With a YouTube channel which boasts of 3.5million subcribers, it’s hard to believe that Jackie Anna has been doing makeup for 12 years.
Doing away with the Strong Black Woman-this Nigerian-born beauty mogul is placing blackwomen at the forefront of luxury and self-care with her business endeavors. For one, Aina recently launched Forvr Mood, a brand that sells candles, pillowcases and headbands along with a lifestyle site “Lavishly Jackie”.
But one thing is for sure, Jackie doesn’t play with her skincare routine. The beauty mogul spends no less than 15 mind which consists of 10steps for her daily skincare routine. Her routine includes a hydrating toner, cleansing balm, moisturizer, two to three serums, essence and sunscreen.
Taking pride in the effort for her morning and night time routine Jackie Aina also exfoliates and busts out the retinol for good measure. When it comes to keeping her foundation in place here is Aina’s product choice:
Bolden Glow Hydrating Mask
The Bolden glow hydrating mask is her miracle face mask, she tells bustle that she applies the hydrating mask before getting into the shower because the steam works to seal in the moisture. Aina then washes it off afterward. She uses the hydrating mask when her skin starts to look dull. The end result? “My skin looks and feels really soft and plump after rinsing.”
Pure Silk Pillowcases
There are a lot of benefits using silk pillowcases and for Jackie Aina she uses her Forvr Mood Pure Silk Pillowcases as her beauty sleep essential. She tells bustle: All my skin care stays put when I sleep at night because silk absorbs less moisture than cotton. They also help protect my hair, and they’re pretty to look at.” You can shop a similar pair for $89 on Ulta.
Too Faced Hangover 3-In-1 Replenishing Primer & Setting Spray
This super hydrating, multi-tasking mist can be used as a primer before makeup, a setting spray to keep makeup in place all day, and a mid-day refresher anytime your skin needs a boost. Aina loves using it on her bare skin but also wears it is under foundation that’s a bit more moisturizing – prevents her makeup from separating.
