Occupation
Full-time fashion and beauty blogger at The Fabulous Report.

Interests & hobbies
I used to take dance classes, but my schedule is always changing, so I don’t have as much time as I used to. I’m also a huge history buff. I know it’s kind of crazy, but I’ll watch just about any documentary. I’m fascinated by complex people and seeing what makes them tick.

Best skincare advice
Listen to your mother when she tells you to take care of your skin when you’re young and use SPF (even if you’re African American). I’ve found that many people with great “don’t-look-their-age” skin started a skincare routine young.

Why is skincare important to you?
Skincare makes you feel better about yourself. If you take the time to care of your skin, you’re going to feel great.

And finally, would you rather wear...?

Blush or bronzer?
Blush.

Lipstick or lipgloss?
Lipstick, every day.

Eyeliner or mascara?
Mascara.

Favorite DHC products

I like Deep Cleansing Oil®. It takes off my makeup in one step. And it just makes [my routine] easier for me before I go to sleep after a late night.
