What’s your ideal morning routine?
Naturally waking up without an alarm which is usually around when the sunrises. I'm a total morning person! I admittedly check my phone first thing most mornings, but if I'm being intentional I'll either journal, meditate, or read for a little bit. Then I like to chug a bunch of water, get ready for the day, and eat breakfast. If I'm treating myself, I'll take a leisurely walk to get some coffee. My current favorite is Philz iced coffee rosé.
Favorite Minori Product?
I'm not usually a lip gloss person but I am totally sold on Minori's lip gloss! Usually I don't like glosses because the texture is too tacky, but I find Minori's to be quite hydrating and smooth on my lips. It also has a great scent!
What’s something you can’t leave the house without?
My air pods. I absolutely love music and am listening to it constantly. Whether it's while I'm running experiments in the lab, working out, going for a long drive, or studying I like to be flooded with music.
You have 5-minutes to do your makeup, what are you reaching for?
Glossier lidstar, eyelash curler, chapstick, and a little blush (current fav is Minori's cream blush)
What does minimalism mean to you?
It's all about what adds value and meaning to your life. I like to think of minimalism in the context of not just physical items, but also the energy and thought-space I put into the people I surround myself with and activities I involve myself in. In terms of makeup, I mostly just use products that enhance my natural features because that's what makes me feel the best.
What's the best beauty advice you've received?
Beauty comes from within, so the way you feel inside is what will shine through on the outside.
What makes you feel confident?
So many things—my smile, my mind, my family, my friends. I am proud of who I am and am always striving to be the best possible version of myself.
