'I love wearing neutral makeup: a little bit of Clinique High Impact Mascara, some blush, and then a colorful lip. I actually just bought a purple lip stain at Sephora—a Chubby Stick from Clinique in Voluptuous Violet. I love it—it’s moisturizing but it’s colorful; it’s perfect. I’d been looking for a really dark wine color, because I saw it in Teen Vogue and I absolutely fell in love with the look. But it’s so hard to find that shade, and when you’re on the street, you kind of have to tone it down a bit… But I wasn’t settling for this one! [Laughs] I tried it on thinking it would go on darker, but it’s actually almost a ‘natural’ purple. It’s wearable purple.

Makeup-wise, I avoid anything heavy because I have good skin in general, and I don’t like feeling weighed down. If I do use makeup, it’s all very light, natural-feeling things. One thing I always, always do is darken my eyebrows—I absolutely love how that looks on someone. I use a Sephora Brow Pencil that’s just a bit darker than my normal eyebrow color.

I don’t have any real problems with my skin, but I do use Lush Aqua Marina face wash with seaweed and aloe vera every day. I love Lush—it’s all natural, no-preservatives stuff. And I have a cream I bought in Korea this summer that uses snail goo—the goo that comes off of snails. It’s so weird, but it was so popular over there that I had to try it. Actually, I was walking down the street and saw this huge poster of models with snails and I was like, ‘What is this advertising???’ Of course I couldn’t read the writing, but I looked closely and it seemed like it was for a Sseal cream, so I went into a store and tried a sample. It was sooo nice, and I had to bring some home. My mom and I both love it. It goes on really smooth and feels rich, it has beautiful packaging, and it smells nice. It’s 60% nail slime—they call it ‘ escargot cream.’ It’s super popular in Korea, and I think it’s catching on here.

I’m also obsessed with Bio-Oil, this really hydrating light-pink oil—but it doesn’t feel oily. It’s light and really soaks into your skin. I think it’s a combination of essential oils, like vitamin E, and it only costs, like, 10 dollars for a bottle. You can get it at the Vitamin Shoppe or a health-food store. I use it to get rid of redness, dark circles—you can use it on scars, too…cuticles, anything.”
