What are your game-changing beauty tips + tricks?
Carol: ALWAYS wear sunscreen, clean your makeup brushes often and let your skin “breathe” without makeup every once in a while!
What does sustainability mean to you?
Carol: Sustainability to me means living a simple life that creates no harm to me, the people around me and the environment.
What’s your morning ritual?
Carol: I wake up early, feed my baby, and make my coffee. I like to write down my most important tasks for the day and meditate on all the things I’m grateful for. A few times a week I exercise in the morning, and then take my shower and do my hair/makeup to get ready for the day.
