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!
