I was recently interviewed by India-Jewel Jackson and Elizabeth Griffin for an article titled “Getting a Manicure with Supermodel Jessica Gomes” in Marie Claire where I shared some of my secrets about make up, beauty and my daily routine. I like to be comfortable—my daily uniform consists of a white tee, jeans, heels and a leather jacket or a tailored blazer. I also love spending time outdoors, and I try to stick to an organic paleolithic diet. I enjoy cold-pressed green juices in the morning and I rely on Pilates reformer classes to stay toned and in shape. My beauty philosophy is the same; keep it simple and not too complicated.
My go-to makeup look in my off time is just lip-gloss and mascara (both of which I hoard—I have to learn to let go!), but when it comes to attending official events, it’s either eyes or lips—never both. I’m almost always all about glowy skin, a nude lip, and an open, smoky eye with lots of lashes. (I’ll usually ask my makeup artist for the “J. Lo” and she knows exactly what that means.)
As for my skin, well I get that from my mom as well. Her beauty regimen has always been very simple:
1) Hydrate every single inch of your body immediately after bathing, and
2) Wash your face before you go to bed, and again as soon as you wake up.
To this day, I faithfully cleanse every morning and night whenever I’m working (i.e. wearing a ton of makeup). I use SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser and SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. The former leaves my face feeling squeaky clean, while the latter soaks into my skin really nicely so it always feels really soft and hydrated. With moisturizing, my skin type falls on the drier side, so I’ll use something light with SPF during the day, and at night I slather on a nourishing cream from Amore Pacific.
When I’m at home and off-duty (or paddle boarding on a beach in Byron Bay for the holidays), sometimes I skip the whole cleansing-and-moisturizing step altogether and just mist my face with a hydrating mineral water as soon as I wake up. I like to switch it up a bit since I’m usually hanging by the beach and not wearing makeup. I tend to use brands like Embryolisse, Bioderma, Nuxe and Avene, which I always purchase at French pharmacies in Paris.
