PASSION & EXPERTISE
I’ve been with Lancôme for 6 years and in the beauty industry for 15 years with a focus on customer service, makeup artistry, and skincare.

FAVORITE MAKEUP TREND
Latte makeup!

GO-TO MAKEUP LOOK
Soft glam smoky eye with contour and highlighted facial features. Bold lashes and a matte or glossy medium-nude lip.

BEAUTY SECRETS WORTH SHARING
When I want to adjust the deepness or brightness of my lipstick shade, I like to mix it with my concealer or contour shade and apply it to my lips with a small brush. This is great if you want to slightly adjust the tone of your lipstick to match your overall makeup look or mood!

BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY
Beauty trends, techniques, and products are ever evolving and changing. Don't be afraid to try something new and remember to have fun with it! You don't have to be a makeup artist to enjoy a beauty routine. Makeup is for everyone, and that includes you!

PASSION & EXPERTISE
I’ve been with Lancôme for 15 years and in the beauty industry for 20 years with a passion for makeup artistry and skincare.

FAVORITE MAKEUP TREND
Monochromatic makeup, like strawberry girl, pumpkin spice, and latte makeup. The tones flow beautifully between the lips and face. I love a look that includes multi-use products.

GO-TO MAKEUP LOOK
A little definition, nude contoured eye with the approach of having the makeup embrace natural beauty. No-makeup look foundation application along with the freckles showing and adding a fun, bright lip as the focal point.

BEAUTY SECRETS WORTH SHARING
Mix your SPF or skin serum with your favorite foundation to create a personalized BB or CC cream. This allows you to customize your desired coverage!

BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY
Happy skin, happy makeup! Taking care of your skin is essential. Without good skin health, your makeup will not be its best.

SCIENCE Q&A
WITH DR. JOTIE


DR. JOTIE SAINI
Director of Scientific Communications, Lancôme North America

Dr. Jotie Saini has formal education and post-doctoral training in Biomedical Engineering and Drug Delivery. She spent several years working in pharmaceuticals and medical devices, and later, skincare development, which prepared her for her role here at Lancôme.

At Lancôme, Dr. Jotie is involved in the entire product journey – from working with the labs during development and testing, to communicating product science and innovation with internal teams at Lancôme, and with you, our customers. She also works with Lancôme’s expert Beauty Advisors to lend her scientific expertise while helping educate on the unique innovations of our formulas.

In what ways does Lancôme pioneer skincare innovation?
At Lancôme, our innovation starts at the ingredient level. Before we decide to add a skincare ingredient into a product, it goes through years of research to validate its efficacy and safety. We also collaborate with scientists and dermatologists at universities and institutions across the world to enhance our scientific prowess and stay ahead of new technological advances. Each product is meticulously designed and rigorously tested for efficacy and safety. We are deeply committed to eco-conscious research and the development of our products and packaging.

Can you share a memorable moment from your career?
Visiting Lancôme’s Domaine de la Rose in Grasse was a truly memorable moment. Being there made me feel proud to work for a brand that not only goes above and beyond to source the most innovative and potent natural ingredients for its products, but also lends a hand to help conserve our environment.

What are some of your favorite ingredients and why?
Vitamin C, E, and Ferulic Acid as they protect your skin from free radicals and keep it looking bright. Niacinamide for skin tone evenness, PHAs for gentle exfoliation, hyaluronic acid for hydration, and retinol and peptides for anti-aging.

Are there any skincare myths you want to bust?
• Natural doesn’t always mean good or safe. Many synthetic ingredients are made for safety and potency.
• Having a certain ingredient in a formula doesn’t mean it will perform as expected. Formulation is the art and science of making all the ingredients work together. Always look at the clinical results of the product to see what it can do for you.
• Just because it’s cold and cloudy, doesn’t mean you should skip SPF. All skin tones need SPF, even on cloudy and wintry days. Always protect your skin from photodamage.

What is your philosophy on beauty?
Beauty rituals can be therapeutic. Take a moment with your skincare or makeup routine, be with yourself and feel empowered – you deserve it!

What led you to be the Makeup Artist you are today?
I first learned about makeup from my mom, who is an artist and a painter. As an adult, I never attended cosmetology school or got any formal makeup education. I am entirely self-taught, which I see as an advantage because it means I am constantly learning and pushing myself to further hone my craft.

Can you share a memorable moment from your career?
One moment that has stuck with me for all these years is when my mentor – the queen, Dame Pat McGrath, personally called me to do her eyebrows. That may seem small but having such a trailblazing icon in our craft trust me to work on her was a real “pinch me” moment.

Who inspires you as a makeup artist?
There are so many places where I draw inspiration, whether it is from my clients, other artists in the industry, a color scheme I see on the runway, or a TikTok video on my feed. In my opinion, you can find inspiration anywhere and everywhere if you are open to finding it.

Are there any makeup myths you want to bust?
That Black Makeup Artists can only do Black Skin. To the core, we are simply artists, with diverse, unique talents and range just like any qualified artist. The color of our skin should not put us in a specified box. Instead, we should be granted opportunities that are not that of just doing black talent. We can do it all.

What is your philosophy on makeup?
Be your own kind of beautiful – customize it for you!

FAVORITE LANCOME PRODUCT

FAVORITE MAKEUP TRENDS
Soft smoky eye, natural wispy brows, and freckles!

GO-TO MAKEUP LOOK
Less is more for glowing skin. And purposeful placement. If you park your car and someone chips the paint with their car door, do you paint the entire car? You touch it up with purposeful, exact placement.

Versatility and mixing everything to create more – multi-use skincare, concealer, makeup, color, textures!

Do you, be you! It can be fun trying on a new look or a trend, but ultimately, be happy and the best version of you that you can!

FAVORITE LANCOME PRODUCT
All Lancôme skincare – I have used it for more than 40 years through all the evolution. Technology will ultimately create the next newest product by the time I’m finished writing this.

REAL CUSTOMER EXPERIENCES WITH OUR BEAUTY EXPERTS


“Rachael is AMAZING! This is her passion, and you can really see that through her work. She has such a warm and inviting personality that makes you feel extremely comfortable. She’s also extremely knowledgeable about all the products and explains what they are all doing and that is very helpful for someone like me who has no idea what anything is or much less how to wear it! I will always go to her for my makeup and skincare needs. She’s a 10 out of 10 😁”

“Wow! Dawn was absolutely amazing! She was very helpful in addressing all of my questions, helped me figure out what colors I should be in. She also helped me in how to apply my shadows to aging eyes to make them pop. She explained how to enhance those trouble areas like dark circles and suggested products that could help with those areas. I loved the virtual experience. I feel that I learned so much more from Dawn than in any of my counter experiences."

“Cosette was an absolute pleasure to speak with! Not only was she attentive to my skin care needs, but she was also knowledgeable in her recommendations to certain products that I was indifferent towards, and I loved that she was patient with me and took the time to explain the different makeup products that I was looking for. Overall, this was by far the BEST experience I’ve ever had!”

“Wilmalisse is amazing! I am beyond grateful for her help!”
