Australian model Julia Nobis, who climbed the rooftops of Istanbul for W Magazine’s November issue, is a minimalist when it comes to her beauty routine. Here she reveals her morning makeup routine, favorite products, and more.
Your look in three words:
Relaxed, lazy, chill. Other people have used the term effortless, which is much nicer, though not quite as precise.
Step 1. Try to remember to put on moisturizer and lip balm before leaving the house. Step 2. Forget to do Step 1. Step 3. Realize that you're a genius and always have moisturizer and lip balm in bag. Step 4. Complete Step 1 at own leisure.
Never leave the house without:
See above. Also, always keep a few Band-Aids in your bag. Shoes can be brutal, as can the real world.
Beauty from the inside out:
Confidence is more beautiful any product.
Sukin Eye Serum at night, Bioderma Hydrabio Moisturiser, and when my skin gets really dry (like in the winter or during fashion week) I use Sukin Purely Ageless Botanical Hydration Booster. I buy my Sukin products in Australia.
You can make a very decent body scrub using nothing but equal parts sugar, preferably raw, and olive oil. I have done this in a hotel room using room service supplies. Worked as a treat, tasted awful though.
Not a remedy, but just a few drops of oil on the ends of your hair helps quite a bit.
I hate taking baths; 5-minute showers are my thing.
Fragrance of choice:
Bottega Veneta Knot.
Best advice from mom:
My mother is allergic to pretty much every cream ever created, so we only ever used Sorbolene growing up. That stuff is pure magic for sensitive skin.
