We caught up with the New York based designer to chat ALL things beauty, and of course, her new fall collection. See below for more...
What was your favorite piece(s) in this collection?
It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I really love our Brutus jackets. We used them for our finale at the show - they’re these really cool over-sized moto jackets for Fall.
We know you worked with Maybelline for beauty this year but who was the mastermind behind the beauty for the show?
We usually collaborate on the look together and then decide. Really, it’s very similar to my day to day look. I love clean skin, mascara, nude lips, but nothing too perfect. There’s always a little rock n ’roll - that’s the quintessential Minkoff girl look.
What's your personal skincare routine like?
I make sure to wash my face no matter what, but otherwise it’s pretty easy. I’ll moisturize heavily in the evening and in the last few years I’ve been a lot better about wearing SPF during the day. When I’m not in the sun I love Shani Darden’s Retinol Reform.
What 3 beauty/wellness products can you NOT leave home without?
Honest hand sanitizer, chapstick and hand lotion.
With traveling all the time what are some of your favorite travel-friendly beauty products?
When I get on the plane the first thing I do is take off my makeup with wipes. Then I’ll use some oils that will really nurture my skin since the air is so dehydrating and use a good eye cream.
What's the best beauty advice you've ever heard?
I can’t tell you how much I wish that I started sooner.
Are you a matte or gloss kinda girl?
I would say kind of an in between. Nothing with sparkle in it, but something really moisturizing with a natural color.
What do you love most about collaborating and working with Neiman Marcus?
It’s been an incredible relationship and collaborating with them over the years. It has been really special.
What do you most look forward to when visiting the BIG D?
Indulging in food I never get to eat in New York! It’s pretty dangerous.
