MAKE's mission is clean skin care using innovative skin-safe synthetics which Carrie is fiercely passionate about clean formulas because when she feels good putting on makeup, she feels she's practically mediating.
Melissa: What is your particular morning routine and particular nighttime routine?
Carrie: My morning is the most important time of my day because it’s when I have my alone time. I love waking up early and taking my time, drinking coffee, scrolling tiktok or IG, finishing an episode of tv from the night before or online shopping. I really need to start with unfocused ‘free’ time so that the rest of the day I can stay focused and on schedule.
