What’s one beauty rule you think is BS?
I feel like “baking” your face with powder is kind of overrated. I think it’s just sort of adding product on your face that you don’t really need. I don’t like wearing a lot of product; I like keeping it very simple and clean. So, I’ve never been a huge fan of layering on a bunch of powder. Less is more sometimes. No, most of time!
Fill in the blank: “I love my hair…”
Healthy. I use a lot of Olaplex, which strengthens your hair in between highlighting sessions. I have to get my hair heat styled for work every day. But for my CoverGirl shoot, we’re showing my natural waves. It’s nice to bring out the diffuser and let my natural hair texture come out rather than blowing it dry and straightening it out.
You travel constantly. What city or country gives you the greatest beauty inspiration?
When I’m in L.A., I feel like I have the most creative freedom to go crazy with makeup and try bold looks. I think it’s a really golden place for people to be very exploratory with their makeup.
You’re stranded on a desert island. What are the three products you bring with you?
I would bring lip balm because I have to have lip balm with me literally everywhere I go. I use one by Hanalei. It’s made in Hawaii. I would also bring a moisturizer that has sunscreen in it. And probably a cheek stain that I could also use as a lip stain, like CoverGirl Clean Fresh Cream Blush. I love creamy products that you can use wherever.
What colors are you loving on your nails right now?
I actually don’t get my nails done very often. I rarely have polish on them; usually just nail strengthener. When I do paint my nails, they’re usually a very-nude pink. I think I would paint my nails more if I wasn’t on set so much and didn’t have to worry about continuity.
What’s your go-to getting ready music?
I really like Tame Impala. I listen to feel good and chill. I like to—how should I say this?—calmly jam out to music. That’s sort of the whole vibe of my life, calmly jamming out.
How much time do you spend getting ready?
I tend not to have a lot of patience when I’m getting ready. If I’m going to an event, I’ll probably start getting ready an hour before. But if I’m just going out for breakfast for the day, I can probably get ready in five minutes. I’m pretty quick.
