Behind the Sticks | Episode 22: Meet Amy!

In this BTS series, we want you to get to know our small but mighty team and their favorite products! For today's episode, we're starting with our team member Amy. Amy is on our marketing team and also does product development, helping to dream up and create products that fit your makeup routine! We sat down with Amy to learn more about her top 3 favorite products when it comes to getting ready for a day of zoom calls and video meetings.


Meet Amy



"Most of my social and work life involves being on a video chat, so I want to have a look that's easy to do but stands out! Laptop cameras can wash out your face so I want products that will define my face and add some color. For definition, I love our Contour Set + Go Cheek Trios (haha that's already three products, but I'm totally counting it as one😉). This trio makes contouring soooo easy and gives me a natural-looking glow bright enough to show up on camera in 2 minutes, which is perfect when I don't have too much time to get ready.


Another product I have to use before a zoom call is my trusty Brow Pencil! I can't show up, whether it be in person or online, without my brows done and this pencil does the job every time without fail. My brow hairs can be unruly (they're long and thick in places), but the brow pencil gives them a controlled shape and the built-in brow gel sets them in place all day! No touch ups needed in-between calls.


Since I can't wear a bold lip under my face mask (I do love our BB balm and lighter shades of our Lip Glaze for hydration underneath my mask), I tend to break out a bold lip for zoom calls. My favorite is our Rome Rouge Lip Glaze. It's a beautiful glossy take on a red lip that really pops on camera. As the weather starts to get cooler, I'll switch over to our Tuscan Wine Matte Lip Crayon for a brick/wine red with a beautiful matte finish."
