Power suits and power poses are great, but let’s not forget beauty power moves. In honor of our July theme we asked the founders behind Rent the Runway, Design Sponge, and other star brands to share the beauty tricks they use to kick their confidence into high gear.
"Finding a new way to do or repurpose something I already own. Lip gloss can double as blush, or a scarf can function as a top. Getting creative lets me express myself and keep to a slim budget while mixing up my everyday looks."
“Getting ready on the go! I’ve become a professional at doing my eyeliner and mascara in a moving NYC taxi or subway. In general, I am amazed at how awake a dash of mascara can make you feel.”
“Having skin that's clear enough to be confident and beautiful on its own—no makeup needed. I achieve that by exfoliating twice a week with Sonia Dakar's exfoliating scrub and once a week with a dab of Exfolikate. I follow up with Sonia Dakar's maintenance hydrating lotion mixed with a drop of Rodin face oil. The combination smells amazing and makes my skin look dewy but not oily.”
“I don't like to wear a lot of makeup, so I keep my everyday beauty routine super minimal, especially in the summer. A bright pink creme blush and black mascara make me look fresh without looking too done up.”
"Sleeping with my Resurfacing Mask on my face. It smooths and detoxes the skin, and when I wake up, my skin is super soft and has an amazing glow. I love to do it the day before an event or big meeting. It's a way to guarantee that my skin looks great throughout the day."
