Meet The Editors: The Lucky Team Shares Their Guilty Pleasures, Earliest Style Memories And More

Jean Godfrey-June, executive beauty director

What is the oldest item in your closet? I have a red and white striped terrycloth hoodie that my mom took with her to summer camp—in the late '50s! It's still the chicest thing ever—I feel like Jane Birkin would wear it over a bikini bottom. And sort of like the adorable tween in Moonrise Kingdom might wear it, too.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three beauty products would you take along? Yes to Cucumbers  SPF 30—I only use natural sunscreen, and Yes to Cucumbers RULES in scent, sink-in-ability (with no nano) and strength. Lancome Flash Bronzer for Legs—there is no better color in self-tanning, plus it's tinted so you can instantly see if you've made a mistake. And Intelligent Nutrients' face oil—I love all face oils, but this one is just….vastly superior!

What's the most important style and/or beauty advice you've ever been given? Pat—don't rub—your concealer!! It makes the hugest difference in the way you look. When you rub, you move the concealer to a different part of your face—away from what you're trying to conceal! So you dab the concealer on and lightly pat—it will seem like it's not going to blend, and then suddenly, there you are with perfect skin that looks like no makeup! Bonus best advice: Go with your natural hair texture. Sally Hershberger saved me countless hours when she said, "You've got great wavy hair—why would you blow-dry it straight?"

If you could only shop at one store (or from one brand) for the rest of your life, what would it be and why? Net-a-Porter is HEAVEN: fun, wildly practical, always surprising.

If you could raid one of your fellow Lucky editors' closets, whose would you pick and why? Alexis Bryan Morgan's. If I could fit into her fabulous outfits—they're very lady, but they always look real and sexy instead of prim or stilted—I would be…really happy. Also, I love how Laurel Pantin always mixes a feminine thing—some slinky silk skirt or a fabulous heel—with total boy items, like a fisherman sweater.
