OrangeTwist — Costa Mesa
Hometown: Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Question: First things first. What was your childhood dream job?
Brett: I wanted to be a Doctor.
Q: How did you get into the aesthetics space?
B: I always knew I wanted to be in the medical field and thought I wanted to become a doctor. I graduated from college pre-med and met an aesthetic nurse practitioner and instantly thought, “That’s what I want to do!” I love beauty and of course medicine, so medical aesthetics was the perfect blend of the two things I love.
Q: What do you love most about your job?
B: I love being able to help my clients feel more confident and comfortable in their own skin. Every client is different from the next and being able to take part in the evolution of their skincare and aesthetic goals are really fulfilling, especially when clients come back excited with how things are looking! I also love meeting new people and developing long-term relationships.
Q: Favorite OrangeTwist treatment and why?
B: I am a big fan of the Clear + Brilliant treatment. It gives the most gorgeous glow and does wonders for large pores. I also really enjoy lip fillers!
Q: Favorite influencer + beauty icon and why is he/she worth following?
B: Sivan Ayla (@sivanayla). She is a young mom (like me!) but still makes time to take care of her skin, try new beauty trends, cook, and decorate! She is also adorable and has an effortlessly chic vibe!
Q: There are a ton of beauty products out there. What are your must-haves?
B: My current obsessions are the ZO Exfoliating Polish (which makes the skin feel like butter) and the Alastin HydraTint SPF (which isn’t greasy and gives nice coverage for being a tinted SPF!). I am out in the sun at the beach a lot, so finding an SPF that is breathable and sweat-proof and that has a slight tint was a game-changer for me.
Q: Favorite cheat meal?
B: Any dessert! Give me all the Tiramisu, cannolis, and bread pudding!
Q: Things you do outside of OrangeTwist?
B: I have a 4-month-old baby boy, so most of my free time is now spent spoiling him. I also love going to the beach, decorating, cooking, and cycle/spin classes.
Q: Favorite sport?
B: Football…Go, Patriots!
Q: Don’t hold back. If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?
B: I would love to go back to Spain, which is where my mom is from. I also want to go to Greece and Italy for the beautiful beaches and food!
Q: The best skincare routine
B: Drinking a ton of water! If your skin is hydrated, it will function so much better, and you will see better results from your skincare products as a result. Also, wash your makeup off every night and don’t work out/sweat with makeup on.
Q: One piece of advice you’d give to aspiring OrangeTwist employees?
B: Keep your end goal in mind, have confidence in yourself, and always keep learning!
Q: Do tell. Share with us your guilty pleasure?
B: I am addicted to HomeGoods. I love decorating and re-decorating.
