How Ruby Rose gets glowing skin

And the mood-boosting reason she loves her tattoos

Beauty Crew Contributor / May 25 2017

We’ve been envious of Ruby Rose’s complexion for what feels like forever. It’s clear, it’s radiant, and it’s youthful. In fact, we’d probably trade our all-time favourite discontinued lipstick shade just to find out the Australian DJ’s skin care secrets.

Well, there’s no need to part with any of our much-loved beauty products, because the Orange Is The New Black star recently revealed her beauty routine to The Cut, and it’s oh-so-easy to replicate.

When it comes to her morning routine, it’s all about cleansing her skin from the inside out. 

“I’m a clean freak when it comes to my skin,” Ruby revealed. “I drink a lot of water and green juices.” 

That explains the glowing complexion then. 

So many tattoos

Off-duty makeup

Those brows!

But what does she actually put on her skin? 

“I use a lot of light products that are not chemical-based. I like to stay moisturised,” she said. “I’ll focus on mascara and brows, and maybe a light kind of BB cream. 

Her BB cream of choice? Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector. Sadly, it's not currently stocked in Australia but we think Urban Decay's Naked Skin Beauty Balm is a great alternative.

Next to her luminous skin, Ruby is known for her many tattoos, which she used as a form of self-expression alongside makeup and fashion when growing up. 

“I see tattoos as a journal, a way of keeping control of my life,” she shared. “I can look at my arms, legs, and stomach and have memories that trigger me every time. I can have hope.”

We’re so happy Ruby’s found the vices that make her happy, and we’re even more delighted she revealed the secret behind her radiant skin. *Downs a glass of water before wandering off to purchase a green juice.*

Cherie is somewhat of a digital dinosaur, having kick-started her beauty writing career back in 2009 at PRIMPED alongside industry expert Zoë Foster Blake. Since then, her words have appeared online and on paper for BEAUTYcrew, POPSUGAR, beautyheaven, New Idea, and Fitness First, while her marketing know-how has helped brands such as L'Oréal Paris, The Body Shop, A’kin, and Dr. LeWinn’s add a journalistic flair to their digital content. She is a vocal advocate for (physical) sunscreen, is rather fond of a bold lip, and is utterly terrible at styling hair.
