Rebecca Minkoff likes to keep her beauty routine simple.
When it comes to skincare, the fashion designer, 39, told Page Six Style that she generally sticks to three steps or less. Which is why she gravitates towards high-power products like Joanna Vargas Rejuvenating Serum ($100), Linné Renew Face Serum ($94) and Sunday Riley’s C.E.O Cream ($65).
She tops off her skincare regimen with Coola Mineral Face Sunscreen ($36) on days when she’s in the sun — a crucial fourth step.
Minkoff similarly prefers natural and clean makeup, and gravitates toward brands like Honest Beauty, Saie and Kosas, all of which boast botanicals and good-for-you ingredients. “My theory is that’s why women look so much more aged and older than men at the same age, because we’re putting so much crap on our skin,” she says.
That same mentality was at the forefront of Minkoff’s latest venture: her first foray into fragrance. The designer’s namesake scent — which features top notes of cardamom, coriander seeds and bergamot as well as notes of tobacco, jasmine and patchouli — is vegan, gluten-free, phosphate-free and manufactured without animal testing, and the bottle is made with 100 percent recyclable scalloped glass.

Aside from ingredient mindfulness, some of the fashion mogul’s key tips include sleeping with her fake lashes ($5) on “Beyoncé-style,” only putting mascara ($7) on her real lashes, using waterproof eyeliner ($9) to tightline her eyes and covering gray hairs with Bumble and Bumble’s Color Stick ($26).
