Style quotes

We love Rose’s fashion sense, and her beautiful skin and hair! Luckily for us, she often talks about fashion and beauty products, so we can try our best to copy some of her routines 😉 We’ve gathered some quotes were she talks about her beauty routines, best beauty tips, favorite designers and more.

“I think good skin is always appealing, so actually a skincare regime would be my go-to favourite thing, like a nice moisturizer. I’ve been loving Kate Somerville lately. I think it’s nice to see people’s real beauty and who they are. In my own life, when it’s not for photo shoots or anything else, I think it’s nice to have quite a minimal look.” – Rose on her go-to look (whowhattowear, 2015)
“My body type in general doesn’t lend itself to model-ish clothes and big baggy T-shirts and things like that. I tend to look a lot better with tapered waists and very feminine designs, so working on a show based in the 1950s is just a godsend for that reason.” – On 50s inspired fashion (whowhattowear, 2015)

“Feminine. Practical. Fresh.” – Describing her personal style in 3 words (whowhattowear, 2015)

“In New Zealand, my favourites are Juliette Hogan and RUBY. I absolutely love their lines; they have brilliant stuff. In terms of out here… I mean, all sorts. I walked into Barneys the other day, and that’s a dangerous place for me to be. I like little boutiques as well, like Mohawk General Store in Silver Lake, and there’s another one called Bucks & Does. Both carry a great range of designers and some braver choices that I wouldn’t necessarily make walking around a department store.” – On her favorite labels (whowhattowear, 2015)

“I really love that era for fashion and style in general. Those costumes really flatter a woman’s body. And pin-curling shorter hair can be so chic. It’s so damaging, though! I have yet to discover a way to create a look like that that doesn’t cook your hair.” – On ’50s fashion (Allure, 2015)

“I’m a big fan of hot flannels—here you call them washcloths, don’t you? I use a really hot cloth to steam my face and make sure I have no residual product. Then I use a witch-hazel toner, and I’ve been using Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Cream. [The brand] does really great face gels and eye gels, too. I like to keep it quite simple, and I don’t wear a ton of makeup. I do use a little bit of foundation, and then I’ll use a thin line of eyeliner and mascara, maybe.” – Describing her beauty routine (Allure, 2015)

“There’s a great line called Trilogy. I like to use natural and organic as much as possible, and they have a lot of great natural lines, so I miss that a little. We use [Lucas’] Papaw a lot at home, too. I’ve noticed it more and more out here.” – On NZ products she miss when away from home (Allure, 2015)

“Laura Mercier moisturizer—I use that a lot. I really like not having to do too much. I’ll use mascara because I need a little help with my blonde eyelashes. I like They’re Real! by Benefit. Those two are my go tos for if I want to leave the house fresh-faced without too much effort.” – Her beauty “Must Haves” (OK Magazine, 2014)

“Just moisturize. Since I was growing up in New Zealand where there’s a hole in the ozone layer above us we get so much sun damage to our skin and the thing we can do to look after ourselves is use sunscreen during the day, but making sure your skin is well hydrated while you sleep. My mom used cold cream her whole life and she’s got great skin!” – On best received beauty advice from her mother (OK Magazine, 2014)

” I work with a stylist called Devon Nuszer and a makeup artist called Aaron Barry and between those two I trust them implicitly. I have the things I do over and over again and that I feel safe with but they inspire me to take risks and I trust them so much. For example, I had never slicked my hair back. Besides for ballet in a bun, I never would have slicked back hair. Aaron told me to try it one night and with the dress I was wearing it worked really, really well. I would never have done it otherwise. I think having guidance from a makeup artist and stylist I trust really helps.” – OK Magazine, 2014

“I’m definitely proud to wear Kiwi fashion. I get lots of questions about my clothes. On Light Years people would say, ‘Where are those pants from?’ and I’d say ‘New Zealand, but you can get them online! Emily Miller-Sharma from Ruby and Liam contributed some clothes to the wardrobe. I’ve always been a huge fan of theirs.’” – Women’s Weekly, 2012
