Reminiscing With…Makeup Artist Jenna Menard
Beauty Nostalgia is a 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: Jenna Menard, Clinique’s Global Colour Artist
The Product: “Scents can quickly take you back to a time and place. One that does it for me instantly: Crabtree & Evelyn Nantucket Briar Bath & Shower Gel. It brings back my whole childhood. My mom was a hairstylist and was obsessed with not only my hair looking good but smelling good. Every once in a while, she would break out this shower gel and wash my hair with it. She’d always tell me: ‘It smells better than shampoo, and it won’t hurt your hair if you use it every once in a while.’ To this day, the scent brings back memories of her washing my hair in the salon in our basement. From time to time, my mother gives me a bottle of this shower gel as a gift, and it reminds me of being a child with the best-smelling [strands] in school!
