Beauty 411: Penny Lovell

-------

Penny LovellLondon-born stylist Penny Lovell has been trolling the various facets of the fashion world since the tender age of fifteen, when she landed her first job outfitting the mannequins in a local boutique. Lovell also logged time as a publicist for Burberry and, in the editorial realm, assisted the fashion director at British Elle before setting her sights on New York and a styling career. Since crossing the pond in 1999, and then crossing the country for L.A. in 2004, she has built a steady editorial and celebrity clientele: Emma Watson, Rose Byrne, Taylor Schilling, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, among them. Lovell also lends her styling wisdom accrued from many years in the biz to Harper’s Bazaar’s website, for which she writes a bimonthly “Tricks of the Trade” column. Here, the woman behind some of the most well-heeled celebs on the red carpet shares her own beautifying favorites.

The Pout Outfitter: Bite Beauty

“I love this lipstick store on Prince Street in New York. You can customize your own lipstick—both the color and the scent—and everything in the formula is organic and edible. It’s so fun! I take a girlfriend every time I am in NYC for an after-lunch treat. I can easily spend an hour in there mixing up new colors, and I generally leave with at least three. For those not in New York, Bite’s standard lipsticks are also great and available online at Sephora.”

The Skin Expert: Kate Somerville

“My go-to facial place. I can’t wait for my next Ultimate Kate facial. In between visits I use the Dermaquench Liquid Lift and Cytocell Dermal Energizing Treatment at home to keep the benefits going. My husband always comments on my skin and how ‘young’ I look after this facial without knowing I had an appointment! He also steals the Derma quench lift….”

The Getaway: Ojai Valley Inn & Spa

“I just returned from another spa weekend here and can’t recommend this resort enough. The spa is lovely and the staff lovelier; the resort itself is so lush, gorgeous, and peaceful. It has its own microclimate so the weather here is good pretty much all year round. Bike rides, hiking, delicious organic food, gorgeous little town down the road—there are way too many options to cover in one weekend, but next time I am determined to take the Apothecary Aroma Custom Blending class to make some bath oil. Most of all, it’s perfect for my three-year-old daughter, with a large children’s pool and multiple activities—all far, far away from the adults.”

The Signature Scent Purveyor: CB I Hate Perfume

“Until I discovered CB I Hate Perfume I, well, hated perfume. Then, my client Bella Heathcote bought me Mr. Hulot’s Holiday for my birthday and it smells just like the beach—a fresh, evocative, not-cloying, scent that improves my mood immediately and is perfect in the summer or year round to remind me of the season. Now, I’m obsessed. Recently I added Burning Leaves, Winter 1972, and Fire From Heaven to my collection, and I not only use them as perfume, but also in the office as a room scent before fittings, selecting one depending on my mood. Bella tells me his shop in Brooklyn is amazing and I can’t wait to visit next time I am in the city.”

The Skincare Brand, Par Excellence: The Organic Pharmacy

“There is not much I don’t love about this U.K. brand, but I am never without their Carrot Butter Cleanser, which takes off my makeup (including waterproof mascara) in a second and never feels dry or stings. I am also a huge fan of their supplements and buy all my vitamins and homeopathic remedies there—the one for stress is particularly effective, as I discovered during award season one year!”

The Daily Regimen

“Elemental Herbs All Good Lips lip balm is the best ever; I cannot live without it. And I wear Arbonne Water Resistant Sunscreen—which is all natural—all year round, no matter wherever I am, whatever the weather.”

The Makeup Musts

“I love the Chanel Perfect Brows all-in-one compact. There are three colors to mix together to match your eyebrows, and mini tweezers and brushes. A magnifying mirror seals the deal. Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick Eye Color in Sugar Frost is my go-to for everyday; it’s a sheer subtle gold-beige sparkle and looks great with just mascara or over another eye color as an added highlight. I use it all the time. And for nails, Marc Jacobs Beauty polish in Gatsby—it’s a rose gold, the perfect new neutral, and it’s long lasting.”

The Multipurpose Miracle: Body Bliss Mood Melt

“The essential oil has multiple uses for me; this blend is balancing, and I put a drop on my pillow at night and a few drops in my bath. It really chills me out and smells divine.”
