Where Alexis Nikole Nelson aka The Black Forager Gets Her Signature Hot Pink Lip Gloss — Interview

“My purple banjolele is a great source of self-care. It resonates like a banjo, but plays like a ukulele. (It doesn’t have that pesky fifth string.) Music really helps ground me.”

“Every morning, I write down in a composition notebook what I need to do to win the day. Usually it’s a combination of a few menial things and one big thing. It feels great because then when you get [those things] done, you feel like you won. I love that I can set myself up to succeed.”

“After eating at Kajitsu, a Japanese restaurant in New York City, I became obsessed with umami-rich green teas like Ocha & Co. Organic Gyokuro. Starting the day with something warm and comforting makes a huge difference.”

“I’ve always loved playing dress-up and thus, I love makeup. I use ColourPop Cherry Crush Shadow Palette on my eyes and cheeks. It makes it very easy for me to achieve my dreams of being a little rosy Rococo baby. I have never had such a highly pigmented gloss as Trixie Cosmetics Floral Fixation. I feel like the [hot pink] color was made for me.”

“Before Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer, I would put makeup on and be like, ‘I look weirdly orange, but this is [all] we have.’ So thank you, RiRi, for creating such a vast color range. It blends really nicely.”

“I didn’t realize how much better makeup would lay on my face if it was mega-hydrated all the time. The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid stands up to the dry Ohio air.”

“Because I eat so many different wild foods, I’m usually not lacking in your big guys, like vitamin C. Ritual Essential for Women Multivitamin 18+ helps [fill in the gaps]. And they’re minty, which makes them easier to take.”

“I tried Kinky-Curly Original Curling Custard on a whim and fell in love with the smell and the definition it gives without making my curls crunchy. A little goes a long way on my wet hair.”
