While she’s better known for her chic style (as showcased on her style blog Miss Jones, for which her husband moonlights as photographer), Kim Jones’ beauty game is totally on-point.
While her signature look is red lipstick and winged eyes, she has many tips to dish out, such as how to really hide dark circles, the drugstore find that masks fly-aways, which makeup product really covers a zit, etc.
Here are a few of her favorite products:
“Honestly, I just really love the versatility of Lucas Papaw—it’s actually an ointment for wounds, so it’s a one-stop kind of product for me. I’ll use it on reef cuts or scrapes or I’ll use it under my lipstick. It’s the only lip balm that completely eliminates my dry lips under lipstick. I hoard tubes of it when I visit abroad.
“Aesop is a great brand for hand cream, it’s something I carry around in my handbag daily and the scents are so luxurious. I also use Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm.”
“Absolutely, the entire Vitress line is full of great products. I am a brand ambassador, but I just genuinely love the product. The travel-size Hair Repair Cuticle Coat is my favorite–I tend to get those annoying frizzy fly-aways, but a couple of drops before I go into a meeting works wonders and it’s just so affordable. Their fragrances are amazing, too.”
“I love a good contouring and highlighting, so I’ll use a darker shade of MAC Studio Fix Powder around my hairline, on my temples and under my cheeks. It blends in well and liquid foundation is so easy to use.
“MAC lipsticks are the best for me. They’re honestly my favorite beauty product. MAC’s Matte and Satin collections are my favorites. Strong, vibrant colors work best for me, my favorites being Rebel, Diva, Cyber and Lady Danger. I’ve been using those shades for years and love them so much I’ll plan my outfit around my shade for that day.”
“Orly Kiss the Bride is the ultimate nude pink for daily wear. Other than that, my nail polish box looked like a pastel rainbow exploded in it. I have so many pastel shades in blues, mints, lavenders and pinks.”
“I’m loyal to my perfume scents. Once I find one, I tend to stick to it. I rotate between Miss Dior Cherie and Bulgari Rose Essentielle, which, unfortunately, has been discontinued and has led to my scouring airports for one of the last few remaining bottles.
“Candles are everywhere in our house, and we switch them around to breathe life into our spaces. I alternate between Diptyque Baies, Astier De Villatte Broadway and Voluspa Crane Flower.”
