A Beauty Minute with Akua Shabaka

3 years ago by

Morning: I wash my face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser with my Vanity Planet facial brush and for my moisturizer I use Alba Botanica Hawaiian Moisture Cream. I’ll only use makeup for a shoot or if I’m going out. If I do wear it, it’s usually Sephora concealer and powder, Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder in the color Lit, and NYX Dewy Setting Spray, plus mascara

Day: I always keep coco butter for my hands, some random lip gloss, Lip Medex, Altoids, and a dark lipstick in my bag.

Night: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser with my Vanity Planet facial brush, I’ll mask with Aztec Clay and tone with Witch hazel or apple cider vinegar. I use coconut oil for makeup remover and either shea butter or my Alba Botanica Hawaiian Moisture Cream for my face.

Akua is an artist and designer who owns some seriously retro vibes (seriously, check her Instagram). She’s interesting, empowered, and perfectly individual. Not to mention her insanely perfect skin and hair.
