I started working in the beauty industry in 2006 and quickly fell in love with everything that had to do with skincare and makeup. My beauty routine went from 5 to 45 minutes overnight. I was obsessed with having all the new industry must-have beauty products on the market. I guess you could say I was what you call a beauty junkie.
I spent thousands of dollars a year trying to transform my look. Layering on products for no reason whatsoever. I felt lost in a sea of products never truly feeling my best self. I was buying products just to have them. The majority were not even right for my skin. I loved how beauty products transformed my look, however I was always trying to be someone I was not. I even went to the extreme of dying my hair completely blonde. Let’s just say that was not my best look ever.
During my journey of starting AYI Beauty, I began to embrace my natural features. Simplifying my beauty routine to only a few effective products in both makeup and skincare. As I look at myself in the mirror today, I see the real me. Embracing my natural features and finding products that give my look a boost not masking my true self. I feel confident and it is amazing to get results from just a few products. Plus, I no longer have to spend money on botox and lip filler.
Using effective products that aligned with my skincare and makeup aspirations was a game changer. I started to see real results, enhanced my look with minimal makeup and saved myself time and money. What was priceless was how I see myself today and no longer need to be someone I am not.
Confidence is the ultimate way to feel beautiful. Finding the right products best for your lifestyle and goals makes all the difference. My daily must-have products are a cleanser, eye cream, and tinted moisturizer. I add a serum when my skin needs a boost and exfoliate a few days a week to keep my skin smooth and refined. I look forward to taking a few minutes to invest in myself everyday. Blocking out time for self-care that does not have to take all day.
