What makes a woman beautiful?
Confidence and presence.
What are your thoughts on the power of makeup?
I think that makeup has the power to really change someone’s confidence. It is true that beauty comes from within, but I know that when I’m feeling down and I put makeup on, it automatically makes me feel beautiful.
Did you learn any beauty tips or tricks from your mother?
My mom mostly taught me about taking care of my skin, especially protecting it from sun-damage. One thing we used to do together when I was young was exfoliate our lips with a sugar scrub and wet towel. She also taught me that less is more with makeup.
What is your beauty routine from the moment you wake up in the morning?
I wake up and wash and moisturize my face. My everyday must-have makeup is a tinted moisturizer, mascara, a bit of bronzer, but that is just to get me started. At night I wash and moisturize as well.
What does being a Maybelline New York spokesperson mean to you?
Being a Maybelline spokesperson means more than anyone can imagine; it doesn’t seem real! I remember being young, seeing the commercials and singing along to the Maybelline jingle imagining myself on that screen. Now here I am; dreams really do come true. To know that the Maybelline team believes in and trusts that I can represent their brand is honestly so incredible. I think the Maybelline girl is someone who is super-relatable to so many of us, and it’s an honour to be a representative of that. She’s a girl that goes straight from work to a party and adds a dash of lipstick to spice up her look. I hope to always make the Maybelline team proud by inspiring customers to use Maybelline by showing them that even though I’m a spokesperson, I’m just like them, and we can all use Maybelline to help us feel beautiful. I’m so honoured, humbled and excited by this opportunity.
