Meet our latest muse, Courtney Lillian Ball! A mama and content creator based in Maui. Courtney loves slow mornings, spending days with her family, and a minimalist makeup routine. We caught up with Courtney to chat about her morning routine, what makes her feel confident, and of course, her favorite Minori product. Enjoy!
What is your ideal morning routine?
My ideal morning routine would definitely be with my family. Starting the morning with a nutritious brekkie cooked at home (preferably loaded avo toast or breakfast burritos), hot coffee with cream in our cozy clothes starting off slow. Then ideally we would head to the beach to dip in the ocean, get our energy out & enjoy being outdoors.
What’s something you can’t leave the house without?
Something I can’t leave the house without is my daughter 😂 no I’m kidding, it probably would be my water jug, and purse with my wallet & (not even kidding) my Minori Dream Lip Gloss.
What makes you feel confident?
Probably when I feel most confident is when I’ve taken healthy time for myself whether that’s moving my body via a long walk or swim, or reading my book while enjoying a matcha. Confidence for me comes from when I’m feeling happy & healthy. I can be the best me for my family.
What's the best beauty advice you've received?
The best beauty advice I’ve received is that you never need much makeup to look exquisite. A little goes a long way & if you find the right makeup/color for you, it makes all the difference. I am a firm believer that makeup is meant to highlight & enhance natural beauty, not mask, change or cover it up in any way. Embrace YOU.
What is your favorite Minori Product?
My absolute favorite Minori product is the Scarlet Cream Blush. The color is the perfect peachy pigment against my skin & I’ve grown to love using it as eyeshadow & lip color as well. Easiest makeup routine for a busy mama! A CLOSE second would be the Dream Lip Gloss, that name explains it perfectly. It’s the yummiest smelling & softest gloss I’ve ever owned.
Do you have a favorite makeup tip or trick?
A makeup trick I’ve been having fun with lately is mixing the Golden Highlighter & Cream blush by Minori, and using that unique shade to add dimension to my face. I use it on my eyelids, lips & sometimes even cheeks too! Easy way to switch things up.
Anything you would like to share with our community?
As someone who is passionate about self love & self care, my reminder to you is to take time to be still with yourself, work on embracing all of you—even the scary bits. You’re stuck with you for the rest of your life—so fall in love with her/him. It’s the best gift you can ever give yourself & your loved ones.
