Leah Colman, People & Culture Associate
Hometown: Raleigh, NC
Unofficial role: Keeper of the Candy (I have about 500 Dum Dum’s in my desk—no joke.)
Fun fact: I have the smallest feet ever. Seriously, I wear a 4.5 in Women’s. I also was a dancer for about 18 years and traveled to Russia twice for dance competitions.
Beauty confession: I am obsessed with Chapstick, lip balm, lip gloss, etc. I won’t go anywhere without at least a tube of balm in my purse. My boyfriend thinks it’s crazy, but it’s totally necessary.
Currently loving: Stila One Step Bronze. I am very, very pale and I love how this gives me a subtle color and glow that isn’t too dark.
Worth the splurge: Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. This stuff is amazing! It makes my skin super soft, and as someone who shows age spots and freckles easily thanks to my light skin, it’s really helped even out my skin tone.
Best beauty trick: Glossing creme! Every day before I leave the house, I put a dime-sized amount of glossing creme in my hair (but not on the roots). It makes my hair super shiny and soft, plus combats static in the cold months. Oscar Blandi makes an amazing one that I love!
