Earlier this month, we caught up with the face of RXGenesys, Paulina Porizkova, at an exclusive preview at the New York EDITION. Here, the fashion icon shares her old-school secrets and current obsessions.
5-minute beauty routine: I put on my RXGenesys RxMoisturizer and RxIlluminator, SPF, and a little bit of cream blush.
If you had 10 more minutes, what would you do: I would use it in some hugely unproductive way like read. Reading is my favorite thing to do.
Off-label secret: At 50, I’m not so into using diaper cream on my face anymore, or butter for makeup removal. That’s in the old days. I use a No. 2 pencil yellow school pencil for my eyebrows. Way Bandy taught me that.
Earliest beauty memory: When I was very little, my mom had this super blonde fluffy hair and would wear pale pink lipstick and that whole ’60s thing. Much later on when I discovered who Marilyn Monroe was, I thought she looked a bit like her.
Biggest beauty blunder: Being alive in the ’80s.
What product do you just not get: I pretty much get everything. Done right, anything can look good. It’s really more of a question of what is applied where, to whom, at what time, and why.
Beauty pet peeve: Eyebrows! So many people go around with eyebrows looking like sperm, and foundation that ends on the face.
Beauty professional that you can’t live without: Shari Auth, my masseuse/acupuncturist who I work with a lot on my anxiety and migraines.
