Meet Bianca Valle
on her morning routine
My alarm goes off at 7 am every morning so I can make it to the gym before work. After my workout, I come home, shower and sip green tea while I put my outfit together. Then I curl my eyelashes, grab an apple and I'm out the door off to Milk Studios.
on her love for photography + her growth with it
I have had a camera in my hands since my freshman year of high school. When I came to the city to attend NYU, my love for taking photos grew immensely.
I believe I've always had an eye for color and composition so I just let it take over whenever I shoot. I am lucky that I trust my own instincts and they haven't failed me yet!
I started producing my own shoots once a week and interning all while balancing school work. I never went a semester without an internship which really paid off in the long run. I learned a lot at NYLON Magazine and Refinery29. These are just a couple of the companies where I’ve worked while in college. During all my internships I would ask to be on set. This gave me an opportunity to get on-set experience which elevated my own shoots, this lead to my photos getting picked up by major publications like i-D and Dazed. I graduated a semester early from NYU and am now the Community Manager at Milk Studios.
on being community manager at milk
As the Community Manager, I run all of Milk's social media as well as choose talent that we involve in our projects. It is a creative position that gives me a lot of freedom to mix my own vision with Milk's. My team is amazing and makes every day so fun! Balancing a full time job and side projects is not as easy as you think. My weekends have become so precious because those are the only two days I have for self care, but I have to make time for my art as well. It is tough, but I have always been very good with time management so I have been able to find a way. Lucky me!
on her current personal style
I am super into hoodies right now. I never thought I would be a hoodie girl, but here I am spending all my money on hoodies! I love the skater boy/street wear look. I am definitely not super well versed in this look, I am such a wanna be skater, but I love it! I shop absolutely everywhere, from Kmart to Gucci.
on her beauty + skincare routine
I use a lot of Sunday Riley products. I wash my face twice a day and I swear by sun block. Recently, I discovered putting 100% rosehip oil on my face, and it has changed the texture of my skin for the better! I also always look for products with tea tree oil in them. It's antimicrobial and it's natural. Homemade honey masks and homemade egg white masks make a huge difference with my skin. I also benefit from oil pulling with coconut oil and also putting it in my hair for moisture.
There is never a night when I am wearing less than four products on my face. My night routine is all about skin care. I believe having healthy skin is the best accessory. I love drinking tea, putting on a face mask and painting the night away. It makes me feel so accomplished and relaxed at the same time.
