“I grew up in Queens, New York—born and raised. Fashion came about again when I used to be 14—I labored at a shop within the mall the place they bought the whole lot that everybody in Hip Hop tune used to be dressed in on the time. I knew find out how to put outfits in combination smartly, so styling got here simple to me and round 2005, via distinctive feature of pals that have been managers and manufacturers and artists, I had my first styling gig. I feel I nonetheless have my first actual bill—I most probably charged round $200. So I assisted for approximately two years at an company in New Jersey whose shoppers have been numerous athletes. Then I went out alone. Music used to be one of the crucial issues that were given me into styling—Ne-Yo and Rick Ross truly put me at the map. I’m nonetheless 100% in New York, however I at all times trip for my shoppers. I haven’t had a New York consumer in about 3 or 4 years! Even if it’s an eight-hour process, I’ll trip. It’s onerous to head from side to side such a lot, however I don’t know… I like New York and I made it out right here. I’m effectively nonetheless right here, so it is operating for me.

I get up within the morning and wash my face with the Soy Cleanser from Fresh. I like that it lathers and that I don’t want to use my Clarisonic with it. If I’m dressed in make-up, I take advantage of Neutrogena make-up wipes first. They simply wipe your make-up off with no need to make use of like 3 or 4 wipes at a time. I take advantage of my Dermalogica SPF religiously. Then, I take advantage of the Caudalie Anti-Wrinkle Polyphenol at all times. It’s truly, truly superb! And I take advantage of my Dior Hydra Life Crème—I simply re-bought as a result of I take advantage of it at all times—it is going on truly easy. I haven’t discovered numerous different lotions that paintings for me. I do not need to really feel them on my pores and skin, and this one is truly just right. It’s great and light-weight.

If I’m going someplace as opposed to the health club, I’ll practice my Bobbi Brown stick basis or the Nars Sheer Glow in Dark three—that’s the only I take advantage of after I’m going out. It is going on so easy, and I don’t like taking a look dry.

I take advantage of a complete bunch of palettes, however my primary one is from MAC. It’s a make-your-own palette with numerous plums. To practice, I will be able to’t use my palms since the make-up finally ends up below my nails, so I take advantage of a broom—I just like the Sephora logo brushes. I additionally love the Beauty Blender, which matches truly smartly with basis. I at all times line over the plum with this Smolder kohl liner from MAC. It’s a pencil and it’s the one liner that works! It’s very creamy. I do it at the outer waterline for some drama. I’ve truly large eyes, so I will be able to mess around with eye make-up. But I hate mascara. Instead, I can put on faux lashes—I normally have lash extensions in a 13 or fourteen. I do love to fill my brows in, ranging from the ground, with MAC in Stud. I don’t like waxing my eyebrows, so I am getting them threaded as a substitute. I believe love it lasts just a little longer. My blush is a roll-on stick from Nars in Maui that I’m nonetheless taking part in with, and to focus on, I take advantage of this one from Bobbi Brown in Almond.

I’m at all times in a nude lip. Sometimes you’ll in finding me doing a lip liner, however I don’t at all times want to. I really like Buxom lipsticks so much, and my all-time favourite nude is Smashbox in Audition. I really like nudes which are extra muted, and I’m going to move over with Buxom Hot Toddy Lip Cream, which is my favourite colour. There’s additionally Deelight via MAC—I do know the ones names, I purchase them in bulk. I by no means need to run out! If I sought after to mess around and do one thing particular, the entire Nars reds paintings truly smartly.

I take advantage of this Dermalogica Multivitamin ThermaFoliant so much, most commonly within the bathe. I additionally get laser hair removing as soon as a month. I’m on my 9th remedy, however it’s arduous for me to consider that it is going to move away ceaselessly. I’m doing it anyway. [Laughs] It’s made my hair lighter, and I don’t need to shave below my hands as a lot. I am going to Erase Spa on 32nd and seventh.

I take advantage of the Shea Moisture Body Oil at all times. Dr. Bronner’s is just right too—I made an elixir the opposite day that I stay in my toilet. It’s simply Dr. Bronners, just a little of lavender oil, and two drops of rosehip oil as it keeps your pores and skin tone even. I’m going to use that at the additional dry spots, like elbows. That’s truly just right.

I exfoliate within the bathe with this lemongrass exfoliant I randomly got here throughout on Amazon. I’m now not an enormous fan of frame lotion, and I even have delicate pores and skin. This is helping stay my pores and skin great and easy all the way through the day so I should not have to reapply lotion.

Fragrance at all times relies on the place I am going. Chanel No. five is truly just right, it is what I put on to the health club. This By Kilian one is for days after I’m feeling fancy.

When it’s curly I simply use the depart in conditioner and play with the curls just a little to taste. That conditioner makes it simple—it’s $13 a bottle, and I am going thru like 3 bottles per week.
