What’s the most important beauty product for festival season?
It’s got to be a makeup setting spray! That’s how your makeup stays in perfect place, especially as the festivals approaching this summer! I use one by MAC, and it definitely helped me during Coachella!
Your biggest tip to healthy skin?
A good skin routine is so important! I had acne prone skin, and I’ve found the products by Canadian dermatologist Dr.Kellet have cleared my skin up and helped me keep it that way. Also, drinking lots of fluids and keeping hydrated is very important.
How do you keep your hair so healthy?
I take biotin every day! Also, a good shampoo and conditioner are important. I use Loreal Pro Fiber.
What skincare products are you in love with right now?
What’s your favorite drugstore product?
I’ve recently been using a primer by Maybelline called “The Master Prime,” in blur and redness control. I always seem to just randomly get red patches by my eyebrows. It’s so annoying! But I’ve found this product to be amazing at calming that down!
If you could only do one workout forever what would it be?
Glute exercises forever!
What nail polish color would you be?
Do you have an emergency pimple fixer?
Yes, SkinCeuticals Blemish and Age Defense.
You’re going out for dinner and drinks with the girls. What color lipstick are you wearing? Any particular brand?
MAC lipsticks are my fav. The color “Whirl” in both lip and lipliner would be my go-to.
You’re going on a date and you’re going for sultry lashes. Do you choose strip lashes or extensions?
I always have extensions applied. I love waking up feeling glamorous! But lately I’ve been using lashes by Muavee, and they are incredible.
It’s festival season and you’re shopping for bronzer. Which one do you buy?
Definitely Hoola by Benefit.
Your brows got waxed a bit too thin. What product do you use to fill them in?
You’re about to be on long flight. What product do you never fly without?
Moisturizer and face wipes. And lots of water.
What’s the ultimate DJ beauty look?
The perfect balance between sexy and cool. You will find me wearing a baggy tee paired with over the knee boots, or leather pants and my Yeezys.
Any projects you’re working on at the moment?
Yes! I’m working on original music that I can’t wait to share! A lot of other things on the go. You’ll just have to keep up with me to find out!
