In the Catskills, Seasonal Farmhouse Dinners With House-Made Beer

Caitie Kelly

My morning routine is how I set myself up for the day. I splash my face with water and will often use Oskia’s Super C Beauty Capsules. I’m a big fan of Augustinus Bader’s The Light Cream and then Merit’s Great Skin Instant Glow Serum, which is very subtle. I’m really into their makeup: they have this Bronze Balm in a stick and blushers that come in little jars that are easy to swipe on. I use RMS UnCoverup Concealer and Supergoop Glowscreen SPF 40. I have an orangy red lipstick from NARS called Heatwave that I’ll wear here and there. I was on a shoot recently and the makeup artist told me about using this Schwarzkopf Styling Gel on your brows — it’s the only thing that actually stays for me. Kure nail varnish has the best range of colors and is the most durable of all the natural products; I like Rose Milk.

At the end of the day, I use a gel cleanser from Oskia called the Renaissance Cleansing Gel. In 10 seconds, you feel like all the muck is off your face. I love using a muslin cloth for a deep cleanse. Eve Lom’s Cleanser was probably the first I ever bought, and my mum uses it. Augustinus Bader has an Ultimate Soothing Cream that I’ll slather on in the winter months when it’s very cold in London. And I always have a tube of Homeoplasmine in my wash bag. It’s great for lips, dry patches of skin and brushing your brows. There’s a Sisley Exfoliating Enzyme Mask that I use on Saturday mornings that you mix in your hand with water. Instantly it perks you up. There’s a brand called Tan-Luxe that makes a gradual tanner that I love for the body, and I put a few of their face drops into my moisturizer at night. I think they make it look like you’ve had more sleep.

My hair is quite low key. I have learned that I need to use a purple conditioner here and there to lessen the brassiness in my blonde hair, so I’m currently using one from Kérastase. I’m a real bath girl, and there’s an Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser that I love; it has the best smell. There’s this brand Verden that does really great bath oils, too. When I was pregnant I discovered the brand Mutha, and I think their Body Butter and Body Oil are the best. It’s the one thing that I feel actually locks in moisture. I’ve worn Comme Des Garcons 2 since I was about 16, but I’ve also started using Ffern scents because the Comme des Garcons is quite heavy. A candle scent that’s forever my favorite is called Cyprès from Diptyque; it’s slightly musky and cozy.
