As soon as I wake up in the morning, before I even think about skincare or food, my daily self-care routine always begins with incense and meditation to release stress and set intentions for the day. I then play my quartz singing bowl tuned to 432hz to my root chakra in order to ground me and accept and release energy and vibration.

My diet has been plant-based for six years. I eat lots of organic fruits and vegetables when possible and supplement them with oil of oregano, black seed oil and sea moss gel. I begin the day with spring water and fresh pressed juice. I believe practicing this lifestyle and removing free radicals and toxins from my lymphatic system promotes a longer and healthier life.

As for my career as a professional makeup artist, a consistent skincare routine really is key to a flawless makeup application. Over the years, a process of trial and error has helped me find a skincare routine that works for me. This has led me to search for natural products with the least amount of chemicals so I don’t throw off my skin’s natural pH. In addition to my go-to beauty products  I use an at-home microdermabrasion device every two to three weeks, especially when I feel my skin is congested. It feels nice to get the perks of clean, glowy skin in the comfort of my own home.

However, some things are better left to the professionals. I had my eyebrows microbladed last year by Tina Lain at Gold Dust Cosmetic Collective. She saved me from my ’90s over-plucked brows. Also, it’s crucial to properly cleanse and treat my skin after heavy makeup application for events and photoshoots, so I visit Kim Ruiz of White Lotus Beauty Spa twice a month for a hydrafacial and high-frequency treatment.

By setting intentions, adopting a plant-based lifestyle and taking proper care of my skin, my goal is to maintain a holistic routine that doesn’t compromise one area of care for another.

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser

Available at Sephora

The regenerating cleanser is the best when it comes to refreshing and brightening my skin. The benefits of this luxurious cleanser include brightening, softening, polishing, cleansing and rejuvenating the skin.

Tata Harper Superkind Fortifying Moisturizer

Available at Sephora

This is a rich moisturizer that does not feel heavy on your face and absorbs within seconds after applying it. It smells great without an overpowering fragrance. It’s long-lasting and keeps its consistency.


Available at Natural Grocers

I love this lightweight cream moisturizer for days when I don’t wear any makeup. It’s light without a strong fragrance. I simply apply to my face and neck/chest area and go about my day.

Makeup Forever HD Foundation

Available at Sephora

I prefer a medium buildable coverage foundation that looks like skin once it is set. This foundation looks amazing on and off camera.

THAYER’S Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Toner – Rose Petal

Available at H-E-B

This alcohol-free toner is my favorite. After I wash my face I use a cotton round to remove any impurities left behind and tone my skin, leaving a light rose petal scent that feels lovely.

Sea Moss Rose Clay Mask


This mask is my go-to when I need to rejuvenate my skin midweek. It’s made with wildcrafted sea moss, aloe vera gel, spring water, rose clay, kaolin clay, rose hip powder, rose petal powder and organic natural preservatives. My skin has a subtle glow after, and feels so much cleaner!

Palo Santo Ritual Oil


This oil is my go-to for dry spots or anywhere on my face and body I feel needs an extra dose of moisture. It smells amazing, and I love that it’s handmade by someone who knows the importance of natural products for the skin.
