In the ultimate quest for inner beauty and outer glow, Marie Claire asks our favorite trailblazers to share intel on finding balance in their busy lives. Read it all here, in Beauty Inside & Out

Sharon Chuter has been working behind the scenes to make beauty more inclusive for decades. And after working with legacy brands like L’Oréal, Revlon, and Benefit Cosmetics, the Nigerian-born exec decided there was still more to be done to make herself and women of color feel represented. So in 2018, Chuter took inclusivity into her own hands and founded UOMA Beauty, now a major leader in color cosmetics and skincare. Here, how the founder, CEO, and creative director keeps her cool while changing the game.

Inner Beauty

A Glass of Bubbly:

"Moet Nectar Imperial is my go-to [champagne]. Yep, this is my version of a yoga mat on a Friday evening. After a hectic work week, I settle down with a glass of sweet bubbly and anticipate the weekend."

Forvr Mood Candles:

"I was never into candles, but this brand and the pandemic converted me."

Lush Bath Bombs:

"I love dropping this bath bomb into the tub and doing a soak. I come out smelling like candy, so it’s a good feeling."

My puppy Leo:

"No living being makes me smile and beam from the insides like my little pup!"

Outer Glow

UOMA by Sharon C Supa Natural Glow Vitamin C Serum:

"This is the ultimate radiance cocktail with 20 percent vitamin C, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid."

Dr. Sebagh Deep Exfoliating Mask:

"It mitigates the need for traditional scrubs, and gives you the most radiant skin."

UOMA Beauty Say What?! Foundation:

"This foundation is just the best, and it gives a vibrant matte finish that mimics the skin’s natural finish."

Recipe for Success: Chuter's Eggs a la Française

Make the eggs:

Add 3 large eggslightly beaten with 3 tbs water, to a saucepan. ("Most people use milk, but water makes them fluffier.") Cook the eggs, constantly stirring, for 5–8 minutes. Once eggs have started to fluff, add 1 tbs truffle oil. Top the eggs off with cracked pepper and truffle salt. ("There’s never been such a thing as too much truffle, so if you have shaved truffle laying around, add that in too!")
