1. Sleeps on a silk pillowcase, since satiny fabrics reduce hair breakage and facial wrinkles.

2. Actually gets eight hours of shut-eye, because concealer can only go so far.

3. Starts the day with an antioxidant-rich smoothie to make skin glow from the inside out.

4. Takes a morning shower that includes head-to-toe exfoliating, shaving, and rinsing hair (if it's been more than two days since the last wash).

5. Moisturizes body with a sophisticated French-girl scent like lemon or lavender.

6. Uses a daily face SPF of at least 50, since antiaging is a proactive lifestyle.

7. Flosses.

8. Uses teeth-whitening toothpaste.


9. Plucks stray eyebrow hairs.

10. Fills in sparse eyebrows and arches.

11. Invests in semi-permanent or permanent facial hair removal like laser and electrolysis.

12. Wears primer, as there's nothing elegant about contouring smudges.

13. Massages facial toner into the skin to prep it.

14. Has both a day and night eye cream (the latter being heavier).

15. Knows what no-foundation foundation looks like.

16. Curls her eyelashes before applying mascara.

17. While she doesn't overdo her makeup for daytime, she has a go-to polished-lipstick look such as cherry red or poppy pink.

18. Uses lip liner and a lip brush to avoid a smeared pout. (Has also mastered the ability to drink wine, coffee, and water without smudging her painted pucker.)

19. Speaking of H2O, she drinks the recommended eight glasses a day — usually enhanced with a lemon wedge or a few cucumber slices. It's all consumed in her chic, eco-friendly water bottle.

20. If she has not gotten her weekly blowout, then she wakes up 10 minutes early to curl her own hair — prepping it with a heat-protectant product first, of course.

21. Understands the difference between dry shampoo and texture hair spray and applies both correctly.

22. Uses cuticle oil and checks nails for polish chips, which she quickly fills in (she owns all of her own lacquer colors). Nourishes palms with an SPF hand cream.

23. Has a signature fragrance scent.

24. Packs emergency kit supplies in her bag, including a small mirror, lipstick, face mist, and blotting papers.

24. Fully washes her face at the end of the day — no matter how tired or tipsy she may be.

25. Unwinds with a hot salt bath, a spa-like candle, and the right face mask for her skin type.
