In 3-4 sentences, please tell us about yourself and your blog?
I am best described as a person with an addictive personality (I can get addicted to shopping at CVS if the sale is right!) I never met a beauty product that I didn’t like! Some I love more than others, but just because it doesn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for you! My blog is written from a makeup artist’s and skin care professional’s point of view even though I am a woman of color, because I feel that beauty is universal.
What are 3 products in your ultimate beauty arsenal and why?
NARS lip gloss (any color) because I love the color and texture; FACE Atelier Facade because I love multi-use products and this can go on my cheeks and lips as a stain; and Restorsea night cream because I love how it feels on my skin, and how it makes my skin look the next day.
What separates you from other bloggers?
Wow, great question but hard to answer. I feel like humility has always served me well. That and I love to learn—whether from my friends or other people/mentors that I meet along the way.
If you had 2 hours to pick out an outfit from head to toe, where would you shop and why?
Nordstrom! I love that store, I can always find great picks there (great sales) and they call me when things come in that they know I will like.
Above all else, what is your favorite kind of product to review?
What is the one skincare/hair care/fashion trick every woman should know?
Always use sunscreen NO MATTER WHAT.
What cosmetic ingredient(s) do you avoid and why?
Anything with glycolic acid above 5%—I had a bad experience once!
Do you have a Sunday night or weekend beauty ritual? If so, what is it?
Yep, I usually wash my hair on Saturday and do a deep conditioner. I also do a mask on my face—like a little mini facial, on Sunday night.
What has been your proudest blogging moment to date?
I wrote an article entitled “What is a BB Cream and Can Light Skinned/Dark Skinned Women Wear it?" that got picked up on a larger site. That was pretty cool.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us?
I am working on the fall edition of my networking event Cocktails & Couture, which will be a bit different this time around as a paid event. We will have more space so it will be a bigger event. Tickets are on sale now, so check the website.
