Riley Montana Loves Lip Balm, Hates Working Out

The American model shares a page from her beauty notes.


One of the stunning cover stars of W’s November 2014 issue, Riley Montana was born beautiful. Here, how the 22-year-old Detroit native keeps it that way.

Your look: Super chill.

Daily routine: Check Instagram (sigh), brush my teeth, give my face a cold wash, then take a nice hot shower or bath.

Beauty from the inside out: Treating someone the way you want to be treated shows beauty.

Exercise regime: Eat, sleep, then eat again. Maybe walk to get the mail.

Beauty essentials: Moisturizer is a must, it keeps my skin looking fresh.

Skincare secret: Drink tons of water.

Day to night look: I just add a popping lip and a smoky eye, and I’m on the go.

Manicure or pedicure: Pedicure. Men don’t trust women with ugly feet.

Pilates or yoga: Neither, but if I have to work out, I’ll do yoga.

Best advice from the pros: Claim being a supermodel. Bring it to existence.

Necessary splurge: I’m not quite splurging yet, except on a great meal.

Drugstore favorite: Lip balm.

Beauty icons: Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss.
