She publishes her style and travel tips on her blog, Luci’s Morsels, sharing her view with the world. Luci took the time to answer our questions about blogging and go-to makeup tips, so check out her views below!
1. When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging in March 2012 – crazy to think it’s been so long. At the time, I was struggling to be happy in my PhD program. I wanted to start selling baked goods and started a blog to go along with it. I talked about dessert ideas for 4 days before deciding I desperately needed to broaden my horizons. As I worked through grad school and made decisions about the path of my professional life, my blog kept keeping me going until I finally realized it was the path down which I wanted to travel! I’ve been figuring it out one step at a time since then!
2. What are your favorite makeup products?
I’m big into tinted moisturizers and a great mascara. I love tinted moisturizers that have a decent amount of coverage and some shimmer. I really want to try a tinted oil soon though! I have a brand and color picked out when I’m out of my current product assortment! I’m also just starting to make the shift toward plant-based and green beauty. I feel like it’s so much better for my skin. I know it’s going to take a while to make the full transition, however, so I’m taking that one step at a time as well!
3. Any tips for women with oily skin?
I actually don’t have oily skin, but I’m really big into washing your face really well before bed with lots of water (to ensure you rinse off ALL the makeup and cleansers on your face). Past that, listen to your skin. If it’s angry, be gentle. When it seems strong, then you can try to brighten, clear up, and whatever else. If you battle your skin, you’re pretty sure to always be on the losing end!
