Alexa Chung has been spilling the secrets behind her much-coveted beauty regime (yay!). But unfortunately for us, it’s depressingly simple (damn). Talking to The Telegraph about her daily grooming habits, the 29-year-old Queen of Cool described her effortless look as “super low maintenance”, before offering a breakdown of her polished preening routine.
Here’s what else the new face of L’Oréal Hair said:
The Hair: “If I’m doing my hair myself, I just wash it and let it naturally dry. I’m actually quite good at doing hair; if I wear it up I usually do it myself. I love a dry shampoo and L’Oréal Professionnel Fresh Dust is good for a quick fix if I’m going out straight after filming my music show.”
The Make-Up: “For my make-up, I use Laura Mercier Tinted moisturiser, as it’s really lightweight and gives a lovely dewy finish to my skin. I love YSL lipsticks and have loads of them. I tend to keep buying the same shades without realising I already have them. I prefer using cream based products on my skin. I love having that summery dewy skin – I like using cream blushers as well. I always do my signature cat eye flick and use Eyeko for both liner and mascara.”
The Skin: “I moisturise religiously as my skin can get really dry – especially when I’m travelling so much. Kiehl’s and Decleor do lovely moisturisers – I really like the Hydra Floral by Decleor one.”
The Nails: “Nails-wise I like Essie polishes – especially Lilacism for the summer.”
The Perfume: “I use Le Labo fragrances – I especially like Rose 31.”
OK, so if we follow Chung’s beauty bible down to the T, will we eventually look as good as her? Worth a try…
