Costume designer and stylist Jennifer Rade dresses everyone from Angelina Jolie to Caitlyn Jenner.
“Every day is different,” says the L.A.-based Rade. “I could be working on a music video, television series,
or ad campaign, or pulling red-carpet gowns.”
8:30 AM WAKE-UP
SHOWERING FIRST THING wakes me up. Besides, I have to wet my curly hair every morning to restyle it; otherwise, it’s a dreadlock-y mess—like my hair went clubbing while I was asleep! I use Wen Fig Cleansing Conditioner (4) to keep it hydrated and tamed.
I wrap my hair in a microfiber towel, then put on my facial moisturizers: Trina Reneá Red Tea Moisture Boost hydrating serum, followed by her 24/7 Defense (2), which looks like carrot juice and is packed with antioxidants. Over that, I apply Dr. Lancer’s The Method: Nourish Sensitive Skin cream.
I scrunch a handful of Tresemmé Tres Extra-Firm Control Mousse through my hair to bring out my curls and then dry it with a diffuser attachment, which takes a solid 20 minutes. After that, I use an Enzo Milano curling wand to define some of the coils in the top layer and spray the whole thing with John Frieda Frizz Ease Firm Hold Hairspray.
I love a smoky eye. I use MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder, then smudge on MAC Eye Shadow in Concrete (1), followed by a coat of mascara. I don’t wear foundation, but I blend IT Cosmetics No. 50 Serum with its Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Correcting Cream (3) and apply it wherever I get red. For just enough lipcolor, I dab on Korres’ tinted Lip Butter (5).
My skin is extremely sensitive, so I swear by natural, gentle products like Mariana Chicet Wild Honey Body & Hand Soap, Éminence Organics Calm Skin Chamomile facial cleanser, and Epicuren Fresh Unscented After Bath Moisturizer body lotion.
I always have a roll-on bottle of Sage Pearl Perfume Oil (6) in my bag. Everyone tells me that I smell delicious, and this vanilla- musk-sandalwood blend is my secret.
I don’t drink coffee, but I sip Teas’ Tea Unsweetened Pure Green Tea throughout the day; it’s so refreshing. I have cases of the stuff delivered via Amazon Prime every month.
