Eden Gilliam of Eve Milan New York - Part II: The Maker

How do you start your day?

In my email, that’s so horrible! I need to be more conscious and pray first but that’s honest. I most definitely look in my email first thing in the morning.

Do you have a morning/evening ritual?

My morning ritual or one thing I can’t live without in the morning would be a glass of water and a fresh green juice or warm tea. I believe in waking my body up gently. At night one of my mantras is, never miss your nighttime skincare routine. And I also love to stretch at night.

What is your daily skincare routine?

I’m a 3 step Queen! My life is hectic so I cleanse with Gentle Cleansing Gel, a little pick me up with a Hydrating Toner and then SPF. At night I cleanse, exfoliate and treat with a serum. 90% of the time that’s my routine.

Do you have a daily wellness routine?

Deep breathes, letting go of things that don’t make my spirit feel good. And definitely keeping an agenda. That might sound far from a wellness routine but organization keeps my mind less stress, less chaos. A planner is my wellness staple.

What is a beauty product or tool you can’t live without?

Mascara & Lip Gloss

What do you do for R&R when you need to reboot?

I lock myself in the bathroom, light a candle and soak in magnesium flakes. I love a good bath and some Jhene Aiko.

What are your must haves when traveling?

Money!! Lol A pair of comfortable sneakers for sure.

What selfcare advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?

“Eden be confident” loving yourself and believing in yourself gets you so far and it helps you to avoid situations you don’t belong in.

Do you have any beauty/wellness advice for our followers?

Learn how to manage your stress. I see how it can effect so many areas of life negatively. As women we deal with sooooo much and we are so big on looking good and looking like everything is okay. Truly be well on the inside.
