#BehindTheBeauty: Maria Pearl

We sat down with our Brownness Babe of the week, Maria Pearl, and got the tea on her beauty routine! 

What is your beauty routine? 

I exfoliate! I know it’s bad but I’m Nigerian and we are rough people so I don’t care), then I use all Simple brand products, so I use my cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Next, draw on my eyebrows because I have like 7 hairs on each side, then paint the rest of my face in time for the school run. Welp.

 At night, it is basically the same as the morning but I’ll use wipes to take off the first layer of makeup, micellar water for the rest of it, then continue with the other products. 

What would you say to anyone who wants to get glowing skin like you?


Babe..my skin is far from glowing (laughs). Drink water- the obvious, don’t eat too much Pringles or Ice cream and try not to sleep with your makeup on 4 times a week. But most importantly if you’re nice to your skin, your skin will be nice back to you. Hashtag simples.

Editor's note: Check out this lovely YouTube video where Maria breaks down her skin care routine!
