“Hello! I’m Taylor Tomasi Hill (@ttomasihill), writing from good ol’ Dallas, Texas. I’ve lived in New York and Europe and by no means pictured myself transferring again to my house state. Generally I miss the power, the artwork, and the structure, however basically I find it irresistible right here. Final yr I helped launch The Yes, a purchasing app that brings collectively excessive, low, runway, and rising vogue manufacturers. It’s tremendous customized and ranks the whole lot in inventory in response to what you’ll love and what’s in your measurement. My official title is Artistic and Style Director—I get to concentrate on the enjoyable stuff. I’m a sounding board, a actuality checker, a model advocate, and a troublesome buyer, and have a hand in buyer expertise, inventive, model partnerships, and social media. My finest recommendation for loving your work? Loving the folks you’re employed with. I really like discovering office gems, and I’ve recruited a whole lot of my staff from my previous lives within the vogue trade.
I genuinely get pleasure from vogue, so it’s nice that purchasing is mainly a part of my job. I are inclined to gravitate in the direction of surprising, lighthearted types and I combine the whole lot: playful, critical, excessive, low, masculine, female, trendy, classic… When folks begin getting dressed once more, I’m actually enthusiastic about Huishan Zhang. Each bit is made-to-order, in order that they’re so wildly distinctive and particular. And my newest denim discovery is Tu Es Mon Tresor. Each pair of denims is hand-finished in Japan, which is cool. Along with vogue, my work positively will get me within the magnificence neighborhood.
I hardly ever go for magnificence traits in my regular day-to-day routine, however have traditionally had a foul behavior of making an attempt new issues proper earlier than huge occasions—not really useful! It hasn’t finished me any favors previously, so I are typically a bit gun-shy now. Plus, there’s one thing about girls who embrace their pure magnificence that’s so putting to me. Blythe Danner, Gwyneth Paltrow, Christy Turlington, Diane Lane… We’re so used to seeing injected, tremendous taut faces that it’s refreshing when somebody embraces growing older confidently. That being mentioned, I do dabble with Botox—I’m simply very conscious of creating certain I at all times appear like me.
Probably the most defining magnificence determination I’ve ever made was coloring my hair purple in school. I used to be an artwork faculty pupil, and went by way of phases of self-dyed blue, inexperienced, and firetruck purple streaks. In my junior yr I truly went to an expert, and so they satisfied me to attempt purple. It caught! Now I have a tendency to scrub solely two or 3 times per week, since my hair is extraordinarily dry. I can rely on one hand the variety of instances I’ve picked up a blow dryer previously yr—normally I simply braid my hair whereas it’s damp to present it some texture, and as soon as it’s dry I shake out the braid and spray Oribe Texturizing Spray so as to add quantity. I hardly ever brush my hair. If I do it turns into frizzy, and anyway, I really like a messy ‘do; my inspiration is Kelly Wearstler’s completely undone hairstyle.
Joanna Czech is the very best software in my magnificence toolkit. Why, you ask? Joanna is thought for diagnosing pores and skin and making a custom-made pores and skin routine for every of her shoppers, so each product in my routine is a part of a strict routine she prescribed. First, it’s the traditional Biologique Recherche energy couple: Lait VIP O2 face cleanser and Lotion P50 PIGM 400. Then I combine BR’s Serum T.E.W.L. and Serum Amniotique and pat throughout my face and chest. Joanna at all times says that the face begins on the nipples and ends on the hairline, so I attempt to put on a deep V-neck tee at night time to permit for simple software. Over that I layer Oio Lab Brightening Treatment with Vitamin C. I alternate between the Augustinus Bader Rich Cream and Weleda Skin Food, and at last, a number of pats of Royal Fern anti-aging eye cream seals the deal. I actually didn’t understand how vital it’s to prioritize my mug earlier than I began seeing Joanna. I’m tremendous captivated with the whole lot she recommends—I’ve additionally been testing a whole lot of her personal product line, which is slated to come back out this fall.
If it’s morning, I’ll additionally use Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen. And one other Supergoop product I really like is their Healthy Glow Sunless Tan. It’s taken me years to discover a good sunless tanner that doesn’t flip orange, go two shades too darkish, or odor terrible. I really like these things as a result of it creates a extremely delicate pure glow, although you can even add a brand new layer every day to make your tan slightly darker. It soaks in instantly, so I can put my garments on after making use of with out worrying about stains and streaks. And the scent is so faint I can sleep in it with out being bothered—or bothering my husband!
My favourite make-up look is simply concealer, rouge, and slightly smudged lip. I begin with Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in Beige, which is at all times listed as magnificence editors’ favourite for a motive. It’s the best possible concealer I’ve tried—it stays on for hours and provides nice protection with out wanting like I’m sporting make-up. I like to make use of my fingers to heat up, after which apply slightly underneath my eyes, round my nostril, and, if I’ve unintentionally gotten slightly solar on my face, on my vitiligo. Then I mix it out with an Artis brush. If I would like slightly extra protection as a result of I’m being interviewed or going to an occasion, I’ll mix two shades, II and III of Westman Atelier’s Vital Skin Foundation within the palm of my hand and apply that throughout with my fingers.
The truth that my every day go-to cheek colour is MAC rouge in Fleur Power in all probability dates me, but it surely’s a traditional. Significantly! I’ve been utilizing it since school, and apply it with a small Sephora journey brush. Then if I need a bit extra colour, which is virtually at all times, I apply Tata Harper’s Cheek Tint in Very Well-liked on simply the apples. I at all times apply Mustela Nourishing Stick as a matte base for my Bobbi Brown Pink Mauve lip liner, which provides me a stained look fairly than a line. Then I give my eyes some love with Glossier Boy Brow, a fast eyelash curl, and RMS mascara. I’m allergic to many magnificence merchandise, and I’ve discovered that to be the very best for delicate eyes. I had been making an attempt to get my arms on Jenna Lyons’ new Loveseen eyelashes for some time—they’re continually bought out! However I lately acquired a pair and may’t wait to check drive them for one thing particular. The ultimate contact, particularly within the winter months, is Tata Harper’s Concentrated Brightening Essence. I dab slightly on high of the whole lot to present my pores and skin a dewy end, and I’m out the door. Wait, no! One final dab of rouge and then I’m out the door!”
