“I actually don’t wash my face in the morning unless I’m working out, and then of course I will wash my face afterwards. Usually I just splash cold water on my face and pat it dry,” says actor Phoebe Dynevor in the latest installment of Vogue’s Beauty Secrets. Then the Bridgerton star begins her routine with Sunday Riley’s C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum.
“When I was growing up I had mostly dry skin, so I started layering on Vaseline and put it everywhere. Then I learned a proper skin-care routine,” she says before going in with another Sunday Riley favorite, the Auto Correct Eye Cream.
“Bridgerton was challenging because your skin is being put through so much, you’re not getting enough sleep, and they’re putting makeup on you everyday,” explains the 26-year old who typically does not wear foundation or powder otherwise. “It’s very intense for your skin.” She uses a gua sha to depuff—a practice she prioritizes when she has time, cooling it in the refrigerator and gliding across her skin in the car on the way to work.
“I’m pretty obsessive about my brows,” Dynevor says, moving onto a makeup routine she’d do “for a fancy lunch.” She blends the Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Face Foundation with her fingers, then adds Nars’s Creamy Concealer with a brush. For brows, she opts for the Charlotte Tilbury Brow Cheat because of how easily it glides on. “I’m just going to brush them up first. I like to fill in underneath because I like them to be straight,” she says as she pencils her pair in to be a bit chunky before finishing them off with Barbara Carranza’s Brow Soap.
Dynevor curls her lashes, then applies a coat of Charlotte Tilbury’s Full Fat Lashes Mascara. “The show came out at a time when everyone was at home, and so in some ways that was a good thing but it was strange being at home with [social platforms] and that being the only resource to see how the show is doing,” she says of the response to Bridgerton season one. She explains that it took stepping “out into the real world” to realize the success of the show and see how it touched people. She rounds out her routine by filling in her beauty mark. “It’s funny how the things you hate when you’re younger, you start to realize make you unique and individual,” she notes.
