Less than a decade ago, Julia Haart had to stash fashion magazines in her underwear drawer. But today, having left her ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, the designer, chief executive officer of Elite World Group, and star of Netflix’s My Unorthodox Life has nothing to hide.
“I’m 50 years old. I’ve got wrinkles,” says Haart. “But when I put on Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Primer, no makeup sinks into my lines,” she recounts. Her makeup routine is kept simple with staples she can rely on. “Giorgio Armani Crema Nuda Tinted Cream is so [light] it’s like I don’t have anything on. I’m not very good at brows, but Dior Diorshow Brow Styler has an applicator that’s stupid-proof,” she says. (We also love this Dior brow pencil for beginners, who are just starting to dabble with filled-in brows.)
“I literally douse my body in La Mer,” Haart states, continuing to explain why she rotates between two creams. “I use the Moisturizing Cream in the winter when my skin is much drier and Soft Cream in the summer,” she says.
Continuing to explain why she rotates between two creams, Haart shares the cleanser she uses, no matter the season. “Neostrata Exfoliating Wash gently exfoliates my sensitive skin without causing irritation,” Haart states. “Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads don’t give you that orange, self-tanner-y look; I use one every night.”
“I’m an insomniac,” Haart reveals. “Dr. Brandt’s No More Baggage Eye-Depuffing Gel sucks out all the puffy moisture when I wake up,” she says. “I even use it on my knees when I’m not wearing stockings.” And what skin-care routine would be complete without some cooling globes? “Georgia Louise Cryo Facial Freeze Tools also help depuff,” Haart adds.
As is the case with many of us, the Dyson Airwrap has changed Julia Haart’s life. “I have the most perfect Farrah Fawcett-inspired bangs in less than 30 seconds,” she says. Using air pressure, Dyson’s barrel attachment wraps hair around the device, creating a bouncy loop.
