What is your bedtime skin care routine?
famous esthetician Joanna Czech Gave me good advice to start my evening routine early so I could relax and get to work.i use Bioderma Sensibio H20 micellar water Remove makeup and rinse with CeraVe again.Then I first aid moisturizer again. I love it; I’m not silent about it. It’s a little heavy, but it soothes irritated skin and leaves you feeling more hydrated when you wake up.
How would you relax at night if you could do it with your baby?
Otis hates going to bed because his FOMO is intense. His dream is to be awake 24 hours a day laughing, joking and scaring people. (He loves to scare and frighten!). But we finally got him into our bedtime routine. He has dinner just before bedtime and takes long walks. i love to walk It’s the ultimate winddown. Cam jokes that I’m the queen of “one more block,” “one more loop,” and “one more river around her bend.” Oates goes to bed at 7 p.m., so she drinks red wine or sparkling water from a fancy cup. I also have a fireplace so I love to light it up and watch movies with my face mask. I live in hot Southern California like it’s winter all year round.
How about hair care?
I like to do something new every 3-4 months. That’s the great thing about black hair. It’s very versatile.For braids and twists, Pattern Beauty has moisturizing hair mist what i really like.For straight style, I grab oui hair oil For shine, shine, shine. I feel like the bigger the curly hair the better.like briogio and Cantu curling cream.
What was it like being a black woman in the beauty industry?
On the positive side, it feels like Beautiful Black Girls has factions and alliances built in. We all have the same goals. It’s all about getting more black and brown faces everywhere. There isn’t a great deal of mementosism and otherization that is historically always found in white institutions. I saw my position as director of Elle Beauty as a platform for others. I was asking myself: How can we ensure that a community that has never been on or written for ELLE is amplified and empowered with the power to shape beauty coverage?
Who are your beauty inspirations?
Rihanna You will always be my North Star. I also like seeing cool people on the street. This skateboarder took the same train route as me when I lived in New York. She wore nothing but bright yellow and she looked so cool skating far. Finally, my son has perfect skin and perfect curls, so I am inspired by his constant (unattainable) charm.
Please tell us about your encounter with Rihanna.
I was shivering like a leaf. Her energy really changed when she entered her room from her stomach.She actually shines even more, which seems impossible. so Kind. She was so excited I just had a baby. full of complimentsShe is proof that you can meet a hero.
did you see the super bowl?
yes! Having been pregnant not long ago, I was in awe of performing on that stage when she was pregnant with her second baby. It’s hard to conceive even on a normal Sunday when you’re alone. There are also many hits. So many hits packed into her 12 minutes and cutting fan favorites how many can leave her room floor? please.
At work, I have spoken to many celebrities. what is it like?
I get nervous when I hear scary stories about celebrities becoming big divas. But I’ve noticed that the more famous people tend to be, the kinder and more professional they are. Jennifer Aniston was kind and hysterical. Kim Kardashian was relaxed and chill. Gigi Hadid has not been kind. And Cardi B gave me my favorite interview of all time. I still have the recorded voice on my phone. During our interview, she was babysitting a bunch of kids with her daughter, so she stopped and told me to stop bothering the babies. We work hard for all of us.
Speaking of children, what would you like to teach your son about beauty?
I hope he learns to see beauty in everything.
thanks so much, chloe!
