Life & Work with Helen Pierrot

Today we’d like to introduce you to Helen Pierrot.

Hi Helen, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I started working at cosmetic stores when I was 19. After about a year or two in, I realized how much of a passion I had for makeup. Whether it was makeup applications or the products themselves, I was obsessed! I knew I did not want to work in retail for the rest of my life so I decided to start my own cosmetics line. Then Lenny P Cosmetics was birthed. I started pretty simple, mixing glitters and glosses out of my bedroom for just myself. Trying different colors and formulas to see what I lived best. What initiated as just a glitter line has now become a cosmetics line that carries a variety of glitters, glosses, pigments, lashes, and more.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
This was definitely not a smooth road. I had plenty moments where I doubted that I could be where I am now. I always thought, “who would even support me?” Then I decided who cares! I’m going to put myself out there. When finally doing my launch back in March of 2020, things were going well! I was excited and I had the support of my friends and family. Then the pandemic hit and I lost my job. I lost the source of income that was helping fund my company. I was out of a job for about five months. I became discouraged and did not know how I would be able to keep it pushing. I decided I would continue to promote my makeup services to gain some income and would use my cosmetics on my clients as a form of promotion.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
What I love most about makeup is that it allows you to have a way to express yourself in a creative light. I am best known for combining a dramatic eye look with natural skin.

What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
I probe myself of always putting my client’s needs and wants first. I always maintain a professional yet friendly relationship with all of my client and customers that I feel has allowed for a rapport that has remained positive.
