Center Director + Licensed Master Esthetician
OrangeTwist — Bellevue
Hometown: Laredo, Texas
Question: First things first. What was your childhood dream job?
Eliana: When I was little, I wanted to be a marine biologist and work with dolphins and orca.
Q: How did you get into the aesthetics space?
E: I got into the aesthetic field after struggling with adult acne myself. My aesthetician literally changed my life, and I could not be more thankful for her and her mentorship. That’s when I realized I wanted to make others feel the same way.
Q: What do you love most about your job?
E: I love getting to see my clients leave the center more excited and hopeful about their face or body journey than when they first came in. It is an incredibly rewarding job.
Q: Favorite OrangeTwist treatment and why?
E: My favorite treatment would have to be Ultherapy because of how advanced the technology and the aesthetics industry combined is getting. It’s amazing to be able to actually see with an ultrasound what we are treating.
Q: Upcoming beauty trends you are most excited about?
E: I’m really excited about how much more aware we are getting about the ingredients we use in products and how it’s going to impact our planet, like our coral reefs and oceans.
Q: Favorite cheat meal?
E: Butter chicken with extra chicken and some garlic naan on the side.
Q: Things you do outside of OrangeTwist?
E: Hiking, kickboxing, and dancing with friends. I also enjoy snuggles with my kitten, who’s not really a kitten anymore, but she’s precious.
Q: Favorite sport?
Q: Interesting talent you have that most people don’t know about?
E: I’m pretty good at accents.
Q: Don’t hold back. If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?
E: I would go back to Bali because it’s the most magical place of all time. They have it all: the food, the beautiful beaches, shopping, culture, and the sweetest people.
Q: The best skincare routine
E: A simple cleanse, exfoliate, tone, serum and most importantly an SPF!!!
Q: One piece of advice you’d give to aspiring OrangeTwist employees?
E: Just continue to have the willingness to learn and grow and really focus on your clients and what their needs are.
Q: Do tell. Share with us your guilty pleasure?
E: Taking baths while drinking wine with a face mask on while watching some reality TV show on my phone.
