“Hiii! I’m Priscilla (@priscilla.quaye + @curlcilla). I was an executive assistant to Glossier’s SVP of promoting for a few a long time, but recently I started off a new role inside the organization. It is a strange time! Now I’m a content material studio manager on our artistic functions group. A primary operate of my position is developing picture shoots, which we simply cannot definitely do appropriate now, so defining my obligations has been challenging. But we’re all kind of starting up new positions in a way, and trying to determine out how to work in this new entire world. That part’s been encouraging.
Sporting my ‘fro is definitely how I truly feel the most ‘me.’ I’m tremendous little and it is pretty big, and I can’t rely the amount of situations I have been questioned if my hair is a wig and where I got it! My go-to fashion is a clean-n-go—I used to clean my hair weekly, but now that it’s gotten so lengthy, I’ve prolonged it to just about every two weeks. I constantly use a sulfate-no cost shampoo which is gentler on my curls, and then finger-detangle with a low-priced, tremendous slippery conditioner like Aussie Mega Moist. Following that, I often deep affliction! I normally get some thing by Shea Humidity or Camille Rose Naturals, and then use a Huetiful hair steamer to aid the therapy penetrate my strands. [Ed note: Priscilla’s steamer is discontinued, but here are some similar ones.] To model it, I just use a go away-in from Kinky-Curly and a styling cream.
I by no means, ever skimp on my skincare regime. I’ve had genuinely lousy eczema all my existence, so as substantially as I like striving new items, I check out to err on the side of caution. In the morning, I wipe down my experience with a cotton round and Simple’s Micellar Water, which carefully cleanses and doesn’t aggravate my sensitive skin. Just after that I moisturize with Cerave PM Moisturizing Lotion. My eczema hadn’t crept up to my encounter right up until before this yr, when I commenced noticing flare ups all-around my eyes. In just times of covering it with La Roche-Posay’s Lipikar Balm, the eczema cleared up! Now I put it all over my eyes every single morning and every evening whether or not I have an lively patch there or not. Previous is sunscreen—I will not go out without having sunscreen. Like several other people today of shade, my challenge was normally obtaining a person that did not depart a white solid. I acquired Invisible Protect a number of months just before I begun at Glossier, and have employed it each and every day due to the fact. I adore that it’s 100-percent apparent, presents me a great dewy glow, and performs wonderful beneath makeup.
I’m the youngest of four children, and I was a preteen all around the time my siblings begun leaving for college or university. Enjoying close to with make-up was a thing I could do by myself when I was basically an only little one, and even nowadays I solution beauty with Entertaining in intellect. 1st I do my base, which is pretty significantly normally the exact same. I did not luck out in the brow section, so of course I lust after thick, fluffy brows—isn’t that generally how it performs? I have attempted every thing, but Brow Flick was daily life-altering for me. The drawn-in brow hairs look so real looking. I increase additional depth with Boy Brow in Black, and then I adore to do a mad voluminous lash. I’ll start out with Maybelline Lash Discovery, which is a bottom-shelf mascara (literally on the base shelf at every drug store). The little brush lengthens and separates, so it is a great foundation coat. Then I do a person or two coats of L’Oréal Voluminous on just my best lashes for a doll-like appear. As an alternative of combing the mascara wand from the root of my lash to the top rated, I hold the wand even now and blink the mascara on to my lashes. I obtain it creates far more depth and gets into the nooks and crannies superior. Right after that, I blend Haloscope in Topaz and Quartz in a ‘C’ form from my cheekbone to under my brow bone. Becoming glowy is my variety one objective in life.
The moment my brows, lashes, and pores and skin are performed, I can have enjoyment with color. I have such a vivid memory of having my first trip to MAC and purchasing their Chrome Yellow eyeshadow with my allowance—to be straightforward, I would nevertheless finesse that glimpse right now. If my lip is more tame, I adore a fun eyeliner like Colorslide in Early Woman or UZ’s yellow liner. And I like the bronze-y shade in Charlotte Tilbury’s Bella Sofia palette on my eyes if my lip is a very little out there. I’m not shy about donning any shades, and some of my far more obscure favorites are MAC’s Heroine, Nars PowerMatte in Finished it All over again, and Fenty’s Midnight Wasabi, this outrageous eco-friendly. But I’ve been donning a quite 90’s lip currently, and my favored merchandise to do it with is MAC’s Cork lip liner. It’s one particular of the best ‘nude’ liners for girls of shade. I like to use it to fill in my lips, below a very clear lip gloss with no other lip coloration, or with MAC’s Fifty percent ’n Fifty percent all in excess of the top. KKW Beauty’s liner in 2.5 with their Creme Lipstick in 6 is yet another excellent blend. My go-to reds are MAC Ruby Woo with Cherry liner and Flesh Beauty’s liquid lip in Brazen.
My nails are my pride and joy. I do them each Sunday evening like clockwork—you will never see me with out polish on. I like my nails to be oval-formed and prolonged, and my top secret to keeping them powerful is moisturizing my cuticles each night with Olive & June’s cuticle serum. And Seche Vite’s Gel-Influence Major Coat is THE ideal. It dries so rapidly and leaves me with shiny nails all week very long. I also drive my fiancé to open deals, unbutton notably tight buttons, and open beer cans for me. But he likes my nails, so he generally allows! Basically, the 7 days he was heading to suggest, I was looking at slicing them down and starting up more than. Just about every time I’d talk to for his ideas, he was so adamant about not chopping them. I would’ve been SO upset if I didn’t have my signature nails in individuals pics!
I’m a night showerer. Dwelling in NYC, I require to clean off the grime from the day. For the reason that I have eczema, It’s truly crucial for me to make my showers brief and to not use something that will irritate or strip my skin. I use Cetaphil’s Mild Cleanser in the shower, and normally, often moisturize with their Moisturizing Product on moist skin when I get out. I have been working with it actually because I can keep in mind, and it’s a person of the couple merchandise that is thick and moisturizing more than enough to support preserve my flares in verify, but doesn’t leave that greasy feeling.
Just after a nuts working day, my nighttime regime is wherever I have complete regulate. The exact same Easy micellar water will take off glitter, stubborn liquid lips, and a few coats of mascara, and then I wash 2 times with Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser. I try out to use P50 V 1970 three nights a week, and the Aztec Indian Healing Clay mask with apple cider vinegar the moment a 7 days, on a evening I didn’t use the P50. I’ll follow that with a hyaluronic acid I’m not picky about (generally ours or The Ordinary’s) and moisturize with the Cerave. I constantly get deep, cystic pimples all-around my time of the month, so if I have any of individuals, I’ll assault them with this Signstek high frequency machine that I figured out about from Steph Shep’s Top Shelf. Then I throw on a ZitSticka pimple patch. I also like to enjoy other people’s routines on YouTube—beauty, skincare, hair, house excursions, ‘what I ate in a day’… I obtain so a great deal consolation in routines.”
