Career / Cathy

Growing up, the only part-time job I was okay with having was one in retail. I was totally fashion obsessed and retail was the closest I was getting to the industry. The day after I turned 16 I started an after school job at The Limited Too. After that, I worked at a small kids clothing store, and in college I spent two years working at Rugby and then a small men’s store. I learned to have a tremendous amount of respect for people who work retail, and even more for the people who turned retail jobs from high school or college into full blown careers in fashion.

Wild Thing

Have you noticed the effect animal prints have on a woman? A bit more fierce, even without wearing a super high heel. And it seems like the easiest way to wear it is in the form a jacket, followed closely by accessories, namely shoes. It kind of acts as a neutral – considering it’s typically tanned brown and black spots – it isn’t so hard to believe. I used to have a pair of leopard sneakers I loved and wore ’til they were actually unwearable, and spots that weren’t there originally had somehow migrated their way into the pattern.

A Beauty Minute with Corinne

Morning: Most of my skincare routine happens at night. When I wake, I refresh with the Yon-Ka toner. Maybe I’ll put on the regenerator or Liz Earle. For makeup I use Giorgio Armani foundation as a concealer. I’ll tidy my brows with gel, if I’m not working that’s it. I like to wear light makeup if I’m not taking photos. If I’m doing a show or photoshoot, I’ll use the foundation all over, and NARS eye makeup. I like to keep the natural tone in my lips, sometimes we’ll do a bit of lip liner as lipstick, to enhance the tone.
