About Liz

Liz is a 31 year-old Oncology nurse from Nashville, TN. She is currently getting her Masters in Nursing at Duke University to become a Nurse Practitioner.

The Interview

Jordan: Let’s start with your skincare. What’s your daily skincare routine?

Liz:I wash my face every A.M. and P.M. since 6th grade because my mom made me (laughs). Now I thank her for it because my skin is in great shape. I use Proactiv at night and Neutrogena cleanser in the morning. Another tip from my mom was to start using spf in my early 20s. I use La Roche-Posay Anthelios Suncreen Fluid as my daily moisturizer. It’s like superhuman spf. Very powerful.

Jordan: Tell me about your makeup routine.

Liz:It’s a 5 minutes or less routine every morning. It’s simple and mostly of Bobby Brown products. So I don’t use foundation, I just use a touch of bronzer. A really small amount of each product to look fresh faced. Bronzer,mascara eyeliner on top lid,cream eyeshadow stick in a rose color to make my hazel eyes stand out, powder blush. I add eyeliner on bottom and a pop of lipstick color for night time. I use a special brunette mascara for my brows. I don’t pluck my brows at all. I plucked too much in college and they stopped growing (laughs). For my everyday lipstick, a favorite is Mac Lipstick “Brick-o-la” (pictured below).

Jordan:What a pretty neutral lipstick! You have such a pretty smile!

Liz: Aww, thanks! I was the first girl to get braces in 5th grade on my top row. Fun fact: when I’m at work, my most complimented feature is my teeth!

Jordan:Let’s talk about your lip colors.

Liz: I like to wear all the lipsticks that you gave me (laughs). My go-to is a bright red for going out because it is an accessory. My style is classic with a twist, I wear a lot of neutral colors in my closet and the red just pops.

Jordan:How about your morning routine?

Liz:I like to have my “quiet time,” where I wake up an extra 30 minutes early to drink coffee and read from a spiritual book. In my journal, I write down my prayers and things I’m grateful for. I learned this from my mom.

Jordan:How about your night time routine?

I wash my face with Proactiv. I shower at night. I like to massage my skin with Thistle Farms Body Butter in lavender. It relaxes me and helps me get ready for bed. I like to read or meditate, also.

Jordan: Lavender is so relaxing! What about your haircare routine?

Liz: Less is more, meaning I try not to wash it more than 2x a week. Dry shampoo is my new bff, the brand is Not Your Mother’s. I either diffuse my hair or I use my Beachwaver. I don’t use hairspray. Volume has never been a problem as my hair type is thin but voluminous!

Jordan: Would you mind sharing your self-care rituals?

Liz:I do my quiet time in the A.M., I meditate at nigh.t I recently started doing 4-7-8 Breathing, and yoga classes at the Y.

Jordan: Favorite scents/perfume?

Liz: Lavender, incense, La Vie Est Belle by Lancome—I confess that I bought it more for the name than the scent. It’s floral.

 

Jordan: How do you relax?

Liz:I like to play the guitar and sing. I love to read spiritual books, like The Art of Power by Thich Nhat Hanh. I frequent the library every few weeks for new spiritual books. I really like Brené Brown because she is down to earth and real with hard topics.

Jordan: I’m gonna have to take those recommendations! Who are your beauty inspirations and why?

Liz: My mom Peggy because she is an example of timeless beauty. The most beautiful thing of all is having a full and centered life. I get complimented on my skin by my coworkers. I say that it comes from within and I get those compliments because I’m serving others and doing what I love. Beauty comes from the inside out.

Jordan:What do you love most about your beauty behavior?

Liz:I like that my routine makes me feel refreshed and it’s easy!
