The best piece of beauty advice I've ever received:
Less is more. I don’t want to be unrecognizable without makeup so taking care of my skin is the most important part of my beauty regimen. Washing twice daily, along with a weekly mask, has been a staple regimen since I was a teenager. I also sweat on my face so light makeup is easy so it doesn’t all end up in a tissue!
A woman of color whose beauty and style inspires me:
Tracee Ellis Ross and Jada Pinkett-Smith; both women are sassy and classy! I love how beautifully they express themselves from their appearance to their opinions.
I think this makes a woman truly beautiful:
Confidence. When a woman is confident, she commands great presence regardless of what is thrown at her.
Favorite goodies ever discovered in a COCOTIQUE Box:
Alikay Naturals Lemongrass Leave In, Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter, and Su-Kari Body Butters.
Favorite COCOTIQUE Box overall:
The December 2014 Box had so many goodies in there! It was also the first time I tried Alikay Naturals products together. I immediately became a fan of the brand after this box.
What I love most about COCOTIQUE:
I really love the wide variety of products I get to try. Even if I don’t try everything right away, I have a mini arsenal of new products to try before I set out to buy new beauty products. I also love knowing that I can buy products I’ve tried through the site.
