Beauty Nostalgia: Reminiscing With…Jeanine Lobell
Beauty Nostalgia is a new, weekly column on Beauty Counter in which we ask influencers, tastemakers, and some of our favorite industry experts to wax poetic on the sticks, salves, and sprays that helped shape who they are today.
The Pro: Jeanine Lobell, celebrity makeup artist
The Product: “I’ve always loved red lips. When I was 16, I had wild Louise Brooks hair and I wore a red fuchsia lip every day. I’d go flying down King’s Road in London in Vivienne Westwood clothes on my bicycle with red lips (it was quite a look)! My first obsession was a Shiseido red lipstick, which I started wearing around 1996 before I was a makeup artist. It was the first double-ended lipstick—one end was matte, the other was shiny—and it was before anyone else had that. Of course, MAC came next and now it’s not new. But at the time, my friends and I hoarded this Shiseido lipstick. What I loved about it was that it didn’t make your mouth feel tight and dry, like a lot of lipsticks can. I found it at the Shiseido counter and once I knew it was being discontinued, I stockpiled it.”
