Ever since we re-opened our shiny new beauty floors at Madison and Beverly Hills, our beauty obsession has shifted into overdrive (so many products, so little time!). Our cosmetics, skincare, and fragrance offerings are major—if we do say so ourselves—and we’re so proud to carry each and every one.

But of course, the New Foundations are not for us. They’re for you, which is why we’re thrilled that you appreciate them as much as we do. This morning, Women’s Wear Daily honored Barneys New York with the Beauty Retailer of the Year Award: Luxury (insert Sally Field “You like us!” outburst here)—which we’ll accept gratefully before turning the spotlight back on the amazing makeup artists, entrepreneurs, fragrance gurus, and skincare scientists that are behind every product we carry.

In honor of our new spaces, we asked some of our beauty dream team to define what beauty means to them. From a little lipstick to a lot of self-confidence, their answers will inspire you. Watch the video below, and check back in the coming days for more words of wisdom, beauty flashbacks, and can’t-live-without-‘em products from our favorite beauty experts.
