My mother and grandmother taught me first to look to my spiritual wellbeing for beauty. Growing up, I was raised with holistic, naturopathic, and aromatherapy from as early as I can remember. After leaving home, graduating from design school, a few years of living in London, Hong Kong and a lot of traveling to numerous amazing countries along the way, I returned home feeling extremely inspired but also exhausted and disconnected from the creative career path I had started on. I began listening to my inner self, physical wellbeing and began to research what I was using my skin. It was truly a wake up call for me to slow down, live more mindfully and explore my personal wellness from a different perspective. I began to explore beauty products made with greener ingredients and without animal testing. Together with my sister (who is a makeup artist) a creative pursuit was born. We created a small collection of mineral makeup that we wanted to ensure was made without animal testing or animal products. Through this process, I discovered that beauty meant something else to me. Beauty was more than simply what you put on your skin, but rather a way of life, how you feel, the choices that you make to live gracefully on this earth. As life evolves, Modern Minerals is evolving too and has made a new turn into clean hair, lifestyle beauty and to keep striving to be more environmentally conscious as we continue to evolve this collection we call Mo Mi. I’m so over the moon and incredibly grateful to all of you who have joined me and our little MM family along this journey.
