A Beauty Minute with Namsa Leuba

9 months ago by

What does your morning beauty routine look like?
I use rose water, La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Eye Lift, and a day moisturizer.

What products do you keep near you throughout the day to get you through the day?
I always have La Roche-Posay Barrier Repairing Balm on me.

What does your nightly beauty routine look like?
I use rose water again and a rose musquée oil.

How do you define beauty?
To feel a harmony and an emotion.

What is the intersection of art and beauty in your mind?
Art and beauty are to be linked either by what beauty shows figuratively, or what it represents conceptually.
