What is your go-to skincare routine?
Omg, I love tea tree skin care. There are many different brands that you can use, like the set from The Body Shop that includes the skin mattifying face wash, toner, and serum. You can also use their mattifying lotion for a complete skin care regimen.
One item you can’t leave home without?
I always need something for my lips because I love for them to feel moisturized. It’s great to have an exfoliant like burts bees lip scrub and a moisturizer like Fresh Sugar lip balm that has SPF 15. If you’re looking for a more affordable option you could go with the EOS Active balms that have SPF 30.
If you only had 10 minutes to get ready, what makeup look could you achieve and how?
Definitely a simple makeup and my brows done, with a quick contour and blush. Then I would just throw my hair in a messy bun for a put together but laid back look. You can always add a scrunchie or hair scarf for a little something extra.
What is your best beauty hack?
As a beauty hack, I would definitely use tape to do winged eyeliner. It’s an easy way to get a perfect line every time. You can check out my YouTube channel for my videos where you’ll see some of my best tips!
What are your must-have beauty tools?
You should always have a beauty blender. It’s the best tool for blending out your foundation and concealer as well as any contouring you do.
