There was Kendall and Drew and Miranda, Chaka and Paloma and Hari and Valentina. A fresh-faced gang of top models and celebrities threw open their powder room doors and revealed their most sacred hair, makeup, and skin rituals for Vogue in 2017. Some are stolen from their mothers, like Priyanka Chopra’s all-natural, homemade lip scrub from India , and some look, at first glance, just a little bit crazy (see Cassie’s 10-second smoky eye trick or model Grace Hartzel’s Friday the 13th sheet mask). The common denominator? It’s all in the name of beauty.
That’s why, to close out the year, we’ve assembled a visual cheat sheet of their greatest hits. There are face misters, jade rollers, moisturizers, and foundations. Contour powders, curl creams, face oils, and concealers. But beyond every product was a brilliant trick worth stealing. A few of our favorites? A dark brown mascara doubles as brow gel, and a rosy lipstick, blended onto the apples of the cheeks, provides the perfect I-just-came-in-from-the-cold flush.
Chapped lips are no match for these skilled pros: Just ask Victoria’s Secret model Josephine Skriver, who scrubs her lips with a toothbrush to exfoliate and plump. Other gems worth remembering: Highlighter is the new lipliner, and the best hair serum may not be hair serum at all. “I feel like it creates some sort of vibe,” says sex columnist and Viceland host Karley Sciortino of her unconventional go-to product, plucked from a bedroom side table. Anything to get the job done—because as the legendary Chaka Khan knows, the secret to achieving icon status is simple: “Always look your best.”
