Before the hustle and bustle of the new Fashion Week kick in, Kaufman gave us a sneak peek at her beauty essentials for a perfect summer vacation as well as the beauty looks she is looking forward to this season.
Beachwear, casual or glamorous? What’s your go-to look when you’re on vacation?
My usual look is casual. I love wearing light, easy dresses that will take you from day to night, such as the La Perla Autografo dress, accompanied by sandals. I can wear this look all summer long.
What are your three best fashion tips for holidays?
Always bring sunscreen for protection and wear sunglasses whenever necessary. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated and to improve your skin, and always have comfortable shoes on hand for strolling around.
What accessories do you always take with you on vacation?
I always wear a necklace — it’s my must-have accessory. For any dinners, bracelets or earrings will complete any outfit.
What is your holiday beauty routine?
A simple routine of rose water mist and facial oils — I love those!
What are your favorite makeup looks for day and night?
During the day I try to only wear fragrance, but I love wearing makeup at night and turning myself into a “glamorous” lady. My normal routine is mascara and eye shadow, and I’m in love with lipstick — I usually go for pink shades.
Do you have a particular holiday anecdote or a signature souvenir to share?
I collect cups from every place I go… I’ve become obsessed with the habit. It’s like taking a little bit of culture from each place I visit.
