Meet with Clinique’s Brand Ambassador, Melissa Barrera
Can you share a bit about your experience as a Clinique brand ambassador and what it means to you?
I love it! I love representing Latinos as a brand ambassador because I grew up with Clinique and I know Clinique’s presence in Mexico is huge. Being able to be the face of Clinique and have so many women look at me and think, “Yeah, she looks like me” or “Because she’s a brand ambassador, I might as well someday. become a brand ambassador,” I find that great. Clinique has been with my family for generations, so it feels very fulfilling to be an ambassador for a brand I really know and love and that has stuck with my family for so many years. year.
How does being a brand ambassador reflect your idea of beauty?
One of my favorite things about the brand is that they really care about making people feel comfortable and getting people to accept their own unique beauty. I love how all makeup products are skin care first. … When we look in the mirror, if we like what we see, it will positively affect us for the rest of the day.—the way we carry ourselves, the energy that we carry into every room. I’ve always thought that growing up, some people had perfect skin in middle school and high school, and some people were constantly breaking out in acne and sometimes that just wasn’t fair.
Now, working with Clinique, I feel that beauty is a source of energy that comes from within, but we also want our looks to match the inside. I think that’s Clinique’s mission: to create products and be a safe brand for all skin types and to help people achieve their best. I love being a part of that message and know that it’s an accessible and safe brand that makes people feel beautiful.
