Monique, a Brooklyn childhood behavioral specialist, has the most amazing vintage style. Here, she shares her beauty tricks, including a weekly ritual for glowing skin and the inspiring lesson she learned while traveling…

Do you usually wear makeup?
I went to a girls’ high school, and the other students all wore makeup. When they took it off in private, they didn’t look like themselves! I didn’t want my “makeup face” to become the norm, so I’ve never worn a lot. But I ramp up in the winter months when the wind and cold can make my skin look dull, or whenever I don’t get enough sleep. My favorite things are MAC Mineralize Liquid Foundation, which has SPF 15, and MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, to even out my skin tone. The other thing I always wear is eye shadow. I have oily lids, and the woman at the MAC counter told me that shadow absorbs the oil and gives them a little bit of shimmer. Right now I’m using the L’Oreal Color Riche palette in Nude #2. I especially like the plum color, which goes on close to my skin tone. I usually just apply it with my finger!

What do you love most about your look?
My skin. I love how vibrant it looks after a few days in the sun. I was born in Queens, New York, but my parents are from Port au Prince, Haiti, and I feel a strong connection to both my Caribbean and New York roots.

How have your Haitian roots influenced your style?
People in Haiti want to put their best face forward. You can go deep into the countryside, and you’d see little kids wearing uniforms that have been ironed to a crisp. Haitian kids are taught to always present their very best self. People there are not into “casual.” Growing up in Queens, I was always overdressed, even in kindergarten! I had ruffly socks and my mom put ribbons in my hair. I would take them out on my way to school, then have the big kids help me put them back on the bus so she wouldn’t feel bad. To this day, I am never underdressed for anything.

Are there any family traditions that you’ve kept up?
I’m not sure if it was just my family or if it’s true of Haitian people in general, but growing up, there was a huge focus on earrings. All of our ears were pierced when we were babies, and you weren’t considered presentable unless you had earrings on. To this day, I never leave the house unless I’m wearing earrings. When I’m thinking about what to wear to a wedding or a party, I plan my outfit around the earrings. Two of my favorite jewelry sellers on Etsy are Fierce Deer and Moxie Scissorpants. I get tons of compliments when I wear their stuff. When my daughter was five months old, family members would say to me, “She’s so old and she doesn’t even have earrings yet!” I finally caved and took her to get her ears pierced.

What’s your daily skincare routine?
I love Clarins products and have used them for years. The Cleansing Milk with Alpine Herbs is really lovely. It’s a very soothing cream cleanser, and it clears away makeup without being drying. I also like the Toning Lotion with Chamomile, which is very light. Recently, though, I decided to switch things up a bit. One of my favorite YouTubers, Francesca of Hey Fran Hey, recommended an oil cleansing regimen, which I’ve been trying for the last few months. I cleanse with pure organic almond oil, then tone with Thayer’s Cucumber Aloe Vera Witch Hazel, which feels refreshing and balances out the oil.

Almond oil is such a miracle product! I use it for so many things.
Almond oil is so good! When I was pregnant, my cousin recommended I use it on my belly, and I didn’t get any stretch marks. I also used it on my daughter’s bottom when she was a newborn, because I knew it was pure. If you want to give it a fragrance, you can add a few drops of another essential oil, like lavender, but I like the way it smells on its own.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

How did having two older sisters influence your style?
I remember learning the word “outfit” from my oldest sister. She would tell my parents she needed new outfits, and I wanted to have them, too. Her style was very Annie Hall — loose-fitting khaki pants, penny loafers and a lot of J. Crew. My middle sister went through a lot of different phases and trends, like hip-hop saggy jeans. We went to Catholic school, so weekends and dress-down days were our time to show who we really were. They would take me thrifting to find funky outfits to wear, and it definitely influenced my personal style.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Villard

Did you have any other inspiring beauty figures?
Growing up in Queens, I was one of the youngest girls on my block. Some of the other girls were similar to us in that they were first generation, and some were born in other countries, like Jamaica, Panama and Barbados. We would all go shopping at the mall, and there wasn’t any value placed on being thin or being curvy. One’s size was one’s size and that was that. It was more important that your clothes communicated your personality.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

What body products do you use these days?
On my body, I moisturize with homemade oil that I learned about from another favorite YouTuber, Whitney of Naptural85. It’s a combination of olive oil, jojoba oil, castor oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil and vitamin E oil. I make a big batch every couple months. In the summer, when it’s humid and hot, I’ll switch to Kiehl’s Crème de Corps, which is lighter.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

How do you dress it up for special occasions?
For dates, weekends and special occasions, I’ll break out the red lips! One day, I went into a shop in Park Slope and the woman behind the counter had the same complexion and the most beautifully bold red lips. She told me it was Ruby Woo, and I ran right out and bought it. Since then, it’s been my go-to. I feel so good in it, and I like that it’s a classic shade that flatters so many different skin tones.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

Do you have any beauty “secret weapons”?
I like to get facials from the Clarins spa. It’s amazing but expensive, so I only go a couple times a year. I like that they don’t do anything invasive or overly abrasive, but you leave with perfect skin. I figured you probably wouldn’t notice a difference the first time, but afterward my mom was immediately like, “Your skin looks amazing!”

