First Lady Beauty Secrets

Tips and tricks from the women of the White House

Contributor Caylee Ashwell shares beautifying tips and tricks based on a handful of the most iconic women of The White House. Her classic copycat ideas are all below!

As we celebrate President’s Day, it’s only fitting to honor the influential women who served by our Presidents’ sides. Each First Lady left a unique mark on Washington and waltzed through the presidencies with style, beauty and grace. Today, we’re taking a look at the beauty tips and tricks we’ve learned from the women in The White House.

  • Jackie Kennedy: The style and beauty icon used the best of the best, at all times. Her go-to moisturizer, Phormula 3-9 Repair Cream by Erno Laszlo, is a still a cult celebrity favorite. Ingredients like vitamin A and raspberry stem cells work hard to promote healthy cellular activity and repair dry, damaged skin. Trust us, it’s a worthy investment.
  • Michelle Obama: The former first lady got her best-kept beauty tip from none other than Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. The product is Biotulin Supreme Skin Gel, a non-injectable ‘organic Botox.’ The stellar, secret ingredient is acmella oleracea plant, which is a natural anesthetic that reduces muscle contractions and, consequently, the appearance of wrinkles. The best part? It’s proven to show results in as quick as one hour.
  • Nancy Reagan: Look up photos of Nancy Reagan and it’s almost impossible to find her in any color but red. In fact, she wore it so often that the signature shade of scarlet later became known as Reagan Red. Looking for an instant mood-boost? Follow her footsteps and add a swipe of NARS Dragon Girl to your lips before going out for the day.
  • Hillary Clinton: While the politician often abstains from commenting on topics like beauty and fashion, her former makeup artist, Yasuo Yoshikawa, spilled one secret on her behalf. The artist claims that the most dramatic change a mature woman can make to her makeup routine is switching from a powder to liquid foundation. While powder highlights dryness and sits inside lines, a high-quality liquid foundation brings out skin’s natural vibrancy and offers a more dewy look. Make the switch and give Too Faced’s Born This Way Foundation a try.
