Warning: reading on may cause spending of excessive funds on really good beauty products.
Welcome to Vanity Affairs—a series where we document the beauty routines of notable people.
There are some people who have an I-can’t-put-my-finger-on-it kind of glow—a certain je ne sais quoi, if you will. You know the ones—their hair falls just right, their skin is dewy but never shiny, and they seem to exude confidence.
In the interest of public service, we’ve set about tracking down these actors, influencers, models, founders, entrepreneurs, musicians, spokespeople (and more!!) to find out their secrets. Have you got your pen and paper ready?
Today, we’re raiding the beauty cupboard of fashion influencer Rozalia Russian.
With more than 260K followers on Instagram, Russian is known for her impeccable outfits, stylish home and eye for beauty. Now that she has been named a friend of L’Oréal Paris, we felt it was the perfect opportunity to quiz Russian on her own beauty routine!
Here, she shares every single product she uses in her daily beauty regimen.
“There is nothing I love more than spending some time at the end of each day and doing an in depth nighttime skincare routine as the mornings are always so rushed. I’ll always start off with cleansing my makeup off, followed by a scrub and a mask. I will then pop on a LED mask for 10-20 minutes and finish off with some of my favourite serums and moisturisers that gives me ultimate hydration while I sleep. The new L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Retinol and Niacinamide Pressed Night Cream has been my new go to and favourite as it leaves my skin feeling brighter and firmer. The new packaging also comes with a press pump with gives me the perfect amount of product every time.”
“Every morning I start the day by always having a cup of coffee in bed and usually whilst I’m doing that, I also love to apply a face mask to get my skin prepped for the day. I will then move onto my morning skincare routine; I personally wake up and find my eyes quite puffy so one of my go to products is the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Eye Filler Serum which helps to de-puff my eyes whilst also targeting the fine lines.”
“For me body care is not just about the outside but taking care from within is just as important. As cliche as it sounds things like drinking plenty of water and eating healthy balanced meals are super important to help your body feel its best. I also love to take vitamins from JSHealth that help me from within. I also take care of my body by making sure that I exercise regularly and also treat myself to a sauna whenever I have a chance.”
“My favourite everyday fragrance is Eau Capitale from Diptyque, I’ve always loved this one as it’s more of a masculine scent. I do not like anything too sweet or too common and whenever I wear this fragrance, I get stopped in the street.”
“My everyday makeup routine is very quick and simple. I really focus a lot on my skin health which I then find helps me wear less makeup and focus more on my skin. In terms of different products, I like to use one product in multiple ways to speed up my routine. For example, I will use the L’Oréal Paris Back to Bronze Bronzer not only as a bronzer on my face, but also as an eyeshadow. This is the same trick with the lipstick, I will dap some on my cheek, instead of a blush.”
“The same as my makeup, I am very minimal when it comes to my hair. I find that the most important thing is to start off with a good base, so that means investing in a good shampoo and conditioner. Personally, I love Kevin Murphy, and Eleven Haircare products. I have also just recently started using Kerastase hair oil which leaves my hair super silky. In regards to styling, the one product I cannot live without is my Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and Dyson Airwrap.”
