Model Devon Lee Carlson Spills Her Skincare Secrets
The model and vlogger shows us the products she swears by for glowy skin.
If you’ve been subscribed to Devon Lee Carlson‘s YouTube channel, then you’re probably as obsessed with her infectiously fun personality and her effortlessly cool sense of style as we are. Recently crowned the most influential style influencer in a poll of NYC teens by the New York Magazine, the 25-year-old model and co-founder of phone case company Wildflower Cases can seem to make any outfit work. An expert in combining high and low aesthetic, the Instagram star is often seen in a perfect pair of ’90s-style jeans with a colorful designer top, or a girly slip dress paired with some Nikes and a Prada handbag.
When it comes to makeup and skincare, Carlson is all about keeping it natural and fresh. As much as she loves a bold eye look that she’d wear at a photoshoot, her everyday beauty regimen mainly consists of products that help protect and replenish the skin, giving it that sought-after dewy finish.
We sat down with Carlson at The Ambrose Hotel in beautiful Santa Monica where she talked us through her favorite beauty products and her secrets to achieving glowy skin. During our conversation, she also shared her experience of attending Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020. Read all about it below.
Devon Carlson’s Beauty Essentials
Simple Micellar Cleansing Water: So gentle and nice. I use it every morning and every night to take off makeup and clean my face.
Origins GinZing Ultra-Hydrating Energy-Boosting Cream: I’ve shouted out this product too many times, but it just makes me feel so refreshed. It’s like a nice glass of freshly squeezed OJ.
Dr.Jart+ Dermask Micro Jet Clearing Solution: Essential before a photoshoot. I always do these the night before a shoot and it just leaves my skin looking tight and fresh and clean.
(MALIN+GOETZ) Sage Styling Cream: The secret to my slick back hairdos. It doesn’t make your hair look crunchy and is so luxurious.
Glossier Mango Balm Dotcom: Instantly heals dry chapped lips. I’m addicted and it’s always in my purse.
Kosas Tinted Face Oil Foundation: My favorite foundation I have ever used. I always go for light or medium coverage and a very glowy look, and this foundation does just that. I’ll apply with my fingers or with a beautyblender, and it is just the best.

Two years ago. It’s the best decision I have ever made. I enjoy capturing this exciting time in my life and being able to go back and rewatch everything for the memories.

My friends, my family and my dog. These things make me the happiest.
