What sort of message about inner and outer beauty are you hoping to pass on?
For me, itâ€™s about being my authentic self. Itâ€™s about embracing changes and mistakes while really continuing to grow. Thatâ€™s something Iâ€™m really concentrating on right now. Iâ€™m only six months into motherhood, so I donâ€™t have any major statements yet to make, but I really do feel that kids learn by example. So, if I work on myself and continue to be open and continue to grow as a person, I think thatâ€™s a good place to start.
How has your beauty routine changed since becoming a mother?
Iâ€™ve always loved to have a ritual, something that I always do, no matter where I am. So, the way my beauty routine has changed since becoming a mother is that Iâ€™m still really diligent about my ritual, but itâ€™s just at different times of the day. Sometimes itâ€™s at four in the morning. Sometimes itâ€™s at two in the afternoon. Iâ€™m no longer on my own time. I donâ€™t have a nanny and Iâ€™m a very hands-on mom. But as tired as I am, I do find those few minutes, absolutely. I keep my ritual. I sneak those moments. The minute my daughter falls asleep for a nap or for the night, Iâ€™m just doing all my stuff.
Is motherhood a huge part of your life?
Absolutely â€“ itâ€™s the biggest part of my life. Everything has more weight â€“ who I align myself with, what companies I align myself with, what Iâ€™m out there promoting, how Iâ€™m promoting it. Everything, for me, goes back to the thought, â€˜will I potentially embarrass my little girl at some point?â€™ I know I will embarrass her, Iâ€™m sure of it. Thatâ€™s what moms do. But I want to make sure that she is proud of me.
