How long have you worked at Leigh’s? 

I have been working at Leigh’s for almost 4 years!

What’s a quote you live by?

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him,  and he will make your paths straight.

What do you like most about working at Leigh’s?

I enjoy the variety of services we offer at Leigh’s. Every day is new and exciting. I love learning about the newest technology and trends with esthetics and makeup. Teaching our clients how to put “their best face forward” is very rewarding.

Where do you draw makeup inspiration from?

Instagram and fashion magazines. Honestly, I’m always looking around at all the advertising and marketing around us and I pick what I love about their look.

What’s your favorite makeup brand/product?

Trish McEvoy is my favorite makeup brand!

What’s one of your favorite makeup trends?

I love the glowy skin look, so highlighting and strobing.

What do you do outside of work?

I enjoy (during the summer) spending time with my friends and family at the beach. I’m definitely a beach body.

Working At Leigh’s: Mattie Tiggleman

MATTIEBLOG

 

How long have you worked at Leigh’s? 

A year now! Though I only work during the summers and during breaks from school.

What’s a quote you live by?

“Stop and smell the roses” because my mom’s name is Rose and she used to always say that to me.

What do you like most about working at Leigh’s?

I like that I work with women who all share the same passion for fashion and I get to help people find outfits that make them feel great about themselves and feel confident.

Where do you draw fashion inspiration from?

Everywhere! I can find inspiration from things and places that most people wouldn’t think of. Like a tree or a painting, really anything. I’m really inspired by vintage stuff as well.

What’s your favorite fashion brand/product?

I love Miu Miu and Dolce&Gabbanna.

What’s one of your favorite fashion trends?

I don’t wear any trend just because it is a trend. I may look at trends to gain inspiration, but I take trends and essentially make them my own. Right now I’m into more gothic pieces like chokers and the sock ankle boots.

What do you do outside of work?

Outside of work I enjoy doing yoga. I used to be really into painting so I want to get back into that.

Working at Leigh’s: Rachael O’Donnell

A lot goes into keeping Leigh’s afloat, including all the hard work of our employees. In “Working at Leigh’s” we will highlight each employee so you can gain insight on who they are. Today we interview Rachael O’Donnell in our cosmetics department!

How long have you worked at Leigh’s? 

I have worked at Leigh’s for about 9 months as an esthetician.

What’s a quote you live by?

“This too shall pass”.

What do you like most about working at Leigh’s?

I like the atmosphere and the family side of it. Everyone is very cool and very welcoming. They’re always very driven to do their best and help each other out.

Where do you draw makeup inspiration from?

Being that it’s 2017, social media is very prevalent these days so I follow a lot of the beauty guru’s on Instagram. One of my favorites is @FlawlesssDolls which showcase all different makeup artists with different techniques and different products.

What’s your favorite makeup brand/product?

Here at Leigh’s, we carry Trish McEvoy and it’s one of my favorites because her system has steps. So there’s a step one for your eyes, step two is your eyeliner. She’s very organized and she has a level system depending on the degree you’ll wear your makeup. Outside of our brands, I’m really into Glossier.

What’s one of your favorite makeup trends?

I really like the minimalist look. I think for so long, as far as eye makeup, everyone wanted the smokey eye where it was dark on the lid, eyeliner, and everything. Now I think makeup is taking a step back where you want to see the freckles and it’s just you with your features emphasized opposed to makeup being emphasized.

What do you do outside of work?

I have 2 little boys that are 3 and 1 so I literally just chase after them! I have three cats too so it’s a full house. I keep everyone alive; if everyone is alive at the end of the day then it was a good day (lol)!

 

Call 616.942.6300 to make an appointment with Rachell! Also, Rachell specializes in our new lash lift service, we highly recommend!

Summer Looks by Dex and Drew

Summers in Michigan are spent running out the door to spend time in warm weather. Girls are faced with a huge dilemma; how can I stay cool in the heat but also stay on trend with what I am wearing? We decided to focus on two brands, Dex and Drew that make summer dressing a breeze.

Dex is a brand started out of Montreal that focuses on the latest trends while also staying affordable. We live for their versatile fabrics that you can dress up or down. This dress you could almost wear to any event. At only $78, everyone needs this dress in their closet.

The Dex Romper we featured is only $89 , paired with Prada Sunglasses. The Classic denim Romper is a summer staple.

Drew is a brand that is also versatile and comfortable in the clothing that it makes. This Drew dress happens to be on sale for $157  as a part of our semi-annual clearance! Paired here with Prada Sunglasses, this dress has a t-shirt attached to the camisole dress, which makes it that much easier to throw on and run out in! The rest of our spring summer merchandise you can find for up to 50% off!

We can’t wait to see you in shopping these products and the rest of our sale- and if you do decide to purchase something, don’t forget to share your purchases with the hashtag #gotitatleighs

We have so much going on throughout the day! We have a spring Diane Von Furstenberg  pop-up shop including all new arrivals available for immediate purchase.

We also have a Nic + Zoe Spring Trunk Show Happening! If Bright Textures aren’t your thing, try on these light fabrics that will get you through the summer months. They are a great price point!

 

To make things better, there will be a Ray Ban trunk show so you can find the perfect pair of sunglasses for the summer.

The scorching hot deal of the day will be the buy 2 get 1 free mascara deal with Trish McEvoy. Her lash products feature water-resistant formula that keeps it from coming off in the heat but allows for easy removal at the end of the day.
