6. What is your beauty and/or fitness routine?
- I think moisturizing is very good for my skin, so I moisturize every day.
- I just started cupping and trying the gua sha facial treatment.
I have a simple makeup regimen every day, which consists of a small amount of concealer to even out my skin tone and I like my eye makeup to “waken” up my eyes. I 100% need my lip moisturizer and I like either neutral or bright lip gloss too-depending on the day! These are the products I use:
- HydroPeptide facial moisturizer
- Arbonne liquid foundation
- Revlon eyeshadow (I like “purples” to highlight my green eyes)
- Covergirl mascara
- Almay “Black Raisin” eyeliner (also good for green eyes)
- Mary Kay “Fancy Nancy” lip gloss or N.Y.C. “Soho Shine”
- I go to the gym 6-7 days a week and enjoy lifting weights.
- I believe mental wellness is crucial, so I do all things to reduce stress and negativity in my life, as well as eat healthy, get lots of sleep and take vitamins.
7. List the products or items that are indispensable in your life.
- My phone and it’s only because of my business purposes. When I can be offline, I enjoy resting my mind.
- As opposed to physical items, the intangible things that are indispensable are my self-wellness time, my time with family and enjoyable life experiences.
8. Which female entrepreneur(s) do you look up to and why?
- Marie Forleo because I love her energy and work.
