Beauty Bender editorial director

Kathryn RomeynMorning routine:
Le Mieux Vita-C serum, Clarisonic Opal around eyes, NUDE Advanced Cellular Renewal moisturizer and Kerstin Florian SPF (still in search of the right zinc SPF!). For my daily makeup, Chantecaille concealer, Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel bronzer, NARS Orgasm blush, YSL’s Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils, and a swipe of metallic shadow by my lash line: Chanel Ombre d’Illusion in Ebloui (reddish), Epatant (greenish) or Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill in Copper/Black. And Dior’s Lip Glow balm.

Overnight skin ritual:
REN’s Hydra-Calm Cleansing Gel with my Clarisonic brush, Kate Somerville ExfoliKate twice a week, Chanel Sublimage serum, Caudalie Premiere Cru eye cream and La Prairie Cellular Cream Platinum Rare or Sponge’s Krema Niktas. I also use Cane + Austin’s Retexturizing pads a couple times a year.

Who cuts/colors your hair:
I do highlights (Joel Warren at Warren-Tricomi) or balayage (Kim Vo) every 4-5 months. Always switching stylists; Rossano Ferretti was the latest.

Hair habit:
I rotate products consistently, but my absolute favorite is No. 4 L’eau de Mare (Hydrating) line. Serge Normant Meta Morphosis Hair Repair mask once a week. No. 4 Lumiere d’hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect and Kerastase Elixer Ultim while it’s wet. Always air dry.

Favorite eye look:
A slight cat eye with some color via MAC’s Fluid Line (in Dark Envy or Midnight Blues), Chanel’s Le Crayon Khol in Black Jade or Make Up For Ever’s metallic Aqua Eyes kohl pencils.

Go-to lipstick:
Givenchy’s Candide Tangerine lipstick orange for an occasion or summer day, Burberry’s Lip Mist in Copper for everyday.

Nail color of the moment:
Chanel’s Peridot (holographic green-gold) and Rococo’s 24kt gold leaf nail lacquer over absolutely anything.

Signature scent:
Marc Jacobs Blush since it debuted in 2004.

“Never without” product:
Cococare Cocoa Butter lip balm. Couldn’t live without mascara, either.

Secret to staying young and beautiful:
Tons and tons of water and products chock full of hyaluronic acid and vitamins.
