Last month Lily Lolo turned 11 years old, but our journey this far wouldn’t have been possible without all of our lovely stockists, and we thought its about time to turn the spotlight onto them. This week we have asked some questions to Celia and Estefania from BioC’est in Marbella to get to know them a bit better!
WHO ARE BIOC’EST ?
Hi there! We are 2 good friends from uni that wanted to do something different and we believed we could make a great team together! 50% of the company is made of Estefanía, Pharmacist, from Marbella, dog lover, Chihuahua owner, passionate and the impulsive part of the team.The other 50% is made of Celia, Pharmacist as well, from Madrid, more of a human than pets lover, optimistic and the patience side of the two of us! We opened our shop just over a year ago with the excitment of bringing both a combination of nature and style to any natural beauty lover out there, and the new ones that we’ve made along the way!As you can have guessed from this little introduction about us, the name comes from Bio-Ce (Celia)-est (Estefanía) so all together and with a little bit of imagination make BioC’est, which sounds good in any language!
DESCRIBE THE STYLE OF YOUR STORE
When we started picturing the store in our heads we imagined this white, clean, stylish and minimalist beauty concept store in which clients could come in and take their time to try our products and fall in love with aromas and textures and just to have been able to make it possible is like a dream come true!
WHAT DOES YOUR AVERAGE DAY CONSIST OF?
The best part of this job is that every day is just different! We love every part of it! From finding and solving the needs of our clients, to searching for new brands…We think that when you put your heart and you not only like but love what you do everyday becomes a new adventure!
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR FAVOURITE MAKE UP STYLE TO CREATE?
We truly believe that each of us have our own different beauty, so our favourite look would be that one in which you feel confident and happy with, we try to create very natural looks, enhancing the natural beauty of every woman and running away from this artificial stereotyped over-make up ones that in our opinion only hides who we are…but of course that’s only our opinion! One of the reasons we like Lily Lolo so much is that it allows us to do it very easily!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE LILY LOLO PRODUCT TO USE?
Mmm that’s a tricky question! It’s very hard just to pick one! So we are going to pick one each! Estefanía “I really love the concept of the brand, but if I have to choose one, the best for me is my “always-together” black eye pencil, an intense and soft basic, just love it! Celia “I have a complete set of Lily Lolo’s products but my favourites are the mineral foundations. They are so easy to apply and they blend perfectly in the skin with my “SUPER KABUKI” and the fact that they have SPF15 is my favourite part, you always get sunny days in Spain!
BEST THING ABOUT COMING TO WORK?
The best part is watching our BioC’est community growing everyday and seeing the clients happy when we assist them in the process of finding the best personalised beauty routine and looks for them!
DO YOU HAVE A MAKE UP LOOK FROM YOUR TEENS THAT YOU LOOK BACK AND REGRET?
Oh yes! Who doesn’t?! Haha We were actually going to send you a picture so you could have some entertainment but at the click moment it was way too embarrassing!
Thank you Celia and Estefania, we love the minimal style of BioC’est, and we are very proud to be stocked in such a beautiful store. We’ll be featuring more of our fabulous stockists in the coming months.
Love Lily Lolo x