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

How do you maintain that “facial glow” at home?
The facialist at Clarins told me you should masque on Sunday and scrub on Thursday. It’s a good way to make sure your skin is exfoliated and deeply cleansed without overdoing it. For my weekly masque, I use Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Mask. For the scrub, I love Burt’s Bees Citrus Facial Scrub, because it’s not too rough and makes my face feel really clean. It’s great to travel with — when you get off a plane, your skin feels weird and dry and the scrub is so refreshing.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

What’s the most drastic change you’ve ever made?
Chopping off my locs was certainly the most drastic thing I’ve ever done. I was planning to grow my hair to my waist, but felt I needed a change, so after ten years of growing them out to my mid-back, I cut it. I was a high school English teacher at the time and under a lot of stress, so I felt like I needed to start over. I kept seeing so many beautiful Afros and wanted to have one, too. It’s a lot more work than I anticipated, but I’m really happy I did it. Plus, sometimes I’ll get my hair professionally braided or twisted, which helps protect it and makes the journey a bit easier.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

How do you care for your hair?
I have highly textured natural hair — on the spectrum of curls, my hair is the tightest of curls. I need to moisturize it daily. At night, I spritz my hair with a combination of aloe vera juice and water, and twist it using a combination of shea butter and homemade oil (the same mix I use to moisturize my body). When my hair isn’t styled into twists or braids, I’ll also do a weekly treatment — either a protein treatment using yogurt, eggs and honey or a hot oil treatment. My hair loves the Shea Moisture line of products — I use the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque, and shampoo with Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl & Shine.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

Where do you find your amazing clothes?
I’m very inspired by 60s fashion and love vintage clothing. I’ll always search Etsy for “shift dress” or “high-waisted mini skirt.” These days, you can even type in “Mad Men dress” and lots of great things will come up. For a long time, I was channeling my inner Peggy Olson. She had the best clothes! Earrings and shoes are the only things I always buy new.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Villard

What else inspires you each day?
I’m a behavioral specialist, which means I help kids with special needs improve their social skills and learn to pick up on nonverbal communication. Some kids have trouble with things like subtleties and body language, and I help by shadowing them both in their homes and schools. I absolutely love working with kids — they’re so funny! They’re very honest and there’s a lot of pure energy. They’re not overthinking anything!

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

Do you have any guilty pleasures?
One of my friends grew up in Chinatown, and she taught me the wonder of a good foot massage. When we need a little treat, our “thing” is we like to go eat Chinese food and then get a 60-minute foot massage. It’s amazing.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

How do you like to wind down at the end of each day?
In my twenties, I was a lot more anxious and would negatively overanalyze my every move. Now that I’m a little older, I like to end the day by thinking about what went well and what I can change for the next day.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

How has having a daughter influenced your view on beauty?
Right now my daughter’s world is small — it’s limited to family and her tiny nursery school — but the women in her life all look very different. I don’t want her to buy into any one standard of beauty. I want her to appreciate the diversity of women. I want her to recognize that beauty is flexible and isn’t limited to a narrow standard.

My Beauty Uniform: Monique Viard

Last but certainly not least, what is your beauty philosophy?
Fourteen years ago, I had the opportunity to work as a translator in Haiti. Every morning, another member of my team would wake up around the same time. We would brush our teeth and wash our faces outside, using the bucket we were provided. I’d ask him how my face looked and if there were any toothpaste marks on it, and I would do the same for him. That was the closest thing I had to a mirror. Stepping away from my own vanity allowed me to see so much beauty — I saw beauty in the smiles of children and in the way the community came together to support one another. What’s gratifying to me is noticing the beauty in others— not just in what they wear and how they look, but in the way they interact with others, or in the way a friend is raising their child or caring for their aging parent. So my beauty philosophy is to notice the beauty in others and to share it with them.

Thank you so much, Monique!

P.S. More lovely women share their beauty uniforms

  33. Kirsten says...

    I love this piece! While I’m about as see-through/pasty as they come, Monique, your approach to beauty resonates with me more than almost any other Beauty Uniform piece. Is that a Yayoi Kusama sculpture that you and your daughter are enjoying? She’s one of my faves…

  34. Love Monique’s philosophy.

  46. Veronique says...

    Absolutely LOVED the Beauty Uniform and am currently jotting down many of the items listed to purchase. I can’t help but repeat myself, but COJ is by FAR the best Lifestyle Blog around. I can’t help but wonder when you guys’ book deal(s) will come knocking (if they already haven’t.) I’d be first in line to pre-order. Happy Holidays!

