International Women's Day with the EM Team

International Women's Day with the EM Team

Celebrating female empowerment this International Women's Day with the EM team! We are proud to be female-founded with a team of majority women. Here in the office and in our EM community, we provide a space for women to learn, express, and thrive! 

Get to know some of the women on the EM team!   

 

WHICH FEMALE DO YOU ADMIRE OR LOOK UP TO AND WHY (COULD BE SOMEONE YOU KNOW)? 

Naoko Takeuchi. The creator of Sailor Moon. I was inspired by her career as a manga artist, and wanted to follow into her footsteps. She’s the reason why I got into astrology and anime. She’s still my hero! 

 

BASE ON YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE, WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE OTHER WOMEN?

Protect your energy. If you have more empathetic traits, just know that you can be a magnet to those who want to deplete your energy. I had to learn to look for red flags and be honest with my own feelings when I’m navigating relationships (friendship, work, family, romantic) and be an advocate for myself. 

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVORITE EM PRODUCT AND WHY?  

My current favorite product is So Soft Blush in Baby. If I have a no makeup day, just adding Baby on my cheeks gives me that extra oomph! 

 

WHICH FEMALE DO YOU ADMIRE OR LOOK UP TO AND WHY (COULD BE SOMEONE YOU KNOW)? 

My daughter, Charlotte. She's smart, confident and passionate. :)

 

BASE ON YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE, WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE OTHER WOMEN?

Put yourself first so you can be the best version of yourself to your loved ones.

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVORITE EM PRODUCT AND WHY?  

Daydream Cushion: This cushion does it all. It's a lightweight skin-like base, has SPF and gives my skin a healthy glow!

Pick Me Up Mascara: This is the perfect everyday mascara for me! It gives me volume and separation and does not smudge or flake all day. The ease of removal keeps my lashes healthier.

 

WHICH FEMALE DO YOU ADMIRE OR LOOK UP TO AND WHY (COULD BE SOMEONE YOU KNOW)? 

Several women come to mind; friends, acquaintances and coworkers who are so open-minded and non-judgemental, and at the same time supportive. I value these qualities so much because I can always be my true self around them.

 

BASE ON YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE, WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE OTHER WOMEN?

Don’t stress out over not knowing exactly what you want in your career. Think about the top few things that are important to you (creatively challenging? Short commute? Money? Work/life balance?) and seek our roles that fulfill them.  As for the stuff that is missing from your work life, you might find that you can fill those holes in your personal life.

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVORITE EM PRODUCT AND WHY?  

My current obsession is the Heaven’s Glow blush in the shade Baroque – I like to call it my “Sunday blush” because it gives the most subtle pink, healthy glow that makes me look like I got a full night of beauty sleep. = )

WHICH FEMALE DO YOU ADMIRE OR LOOK UP TO AND WHY (COULD BE SOMEONE YOU KNOW)? 

My mom! She raised 4 kids and made it look easy. Now she is always there to give advice or just to listen.

 

BASE ON YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE, WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE OTHER WOMEN?

Stay true to your own beliefs/goals and cultivate and nurture your female friendships.

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVORITE EM PRODUCT AND WHY?  

I'm obsessed with our Heaven's Glow Radiant Veil Blush in Faded Clementine. It gives the perfect sun kissed look.

 

WHICH FEMALE DO YOU ADMIRE OR LOOK UP TO AND WHY (COULD BE SOMEONE YOU KNOW)? 

The top 3 women in my life are my grandma, my mom, and my sister. My grandma is turning 90 years old this year, and she is still going strong! She is very independent, exercises every morning, and she always takes initiative. She is not afraid to speak up her mind! My mom is the most selfless person I know. My mom is a giver, which she has showed me the power of giving without obligation. She has taught me to be more patient; and she helps me see the beauty and joy in the little things in life. My sister is my best friend, who inspires me to be a better person overall. She reminds me to know my worth and to strive towards my goals. 

 

BASE ON YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE, WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE OTHER WOMEN?

When in doubt, never give up. Don't be afraid to ask for help, stand up for yourself, and voice your opinions. Your thoughts and feelings are valid. As you chase your dream, don't forget to lift and empower other women along the way.

 

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVORITE EM PRODUCT AND WHY?  

Cosmic Pearl in Luna - This shade has the perfect finish for a pop of metallic on my lids. I've received a lot of compliments on it! 

Morning Dew - It's a holy grail lip product. I love how juicy and hydrated my lips look and feel. 

 

 

WHICH FEMALE DO YOU ADMIRE OR LOOK UP TO AND WHY (COULD BE SOMEONE YOU KNOW)? 

A female I admire is my friend Jessica Vu. I admire her attention to detail when it comes to her craft and work. When she puts her mind to something she fully carries and see it through.

 

BASE ON YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE, WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE OTHER WOMEN?

Don’t be afraid to be outspoken, confident and honest in your decisions and words. The power you hold by being honest and true to yourself is something that no one can take away. It doesn’t make you weak, it makes you so powerful to be able to hold onto your truth, whether that’s through words or actions.

 

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVORITE EM PRODUCT AND WHY?  

My favorite product from EM is our Fine Liner Brow Pencil. I love that the unique shape of the tip allows the user to be able to draw brow hairs flawlessly.

 

WHICH FEMALE DO YOU ADMIRE OR LOOK UP TO AND WHY (COULD BE SOMEONE YOU KNOW)? 

Growing up I always looked up to my mom, like most kids do, but as I've gone through my own tribulations I have a deeper understanding and appreciation of the strength in her kindness.

 

BASE ON YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE, WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE OTHER WOMEN?

Some advice I would share is to get to know yourself! Whether it's picking a school, a career, or a partner, it's important to figure out what your own wants and needs are. It's easy to get caught up in the pros and cons, but ultimately it's about what works for you!

 

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVORITE EM PRODUCT AND WHY?  

The moonbeam cushion in Aura because it gives the most amazing glow! And the cushion compact makes it so easy to apply in the mornings!

 

Uplift, support, and empower the beautiful women around you! That is how magic is made.
