In the age of the multi-hyphenate, Emily Ratajkowski seems to be doing it all. Model, actress, designer and activist, she’s known just as much for her her red-carpet looks as she is for using her platform to stand up for issues she believes in. Another thing she can’t help being famed for is her pared-back approach to beauty; the star favours a minimal, natural look whatever the occasion.
We caught up with Emrata while she was in Paris with Kérastase, the renowned haircare brand she also acts as an ambassador for, to talk all about her beauty secrets. Read on to get the lowdown on her daily beauty routine, holy grail products and of course, how she keeps her hair looking so good. In related news, check out her wardrobe essentials too.

What does your daily beauty routine look like?
I wash my face every morning and every night. I use different kinds of product depending on how my skin is doing, so sometimes it’s just about taking off the make-up, sometimes it’s exfoliating. I get in the shower, I put shampoo, conditioner, I love the Extentioniste Kérastase, it’s probably my favourite. And then I do my makeup and then I’m out the door.
Do you have any beauty secrets you’re willing to share with us?
I love putting a little bit of lipstick on my nose and on my cheeks for blush and I draw freckles on with eyebrow pencil.
Since you’re always travelling, what are the beauty essentials that you always take with you on the go?
Yes, I would say I like Aquaphor which is very simple for lips; when I’m flying I put it everywhere. And I take an eyebrow pencil to keep them brushed up.
How do you keep your hair fresh and healthy?
I use the Kérastase Elixir because it’s not too heavy, which is a problem with a lot of oils with my kind of hair. It justs keep it really fresh and the ends looking really good.
