Ansley Gulielmi is quickly taking the fashion world by storm. This season, the 17-year-old model just made her debut, walking for Balenciaga, Hérmes, Rochas, and more, and she modeled for fashion photographers Mert & Marcus in W‘s March issue. Even though the Chicago native is new to the fashion scene, she already has a beauty routine worth stealing. From mud masks to hot yoga and an obsession with Pat McGrath‘s Skin Fetish highlighter, Gulielmi knows the secret to a flawless glow. Here, she reveals her best beauty advice, favorite makeup products and more.

Your look in three words:

Calm, cool, collected.

Medicine cabinet snapshot:

KPS Essentials Renu face cream, Kate Somerville ExfoliKate, Shu Uemura Tsuya Lotion II, and Lano Lips balm.

A good hair day starts with:

Kérastase’s Bain Volumifique shampoo and Masque Magistral (when hair feels dry) and Ouai Wave Spray for a bit of texture.

Makeup miracles:

Chanel Éclat Lumière Highlighter face pen, Boy Brow by Glossier, and YSL Glossy Lip Stain in Rebel Nudes.

Nails must be:

I like basic shades. Nothing bright or flashy. Nude nails = good nails. I like the Naked Manicure shades by Zoya.

Sheet mask or mud mask:

Mud masks. I’m currently loving the Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask by Botanics.

Bronze or blush:

Neither, really. If I had to pick between the two, I’d say blush (a very subtle one, just enough to give a bit of warmth to my face) like Dior’s Rosy Glow Awakening Blush.

Beauty from the inside out:

High intake of vegetables and water – so essential!

Exercise obsession:

I enjoy hot yoga and running. I’ve been looking to check out Y7 yoga…I hear you sweat a lot and it’s fun.

Drink of choice:

Definitely a tie between water and Kombucha.

Product that you borrow from the boys:

Men’s deodorant.

Product that you picked up from the pros:

A little highlighter goes a long way. I love to use Pat McGrath Skin Fetish 003, works magic!

A woman should smell like:

Chloé’s Fleur de Parfum.

Appointment you’d love to nab:

Probably an appointment at Aire Ancient Baths New York.

Spa-cation at:

In a cabin in Alaska. Alone and cozy.

In-tub must-read:

Anything by Paulo Coelho.

Best advice from mom:

Think the things that you want to happen. Focus your energy on the good, not the bad.

Definite doppelgänger:

Daria Werbowy.

Anything else:

Stay true, be you.
