Mia Fiona Kut is the reason why we are able to bat our eyelashes with the level of enthusiasm we currently do. As the girl boss behind Luna Nectar - an innovative lash, brow, hair and skincare company - we were intrigued to get her insight relating to all things beauty!
FR: Who is Mia?
MFK: Mia is a passionate business owner with big ideas, lover of green beauty, holistic healing, and everything space-related; and is also active in the film industry as an actress and director.
FR: Why should Luna Nectar products be a staple in everyone’s skincare / hair routine?
MFK: A variety of reasons! Our products are natural, vegan, and cruelty-free; and they are simple in the sense that we use quality active ingredients with no fillers. Our products are multi-tasking achievers and are easy for on-to-go application and busy schedules - we believe in the less-products-is-more approach in a beauty routine.
FR: What’s life like for you outside of being a business owner?
MFK: Outside of being a business owner, and especially during the time of a pandemic, life has reached a joyful equilibrium. I strongly believe in a healthy work-life balance, and doing what we can to feel good and nourish our minds and souls during this uncertain period. Currently I like to take walks, snowboard, do yoga, cook new recipes, and read. I’m definitely indulging in Netflix more than ever before. It’s also a great time to learn something new that you’ve been putting off!
FR: How do you incorporate self-care in your day to day life?
MFK: I make sure I get a full 8 hours of sleep, and in the morning, my ritual is to have a matcha latte and not skip breakfast. I’ve found that these simple habits make a huge difference in my energy and mindset. I also make sure I get enough exercise, and for days that are particularly busy, to unwind with meditation, candles, or a bath.
FR: Where do you think the beauty industry is lacking?
MFK: I think the beauty industry is following a trend right now, in particular aesthetics or messages that are being put out, or certain ingredients that get hyped up. While these are all positive messages, I think there is a bit of over saturation of uniformity. I would love to see more transparency, sustainability initiatives, and hard science behind products, and that’s what we strive towards at Luna Nectar.
