Your look in three words:
Curly, exotic, striking.

Never leave the house without:

Beauty from the inside out:
I fill my body with the most wholesome and nutritious foods and I always stay hydrated. If you’re beautiful on the inside, your beauty will radiate on the outside.

Exercise regime:
Nothing crazy — I try every day to walk as much as I can. When I’m at the gym I do yoga, abs, low intensity cardio, and I always sit in the sauna to sweat out all of the toxins in my body.

Snack of choice:
My snack of choice is apple slices and peanut butter, it’s filling and healthy but also sweet so it satisfies my sweet tooth!

Beauty essentials:
Benefit roller lash mascara, the Anastasia tinted brow gel, and the Vaseline Lip therapy.

Skincare splurge:
Definitely purchasing my favourite Lancôme Visionnaire Moisturizer.

Favorite hair professional:
Deva Curl, because it keeps my curls looking hydrated and bouncy.

Pharmacy find:
Maybelline Fit Me foundations. They’re inexpensive but have great coverage and aren’t clogging to my pores.

In-tub must-read:
Either a Nicholas Sparks book or Harry Potter.

A resort in Malibu. It’s right on the coast and is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate.

Always in your suitcase:
I always keep my go-to Deva Curl products (shampoo, conditioner, styling gel and cream), my makeup bag with my powder, bronzer, mascara, and brow gel, and of course my perfume!

Fragrance of choice:
Versace Yellow Diamond. You’ll always find me caring my travel bottle and my hand moisturizer — it’s the best scent.

Best advice from mom:
Always take your makeup off before you go to bed.

Best advice from the pros:
Always spend money on the best products for your skin. It might seem silly to spend $80 on moisturizer, but you’ll thank yourself years down the road when you don’t have wrinkles!

Beauty icons:
Magdalena Frackowiak. The effort she puts into keeping her skin healthy is so amazing, and clearly everything she does works because she’s 31 and doesn’t have a single wrinkle.
