What is beauty? Art of Beauty Live Interview with Mary Palmieri

mary-palmieri
In a world that obsesses over beauty and image, it’s so important to have a healthy relationship with your own body and to really connect with your authentic self. It’s easy to get lost in the game of comparison and be very disconnected with who you are.

What is beauty?

Beauty is not one size fits all.

Beauty is not a mold you have to fit into.

Beauty is not how skinny you are or the brand you are wearing.

Beauty it not your size, shape, or color.

Beauty is knowing who you are and loving her.

Beauty is accepting all of you.

Beauty is feeling good in your own skin.

Beauty is being confident to be your authentic self inside and out.

It’s time to change the way the world defines beauty.

If you are interested in learning how to truly embrace your own beauty, and start feeling confident in your own body then you’re going to want to join The Beauty Marketplace’s Founder, Mary Palmieri, at: http://theartofbeautyseries.com/mary

Mary has joined Kate Cady in spreading the message about what beauty really means, and how we as women can start building our confidence and loving who we are, unapologetically.

When you are disconnected with yourself you lose sight of your own desires and dreams in life, you stop thriving and start surviving. It’s time to get your confidence back, and start reconnecting with your own beauty and desires.

Soukenberi

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: Soukenberi

The Beauty Marketplace had an enlightening call with Suk Chan Candle and Scent Developer, Founder of Soukenberi – a personal fragrance line for you and your space. From clean, refreshing, and invigorating Eucalyptus Tea, to light and lifting Lemon Sandalwood; Soukenberi fragrances captivate your senses.

Suk Chan has an interesting career path which began in R&D for International Fashion where she spent many years at Donna Karan sourcing production overseas. Looking to do something else, and always having a nose for scent and mixing different things, Suk decided to look into candle making. She played with scents first for a year to a year and half, and that was when she encountered the nirvana moment of finding her passion.

The Harmon Hotel in Las Vegas commissioned her to create a scent for the hotel which the company was to use in different variations, however, the hotel encountered infrastructure issues and required demolition.  Out of this twist in fate, Suk found joy because she knew this was something she could do for the rest of her life moving forward.

Soukenberi

Suk developed her own line, self-titled according to her nickname, Soukenberi, and her company’s mission is to bring joy via their products.

CraftingBeauty

THE BEAUTY MARKETPLACE TALENT OF THE MONTH

Developing a fragrance is a work of art that takes detailed craftsmanship, sourcing of the finest ingredients, and is a subjective personal experience requiring a careful curation of one’s brand and identity. Creating marketable fragrances, packaged ever so eloquently, for the leading luxury and niche brands on the market requires true skill, talent, as well as an eye for luxury and the finer elements of life.

One man has mastered the art of developing such fragrances, and is the talent behind many of the leading niche designer fragrances on the market. He is The Beauty Marketplace’s Breakout Talent of the Month – François Damide – Founder and President of Crafting Beauty.

CraftingBeauty
Crafting Beauty, a boutique scent curation and product development firm, was founded in New York City to offer American designers, lifestyle and indie brands a turnkey service to custom craft their bespoke luxury perfumery products, such as Eau de Perfume and candles, made in France, thanks to a small minimum of 1,000 units.   François hails from France where luxury and fine ingredients are a commonplace so one can almost assume avant-garde creations are practically innate for Mr. Damide. He began his career on the Fashion side of luxury as CEO and Partner of high-end lace provider Solstiss, lace supplier to all the big names in high end fashion like Oscar de La Renta, Vera Wang, and Michael Kors. From Solstiss, François had a stint as President for Lela Rose, the whimsical feminine brand most famous for designing the outfits worn by Jenna and Barbara Bush at their father’s presidential inauguration.

From Lela Rose, François was introduced to the world of luxury fragrance and beauty when he began working for the French perfume company, Arthes, founders of the endorphin producing “Happy Therapy” perfume titled Smiley. While working for the Arthes fragrance house, Francois’ former fashion clients would request to have custom scents curated for their brand. After numerous requests, François identified a need to develop scents and fragrances for the luxury niche designer market, and Crafting Beauty was born.

Today, Crafting Beauty is in high demand developing fragrances and candles for the exclusive chic names in luxury spanning markets from lifestyle stores, spas, hotels, fashion, and beauty to name a few.

