Rule #1: Love Thy Moisturizer

"Always moisturize! Pack it on. It’s the key to healthy, happy skin. I swear by our Glossier Priming Moisturizer; it’s buildable so it’s great for all skin types. It’s like a heavyweight moisturizer disguised as a lightweight one."

Rule #2: Invest In Candles

"I splurge on candles. I’m addicted to Diptyque Tilleul."

Rule #3: Real Tattoos > Fake Tattoos

"Which beauty trend would I like to see go away? Those gold temporary tattoo jewelry things. Just get a real tattoo. Black, not gold."

Rule #4: You're Never Too Old To Learn

"I don’t know how to do my hair. Makeup, yes, but hair—I’m just learning now, at age 29."

Rule #5: Embrace Community

"The biggest lesson I've learned from the process of launching Into the Gloss and now Glossier is that women learn the most about products from each other. That’s why we have always been so keen on building a community, and it’s incredible what we learn from them every day. If you search #glossier on Instagram, it’s so inspiring to see how Glossier now fits into their beauty routines."
