What is the key to success for TV personalities and content creators?
The key to success is preparation because if you get ready and you stay ready, you [don’t have to] worry about being ready. I would just say make sure you know what it is that you’re doing. So, when you get out there you can just be comfortable and try to connect with whatever it is you’re doing so that you can bring your authentic self to the scene or to the place. Wherever you show up, you want to be able to bring your authentic self and that happens when you practice and when you prepare. So, then when you show up it just flows.
Tell us about your beauty routine.
I really wish I [could] shout-out these flat irons I just bought because I got this really nice infrared [hair tool]. I have natural hair. I’ve been growing my natural hair out for a long time and it just gives me a really nice silky press. I don’t know the name of it. I’m sorry but look out for it. I really like [lashes], I’m a lash girl but I might not wear a lot of makeup. I love makeup too, don’t get me started because I will beat this face down, but when I don’t, a nice little skin care is so important.
What are your favorite beauty products?
I don’t use any brands, because I use more natural stuff. I use aloe vera. Aloe vera is really good for the skin. You just cut it right down the middle, you want to scratch it a little bit so you can get the gooey stuff activated, and then you can just rub it on your skin; all natural. I also use limes or lemons on [my] face because it automatically eats up the dead skin. So, you want to eat up that dead skin and then you want to come back with that aloe vera to kind of like smooth it on out and to heal you. If you know aloe vera, it just seals on its own. You cut it, and it just seals right back up. I use avocado on my hair, banana, olive oil, and grapeseed oil. I make a little mixture. I’m really into putting natural things on my body; things that I can eat, taste, put on my face, put on my hair, my body and everywhere. It’s all-natural.
