“During the day, I give my skin a little bit of a break, so I usually just use moisturizer and mascara. I like the new Ck one mascara. It’s really black and it stays on really well.”

“I curl my lashes every day, always. It brightens the whites of your eyes and we all swear by it. I have the Shu Uemura [eyelash curler]- it’s definitely considered the best. I curl before [I put on mascara] because otherwise my lashes get all stuck. ”

“I use different moisturizers at different times. Crème de la Mer really does hydrate your skin when you’re traveling. One of my favorite things to do with it is a full-on face massage with acupressure. It’s not eh easiest thing to do on yourself, but I work a lot with [makeup artist] Mark Carrasquillo and he does the best facial massages. It wakes your skin up.”

“It’s good to use antiaging creams from a very young age because that’s kind of the point. They’re not going to turn back time, they’re more preventative (Sisley Paris Sisleya Global Anti-Aging cream).”

“You don’t want [your foundation] to look all pancake-y. This is a serum and a foundation (ck one 3-in-1 face makeup SPF 8) so it fixes what you wants it to fix, and otherwise it keeps you looking really natural.”

“I know you’re supposed to take all of your makeup off at night so I just use this cleanser from the pharmacy in Paris – the Créaline (Bioderma Créaline H2O Solution Micellaire) one that all the makeup artists use. I use it every night and every morning. “

“I’m always putting loads of lip balm (Sisley Confort Extreme Levres Nutritie Lip Balm) on because my lips are really dry naturally.”

W Magazine October 2010
“Proper lipstick goes all over my teeth, and five minutes later, half of it is gone. But I do really like the idea of putting lipstick on and still hydrating your lips at the same time. These are quite moisturizing. If I do use a bit of color, I like it to look natural - Ck one pure color lipstick in Dollface.”

US Vogue September Issue 2010
“My hair gets very tangled when I wake up in the morning, and it’s so painful to brush it out. My friend [hairstylist] Paul Hanlon gave me one of his Tangle Teezers (in Bubble), and I think it’s the best invention. It doesn’t hurt to brush with it! It’s definitely one of my secret weapons.”

“I colored my hair a bit last week to brighten it up. I see Nicola Clarke at John Frieda in London. She’s the best. Occasionally, after coloring, I put on a Fekkai protein mask and let it soak in while I’m in the bathtub.”

“I also like to put some Kérastase serum on my ends because the get very dry from all of the curling and blow-drying on shoots.

“I know it’s a bit cliché to say, but Brigitte Bardot is my beauty icon. I just love her smoky black eye, bed head-y kind of look.”
