It's the Christmas miracle you never knew you needed: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have finally blessed us with the knowledge of their favorite beauty products, courtesy of The Row's first in-store beauty section. Yes, it's as chic and * ahem * aspirational as you would expect it to be.
"There's something for everyone," Mary-Kate told us via email. "Make-up, shampoo, shaving cream, soap, bath oils, baby cleanser..." But more importantly, products so beautiful they double as interior design elements. Because when your baby cleanser comes from Santa Maria Novella, you better believe it's going to be almost too beautiful to use.
In keeping with The Row's trademark minimalism, there are only a few brands MK+A bless with their endorsement. Aforementioned Santa Maria Novella, plus Serge Lutens, Vilhelm Parfumerie, and Odin all make the cut as brands that "are just as thoughtful as the clothes," Ashley said. If there's one thing to learn here, it's that scent is paramount. And it makes sense, right? The Olsens are darlings of the no-makeup makeup movement. Just a little Serge Lutens Eye Kohl, maybe mascara, and a spritz or two of Vilhelm's Smoke Show through your hair. And presto! You're an Olsen twin. Merry Christmas indeed.
