“Morning: I’m kind of old school with my beauty routine and it is really minimal, it’s really just water and moisturizer. I use Joëlle Ciocco moisturizer. Moisturizer is really my thing. In the winter when it gets really dry I’ll use a light layer of the Rodin face oil underneath the moisturizer.

When I have very early morning call times and during fashion week, I use the Shu Uemura Depsea eye mask. I have a stockpile because it’s now discontinued. So if you ever see them anywhere, send them my way! I don’t really wear any makeup, sometimes I’ll put a little something on my eyes. I like NARS Paper Tiger, it’s kind of a cream eyeshadow. I just put a little on my eyes. It almost matches my natural eyelid shade and just gives it a little bit of a boost.

Day: I bring with Clé de Peau concealer in case something comes up or I look a little tired. NARS Douceur blush, if I need a little color and always, always Aquaphor.

If I’m doing makeup for the evening, I use Chanel Vitalumière foundation and MAC Haute and Naughty mascara. I don’t generally go for a lip, really just Aquaphor.

Evening: I use either the Lancome makeup remover or the NARS one. And then I wash my face with water again.”
