A beauty minute with Laila Gohar

5 years ago by

Morning: I wake up in the morning and the first thing I do is have some coffee, before I even shower. I’m obsessed with these Turkish towels that my mom used to have when I was little and I hate all other towels, it’s the only thing I use. I adore Buly, a line of French cosmetics revamped by my friends Ramdane Touhami and Victoire de Taillac, for body wash. I wash my face in the morning with Bioderma Foaming Face Cleanser.

I don’t wash my hair myself. I have really intense, crazy hair and I recently cut it all which I thought would be easier but it’s actually more difficult for me. I found this Dominican hair salon in South Williamsburg and I go there every four or five days. And she puts it in rollers and then I take it out and that’s my look.

I don’t wear too much makeup. I use Clinique moisturizer. If I wear makeup, I use Benetint on my lips and cheeks. I like that you can put it two places. I have Chanel mascara, a MAC peach blush and I don’t wear foundation. If I wear lipstick it’s MAC Ruby Woo. I wear Diptyque Eau Lente perfume, it’s the same one that my parents wear.

I use the rose cream from Weleda and also their sage deodorant. When I get sick of that one, I use the Aesop deodorant. I make this little spray for myself using orange blossom water, it’s something that I cook with. I put it in a spray bottle with a little bit of water and I spray it all the time, everywhere. I don’t have a day look and a night look, it’s all the same look.

Day: I have the Benetint and Rosebud Salve in my handbag.

Night: I take my makeup off in probably the wrong way. I like to think that I remove my makeup first with the Bioderma remover, but actually I don’t. I just wash my face with this cleanser from the French pharmacy, it’s really basic. And I use the cream that they use for babies when they have a rash, Homeoplasmine.”
