Interior designer and blogger Caitlin Flemming is all about natural, clean, chic design—and this philosophy translates into her beauty routine as well! We admire how fresh-faced and effortlessly gorgeous she looks without trying too hard. Luckily, we got the chance to talk with her about her beauty and health routine. We’re inspired and refreshed by her all-around approach to simplicity!
Your look is so natural and fresh. What do you consider your beauty style?
You summed it up: I love a fresh look. I’ve never been a huge makeup person and think women should embrace their natural beauty. I’ve always gone with the motto, “less is more.”
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve picked up over the years?
Always wear sunscreen.
If you’re in a rush, what are the essentials you put on?
Rodin Face Oil, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (it has SPF in it—bonus!), and mascara. This is pretty much what I wear every single day. Makeup is usually the last thing I think about when I’m getting ready in the morning!
Do you have any bad beauty habits?
Yes, I think everyone does. I usually never wash my face at night. (Gasp!)
Do you spend much time on your hair? What’s your go-to style?
When it comes to my hair, I’ve figured out that I only have to blow dry the bottom layer and then the roots for about 5 to 10 minutes. Then I let it loose for a natural wave/curl. Some days it works, but if the fog rolls in, I have to put it up in a messy bun or ponytail. As you can tell, when it comes to hair and make-up, I’m all about doing what is easy.
Do you workout or sleep a lot? What are your secrets?
Since I’m a busy designer during the day and a blogger at night, I have to find time to step away from the computer to give myself a little attention. I have found that the best thing to help me unwind is working out—either doing a cardio class or Pilates reformer class. Luckily, I have a gym a block away from my house. At night, my husband and I made a new rule last year: computers off around 10 or 10:30 p.m. It’s been a miracle, because then we go right to bed. I can get at least 7 or 8 hours of sleep!
