Talking Beauty and ‘Family Time’ with Angell Conwell

If you take a look at actress, Angell Conwell’s, acting resume, you will see that she is not new to the game.  She has had roles in some of our favorite films such as ‘Baby Boy’, ‘Soul Plane’, and ‘The Wash’.  We also saw her in Nelly’s ‘Batter Up’ music video, and now we get to see her grace our TV screens.  She currently has recurring roles on the Young and the Restless as the high powered attorney, Leslie Michaelson, and as a wife and mother of two alongside Omar Gooding in Bounce TV’s ‘Family Time’.

Angell is balancing a full load with her roles on ‘Young and the Restless’ and ‘Family Time’ and she cites, “prayer, coffee, and extra vitamins” as getting her through.  Her days would typically run from 6am – 12am with her various call times for both shows so rest at the peak times of her work is almost nonexistent.  However, she is willing to put in the time for the work that she loves.  Additionally, she is able to draw energy and similarities from her characters so that she can relate and that it can be more natural for her to play the roles instead of burdensome.  “If I don’t feel a connection, I usually do not involve myself with it.”  Angell has grown and matured and therefore has become more particular with what she is associated with and it has certainly placed her in a great position for future projects.  She sees herself leading projects and being behind the camera to direct and produce.

While her work is definitely at the forefront of her focus right now, Angell takes the time out to pamper herself as well.  When it comes to beauty, one of her secrets is to tackle yourself from the inside out by, “drinking plenty of water” as she feels that “people underestimate the power of water and vitamins.”  She also believes in a good tinted moisturizer.  Her favorite tinted moisturizer is Laura Mercier, and here at Kontrol we give it two thumbs up as well.  It has been her go to product for a few years.  She has tried other brands, like NARS and Tarte, but remains loyal to Laura Mercier because it is that good!

While her tinted moisturizer is a staple in her beauty routine, she also loves a good lash and a “snatched” eyebrow.  She likes fiber lashes and will do falsies and believes that lashes are definitely essential to bringing a makeup look completely together. “You need a good lash and you have to do what you have to do to make it happen”.  And we agree!

When it comes to fashion and who she looks to for inspiration, Janet Jackson fits that mold perfectly.  “She does not try hard in anything she does, including fashion and I like that.” She also likes Rihanna’s fashion sense because she seems to always stay true to her personality and what she is feeling at the moment.  In general, Angell gravitates toward women who have a similar shape as herself because she can readily see herself in what they wear.

Overall, Angell is definitely an actress on the rise that we will continue to keep our eyes on to see what she has up her sleeve.  One of the things that we learned from Angell is the importance of grinding hard, but taking time out to take care of yourself.  After all, that is the true essence and foundation of any beauty secret, and folks, you can’t buy that in a bottle.

Be sure to check out Angell on ‘Family Time’ and also on the Young and the Restless’!

Androgynous anchored with class and splashes of trendy is how I would describe my style with my bottom line style category being boho-chic. I love to challenge myself with new experiences and surrounding myself with positivity. Detroit raised me and Atlanta is grooming me. Sit back and enjoy the ride...I promise you this will be good. http://pinkklipstick.com
