(NEW YORK) Ready for a bevy of makeup tips, beauty tricks, and other pearls of wisdom from the industry’s top girls? We've got a gorgeous quartet of supes to spill their prettifying tricks. First up, a moment with Karlie Kloss, the reigning queen of cheek-y chic!
What products do you use?
I love Clarins Beauty Flash Balm. It is a lifesaver when I get off international or overnight flights. It immediately eliminates all signs of fatigue. And also Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer. It’s a two- in-one foundation and moisturizer and the less you have to wear on your face, the better especially in the summer when your makeup melts off the minute you step out into the summer heat! I also love Guerlain’s bronzer to get a the perfect bronzed goddess look without any glimmer or shimmer. The Armani blushes are beautiful too.
I love the La Roche-Posay sunscreen lotion because it doubles as a moisturizer and sunscreen.
I’m obsessed with SoulCycle! I also love to ride my bike outside on the West Side Highway now that the weather is so gorgeous!
In the summertime I love wearing scents that are fresh and clean like Gucci’s Flora Eau de Parfum and Marc Jacobs’ Lola.
How long do you stay at the beach?
There’s nothing better than spending all day at the beach, reading a good book or talking with friends, and not leaving until the sun goes down and your tan starts to set in.
Any advice for looking beautiful and healthy?
The important thing is physical exercise! A body in motion stays in motion. Find a sport or some type of physical activity that you really enjoy doing. If you’re able to work out while having fun, you are much more likely to stick to your routine. I love to work out or run with friends too because I’m competitive and they challenge me to work harder than if I were just by myself.
What kind of toothpaste do you use?
Crest 3D White.
And your go-to nail polish color?
I usually go for something simple and light like Essie Ballet Slippers on my fingers, and then maybe a more fun color on my toes, like Deborah Lippmann’s My Old Flame. It’s a gorgeous red that looks so chic in the summer peeping out of sandals or open-toe heels!
