Meet Aretha Sack
ON HER MORNING ROUTINE
I wake up embarrassingly late after sleeping through no less than 10 alarm times and sprint to our office looking like shit.
on her personal style
I am broke because I own a small business but I like vintage. Aesthetically, I’m all over the map - from Axl Rose to The Undertaker. I shop wherever honestly.
on starting her business
In college I was selling custom nail polish colors, specifically a Tiffany’s turquoise that I couldn’t find. I would mix in colors and sell them to the girls at school for $5 a bottle while also waiting tables at night. I met Janine at an English class and she bought some of my Tiffany’s turquoise nail polish. After graduation, Janine called me and said she bought a business license with my name on it and so I decided to roll the dice and just do it.It was hard as hell both waitressing and launching a business at the same time.I strategically kept a job I hated as it was ridiculously easy and lucrative to stay inspired.
on knife throwing
I read Knife Throwing front to cover - I got it at a truck stop in Arizona and its actually taught me a lot.
on her skincare routine
I love me a face mask. I try to do that every day since I’m old as the hills now and I’m pretty rough on everything as you can see.
on her beauty routine
I like to play with makeup but I usually do simple because it’s hard and I’m always in some kind of rush but I’d like to get better at cool elaborate stuff. I always do mascara and brows with a black little wing on the corners. I use the Urban Decay Naked Palette, and LA-Splash Cosmetics Lip Couture Lipstick like products with minimal ingredients and I really try to avoid lotions with alcohol and the bad stuff. I love to moisturize proper. I also love the Versace Eros Pour Femme Eau de Parfum and Floss Gloss Smoke on the Nail.
