing makeup.

Q: What is your favourite makeup brush?
My favourite brush of all time would have to be the concealer brush! Due to the fact that you can use it for many different purposes and it can really get into the smaller areas around your eyes.

Meet the new face of our Takapuna Store: Patricia!

Meet the new face of our Takapuna Store!

Exciting times in Takapuna! We have inspiring new talent & artistry joining our talented team, including our new manager, Patricia. We sat down with her to ask a few questions about herself and her new job with us :)

Q: Hi Patricia! Tell us a little bit about yourself! When did you discover your passion for make-up?  

Hi There! I came to New Zealand 2 years ago, I’ve been travelling and meeting people for a while now but have recently started working for Phoenix Cosmetics! I’ve been in love with makeup for a long time now. I used to do costumes for theatre have been wanting to explore the makeup world ever since. This year my wish came true and I’m now doing makeup as my full-time job!

Q: What was it that made you so keen to work for Phoenix Cosmetics?
I love Phoenix! PINK has always been my favourite colour! Working for an NZ Cosmetics brand gives me the full kiwi experience. Also, I really like the fact that we use cruelty-free makeup, we have great techniques for perfect brows and we do personalized lashes for every client. I just love my job!

 Q: What are you looking forward to most, being the new manager of our Takapuna store?
Our store is perfect already! I just want to continue with the fabulous job of our last manager and keep giving the amazing service that we are known for.

 Q: What are your biggest goals and plans for the Takapuna store?
I want the clients to have fun, to come to our store and relax, share a nice moment with us and go out loving themselves! I believe in natural beauty, what we do here is help show how beautiful you are.

Q: You’re originally from Argentina! Did you notice any big differences between the way Argentineans approach beauty and makeup, vs the way Kiwis do?
I left Argentina 3 years ago, beauty trends have changes so much since then! In New Zealand, I do see that people love do full-on glam makeup looks! Lashes for days and perfect brows, the Kiwi woman is really coquette, AND I LOVE IT!

 Q: Based on your experience and observation, what does “beauty” mean to Argentinean women?
We are simple, we love to look pretty during the weekends but during the week we like to be more relaxed and natural.

 Q: Which product are you loving this season?
Highlighters are my faves! They give glow to the face on colder days and make you shine like a diamond on the sunny ones!

Q: Do you have any words of advice for the young, aspiring makeup artists out there?
Go for your passions! It’s never too late to start doing what you love. Once you get into this beautiful world of makeup you will be able to play and have fun every day! Explore, try and always do YOU! There is a lot of different ways to do make up, find your way and be AMAZING!
