‘The City’ star Olivia Palermo has shared her top beauty and skincare tips. Her biggest beauty pet peeve is when people sleep with their makeup on, because she thinks it’s bad hygiene to leave it all on overnight. She says she isn’t particularly high maintenance when it comes to taking off her own, and simply uses Vaseline as a basic remover which she thinks works great:

“There’s no good excuse for sleeping in make-up – ever. It’s just good hygiene. It takes ten minutes to remove, and everyone has ten minutes. I’m not even high maintenance with it – I just smooth Vaseline over my face and remove it with a cotton pad. It’s really effective.”

Olivia does like to have facials, but only ones where she believes she will see some results after as she thinks some facials clog her pores. She also steers clear of facial scrubs:

“I only ever go for results-driven facials. I don’t have indulgent ones, because they just seem to clog up my pores. And I’ve never used a face scrub. I’ll only have one if I get a medical facial and the professional uses it on me. “

Olivia regularly takes part in different photo shoots, and she admits changing makeup looks so often can be very hard on her skin, so she prepares before a shoot by applying her own products to build a protective base. She also asks makeup artists to use products she has already so that her skin can stay clear and healthy:

“When you’re on different shoots all the time, your skin can be destroyed. Before any shoot, I put on my own face products, then the make-up artist will apply the foundation and colour. As a model, you need to stick to your own products, because it’s important for your skin not to get congested. I’m fortunate to work with amazing make-up artists, but I’m still specific about what they put on my face, so my skin doesn’t take a beating.”
