Cliché: What are you top beauty/fashion routines?
Hanna Hotsyk: I love having a bit more of free time while getting ready to go out. In such situations I spend more time than usually doing my makeup. I love using the highlighter for my cheekbones (my favourite is the Benefit one) or playing with the eyeshadows (Marc Jacobs or Givenchy). I love having my hair curled with a straightener, but be careful, do not do it often because it damages your hair badly.
Name the top three products you couldn’t live without this season.
Body Creams and Body Butters (Victoria’s Secret, Body Shop, or Bath and Body Works), Candles (Yankee Candle, Zara Home) and Woollen skirts. Fall is the perfect time to wear a woollen skirt with a warm sweater and a leather jacket on a sunny day!
Any staple items that you think are fall must-haves?
A warm cozy sweater. Seriously, how can you survive ‘sweater weather’ without a sweater? This season, I am obsessed with grey and I love how grey woollen sweaters look with jeans and leather shorts and olive pants. And don’t forget a matching scarf. I love silky ones. Beige scarf combined with a grey sweater is a must-wear outfit.
What’s your number one tip to feeling confident in what you’re wearing?
Leave enough time for yourself. Do not get ready in a hurry. When you have time to carefully pick an outfit for the day and make your hair and makeup, you always get a satisfied feeling of a finished look. I personally always think of what I am going to wear the day before, try to find something original. It is hard for me to feel special in a pair of simple jeans.
