"I wash my face while I'm in the shower. I like something really creamy and light, like the Tata Harper Refreshing Cleanser, since it's really just washing off some surface oil and not makeup."

"I know it's not good, but I have to wash my hair every day (and blow it dry!). It's the only way I feel put together. If I don't wash it, my hair just looks depressed. To counteract the damage from the water (it fades my color) and the heat (it also fades my color, among other things), I use the most nourishing, treatment-based hair products I can.

Right now, I'm loving the Tigi Fashionista shampoo and conditioner. They're both tinted purple, which not only makes things a little more exciting in my shower (don't worry, it doesn't stain the white tiles), but it also keeps my blonde from yellowing and getting brassy.

I also love the Moroccanoil Volume shampoo and conditioner, which is hydrating and thickening all at once. The most important thing about both of these formulas, though, is that they smell incredible."

"Every now and then, I'll do a mask for extra credit. The Kerastase Nutritive one for fine hair, the Malibu Blondes Treatment and the super-silkening Aquage SeaExtend Power Infusion are my favorites."
"As far as the rest of my shower routine, my dream scenario is shaving with a Venus razor using the Eos Shave Cream in vanilla, and washing with either the Molton Brown Black Pepper Bodyscrub bar or the Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Bar. Both cleanse and exfoliate in one, making you feel like you're giving yourself a mini massage and leaving your skin much, much smoother."
"Once I'm out of the shower and in my fluffy white Frette robe, I spray in a leave-in treatment. Either the It's a 10, which I've sworn by for years, or the new Pureology Treatment Spray. If I don't, I notice a HUGE difference in my hair."
"I detangle using the Wet Brush, which has these really flexible bristles developed specifically for getting through wet hair without snagging or causing breakage."
"At this point in the process, I take a break from hair and put on the Skinceuticals CE Ferulic serum, which is full of antioxidants and makes my skin look really glowy, and the Eve Lom Day Cream."
"If I don't put on makeup, I put on the Josie Maran SPF 40, but if I do, it's either the Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35, Amore Pacific Color Control Cushion Compact SPF 50, or the original Bare Minerals SPF 15 foundation."
"For concealer, my favorites are Sisley and Clé de Peau."
"I have to wear blush. I'm obsessed with the Sunday Riley Blush in Blushing—it's the perfect color, the perfect level of pigment, and the perfect texture."
"If I put on mascara, it's Maybelline Falsies or Trish McEvoy. I do my brows more than I do my lashes these days, though. My Sania's Brow Bar Pencil is essential."

"Now that my makeup is done and my hair isn't as sopping wet, I apply a volumizing product at my roots—usually the Sally Hershberger Thickening Mist or the Sachajuan Volume Cream.

Sometimes I put in a little Kerastase Ciment Thermique into my ends to make sure they don't dry out during the blow dry."

"I'm addicted to the Harry Josh dryer—I can probably dry my hair in three minutes using it. I do this with my hair flipped upside down for more body and volume…plus, I feel like a little extra blood flow to my head in the morning leaves my skin glowier."