The Beauty Marketplace had the exquisite pleasure of lunching with Francois hearing all about his decadent career at the Italian eatery, Mercato, for which Francois also developed a signature candle. When we asked him about industry trends he said, “The market is saturated with designers and celebrity fragrances products (being rolled out every month in departments stores),  there is an interest in niche, luxury perfumery, where the attention is given to the quality of the ingredients, on the oil concentration, where the master perfumer’s name  is revealed, becoming a true artist behind the juice. Also, the craftsmanship and detailing featured on the packaging is now much more relevant. Basically, we are going back to the roots of what a beautiful perfume is, inside out, and where the product is king rather than the brand. This big players are obviously paying attention to this trend, and the M&A market has been proving into that direction: Estee Lauder buying Le Labo, then Frederic Malle at the end of last year. So far in 2015, Puig bought L’Artisan Parfumeur, and Macy’s purchase of luxury specialty retailer Bluemercury. As such, I believe this trend is here to stay.”

Crafting Beauty recently opened a location in Paris to service the European market keen to the niche trend as well.

THE BEAUTY MARKETPLACE JANUARY BREAKOUT TALENT

The Beauty Marketplace’s January Breakout Talent of the Month is Fitness Expert Marc Perry.

marc-perry-beach-photo-big

Marc Perry first caught The Beauty Marketplace’s eye via his promotional fitness flyers he would distribute in a popular health food restaurant in Manhattan called Natureworks. After doing more research, we discovered Marc and his BuiltLean program have all the elements of a Breakout Fitness Talent: Mass market appeal, an interesting background story, and an effective branded workout regimen.

Marc Perry is a Yale graduate and former finance analyst who ditched Wall Street for a career in Fitness in order to teach people the truth about body transformation and a healthy lifestyle.

Marc-Perry-before-after

The Beauty Marketplace was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to ask Marc some questions as he was preparing for the New Year and below is what he had to say.

The Beauty Marketplace: Elaborate on what ultimately motivated you to take the entrepreneurial leap and leave finance to become an expert in fitness.

Marc Perry: I had a lot of motivations, but deep down I knew I was not reaching my potential in finance and I never would. I wanted to build something that could positively change the world. Fitness is something I’ve always loved and has been very important to me. I reasoned that helping people achieve their fitness goals and inspiring others to get excited about fitness is a mission to which I can happily dedicate my life.

The Beauty Marketplace: What are both your fitness and career goals heading into 2015?

Marc Perry:

My career goals this year are:
1) To write at least one article per week and produce at least one video per month
2) Hire a full-time employee to help manage the operations and marketing implementation for my company
3) Develop more revenue streams that can scale while refining and creating more products and services

I have several fitness goals, here are a few:
1) Touching my hands behind my back on both sides
2) Pistol squat with both legs
3) 100 snatches in 5 minutes with 24kg kettlebell
4) Become SFG certified
5) Become NASM-CES certified

The Beauty Marketplace: We think you are on to something with workouts for busy professionals! Can you identify any fitness trends you have noticed that you think may increase in popularity heading into 2015?

Marc Perry: One trend that I think is very beneficial to everyone including busy professionals is the functional fitness trend, which will continue to become more important When I say “functional fitness”, I don’t mean doing biceps curls while standing on a bosu ball, but emphasizing quality of movement and exercises that directly translate into improved strength and performance like a kettlebell swing, push-ups, or pull ups. Approaching the body as a bunch of separate muscles to train individually is an inferior approach for longevity and athletic performance than using the body as one piece – in my opinion.

The Beauty Marketplace:  What are some of your favorite Health and Fitness brands?

Marc Perry: Some fitness brands and products I like:
StrongFirst
Spartan Race
Mobility WOD
Captains of Crush Grippers
RadRoller
TRX

The Beauty Marketplace:  Do you have a grooming routine or any specific products you use or tips to share?

Marc Perry: When I first moved to New York City, I’m not sure I knew what grooming meant. My toiletry bag was pretty empty. But as I’ve gotten older and after some advice from a woman I dated, for cleaning my face I use proactive, a vitamin C serum by Anthony, and a Nivea Q10 moisturizer. The moisturizer in particular makes a significant difference in how my skin looks. Other than that, for dental hygiene I brush my teeth, floss using floss picks, and use Listerine. For my hair I use a hair gel from Dramatics NYC called Drama Putty and shave every morning.

This product is not a supplement, but an actual powdered food source that can be lived off of and used as a meal. Each bag is all food, made with a unique technology, and comes directly from a farm. Arguably, one of the best pre and post workout products on the market.

The WHEN:
The Dinescu Twins came to market with D&D Organics in 2014, but the ingestible product has actually been a work in progress for the past ten years.

The brand and product is meant to coincide with a fast paced healthy lifestyle. The Dinescu twins are fitness enthusiasts who love training and being healthy.
