Who is your beauty icon?
The Olsen Twins – not only are they the epitome of cool, no one can pull off a fresh face like those two. As someone who lives out of a gym bag I don’t have a lot of time or room for a ton of products. I love their minimalist look that always end up looking incredibly chic and polished.
What beauty product do you always carry in your handbag?
Chanel Volume Mascara and Rosebud lip balm. I can’t live without them!
Describe your typical morning beauty routine:
I can’t start my day without a workout, but by the time I’m done I’m usually running late – I have a day job in advertising on top of my fitness hustle. I’ll quickly shower, haphazardly blow my hair dry and throw into a top knot. Tinted moisturizer, pink blush, mascara and lip balm are my week day staples.
Quote you live by:
I’ve lived by this Arnold Bennett quote for several years now, “Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.” It reminds me to push past my comfort zone and embrace challenges. Challenge is synonymous with change. You always come through a better, stronger, and more able person.
