Do you have any beauty products that you always use before you film one of your podcasts?
It’s funny you ask because I started noticing that I would put on makeup for my podcasts. A lot of them I do over Zoom because a lot of guests are on L.A. time. I was putting on bronzer and all this shit. And I was like, “Wait.” … If you have that little glowy filter on Zoom and if, before you go on Zoom, you just apply a serum and a moisturizer and a lip, you look really, really glowy—more than with makeup. I highly recommend that. Next time you go on a Zoom call, don’t put on makeup. Put on skincare stuff. I got that idea because one of my guests came on and was shining. And I was like, “What do you have on your face?” And she’s like, “Oh my god, I just did my skincare routine.” That’s how I got the idea. I was like, “Hell yeah, I’m coming on my podcast with just moisturizer and serums, and you look like a glowy goddess.”
That’s amazing and also a pretty easy tip to follow, which is great.
I feel like that’s my number one life hack right now. Honestly.
Do you have any other beauty tips or product recommendations that you’ve picked up from any of your podcast guests?
I’m not a huge makeup girly. I try. I just feel like I’m not the best at it. But I feel like I’ve gotten little tips. I had a podcast guest on recently. I literally didn’t know you have to wet your Beautyblender before. … I forget who it was, but they were talking about it. She was just like, “Listen, I just take the Beautyblender, I soak it, I put on some concealer, and then I put it all over my face.” That also gets ya dewy.
Is there anything about your beauty routine that you think would surprise your followers?
I’m so not mysterious. I don’t think there is an ounce of mystery left. Is there anything they don’t know? Like, honestly.
I mean, they’ve seen your blackheads in the Bioré strip.
They see my blackheads. I’ve told them that I can’t do laser, that I have to get waxed because I’m too light. I literally have said everything. What else is left? How many times I shave a week? Not often. There’s not much mystery left.
Well, that’s a good thing, though. That’s why people like following you, right? You’re very real.
Yeah, they like it. But also, they know that I’m constantly striving for some mystery—unsuccessfully.
If you could give your younger self any advice, what would it be?
I love that. It’s a little cheugy, but I love it. I would tell myself, keep dreaming girl. Keep being that delusional little self of yours because you’re not wrong. Where your head’s going, you’re gonna get there. When I was younger, these were my dreams, what I’m doing now. So many times, I would doubt myself and be hard on myself. Like, why are these your dreams? Are you a superficial beotch? Why don’t you want to save lives? I would tell my younger self to listen to herself and not doubt herself. She’s going to do what she wants to do.
I love that. I guess keep being a dumb bitch, right?
[Laughs] Keep being a dumb bitch.
