Titia is one of those girls that does not need a lot of make-up to look gorgeous. I got to know her while I was renting an office desk at The Collector, where she works as a executive fashion editor. She regularly pops in the office without wearing any make-up and still manages to somehow magically glow. Time to figure out her beauty ritual.
Your morning ritual?
After my shower I clean my face with milk, because it then feels like I have to use less day cream. First I apply Centella Recovery Skin-Salve from Kiehl’s and then REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream. During summer I always add something with high SPF. Now that I have my lash extensions, that is about it. Not having to put mascara on in the morning and taking it off at night is just festive! Other favorites are everything that I once bought in bulk from Dior and Carmex, which smells like hell but it is the best thing for dry lips.
Your last beauty purchase?
Sephora Express Nail Polish Remover, which is the best beauty invention ever! I used to use up to 300 cotton balls and still have stains left on my fingers, but this is my solution.
Make-up look in one word?
Natural, I do not use a lot. From day to night I add mascara and sometimes eyeliner and my signature lipstick, which is Ariane Inden 1022.
Tom Ford Black.
The ultimate product that still does not exist, would be…
Those lashes are already a true invention to me, however I would love something that makes depilating my eyebrows an easy task.
Anything you wish you would dare to try, but you never did?
Most of the time I just do it.
What about your hair?
Just like Anna I wash it once a week. Oh, and I get a haircut probably once a year! Sometimes I wish I had curls. But washing your hair once a week is probably also my biggest beauty tip. Your hair has to get used to it in the beginning, but will feel healthier than ever after.
Biggest beauty failure?
I once dyed my hair blonde, but it came out pretty yellowish. Also, the light in my bathroom is super bad and I used to just randomly smudge my foundation on my face and walk out the door without looking in a decent mirror first. Very regularly I found myself in the bathroom of a restaurant or café frightened by my reflection. Sometimes I can also tell by the look on my boyfriends face that I applied too much.
