The busy jet-setting model, designer, stylist and style editor-at-large for shares her beauty secrets!

Morning routine: I normally use Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Wipes followed by the Peach & Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub. For lotion I use Derma E Antioxidant face cream.

Overnight skin ritual: Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Organic Aloe Vera Formula Toner, Red Carpet Facial and 40 Carrots Retinol-Rich Carrot Acai Sleep Cream.

Who cuts/colors your hair: It depends on whether I’m on the East or West coast. Currently I’m in NYC so my friend Brett Kurli Elis does it. We decided to do a red rose root color with heavy pink highlights for more of the natural look. I’m loving it!

Hair habit: I actually have very curly hair, so I flat-iron select pieces to leave it with the beachy bedhead look. I love Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing & Texturizing Powder for my roots, Amadeus Spa’s T.E.A. Tea Essential Aromatherapy Serenity Leave-In Conditioner and Ojon Dry Recovery Intensive Hydrating Repair Mask—it’s a life-saver for color-treated hair.

Favorite eye look: I like natural bronzes and browns above and under the eye with a thick natural coal-colored mascara—I call it the bad girl natural eye.

Go-to lipstick: Tarte’s LipSurgence in Lucky—I wear it almost daily!

Nail color of the moment: I have a ruby orange with a lavender tip and rounded nail. I’m changing it this week to bubblegum pink with tangerine half moons.

Signature scent: Aveda Chakra body sprays, Italian rose oil or Coco Chanel Mademoiselle—it depends on the day and where I’m going. Example: Aveda Chakra sprays for hiking, running errands or yoga, Italian rose oil for casual dressy and Coco Chanel Mademoiselle for special occasions. Those three are on heavy rotation.

“Never without” product: Tarte’s under-eye concealer and Gifted Amazonian Clay Mascara—I could live with just those products if I had to!

Secret to staying young and beautiful: Drink lots of water, exercise, eat organic, face masks, yoga, happiness, confidence and some amazing concealer for those not-so-good days!
