Beauty Secrets From Fashion Royalty
If you don’t know who Caroline Vreeland is, you soon will. The blonde beauty with an undeniable It girl quality is popping up all over the fashion scene. A talented singer-songwriter, Vreeland has already been tapped by Barbara Bui to sing at the designer’s Paris Fashion Week after-party. Fun fact: She is the great-granddaughter of the late fashion icon and former Harper’s Bazaar editor Diana Vreeland. Since Caroline turns heads everywhere she goes, we asked for her top 10 beauty secrets.
Rule #1: Protect Your Skin
"My beauty M.O. in 3 words is: Natural, dewy and effortless (and always protected with a broad-spectrum sunscreen)."
Rule #2: Have A Signature Scent
"It's so important to have a signature scent—it makes me feel sexy. My secret for perfume is to spray the back of my neck and under my hair. My two faves are Balmain's Ambre Gris for night and Diana Vreeland's Simply Divine for day."
Rule #3: Splurge On Facials
"I'm obsessed with the facials at Beautifully Mad in Los Angeles. They give me the most personalized, spiritual facials I've ever had."
Rule #4: Don't Be Afraid Of Bold Lipstick
"I've never worn a bold lip regularly, but right now I'm very into dramatic reds for evening—I especially like MAC's Lady Danger."
Rule #5: Avoid Nail Art
"French manicures with white tips pain me! The French wear no polish, which is way more chic."

Rule #6: Know Your Go-To Colors
"I always wear Essie's Not Just A Pretty Face on my toes. On my fingers, I switch between OPI's Big Apple Red and no polish at all."
Rule #7: Channel A Beauty Icon
"I like to channel the attitude of Cleopatra and the effortless glamour of Tilda Swinton."
Rule #8: Hydrate Your Skin
"To hydrate my skin I use Innovative Skincare's Pro-Heal Serum on my face and L'Occitane's almond oil on my body."
Rule #9: Find A Product That Works For You
"For volume, I swear by Big Sexy Hair's Volumizing Dry Shampoo—no other brand even comes close. I even use it on clean hair."
Rule #10: Never Leave Home Without Your Faves
"There are five things I always have in my bag: Nars lipstick in Fast Ride (which I use on my lips and sometimes rub under my eyes), Aquaphor (which solves everything), Essie's cuticle oil, RMS Beauty's Living Luminizer (on my cheekbones) and Glossier rosewater spray."
