Rule #2: Have A Nighttime Regimen

“At night, Kate Somerville exfoliator followed by Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery facial oil always makes my skin feel clean and look luminous.”

Rule #3: Vamp Up Red Lipstick

“When it comes to red lipstick I tend to gravitate toward deeper reds or plum tones. I like the consistency of Armani and Chanel the best.”

Rule #4: Skip Bright-Color Liner

“I’ve never really been into colored eyeliners or mascara but I’m definitely over it now – unless maybe for editorials, but not for real life.”

Rule #5: Always Add Texture

“To get messy waves I let my hair air dry with a little bit of pomade finger-combed through the bottom half of my hair. When it’s completely dry I use a curling iron and loosely curl thick sections of my hair, then add more pomade or smoothing serum break up and texturize the waves.”

Rule #6: Create A Flawless Base

“My beauty hero kit includes Armani foundation, Clinique under eye concealer and a duo with Nars Laguna bronzer and Orgasm blush. Glowy skin is the most important part of a makeup look.”

Rule #7: Think Like A French Girl

“My beauty icon has to be Marion Cotillard. She always looks chic and has that very effortless, natural, and timeless beauty that I think everyone strives for.”

Rule #8: Pare Down For A Night Out

“If I’m going out I’ll bring rosebud lip salve, lipstick if I’m wearing a lip and sometimes concealer. I don’t tend to carry around many beauty products with me at night for touch-ups.”

Rule #9: Don't Splurge On Mascara

“I like to splurge on facials and most of my skin products. I’m over buying expensive mascara because I never love the results and I prefer to buy new mascara more often because they dry out quickly and don’t look as nice.”

Rule #10: Add Edge With A Moody Mani

“I often go for plain black nail polish when I’m getting a manicure, or I really like a metallic color, like the green-gold from our collab with RGB.”
