“My beauty philosophy is to emphasize your natural features with a sun-kissed look. I use Jouer luminizing moisture tint, Goop revitalizing day moisturizer and Sonya Dakar Daily Body Sheild. I also love Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow.”

“During the summer, get a haircut every four to six weeks to maintain a stylish, clean and easy-to-manage appearance. Barbers are good for a quick trim but try a high-end salon for a new look.”

“Spring makes me so excited to wear fun prints, a bold lip and of course, flowers in my hair! I can’t live without my FLOWER Beauty Velvet Lip Chubby in ‘Red-dy to Bloom.’ I have fair skin, so I pile on SkinCeuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense.”

“My tip for men this spring is not to over-groom. Let’s not wax mustaches, treat beards like topiary, or make little hair buns. Be cool. Be real. Be a man.”

“I never want people to ‘see’ my makeup. I want to look natural. Dewy skin looks great on everyone. I love Weleda Skin Food, it is very nourishing and leaves the skin with a beautiful, youthful glow. Makeup artist Romy Soleimani turned me onto it years ago.”
