Try Breakfast (and Lunch and Tea) at Tiffany’s

Try Breakfast (and Lunch and Tea) at Tiffany’s

I don’t want to think too hard about getting ready in the morning so I end up sticking to the things that I know. I’ve been using Youth to the People Superfood Cleanser for years. Same with Epicuren body wash and body lotion and Shu Uemura Silk Bloom shampoo and conditioner. Once a week, I’ll rub Christophe Robin Purifying Scrub With Sea Salt on my scalp — it feels like a science experiment. My dermatologist, Jessica Weiser, turned me on to Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil. It leaves my skin glowy and hydrated and has this gentle rose smell to it that is lovely. I use Augustinus Bader the Cream as my moisturizer, or I’ll use Weleda Skin Food. I’ll use Biafine if I’ve just been on a flight or am sunburned. Fig. 1 makes a lovely Vitamin C Eye Cream that brightens.

After I put on my sunscreen — EltaMD UV Clear Sunscreen — I apply Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation with a beauty blender. For a bronzer I use Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream from Chanel with a big brush. I’ll put on Ilia Clean Liquid Liner, maybe a little thicker at night. If I’m going to an event, I’ll add the Water-Fresh Blush from Chanel Les Beiges. During the day, I use By Terry Baume de Rose Liquid Lip Balm. My aunt introduced it to me in college and I’ve used it since. I’ve also gotten into the Clarins Lip Comfort Oil. For fragrance, I love Taffin’s Le Marron, and I just ordered the Hermès classic Caleche.

In the summer, I slather Supergoop’s Play Everyday Lotion SPF 50 on my body. In winter, I use Tata Harper Revitalizing Body Oil and Santa Maria Novella Relax Fluid Body Cream. There’s something really luxurious about applying one of those and then wearing a thick sweater and being the only person who can smell it. I love Austin Austin Palmarosa & Vetiver Hand Soap — it is on every sink in my house, and makes a great housewarming gift.

Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is now home to so many sleek waterfront hotels that it’s sometimes hard to remember the scrappy, artsy vibe that pulled them there. Visitors nostalgic for the early aughts will feel more comfortable at Penny Williamsburg, a 118-room hotel named for a Chihuahua whose portrait hangs over the entrance (a commission by the artist Michelle Devereux). “This is not a high-budget, Manhattan-style project,” says the Chihuahua’s owner, the hotelier Andrew Zobler, who wanted the space, he says, to feel “tactile and warm,” like an enviable…
