It’s unmistakable that Brooke Shields is a timeless beauty icon. After vocalising her ‘IDGAF’ attitude on present-day beauty standards, however, her journey into reclaiming this narrative is grounded in celebrating it on her own terms.
In a recent interview with Allure, the actress gave insight into her current routine, revealing that, as she’s gotten older, she is “starting to enjoy skin care and makeup more” as both a ritual and form of self-care.
It’s nice to come back into it at this stage of life,” she reflected.
In her day-to-day life, Shields adopts a refreshingly minimalist approach to makeup. Preferring not to “put a whole face on” when off-duty, she focuses on using a few quality products and, coincidentally, they all sit within the ‘clean beauty’ category.
What is clean beauty?
Clean beauty has become a buzzword in the world of cosmetics. It refers to skin care and makeup products that are created without any proven or suspected toxic ingredients. Clean beauty products are typically free from parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances, among other potentially harmful chemicals.
Brooke Shields’ makeup routine
When it comes to her beauty routine, Brooke likes to keep it minimal. She’s a fan of the Jones Road The Face Pencil ($81.42 USD at Amazon) for a quick fix on dark spots and under-eye areas.
She’s also a fan of the Vapour Beauty Aura Multi-Stick ($55at Sephora) on her lips, cheeks and eyes. We love a multi-tasker!
To finish off her three-product routine, mascara is a non-negotiable. In fact, it’s her “main thing”.
To achieve her signature fluttery lash look, she uses the Thrive Causemetics’ Liquid Lash Volumizer Mascara ($25 USD at Thrive Causemetics).
It’s clear that Brooke’s routine focuses on minimal products with maximum impact, aligning with a growing desire for uncomplicated, mindful beauty practices.
