“My approach to beauty is pretty simple: I’m obsessed with skin care and less with makeup. I have really dry skin. I have this amazing blue cream, which is called Collagen Cream by Dr. Spiller. My dermatologist is in Australia, and I always fly back there to see her. She’s got the Clear Skin Clinic, and any of the girls in there are amazing. It’s in Double Bay, Sydney. A lot of the girls get recommended to it by a friend, and then I found out that everyone in fashion in Sydney goes there. It’s this really long waiting list to get in, but she’s amazing, and it’s really very low-key and cool. So every time I go there, I buy six jars of this Dr. Spiller cream—it’s from Germany, but I can’t find it anywhere else. You can buy it online if you live in America. So I lather that on my face, and I always use a lot of Kiehl’s Creme de Corps all over my body, every day. And I wear sunscreen every single day as well, even in the winter, because so many people I know have dealt with skin cancer, and I’ve got fair skin. I’m never going tanning—I think it makes you look old. I’m the weirdo who goes to the beach but sits under the umbrella with the towels wrapped around me. I like Dermalogica cleansers, and I always have Evian spray. So it’s literally three layers of products: sunscreen, moisturizer, and then Clarins Beauty Flash Balm. It’s like a prepper, so it makes your skin a little bit plumper and softer, and so it shines a bit. I’m really about dewy skin—I would never wear powder. It’s all about dewy. So sometimes I get Lucas Papaw ointment and stick it on my brow bone because it just soaks in and then leaves a slight little shimmer.

Armani makeup I’m obsessed with, I can’t live without it: Face Fabric, and bronzer. And then YSL Touche Éclat—can’t live without it. I put it on my eyes, around my nose, a little on my lips—any kind of highlight area. I’m really into very minimal makeup, but contouring. I learned that from working with amazing makeup artists, from years of watching how they do it. I would always watch how they would change my face. So they would always do contouring underneath your cheeks, and then highlight. For me, that’s all makeup is: just contouring your face, and less is more, so it always looks like you’re wearing nothing. I like wearing almost nothing, but just a lot of that contour, a little bit of NARS for that shimmer—the stick in South Beach. But my favorite go to is Tom Ford True Coral lipstick. It’s the perfect pop of color—I have one in every bag. It’s totally perfect for me, like he made it for me. You can look shit and then put that on and everyone’s like, ‘Wow, you look good.’ This year I really don’t care about mascara. I used to use Maybelline Great Lash because every makeup artist would use it…the way I find beauty products is to look at what makeup artists would use. My eyelashes are normally clear and white, so I don’t wear any mascara. When I was a model, Pat McGrath said to me, ‘Never ever pluck your eyebrows and never pencil them in.’ So I can always tell when a makeup artist is really good—if she says, ‘Oh, I don’t want to pencil your eyebrows in because they’re amazing.’ I never touch my eyebrows. I like the idea that it’s quite weird to have no eyebrows. For me it’s all about a lip, less about an eye. If I wear eyeliner, I just look like I’m on the town.”
