To say I've been into makeup and beauty since I was a child may be an understatement – just ask my dad, who let me polish his nails pink when I was five. Immediately after high school, I studied at Paul Mitchell School of Austin. I knew I wanted to focus on makeup application, which led to cosmetic tattooing. While my makeup routine may seem intense to some, it's my morning meditation, my zen time. 

I'm fearless when it comes to trying new products … and that may have been what led to my skin retaliating with constant breakouts. Taking my mom's advice, I put my money into skincare instead of skin cover-up. Regular visits to Gabby the Esthetician have changed my life. Having great skin means I can have fun with makeup applications – go big and glamorous and not look at makeup simply as a way to cover up. Makeup is a form of expression, and we should never be afraid of expressing ourselves! 


Zo Skin Health Gentle Cleanser
This one product has made a huge difference in the look and feel of my skin, and has helped with breakouts. I don't wash my face in the mornings, so this is the first step of my evening routine. 
Available at Halcyon Med Spa

Zo Skin Health Exfoliating Polish
I use this exfoliating cream twice a month. It polishes skin to restore a smoother texture and healthy glow, removes dead skin cells, and prevents clogged pores. Goodbye, pimples.

Zo Skin Health Complexion Clearing Masque
Love, love this masque! It's a natural clay-based formula that purifies pores and absorbs excess oil that can lead to future breakouts. This baby is on my face weekly, keeping my pores almost nonexistent. Hello, beautiful skin. 
Available at Halcyon Med Spa

CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion
Don't ever discount the quality of drug store products. This moisturizer keeps my skin soft and prevents dryness, all while being very lightweight. This is the final step in my nighttime routine.
Available at H-E-B

TuLA Glow & Get It Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm
You're never too young to use an eye cream! This one cools, hydrates, and brightens the look of under-eye dark circles – no one will ever know how hard you partied the night before. 
Available at Ulta

Elta MD UV Restore Tinted Sunscreen SPF 40
This, my friends, is the real secret to great skin. Protection from the sun's damaging rays is like money in the bank – money you won't need to spend on getting rid of wrinkles. Use it every day. Every day. This tinted formula means I can dash out the door in just a few minutes.

Lemonade Stand Cosmetics Lemon Cake Lip Balm
You never know who you're going to kiss! This goes on my lips every morning and every night to keep them moisturized and soft. It's vegan, cruelty-free, and local.
Available at Lemonade Stand Cosmetics

Kiss Ever EZ Lashes #01 Multipack
I like big lashes and I cannot lie. Technically not a skincare product, but you'll be amazed how dramatic lashes can improve your face … and your mood. Try a pair and get sassy.
