It’s good to be in the boots of Patrick Foley. Much regarded as a beauty guru, just the utterance of his name is quite enough to light up your face. He wields such an influence. Working as a personal shopper on the ground floor of Barneys in Beverly Hills, his primary job is to sell $30 lipstick. And he likes it because even in times of recession, people do not feel guilty when splurging on makeup. He explains.
The 42 year old personal shopper bears the title of the resident makeup artist. Cosmetic companies are quite aware of his loyal clientele which is why they make sure to send him their new produucts at least a week in advance before they hit other stores.
The best part about Patrick is that he does not promote just one brand which is like a sigh of relief. His position allows him to cherry pick from established brands the best ones to suit your makeup needs. And if you want his expert advice, you do not get it in the middle of the department store but in his stark white studio which has Carrara marble countertops, professional lighting and complete privacy.
