Charlotte Tilbury Muse Michaela Jaé Rodriguez Loves This Lippie


Michaela Jaé gets her beauty inspiration from 90’s runway stars

The New Jersey-born actress says she draws beauty inspiration from Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Iman. “So many women have influenced me in the beauty world,” she says. “You can’t help but to look up to them and aspire to be like them, especially women like Naomi and Iman. They are Black, strong iconic women who had to fight.” 

As a Tilbury muse, Rodriguez takes her self-care rituals very seriously, especially when it comes to her skin. “I am very very adamant on skincare in the morning and at night,” she explains, adding that she sometimes wakes up at 5 a.m. to get it done. 

Rodriguez says she starts off with a steam to clean out her pores, then cleanses and exfoliates. Next she uses Charlotte Tilbury products on her skin, including the Collagen Superfusion facial oil, Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir, and Charlotte’s Magic Cream.

“The oil is what saturates it. It deeply penetrates your skin,” she says. “Then you have the serums that smoothes out your pores, and then you have the moisturizer that lets it all set.”

Rodriguez repeats the same process at night, but swaps out her daytime moisturizer for the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream. “You can put it on at night and you’ll wake up in the morning and you’ll be refreshed. Like really, you will,” she says.

Michaela Jaé on the “perfect” Charlotte Tilbury Lip Product

Tilbury’s skincare isn’t the only CT product the Loot star loves. Rodriguez tells us her favorite beauty product is Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat pencil in the shade “Foxy Brown.” 

“It’s like the perfect amount of chocolate,” she says of the lip liner with a creamy, velvety finish. “Like it’s not too dark, it’s not too light, it’s just right in the middle. And it goes with every single last one of her lip colors.”

If you’re not a fan of lip liner, but want another recommendation for your makeup look, the American Horror Story star is also a fan of Tilbury’s powders.”I love her powders,” she shares. “Her translucent powders. I love her colored powders. All of her collections are really great.”
