  • Describe yourself in 3 emojis: 
  • What is your dream job?

Honestly, my dream job is to work as a Disney princess at Disney World because HOW COOL. But my actual dream job, it would be so amazing to be a head anchor for the Today Show, a girl can dream right?

  • What is your #1 Soap & Glory go-to product?

If I have to choose just one, I would pick the Sexy Mother Pucker lip-gloss of course, the perfect way to finish any look! I literally always have one in my backpack, coat pocket, and purse.

  • What is the best beauty advice you’ve ever received & who gave it to you?

My mom has always told me that it is never too early to focus on skincare and moisturize every morning and night! Also, drink tons and tons of water!! Staying hydrated allows for a beautiful and healthy canvas, and you can then take on any makeup look. My skin care holy grails are the S&G Speed Plump day and night moisturizers along with Face Soap & Clarity face wash.

  • Do you prefer a glossy pout or a bold matte lip?

GLOSSY POUT! no doubt! I feel so confident when my lips have an extra shine, it truly tops off any natural or glam look. But, it’s a love hate relationship during Minnesota winters when its -10 degrees and windy as hell, say hello to hair stuck on frozen lips!!

  • Which Soap & Glory cosmetic is your fave for a big night out?

No doubt the Archery Brow Crayon & Gel, this perfectly shapes my brow with ease and creates a statement for any big night out, and they stay in place all night! This product is truly a gift from heaven!

  • What’s the biggest beauty mishap you’ve ever had? C’mon girls, SHARE!

7th grade, my old friend group got really into crimping hair, and it was the worst thing every introduced. I use to think I had mermaid hair every day at school when in reality I looked like the Cynthia doll from Rugrats, and I still am having to deal with healing my hair to this day!

  • After a long day, what one S&G product are you reaching for in the shower?

For sure the Flake Away body scrub, I feel like a whole new woman after a long and exhausting day! Scrub the negatively away 🙂

  • Which Soap & Glory mini is your go-to for traveling during the busy holiday season?

For on the go, I always bring Hand Food mini with me. Especially during the cold and dry weather, this is perfect for saving cracked hands.

  • What advice would you give to your 16 year old self?

Please pay attention in Spanish, it really would help you in college :’)

But on a more serious note, the words sorry and love are thrown around often, and it’s best to stay cautious of who you accept these words from! It will save you in the long run!

Also, keep and open heart. No matter how damaged, it is best to treat everyone with kindness, compassion, and respect (even those you don’t like very much). This will serve you well, and you will sleep better at night.
