I am Judicaelle Irakoze. I always find it hard to to say who I am. Simply because I hate putting myself into a box. Well, I am, a young ambitious woman. I own two online stores : www.abigaellecloset.website and www.littleparadise.website. I'm also studying Biochemistry in Portland, Maine, US.

I believe being beautiful is fully embracing who you are. It comes from deeply loving yourself.

My skin is normal. My concern lately are the dark spots on my right cheek.

I have a simple morning routine. I wash my face with Chanel Le Blanc Immediate Brightening Gel. I apply Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum as a toner and Chanel Hydra Beauty Creme as a moisturizer

My evening routine starts with using micellar water to wash away impurities, then Chanel Le Blanc Immediate Brightening Gel to clean my face. I use Chanel Le Blanc Brightening Serum and Chanel Le Blanc Brightening Creme as a night moisturizer . I use a pineapple enzyme face scrub 2 times a week and Alphee Paris shea butter as a moisturizer. I do a mask as well once a week using L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay.


I wash my body every morning with St Ives oatmeal body gel and moisturize it with Tree Hut Tropical Mango moisturizing lotion. Every night, I use Tree Hut Tropical Mango body wash and moisturize with the mango body butter.


I am on my transitioning journey to natural hair, I have been having braids after braids now I have locs. I wash with Shea Moisture retention shampoo. Then I condition with Shea Moisture restorative conditioner and curly enhancing smoothie.


My favorite foundations are Chanel's Le Teint Ultra Tenue and Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless. I prefer gloss over lipstick. Maybelline lip gloss is great! When I do wear lipstick, I like MAC.

For self care, I exercise every morning. It liberates my mind and gets me ready for the day.
