I never get sick of creeping the beauty routines of French models, and Camille Rowe is no exception. The fact she's half-American actually enthralls me more, because I assume her recommendations are based on the best of both French pharmacy and everything in Sephora. Lucky for me, I had the chance to mop her entire beauty regime. From the foundation stick she swears by for covering spots, to her simple trick for adding weight to flyaway hair, Rowe's The Top Shelf has quickly become one of my favorites.
"My skin is combination. It's super dehydrated and really sensitive to everything, probably from all of the travelling and different waters and such, so I try to give it as much hydration as possible. That means I drink a ton of water when I wake up, and then I wash my face with the Joëlle Ciocco Lait Onctueux ($110)—which I just ran out of. I like Biologique Recherche P50 ($85) too. I'm not using it every day right now, but I should be because I have some breakouts."
"Darphin just send me a bunch of things. Their Aromatic Purifying Balm ($75) is life-changing, it's my favorite thing in the world. I have a really bad habit of picking at my face and that you put on and the next day it’s disinfected and healed. It also smells so good! I should put it on right now. The Caudalie Instant Detox Mask ($39) is good for breakouts, too."
"I’m obsessed with eye creams! I’ve tried every single one because I’m always tired. In the evening I love the Dior Hydra Life and it’s super hydrating—I just wake up refreshed. I also like this SCBI Stem Cell Gold Serum ($370), which I use when I look tired because it brightens everything up. Shiva Rose's Eye Cream ($95) is great, too."
"When my hair is dry, I love the Bumble and Bumble Prep ($26). Because my hair is really fragile, it sometimes flies up, and this just adds weight to it and it doesn’t feel like product. I hate the feeling of dirty hair, so I'll use Batiste if I need dry shampoo. Christophe Robin's Regenerating Mask ($71) is great for a deep treatment. I also don’t really blow dry it—I always just tuck it behind my ears."
"My foundation is the Hourglass Stick ($46) in Ivory—I don’t put foundation on all over, but if I have a pimple or if I get red around my nose and chin, I’ll just use a bit. Then the Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate ($88) I use more as a bronzer. It just makes me look tan. I don’t like to look glittery, but maybe in the evening, I’ll do more of a highlight. My lipstick is the pink YSL Volupté Tint-In-Balm ($34) and I use that on my lips and cheeks. It looks like your lip color just enhanced a little bit, but I haven't been able to find the shade anywhere anymore."
I always curl my lashes with the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler ($23). I used to never do anything else on my eyes, but lately I've been super into a dark smoky eye. I use Diorshow Mascara ($30) with the Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in Meteore. And I’ll use that with the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Stick ($46) in Bark. It’s so easy to apply, because you just smudge it on, and the Dior shadow goes on top of that."
