Founder, Space NK apothecary

Nicky KinnairdMorning routine:
Every morning I use my Clarisonic face brush with Elemental Herbology’s aromatic Cool & Clear cleanser, then Bakel’s P-Lipic Serum locks in moisture and helps strengthen my skin. Zelens’ Triple-Action Eye Cream keeps puffiness at bay and takes care of any fine lines. I then follow with Zelens’ 3T Complex Moisturizer and my Nia24 Oil Free SPF 30 sunscreen over the top.
My base makeup consists of By Terry’s Hyaluronic Face Glow No. 3 on its own or with her Teint de Rose Tinted Moisturizer No. 3 if my skin is feeling on the dry side from too much air travel. By Terry’s Blush Veloutee cream to powder blush in Apple Glow is my secret to a healthy, radiant look alongside her ingenious Touche Veloutee brush-on concealer, which sweeps away any signs of fatigue around the eyes. It never cakes or creases and is imperceptible to detect!

Overnight skin ritual:
I use Eve Lom’s treatment Cleanser to remove all makeup and the dirt and grime of the day and I then apply Kate Somerville’s Quench serum, followed by Dr. Marko Lens’ Zelens 3T Complex Moisturizer and his Triple-Action Eye Cream. By Terry’s Baume de Rose SPF 15 lip treatment is a staple and I always keep a pot of this by my toothbrush and apply it every time I brush my teeth. When I am traveling or my skin needs an extra boost, I will use Joanna Vargas’ Rejuvenating Serum on my face, neck and décolleté.

Who cuts/colors your hair:
Serge Normant cuts my hair, and I go to Gina Gilbert at his downtown Manhattan salon for color.

Hair habit:
Blow-dries only when I have to, otherwise I am a wash and go person. My secret weapons are Serge Normant’s Meta Lush Volumizing Spray, which I use even when I air dry my hair, and Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray, which is fabulous for adding texture and volume on dry hair and doubles as a dry shampoo after yoga or the gym when time is tight.

Favorite eye look:
A light cat eye as per Dolce & Gabbana’s 2012 Spring/Summer collection, achieved using By Terry’s Ligne Blackstar liquid eyeliner in Black Fiction and two coats of her Black Lash Growth Boosting Mascara, eyelashes curled with my Space NK eyelash curler. My go-to eye shadows are By Terry’s Ombre Veloutee in Rose Mousse to cut any red tones on my lids and Kevyn Aucoin’s Essential Eye Palettes Nos. 1 and 6.

Go-to lipstick:
By Terry’s Rouge Terrybly No. 103 Plumping Nude paired with Kevyn Aucoin’s Lip Pencil in Bare.

Nail color of the moment:
Rococo Nail Apparel’s Nude 3.0 on fingers and their VIP Red on my toes.

Signature scent:
Laughter, my uplifting signature citrus blend that recalls my childhood summers in the Southern Mediterranean.

“Never without” product:
Eve Lom’s treatment Cleanser—my eye makeup remover, cleanser, toner and mild exfoliant in one handy pot, complete with muslin cloth.

Secret to staying young and beautiful:
Good nutrition, exercise, sunscreen and sleep. Regular top-to-toe exfoliation and a great antioxidant moisturizer also make a huge difference.
