Likely due to the fact that I started posting more pictures of myself, I’ve been getting some questions about what beauty products I use, which I couldn’t be happier to discuss!
I’m a product junkie, straight up. However, I am not a label junkie, so most of my fixes come from the drug store, my fridge, or tried and true “stuff that works”.
Background: I’d have to double check with my Mom on this, but I *think* my first love in fashion was makeup. I remember sneaking and putting on her makeup (and fibbing about it, sorry Mom!) at a pretty young age. That turned into my very first “real” job ever, as a “beauty consultant” (read: sales girl) at Pure Beauty (RIP) in LA, CA, then to my first “real” internships – as Beauty Intern at Teen Vogue under two of my favorite people ever, Holly Siegel and Eva Chen, and Beauty Intern at Siren PR in NYC.
I’ve done makeup for countless theater productions, friends, family, and a short stint as a Makeup Artist at Sephora in NYC.
Foundation: MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 in NW45
Curler: Tarte Eyelash Curler (better than Shu Uemura, and cheaper)
Brows: LORAC Take a Brow Powder if I feel like it
Lips: Sugar Scrub with Sugar + Vaseline , Chapstick or Carmex
Body: Sabon NYC Body Oil in Amber, Hempz Lotion, Bio Oil, or whatever else is around – but I obsessively moisturize!
Hair: Confession – my hair is fake (shh!), but I still use Mane ‘n Tail Shampoo, Carol’s Daughter, and/or Ojon’s Hair Treatment (amazing!) and I cut my own hair/bangs.
ps – I would also suggest water, but I’m so terrible at that… I hate water.
