Meeting the Beauty Editor
I would like to talk to you today about a very nice person I've met during this blog journey.
Her name is Paulina Soto and she is the beauty editor of Elle Mexico.
Graphic designer by vocation and color lover, she began working at the magazine exerting her career.
Paui always loved makeup and remembers that when she was a little girl, she used to wait until her mom left the house to use her huge makeup box.
While looking images for the magazine, looking the ones for the beauty section is what she liked the most. Specially thinking about how she could present them in a fun and innovative way; for example she told me, that one of her recent spreads was inspired in Mondrian and she tryed to represent his work in new ways like using nail polish.
After a while Pau left the magazine to study a degree in communication and fashion journalism as a master of fashion and always knew that if she ever returned to the magazine it would be to the beauty department.
It seems like her dream was meant to be, because when she returned the former beauty editor quit and the editor in chief Mari Paz Ocejo thought she would be great for the job!
Now that she has her dream job what Paulina likes the most apart from that "kid in a candy store" feeling she gets everyday when she receives new products to try, are the shootings where she meets many talented people, gets to explode her creativity and have fun with makeup.
Learning about the story of iconic products is also her passion, you can read her latest article about Chanel No.5 in the July issue from Elle.
Now what we all want to know her beauty tips, rules, basics, do's & don'ts and favourite products and for that you'll have to check the beauty tips section tomorrow!
I'm really happy to have the chance to meet and interview great people like Pau. I had a great time!
PS. Thanks for the card and nail polishes Pau, it was a beautiful gesture!
