On DIY Beauty Hacks She Learned From Her Family
"Creating your own hair mask was a big thing in my family growing up. Mayonnaise, olive oil and eggs – that mixture of ingredients on your hair would add so much shine. This is something I did weekly at home!"
On Celebrities Like Alicia Keys Who Are Choosing to Go Makeup-Free
"I think it's awesome! That's literally me on vacation, every day, all day. I love the process of getting glam, and I love makeup. But I think it's awesome to know – and feel – that you're just as beautiful without."
On Her Bridal Beauty Routine
"I really want to make it timeless, that's really important to me. I don't want to go trendy! My children will be looking at these pictures 50 years from now, and I don't want them to think, 'What did you do to your hair?' So there probably won't be as much contour. I want to look like myself and go for a more natural, effortless look — and keep it as chic as possible."
On Her Favorite Hair Care Products
"It's hard to choose just one! I'm obsessed with the SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex Shampoo ($11) and Conditioner ($11) and the Marfura Oil Hydration Intensive Masque ($13). I use them every week and literally used the mask the entire time I was in Puerto Rico recently. The Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Conditioning Shine Gel ($11) and the Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth & Tame Thermo-Protect Milk ($11) are my go-tos for styling, especially while working on The Real. That last one is a must-have when I start heat styling again during the season."
On Her Advice For Fellow Brides
"Planning a wedding should be joyful; it should not be stressful. My best advice is not to stress, especially on the day of. Always remember what having a wedding is all about, what marriage is all about. It's not about the dress, decoration, or venue. It's about marrying the person you're so in love with. Even when I get slightly stressed out, I remind myself that all of those details are insignificant – it's about him and me choosing to live a life together!"
