Our guest this week is Gen Sohr.  Gen and her husband Benjamin own Pencil & Paper Co., a design services company.  Pencil & Paper Co. provide all types of design services, including architectural services, interior design and styling, and retail design and branding.  They count Reese Witherspoon’s fashion and home brand, Draper James, among their clients.  

In her interview, Gen explained how her design career influences her choice of beauty products, especially when it comes to product packaging. We also talked to Gen about being late because you can’t find your highlighter, the best MAC red lipstick, and (trying) to power through the “retinol uglies.”  Gen also introduced us to Plus White, the best teeth whitening product (that happens to be less than $10).  Download the episode on iTunes or listen above, and scroll down for a full product breakdown!

You can find Gen at pencilandpaperco.com and on Instagram @pencilandpaperco.
