We had the pleasure of asking Elise Brill, owner of Leesi B Cosmetics, a few questions about her business, which has been operational for 15 years.
Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself — where you grew up, what you do for fun, etc.
I grew up in Glenview, Illinois. I have the most fun when I can spend time with my family. I love to travel but with my busy schedule running the makeup company and working as a makeup artist we usually just take short trips for 3 to 4 days at a time. I enjoy cooking and I’m a “foodie” at heart, always trying new spots in the city. Yoga and long walks by the water is what I mostly try to do. I also volunteer for Flashes of Hope, providing free makeup applications and makeovers to children suffering from cancer.
