This is Her One Beauty Rule
"Best thing: If you want to seem like you've made an effort, just literally slick on lipstick. It ties everything together. You don't need to do your eyes. You don't need to do anything else; just lipstick, and you're ready to go," she told Vogue.
This is Her Go-To Getting Ready Music
"Ooh, it changes up a lot. I love a good bit of Motown that puts everyone in a really happy mood. My friend's just moved in with me, and she's very into the top 10. It's been educating for me because I've never really listened to the radio before, so that's really fun. There are some good dance beats out there. And then Mura Masa. There's something about his music that makes me feel like I've got everything and can handle it. It makes me really happy," she told Vogue.
She Loves Baths
"My mum instilled in me a deep love of baths. I love baths! I think that would be my primary form of self-care. Baths have really helped me through lockdown. I like to make a ritual out of them. I'm big into the salts, and I make my own blend of essential oils for whatever it is that I want the water to give me. I'm a very spiritual person, so I love the act of getting into a bath, cleansing yourself, and then allowing whatever it is that you want to get rid of just stay in the tub. Recently, I've been using a lot of almond oil in the bath, which, hazard warning: It makes it very slippery. For anyone trying this at home, make sure you're holding onto something when you step out of it! Along with almond oil, I've been using a lot of sandalwood, jasmine, and lavender if it's nighttime, because it's just gorgeous," she told Vogue.
She's Into Crystals
Big time—prior to The Witch, actually. I'm such a big believer in cosmic destiny and putting one foot in front of the other, and my feet led me to that film. It's been really fun watching [that kind of wellness] take off. I think it's wrong for O.G. witches to be like, "Ugh, now everyone has crystals." It's like, Yes! Amazing. People are starting to open their minds to the idea of minerals having properties that can help you out, and it being less "inject this; this will make you feel great." Just maybe take a couple of breaths and hold on to this crystal," she told Vanity Fair.
This is Her Take on Skincare
"I'm pretty low-key," she told Vanity Fair. "Growing up in Argentina, I was very much the roll-in-the-dirt kind of kid—the ultimate tomboy. So it took me a while to start washing my face, but now that I have makeup on it a lot, I like this cleanser by Chanel called Sublimage. It's the one thing that doesn't ever make me break out because I have such sensitive skin. There's a nutrient mist by True Botanicals which is really nice. I've spritzed it in the face of every boyfriend I've ever had. Moisturizer I'm a bit more witchy with, in the sense that I love olive oil, I love avocado oil. And Egyptian Magic is great. You just put that on before you go to bed, and then you wake up and you're like, 'Oh! I look all happy and like I've slept for 19 years.'"
