If you were a teen or in your early twenties between 2006 and 2010, you were probably aware of the pop culture phenomenon called The Hills. A spinoff of the MTV reality show series Laguna Beach: The Real O.C., The Hills followed cast member Lauren Conrad as she embarked on her professional journey as a “real adult” in Los Angeles. Friendships were forged. Trust was broken. Combat boots were worn to the beach. Some of the most iconic moments in television history can be accredited to The Hills—from LC’s solemn face as she tells Heidi, “I wanna forgive you, and I wanna forget you,” to Lisa Love telling LC she’ll “always be the girl that said no to Paris.” Regardless of your thoughts on reality television, The Hills left an unmistakable mark on our cultural zeitgeist for years to come—if only because we learned to never, ever say no to Paris.
Thus, the Internet went abuzz recently over news of a reboot—aptly named The Hills: New Beginnings—that promised to feature members of the old cast (hi, crystal-clad Heidi and Spencer!), along with some fresh new faces. One such new face is Kaitlynn Carter, who isn’t really a new face at all if you’ve been following the fashion crowd in LA. With over 600K followers and counting on the ‘gram, the sunny-haired New Hampshire native is the co-founder of the influencer-fueled shopping platform, Foray, and also happens to be a fellow beauty buff. Knowing evidence of a dedicated skincare regimen when we see one, we asked Carter to share her current favorite beauty favorites—from the one place in LA she trusts to get a facial to the product her O.G. Hills-alum husband, Brody Jenner, always steals.
Ahead, get to know the secrets to Kaitlynn Carter’s Cali-girl waves and glowing skin.
