How To Shop The Drugstore Beauty Aisle Like A Supermodel

Taylor Hill exudes this cool, Colorado-inspired aesthetic. You can just imagine her strolling down the street in a breezy, white midi-dress, scuffed leather boots, tousled curls, and a cable-knit cardigan falling off one shoulder. And it’s that effortless aura that landed her the role as the new face of Ralph Lauren Romance.

Romance is a cult-favorite fragrance, but this year the floral scent — which has hints of rose, white violet, and musk — is getting a refresh with updated packaging and a new frontwoman (or couple rather, since Hill’s boyfriend, Michael Stephen Shank, is also in on the campaign).

Hill has the kind of chill approachability that makes us want to know everything about her look. Like, how she spot treats a huge pimple; what her morning routine looks like; and, of course, what fragrance she spritzes on in the morning.

We got all that and more, including a full breakdown of the drugstore beauty products Hill swears by, during a recent interview. Ahead, the 22-year-old model shares her under-$10 must-haves. So, even if you’re nowhere near après-ski (in bank account or aesthetic), you can shop CVS as if your closet is filled with riding boots and $400 fringe-trim turtleneck s, capturing some of Hill’s bohemian vibe for yourself.

The supermodel tells us that on busy mornings, she’ll clean any dirt or oil that might’ve accumulated over the night the rapid-fire way. “If I take a shower, I’ll use a face cleanser,” Hill explains of her morning routine. “But if I don’t have time, I’ll just grab a face wipe to refresh my skin when I wake up, before moving on to serum and moisturizer.”

Hill calls her long, curly hair “a wild beast” that she typically styles in an messy topknot when she’s not on set. “The best thing I can do to tame the monster that is my hair is to pull it up into a bun,” she explains. “But, when I attempt to wear it down, I’m always spraying my roots with dry shampoo. I love this one by Pantene because it gives me some volume and body, without leaving that white, chalky streak that always shows up on my dark hair.”

“I never walk into a drugstore without perusing the nail polish selection,” Hill tells us. “I’m constantly on the hunt for a good, cheap nude nail polish that looks nice on my skin tone — I usually end up with one of the Essie bottles.”

Maybe even more important than polish, Hill tells us that she’s regimented about keeping her nails smooth and shaped. “Every time I’m in the drugstore I pick up a new nail file,” she admits. “I love shaping my nails, so I like to have a small file in all my bags, and I always seem to lose them.”

When the supermodel gets a pimple, she uses a spot treatment you can pick up from the drugstore… but not in the skin-care aisle. “I actually use concentrated vitamin E oil capsules on my acne spots,” Hill explains. “I just take a gel capsule, crack it open, and dab the liquid on the pimple. Because it’s the most concentrated form of vitamin E, I find it’s a more natural remedy — gentler than using a harsh, over-the-counter gel or drying peroxide.”
