Meet Anna Nooshin, my traveling partner during all Fashion Weeks abroad, the brains (co-founder) behind NSMBL and above all my gorgeous friend who puts her left shoe on her right foot and her right on her left foot every now and then. Having traveled together for three seasons now taught me Anna is not only a huge Chanel addict – this is not a Chanel ad -, she also has some good beauty secrets up her sleeve, time for some beauty talk.
Your morning ritual?
After my morning shower, I start of with Eau Efficace from Sisley, which I think is meant to be used as make-up, but I use it as a tonic. Then some day cream, always random, but I am currently using Aquamilk from Lancaster. My make-up routine starts with BB Cream from Green Tea Nude, even though I like the one from Origins a bit better. Depending on if I have events to attend or not, I use Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation. I always use Chanel Vitalumière Éclat (in Beige Ambré – Desert) and Etos concealer (number 1). For the eyes, I use my Chanel eyelash curler and Sisley So Intense in Deep Black, which is the best mascara ever. 99 percent of the days I create a winged eyeliner, with the first random pencil I can find. My blush is a combination of three, Nars Orgasm, MAC Copper Tone and Chanel highlighter. I finish off with some lip balm.
Your last beauty purchase?
Chanel Démaquillant Yeux Intense (eye make-up remover), I always remove my make-up and clean my face before I go to bed.
Best product ever made?
Etos Brightening Concealer*, if I could only use one product for the rest of my life, it would be this. I have literally tried everything for my dark circles and this is the best one so far. Other favorites are Origins BB Cream, Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector and highlighter from Chanel. I like a good J.Lo glow, no shame in my game honey.
Chanel Coco Noir, anything Chanel really.
The ultimate product that still does not exist, would be…
A product that completely covers dark circles, the Etos one is good, but I would kill for something that covers everything.
Anything you wish you would dare to try, but you never did?
Yes, I would love to get an icy blonde shaved/pixie cut! And I wish ‘nude’ would work on me, I love a nude lip on others, but it just does not look good on me.
Tell me about your hair, what do you use to tame those beautiful locks?
Nothing, I would advice anyone to wash their hair just once a week. I never use any products, nor do I use my blowdryer, straightener or curling iron. No dry shampoo either! This might sound gross to others, but it works for me.
Biggest beauty failure?
I used to have super thin eyebrows and tried blue mascara, not good. Also, I am not a huge fan of a tanned look. I once got a huge tan on vacation and trust me when I say it looked absolutely horrible on me.
Never overdo it, stick to what you know and keep it natural. Never follow trends!
