Hey Beauty!

Thrilled to have you here! πŸ™‚

As a skincare junkie, with a passion for connecting with others through the world of beauty. I am passionate about creating content that inspires and motivates women to understand that it’s their unique power that makes them beautiful.

I have a fascination with the science behind skincare and product formulation. I have applied this curiosity to currently attending The Aveda Institute to receive my Esthiology License. This curiosity sparked from a consistent Acne breakout that led me to research all things skincare and wellness. I believe that a consistent beauty regimen and wellness practice is one of the dimensions of self care that can enable anyone take their power back.

I curate my best findings and create engaging, positive content on my blog, BareFacedFemme. It merely began as a way to track my “Acne Journey,” which later grew from 2K followers to 28K in only 9 months.

I have an interest in all things beauty, design, and marketing. With a public relations and advertising background, I have a focus on forging new pathways to a better tomorrow through the cross-section of beauty and wellness.
