Entrepreneur Hannah Bronfman Shares Beauty Essentials & Healthy Snack Recipes in Lifestyle Mirror
26-year-old DJ, model and tech entrepreneur Hannah Bronfman was tapped to cover Lifestyle Mirror Magazine‘s Food & Fashion issue in March.
Inside, the gorgeous co-founder of beauty booking app Beautified, Acme restaurant investor, rising fashion star and clean-eating advocate shares some of her favorite beauty products and a few healthy snack options.
She encourages people to get rid of processed foods, forget white flour and start cooking at home. “Food is definitely a hobby and passion of mine,” she says. “I’ve devoted myself to expanding my palette.”
For her Candy Kennedy-photographed shoot at Toro NYC, titled “Girl on the Go,” Hannah wears selections from DKNY, Michael Kors, Christian Louboutin and more chosen by stylist Alex Sweterlitsch. Her tresses are styled by Laura Polko, while makeup is done by Ashunta Sheriff.
Check out more photos from Hannah’s beautiful editorial, her beauty essentials and snack ideas, snippets from her interview and a behind-the-scenes video.
5 beauty products she can’t live without:
- Lipstick Queen Vesuvius Liquid Lipstick $24
- Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder $34
- Peter Thomas Roth Preview CC Cream $48
- Maybelline Great Lash Mascara $5.19
- Luca’s PawPaw Ointment $22.99
On why she co-founded Beautified:
“I’m working and DJing and need to utilize the daytime hours a little better. I found myself on a street corner, calling around, Googling, Yelping and trying to figure out where I could squeeze in a last-minute appointment. Beautified was born in that frustration. My co-founders Annie Evans and Peter Hananel and I got together….and now it’s a living, breathing app.”
On what she likes to cook:
“I normally love to cook a good dinner. Quinoa eggplant parm, or a spinach lasagna without sauce,” she says. “I do a lot of baking mostly with gluten-free flours. I make a raw cheesecake that’s gluten- and dairy-free.”
Some tips for someone who wants to start eating healthier:
“When you’re shopping, try to stay away from processed foods and white flours. Going gluten-free isn’t for everyone. Try to understand what you’re eating and what types of oils are being used. It’s not that great to cook with olive oil at a high heat because it releases toxins. I mostly cook with coconut oil.”
3 healthy snack recipes:
- Cacao pudding with avocado
- Healthy bowl with quinoa
- Green smoothie with kale
On being an entrepreneur:
I don’t think I really understood what I wanted to do with my life, which is why I’ve put my hand in many different things. I have a love and passion for wellness and food. When I was in college an opportunity came to me, and I went for it. That opportunity turned out to not be the best for me. That led to another investment in a different restaurant that has been really amazing to be a part of. It’s all about not taking my failures lightly and learning from them. That’s what brought me to where I am today.
