Tell yourself you’re cute with Andreja Pejic

Stretch to Donna Summers and blend your smoothie to Kylie Minogue – the newest face of Kérastase model Andreja Pejic talks us through her beauty essentials and the soundtrack to go with it.

My morning beauty routine is …
Wake up, meditate to Concentration Maximum on Spotify, stretch to Donna Summer, make my matcha and spirulina smoothie to Kylie Minogue. Then I cleanse my face with iS Clinical, [the] Youth Eye Complex is a serum by them I’m currently obsessed with but I apply it all over my face. On top of that, Clinique’s Broad Spectrum SPF50 sunscreen. After putting a look on I tell myself “you’re cute” in the mirror and I’m out.

My night beauty routine is …
At night time it’s all about a non caffeinated herbal tea. Tea I feel like is very important for the skin. I watch a lot of Golden Age of Hollywood films to inspire me to be more beautiful. Paula’s Choice Intensive Recovery cream or the Drunk Elephant Polypepetide cream. I look for ingredients like Retinol, VitaminC, Niacinamide. In the winter I’ll exfoliate with AHA but not in the summer.