  47. Julie says...

    I really liked reading this. Thanks!

  48. Romina says...

    This is my favourite beauty uniform, ever! What lovely style and attitude! Thank you for sharing.

  49. Helena says...

    Monique’s beauty philosophy is wonderful. Thank you!

  50. I share the earrings idea with her (Middle Easterns like to pierce the ears young too) and of course love her lipstick choice. Something else I noticed early on, when she didn’t want her normal face to be the makeup face because you couldn’t recognise yourself otherwise is exactly the reason why I wear simple makeup, I don’t want to rely on that either

  51. Angela says...

    Excellent post! It is always great to see a woman of colour featured in such a positive way. Thank you!

  52. KylieO says...

    Holy shit, this woman is cool. LOVED reading this. Gorgeous!

I LOVE these and LOVE this blog- I feel so connected to moms and women I don’t even know but feel I actually do- sending light and love to all of you and many thanks for sharing

  54. Karen T. says...

  55. Tracey says...

    One of my favorite beauty uniforms, yet! Beautiful woman with so many lovely things to share!

  56. Kristi says...

    I have the palest of white skin and also love Ruby Woo. So when they say that it works on many skin tones, that is right on! What sort of magic is in that tube?!

    Loved this interview, her style is phenomenal and Monique is beautiful inside and out.

  57. Ellie says...

    My favourite feature of this series so far, although all th women who’ve been featured are lovely! Thank you for sharing this exquisite woman’s story.

  58. Becca says...

    Such a beautiful woman in every way! Thank you!

    How lovely she is–inside and out. This was a pleasure to read.

  60. Joselle says...

    I loved this. So many great tips from a truly stunning woman. Thanks for featuring women of color. Lifestyle blogs are so often lacking in diversity. Keep it up!!!! Thank you.

  61. Nicole says...

    I normally don’t comment, but I just had to on this one. So, so, good, especially her beauty philosophy. That really is a lovely way to think about beauty. Great series!

  62. Cynthia says...

    Monique glows outside and inside! Her skin and hair are beautiful! Her daughter is adorable.

  63. Pip says...

    Perfect example of true beauty being more than skin deep, what a lovely, beautiful woman!

  64. Monique is gorgeous in all aspects. Great beauty uniform, especially loved Monique’s tips. I enjoyed her easy going style. Thanks Jo!

  65. Beauty uniform just hit a record high! She’s breathtaking and thoroughly inspirational. Brava!

  66. Jenna says...

    What a lovely woman!

  67. Katie says...

    Best Beauty Uniform so far! Please include more women like Monique who have jobs outside of fashion/beauty/art!

  68. Love the pregnancy pics! The comments about earrings were spot on- I’m second generation Cuban and it’s the same!

  69. CC says...

    Beautiful woman inside and out…I’m always impressed how uniquely beautiful NY women are! Thanks for sharing Jo.

  70. Tee says...

    Lady crush! What a lovely human being!!!

  71. “Noticing the beauty in others” resonated with me. Our world would be so different if we all did this!

  72. Linn says...

    I’m glad I read this one through to the last line. Beautiful beauty philosophy!

  73. Wow! She is so radiant and truly an inspiration. Beautiful,inside and out.

  74. Tory says...

    this is wonderful. I love this series, but this profile in particular is really resonating. I want to print out everything Monique said and plaster it all over the place. Thanks Monique!

  75. What a lovely profile! I love what she had to say about raising her daughter around all different profiles of women and teaching her that women come in all different shapes, sizes and colors. I feel the same way about raising my daughter. Very much enjoyed this post!

    hammyta.wordpress.com

  78. dinah says...

    After reading this post, all I can think of is WOW! I am in awe of her beauty and philosophy of noticing and sharing the beauty in others instead of trying to conform to one set of beauty standards.

  79. Madeline says...

    Oh my gosh, I totally love this! So wonderfully authentic. Like Monique, my beauty role models have always been women who have fun with clothes and makeup to express moods, evoke different eras, and make themselves feel good. It’s so nice to hear someone articulate these things so well! And her style is awesome. Totally killing it.

    • Madeline says...

      Oh, and I also went to Catholic school, so I totalllllly get/remember the freedom of “dress down days.” Liked being reminded of that excitement!

  80. Allison says...

    This is my favorite beauty uniform to date!

  81. Theresa says...

    LOVE!

  82. Tee says...

    ‘One’s size was one’s size and that was that.’ Wow…so simple and beautiful. I think something just changed for me in how I need to regard myself. Thank you. ❤️

  83. She is so beautiful, inside and out. My favorite yet of this series. Could she share where her lavender peep toe flat sandals are from?

    • They are Bass but from a while back.

