"At the end of the day I'm kind of a beauty minimalist, but there are a few staples I keep VERY close at hand. I love to keep new products that intrigue me nearby (like this ByTerry "tea" stain), a lash curler for days when I look tired, and what you don't see in this shot is my perfume collection—it's like a scent wardrobe and Tom Ford is in seriously heavy rotation!"
