My Beauty Routine

Pernille Teisbæk, Vashtie Kola and Tanesha Awasthi are international style stars and fashion influencers. We got them to let us in on their everyday beauty routines and latest revelations.

PERNILLE TEISBÆK, BLOGGER AND STYLIST

Pernille Teisbæk is one of Denmark’s most influential bloggers and a streetstyle star making appearances at fashion shows and events all over the world. This past summer she teamed up with H&M during Roskilde Festival. While hanging out at the warm and dusty festival site, we took time to ask her some question about the – at that time and place – distant subject of beauty.

GUIDE US THROUGH YOUR DAILY ROUTINE – STEP-BY-STEP!
“It takes me two minutes to get out the door in the morning so my makeup routine is very boring. I really love strong brows, so I use mascara on them and sometimes I have some mascara on my lashes. That’s it!”

HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN?'
“Once a month I do a facial, which is quite essential for me to maintain my skin glow and keep it clean. The rest of the month I use a lot of moisturiser because my skin dries out quickly, and I wear a lot of sunscreen. Actually I wear it all year round – because you never know when you might get burned.”

“Before going to sleep, I clean my face and give myself a facial massage to relax all the mimic lines. I massage my forehead, chins and cheekbones. Every other day I sleep with a moisturising mask and every third day I use a scrub.”


Less is more! Spend more time making your skin look glowing instead of covering it up with makeup.

WHAT ARE YOUR LATEST BEAUTY REVELATIONS?
“I really love a glowing skin! I think it’s beautiful when it looks healthy. The facial cream I use comes from Rodial and has so much good stuff in it that brings out the glow.” 

WHAT ARE YOUR TOP TIPS TO GET YOUR LOOK?
“Less is more! Spend more time making your skin look glowing instead of covering it up with makeup. Also, sleep a lot, drink a lot of water and give yourself a facial massage every other day to bring circulation to the skin.”

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A QUICK HAIR-FIX?
“If I wake up and have to run out the door when my hair is still wet I either put it in a knot or a braid. When it’s dry I take it out and have some nice waves in it.”

“I exfoliate using Biologique Recherché, followed by a Luzern serum. Then I use Luzern moisturiser followed by raw coconut oil.”

HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN?
“I believe in beauty from the inside out, so my diet is definitely important in keeping my skin healthy. My diet is mainly vegan and super green. As far as products go, I also only use things that are healthy and chemical-free. I usually go to a safe cosmetics database to check my products for a full review of ingredients. Other than that, I try to get sleep and drink lots of water.”

TANESHA AWASTHI, BLOGGER

Tanesha Awasthi is the blogger behind Girl With Curves. This past spring, we dubbed her blog number one in our list of fashion blogs to follow because she shows that, no matter your size, you can still pull off the latest trends and trend items. At Girl With Curves, Tanesha mixes inspiring outfits with beauty tips and tutorials. 

GUIDE US THROUGH YOUR DAILY ROUTINE – STEP-BY-STEP!
“In the morning, I cleanse with an anti-ageing gel cleanser, tone with alcohol-free toner, followed by brightening eye cream, moisturiser with SPF 15, and UVA/UVB SPF 45 sunscreen before makeup. Before going to bed I remove my makeup with a makeup remover wipe, followed by cleansing, toning and night cream.”

HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN?
“I'm a licensed esthetician, so I love diving deep into ingredients! I'm all about SPF and anti-ageing.  The key to keeping skin looking young and fresh is protecting your skin from the sun and using the proper SPF year-round.”

WHAT ARE YOUR LATEST BEAUTY REVELATIONS?
“I've always been a water drinker, but after having my son, I don't crave liquids the way I used to, so my water intake has lessened drastically and I can tell a difference in my skin. Before this, I never realised how important water was for keeping skin healthy and hydrated.”


I'm all about SPF and anti-ageing.

DO YOU USE ANY UNUSUAL BEAUTY PRODUCTS?
“I swear by eyebrow enhancement serums.  My eyebrows are naturally very sparse, so I need all the help I can get!”

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A QUICK HAIR-FIX?
“My hair is curly and naturally on the lighter side of golden brown/auburn, so it requires lots of moisture and up-keep. Whenever my hair is frizzy and the colour goes dull, I see my stylist for a deep condition and fresh, deep brown colour.”

IF YOU HAVE FIVE MINUTES TO GET READY, WHAT DO YOU DO?
“Cleanse, tone, moisturise, fill in my brows, blush and mascara.”
