The Oscar leader and face of Calvin Klein Women shares her lipstick tricks and admits to violation a principal skin-care order (skipping SPF!).
I wear incense each day since my mom wore incense each day. It’s usually partial of my routine: Put on deodorant and put on a scent. My initial greeting when we smelled Calvin Klein Women ($84) was relief. Because we indeed unequivocally favourite it, and carrying to fake that something is fascinating to we is unequivocally uncomfortable. It has a floral quality, though we like that there’s an engaging multiple of cedarwood and eucalyptus. we went to a propagandize that had a lot of eucalyptus trees on a grounds, so it reminds me of my childhood.
I’m now wearing my hair in turn braids. we go to Marva Stokes for that. we also work unequivocally closely with hairstylist Vernon François; he’s so ardent about healthy Afro hair. we use
his Scalp Nourish~Ment Braids and Locs Spray ($24) to supplement dampness and oil behind to my scalp. My hair form drinks it up.
I adore to cook, and we adore Nigerian food. My favorites are e.bà and egusi. And moi moi—it’s done of steamed, belligerent black-eyed peas, and infrequently it has shrimp in it, infrequently egg. It’s so good.
I like to practice with my possess physique strength. And we adore to burst rope—it’s so easy to transport with. we also work with a trainer, Kirsty God so, in New York, doing high-intensity interlude training fused with Pilates.
“I keep my skin-care slight simple; differently we wouldn’t do it.”
I’ve been meddlesome in imagining for a prolonged time, though I’ve usually now started in earnest. we do it on my own, though an app or anything.
I keep my skin-care slight simple; differently we wouldn’t do it. Face wash, toner, afterwards healthy oils—such as calendula—before moisturizer. Calendula is very, unequivocally soothing
and unequivocally good for recovering my skin when it’s had a lot of object exposure. we intend to use sunblock, though we don’t always.
I have a unequivocally dry complexion, so we use avocado oil to clean off my makeup. It’s peaceful and doesn’t frame my skin. I’m an ambassadress for Lancôme, and we adore a Lancôme Advanced Génifique Hydrogel Melting Mask ($15), that is good for hydrating. we transport so most that it’s indeed utterly vital, usually to feed a moisture.
Right now a makeup product I’m amatory is Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara ($25). It’s really, unequivocally black, and that’s good for me since I’m dark. Oftentimes, mascaras are on a grayer side, so a contrariety isn’t as pointy conflicting my skin.
My makeup artist, Nick Barose, taught me how to request lipstick better. You have to start from a center of your mouth and work outward, rather than a other way. I’d been doing it a conflicting approach forever. His process gives we some-more control and creates a focus some-more even.
