REFY Founder Jess Hunt shares her AM to PM skincare and makeup routine with Emirates Woman.

Talk us through your morning beauty routine.

I think my morning routine goes beyond just skincare, so I always wake up and try to take a moment to myself before going onto my skincare. Often, I’ll have juice to start my morning and I try to take supplements each day to support my health. My morning routine usually consists of cleansing and brightening, and I use products to defend my skin and keep it super healthy like the Zo Skin Health Daily Power Defence and, of course, SPF every day. I’ll always use my REFY Lip Buff to prep and hydrate my lips and I end with the REFY Primer which is a 3-in-1 serum/moisturiser and primer for your makeup. I’ll even wear this on no makeup days as it gives such a glowing finish and using the roller applicator really sculpts my face for the rest of the day. I always pop on my REFY Lip Gloss before I head out as well as it’s a high-shine gloss with all the benefits of a balm and keeps my lips hydrated!

How does your evening beauty routine differ?

I love taking my makeup off at the end of the day and really focusing on cleansing and hydrating my skin. I use SkinCeuticals Simply Clean Gel to wash the day off and then I will use the Hydrating B5 Serum to give my skin a hydration boost.

What are your go-to skincare products?

I love my REFY Primer and Lip Buff, but I am also a huge fan of SkinCeuticals and Zo Skin Health products.

How would you describe your approach to makeup?

I do love a minimal approach to makeup, especially for everyday. I love versatile products that adapt to the kind of finish I am looking for, which has been a big driver in developing some of the REFY products. I am also a big believer in products that simplify my routine, another key driver behind REFY, as this means I can get the desired results without having to spend hours getting ready.

What can always be found in your makeup bag?

My makeup bag is almost entirely REFY products now, which is always so crazy to see as the brand grows. My REFY Lip Gloss can always be found in every bag of mine, not just my makeup bag, as it really is a daily essential, especially the new tinted glosses.

Fragrance-wise, which is your favourite?

This is super hard to answer as I feel like I associate a lot of different fragrances with different memories or times of my life. It’s really crazy how a fragrance can unlock a memory, so I find it really hard to choose. At the moment, I am loving Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Baccarat Rouge because it really makes me feel confident and strong.

How do you choose your evening fragrance?

Honestly, it depends on my mood and what I am doing that evening! I’ll wear something different for a dinner with friends than I would for an event. I really love to mix it up.

Talk us through your hair routine.

I try to keep it as simple as possible and focus on nourishing and hydrating my hair, especially after a shoot when it has been styled quite a bit! I am a big fan of Ouai and their shampoos and I have recently been introduced to the K-18 hair masks which are amazing. I use GHD’s heat protectant spray for when I am styling my hair and I also love the Shine Spray from Colour Wow for that added sleek, glossy look!

What is the most unusual item in your makeup bag.

The REFY Lip Gloss carry case we released as part of our limited-edition Tinted Gloss collection! At first glance, it just looks like this random metal box but it’s actually a compact mirror so I can keep my lip gloss in it and apply using the mirror!

This is The Trailblazers Issue – which are the most game-changing beauty products you use?

So many REFY samples that are absolutely game-changing are in there that I wish I could share with you. This next year we have some insanely innovative products launching and I am honestly so excited!
