We’re always working to find the best new brands so we can share their amazing products with you—and our kickbutt brand partnerships team is hard at work sourcing those awesome lines everyday. Two of the team’s newest additions are Carlos and Logan, whose past experience with the coolest names in fashion, beauty, and food at Ogilvy & Mather and Weber Shandwick, respectively, means that you can expect lots of great things coming your way! When this savvy duo isn’t busy testing new products (see below) or hosting meetings, they’re erupting into spontaneous laughter and recapping last night’s shows on Bravo.
Name/Title: Carlos Alvarado, Brand Merchandising and Marketing Manager
Hometown: New London, CT
Unofficial role: Senior Director of Britney Spears Dance Parties
Fun fact: I celebrated my 21st birthday in both Rome and Amsterdam in one day.
Beauty confession: I just started using eye cream and can’t imagine life without it.
Worth the splurge: Kiehl’s Facial Fuel SPF15.
Best grooming trick: Always shave twice in the morning. Once with the grain, re-apply shave cream, and then shave against the grain for the closest shave.
Name/Title: Logan Crane, Senior Relationship Manager
Hometown: Portland, Maine
Unofficial role: Princess of Bravo-lebrity Gossip
Fun fact: I’ve met President Obama at Air Force One, he likes to jog down the steps.
Beauty confession: I shave with conditioner for a smooth and hydrating finish. In the summer I can even skip applying lotion.
Currently loving: Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Primer
Best beauty trick: Use a dry shampoo powder instead of liquid spray on fine blonde hair. It helps cover highlighted roots and gives your hair an extra boost of volume.
