If you were to scan your favorite red-carpet photos from the past few years, a great number of them would likely bear the handiwork of Pati Dubroff. The widely respected makeup artist has counted leading ladies like Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore, Eva Mendes, and Hilary Swank as clients. She’s collaborated with photographers like Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, and Annie Leibovitz, and is responsible for a number of our favorite recent cover beauty looks, too, including Emma Watson on December’s Marie Claire, Julianne Moore on November’s Allure, and Lindsay Lohan’s Grace Kelly-inspired turn on October’s Vanity Fair. When she’s not tending to a bevy of boldfacers, Dubroff is busy in her new role as official makeup artist for Clarins USA (she previously spent a number of years as an international spokesperson for Dior). Besides having a ridiculously impressive résumé, Dubroff also happens to be one of the coolest, most positive-minded ladies we have ever had the pleasure of knowing—with a freakishly radiant complexion to boot. Eager to find out more about her own routine, we asked Dubroff—who splits her time between New York and L.A.—for a few of her favorite bicoastal beauty destinations.
The At-Home Spa products: Clarins Relax
“My bathroom is my sanctuary. This is where I go daily to decompress, refresh, and restore my body, mind, and spirit. My favorite products are from the Clarins Relax body line. I especially love the jar of body scrub followed by a self-massage with the body oil. This oil is the very first product developed by Clarins and it hasn’t changed in over 50 years. Don’t mess with perfection!”

The Hair Team: Chris McMillan and Negin Zand
“I’ve been very fortunate to be able to work with the best hairdressers in the world. I’m very low-maintenance but I know that a great haircut and color make a huge difference. Chris McMillan is the only person who I trust to cut my hair. He recently gave me ‘the Freja’ and he was right; it’s perfect for me. And for many years I have entrusted my color to Negin Zand at Sally Hershberger. She gets it right every time, whether it’s rich chocolate or beachy highlights.”
