Beauty Bender creative director

Alexis JohnsonMorning skincare routine:
SkinCeutical’s Daily Moisture mixed with SkinCeutical’s C E Ferulic serum and Phyto Corrective Gel, then Obagi Medical’s Elastiderm eye cream around eyes and Natura Bissé’s Diamond Extreme Eye energizing cream under eyes, followed by a healthy layer of Elta MD SPF 45. My everyday makeup routine is minimal: MAC’s gold Powersurge eyeliner, Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto Voluptuous in Very Black, Smashbox’s Blushing/Peony cream cheek duo and a hint of lipstick. I almost always skip foundation.

Overnight skin ritual:
More SkinCeutical’s Daily Moisture and Tazorac

Who cuts/colors your hair:
Chase Kusero at Prive Salon on Beverly Boulevard in L.A. cuts and styles it; Fabrice Henssens at Cristophe Salon in Beverly Hills touches up my balayage highlights once to twice a year.

Hair habit:
I wash it even less than I brush it, so Klorane’s Dry Shampoo is a MUST.

Favorite eye look:
Nude lid (Anastasia’s Eye Shadow Palette #1 does the trick!) with a stroke of Chanel liquid black liner, finished with a couple swipes of mascara.

Go-to lipstick:
Bobbi Brown Pink #6

Nail color of the moment:
Chanel’s Peridot topped off with a coat of high-sheen Healthy Hoof Hoof Lacquer (a thin coat of this made-for-horses top coat every few days is THE secret to preserving a manicure)

Signature scent:
Stella McCartney Stella–has been since it debuted in 2003

“Never without” product:
Bag Balm for my lips, by far the best lip treatment on the market.

Secret to staying young and beautiful:
Three liters of water a day, monthly facials, Tazorac, daily SPF and Botox.
