Beauty / IN THE BAG

Phoenix Anderson prefers the simple life

We first met her on the streets of her adopted hometown, New York City, and captured her in the afternoon light as our Face of August. Needless to say we’ve been wanting more ever since. Here model Phoenix Anderson reveals how she prefers to keep her beauty regimen simple and instead puts focus on the fun.

My morning beauty routine is …
Washing with CLn moisture balance facial cleanser, toning with Witch Hazel, using a drop of Avène A-Oxitive serum and their Clean-AC cream and spritzing my face with Avène Thermal Spring Water. I love Avène! I suggest it for anyone with very sensitive skin.

Then I put on Benefit Brow setter and Marc Jacobs mascara, and some Smith’s Rosebud salve. I don’t really like to wear much makeup, it’s also just nice to let my skin breathe between shoots.

For my hair I use Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and BreedLove Beauty Co Organic Hair & Scalp serum.

My night beauty routine is …
Pretty much the same!

My favourite products for body are …
I love Sabon’s soap bars and body butter.

Take your makeup off ASAP, don’t leave it on longer than necessary.

When it comes to beauty I always …
Keep it simple, less is more.