    • If you search Bass Huarache Sandals you can find a similar pair.

  84. Caraline says...

    This was such a good one. What a lovely person!

  85. tyler says...

    She is lovely :)

  86. Lauren E. says...

    Love love love this series! And clearly it’s time for me to start investing in some organic oils.

  87. erin says...

    That last paragraph is so, so inspiring. What a powerful lady!

  88. Anitra says...

    This one might’ve been my favorite!

  89. Lesley says...

    Gorgeous! Amazing style! Stealing the mask/scrub idea. Adorable little one too!

  90. Ben Moise says...

    It is quite obvious the photographer loves his work as well as his subject, who is simply stunning.

  91. Emily says...

    I enjoyed the balance that Monique seems to have found between the external and the internal. She takes care of herself and invests in her body, but appreciates the internal qualities that make up beauty, as reflected in her beauty philosophy. I truly enjoyed this, thank you!

  92. She has such great sense of style and beautiful skin! I really enjoy these interviews and always learn about new products I wanna try.

  93. Stacey C. says...

    A babe, inside and out. This is the best beauty routine you have shared so far… see the beauty in others and share it. Gah. I am keeping that one at the front of my brain forever.

  94. Hae-Lin Choi says...

    LOVE Monique and her amazing style. Everytime I see her, she has the most amazing, colorful outfits. Also, her daughter is the cutest. Love her simple philosophy on style and beauty. Such a great profile!!

  95. What a beautiful, uplifting perspective on life and beauty. And after reading her product list, I can’t help but think she probably smells so good!

  96. Carol Wayne says...

    What a lovely woman……beautiful inside and out! I wish every student had such a healthy example in front of them every day!!

  97. Milou says...

    She is BEAUTIFUL!

  98. Maria says...

    Gorgeous woman!

  99. Bri says...

    yay, Monique! Looking pulled together and fantastic even when playing on the floor with a group of young children. This is by far my favorite beauty uniform yet! :)

  100. Vicki says...

    Love her!

  101. Amber says...

    Oh I loved this one so much! Her beauty philosophy is so wonderful.

  102. Capucine says...

    What a great attitude, along with the style! I second the commenter above who can’t imagine feeling so beauty-positive. I love the white cotton romper! And the photo with the…mylar pumpkin, is it? That baby girl has got it good!

    I am getting an education on african-american hair care, I am humbled by how much work is put into protecting and styling on a regular basis – until this series, I never imagined that – when I asked a friend and she detailed what she does, I felt like whoa! Maybe that is part of your strong beauty sense, all that love you’re putting in!

  103. Alex says...

    THIS WOMAN!!!! What an absolute dreamboat. I love love love this series.

  104. Like the others said she glows and has the best smile!

  105. Rachel says...

    Really enjoyed this post and Monique’s refreshing take on both beauty and style. Scrub on Thursday and Masque on Sunday might have to become my new weekly beauty ritual for 2016 too, it sounds lovely!

  106. Joanna,

    I love that you find such strong, thoughtful, and gorgeous women to profile! I adore this series (almost as much as the Motherhood Around the World pieces).

    It almost makes me want to get off the couch and put something on besides my pjs. Almost, but not quite. :)

  107. Jessica says...

    amazing.

  108. She is beautiful!!! Glowing, with beauty and happiness. Love it.

  109. Fiona says...

    This beauty uniform may be my favorite so far. Monique sounds like the sort of person I want to surround myself with, and I love how much of her post is about diversity and people just being themselves (including the fact that most of her beauty tips are natural and/or homemade). Thank you so much for sharing!

  110. I love this one! She glows from the inside.

  111. Veronica says...

    Love this! Favourite one yet!

  112. Kim says...

    Absolutely love her comment about shopping at malls and not even thinking of sizes as shameful. Imagine just dressing for your personality as an adolescent — as someone who grew up fat, I can’t even imagine such an amazing view on body image.

    Wonderful, seriously!

  113. Liz says...

    She is gorgeous! Great beauty uniform!

  114. Ellen W says...

    What a beautiful woman with a beautiful philosophy!

  115. I love this beauty uniform! And Monique is SO right – Ruby Woo works on EVERYONE!

  116. Um…style ON POINT.

  117. M says...

    Hands-down best beauty uniform yet. Monique is so REAL!!

  118. claire says...

    loooooove her style.

  119. Priya says...

    Could get obsessed with her blog!

  120. I love this beauty uniform post, Monique looks like so much fun and has the greatest smile! I love the almond oil tip, I like using oils to moisturize and have used coconut oil for lots of things but never tried almond oil.

  121. Love her beauty/life philosophy!

  122. Ashley says...

    Absolutely loved this beauty uniform. Monique has the most amazing style and hair!! She is gorgeous and I love her beauty philosophy. Thanks for sharing!
