The wardrobe stylist and author of “Closet Control” dishes on what beauty products she keeps close at hand
At 45, less is definitely more when it comes to makeup, but not when it comes to my dry skin. I cleanse, tone, use serum, sunscreen, a tinted moisturizer and eye cream. I brush minerals on with more sunscreen, use a little blush, do my eyebrows, add lip gloss and go.
Overnight skin ritual:
Since I am so good in the morning I can sometimes be really bad at night. But I do love a good towlette makeup remover with a rich, heavy night cream that my skin will drink, topped off with eye cream.
Who cuts/colors your hair:
If I were to have to commit to who I am more attached to between my dogs, boyfriend and hair dresser, it would be a tight race. Afshin Ahmadi at Estilo Salon has been cutting and coloring my hair since 1995 and is in fact my go-to glam god for all my clients. Afshin prescribes a rock ‘n’ roll pretty and go type of styling. He just gets my hair and if you sit in his chair he wants you to look like a girl he would want to date—he gives good sleepover hair.
I wash my hair every day but don’t always weigh it down with shampoo and conditioner. It’s left over from my days of being a modeling agent. Models were to go to shoots camera-ready with dirty hair and that is something I steer clients both men and women toward. Bed head is the best.
Favorite eye look:
I’m forever wishing I will come back Asian in my next life. I love to darken the inside of my tiny eyes and line the inside of my rim only. My eyes droop with mascara and eyeliner if I try to rim underneath, so just lining the inside actually opens up my dark brown eyes.
It’s gotta be a gloss to help shine up my dry skin and keep me looking dewy.
Nail color of the moment:
I’m loving bright red nails in gel. I have super-duper strong nails and the happy red shade and long length reminds me of my first formal in high school. Yep, ‘80s.
I love anything fig, but I used to be a citrus/sandalwood girl.
“Never without” product:
I’m never without a pedicure.
Secret to staying young and beautiful:
It’s more like a secret to staying ageless and immature—good genes from my parents. I love a good body scrub, major body lotion, plenty of cocktails and being happy with getting older versus trying to fight it.
