Gail Sagel has a unique background; combining leadership in manufacturing,retailing cosmetics, makeup artistry, after a successful career on Wall Street. Gail is a Professional Makeup Artist with over 20 years cosmetic industry experience and the author Making Faces Beautiful®, a How-to-Book which teaches makeup technique. In 2000, Gail successfully launched Faces Beautiful®, a beauty concept store located in Westport, CT. The makeup & skincare studio is an eight-time recipient of Best of Westport.
With the 2008 recession, Gail saw a sharp fall in revenues due to the recession’s direct impact on Faces Beautiful’s clients. Gail’s strong fiscal management provided the company the financial resources to weather the recession and come out stronger even as many competitors went out of business. As a former Wall Street derivatives broker, Gail understood economic cycles, which would impact consumer behavior, customer loyalty, and the overall retail landscape. Post 2008 recession, Gail has been transitioning Faces Beautiful® from a salon and retail operation to a makeup artist cosmetic brand. The success from the development and manufacturing of Brush-On Liquid Mineral Makeup, which is a mineral based three in one foundation, has gotten women’s attention. Women love it and in 2013, it won best new foundation as voted by Bella Beauty. Gail has been recognized by the National Association of Professional Women, the Continental Who’s Who of New England, and is a member of Cosmetic Executive Women. She is sought as a speaker and presenter by organizations such as Over 40 Females to speak nationally and locally. To learn more about Gail, visit www.gailsagel.com.
