I have been on a mission to get fit. I’ve been pretty athletic my whole life–as a child I was a figure skater and dancer, in high school I was Varsity Cheer Captain, in college I trained and ran the LA Marathon, and in my early 20’s, I was a committed gym rat. The lure of the gym died quickly for me with all of the cool, new exercise classes that popped up around Los Angeles. I started barre classes about five years ago and fell in love. However, I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted. Sure, I’m toned–but I needed something to take me to the next fitness level to help me reach my goals.

Welcome to another installment of my weekly Beauty Edit! I am very passionate about no-makeup makeup, and I love trying out new tinted moisturizers and sheer foundations. In fact, I rarely wear medium or full coverage foundations because I like seeing skin.
You read that right, I like to see my skin! Believe it or not, I actually like the way my skin looks–freckles and all–which is a rare thing in the world of beauty bloggers and vloggers. I spend a lot of time taking care of my face with a relatively rigorous nighttime routine (I use about 10 different products and follow a somewhat Korean skincare regime,) so that I can have pretty skin… so that I don’t have to cover it up. A simple concept that I think a lot of people forget.
I have been obsessed with trying out new beauty products since I was a kid. My earliest memory of beauty was when I was about 3 or 4 years old. I remember my dad giving me a small bottle of Navy, a popular perfume in the ‘80s by Procter and Gamble, where my dad worked. I later learned that the bottle was merely travel size, but I still like to hold onto the memory that that Navy bottle was made just for me. Beauty is one of the most intimate relationships that we have with ourselves — the products that we choose to layer on our largest organ, the scent that we enjoy, a go-to hairstyle, the lip color we wear… All of these choices that we make from the millions of options that are advertised to us every single day. Navigating the beauty industry is a job in itself. What products are great? Which ones just have great marketing? And what underdogs deserve more attention? I currently create beauty videos for Refinery29, so I thought, why not start doing a beauty edit on my blog? It seemed like a natural fit. So I present to you, my skincare beauty edit.
I am thrilled to announce that I am looking for my first ever intern! While at USC, at had the opportunity to have 5 different internships, and I know how important and educational they can be!
