Who's your beauty icon?

I can’t choose between Jane Birkin, Jerry Hall, or Linda Rodin.

Who are your 5 favorite people to follow on Instagram?

@violette_fr @discoverla @shrimptoncouture @nail_unistella @the_press_tour

What's the beauty essential you can’t live without?

Concealer. My dark circles/under-eye bags are the bane of my existence. Although I do have an eternal love for the original 1975-edition Chloé fragrance—it’s sweet and heady and just a little bit smoky.

What's your desert island album?

Honestly, it has to be Harry Styles’ self-titled album. It’s a combination of my two favorite things—music from the 70’s and 80’s and boy band nostalgia. Plus every song is simply amazing…I love it (and him). 

What's your favorite Byrdie.com story?

The first story I think of is How I Permanently Removed My Under-Eye Bags, because it is wonderful, and informative, and solely responsible for my first ever derma roller purchase. I also love Meet Paloma Elsesser: The New-School Beauty Icon We’ve Been Waiting For, because she is so cool. I’m still in awe of her photos, the makeup, and basically the entire thing.
