So that’s where Liv Tyler gets her Elven glow.
The “Lord of the Rings” actress shares her 25-step (yes, 25-step) beauty routine in a new video for Vogue, which adds up to $1,715.49 for all 26 products by the New York Post’s calculations. (The Post is owned by the same parent company as MarketWatch.)
For starters, the 42-year-old “Stealing Beauty” star walks through a Gwyneth Paltrow Goop-worthy daily skin care regimen in the almost 17-minute video that begins with pulling her hair back with a scrunchie that a friend made for her out of a piece of Hermès
silk, which she calls “the chicest scrunchie in the world.”
You can’t put a price tag on that, but her two cleansers and two face masks to maintain her natural beauty add up to $294. There’s also a dropper fun of CBD oil from Lord Jones Royal Oil ($100) and a facial massage brush ($38) to help contour the chin and neck.
“My secret obsession and passion of my whole life has been skin care,” she said. “I think I would have become a facialist if I didn’t start acting.”
Tyler, who had a cosmetics contract with the LVMH
luxury brand Givenchy for 10 years, also revealed that she shares this obsession with her father, Aerosmith singer Steve Tyler. Turns out, he is also “Crazy” about his skin care.
“When I go visit him, I usually spend half the time in the bathroom with him, just going over products,” she said. “He’s got his whole bathroom filled. But if you look at him, he’s turned 70 and he has the most beautiful skin, and it’s because he takes really good care of it.”
And viewers are buying into it, with many gushing over on Tyler’s soothing delivery on social media and calling on her to do ASMR — and also clamoring to get a glimpse inside her rock star dad’s bathroom, too.
“I want to watch Liv Tyler wash her face for the rest of my life,” wrote one Twitter user, while a YouTube commentator added, “I’d love to see her dad Steven Tyler’s skin routine now that she’s mentioned it.”
Some people couldn’t wrap their heads around fitting a 25-step beauty routine into a busy weekday, like a Twitter user under the name Patricia who noted that, “By the time she has reached Step 12 I’ve already put in a full day of work.”
Tyler also shows off her makeup palette, which is much more subtle than her “Harlots” character’s heavily rouged cheeks and powdered face. Her favorites include a waterproof Clinique mascara ($19.50) and a Rodin + Vanessa Traina Collection lip stain ($35), plus Glossier lipstick ($18), before finishing the whole look off with a spritz of $100 Sisley-Paris Floral Spray Mist.
Then again, that’s all a fraction of the global cosmetics market that’s expected to hit $390 billion by 2024, with L’Oréal
Procter and Gamble
among the key players. The global skin care market is expected to reach $184 billion by 2026, led by the brands above as well as Estée Lauder
and Johnson & Johnson
But Tyler also uses a simple toothbrush to comb her eyebrows, and a few drops of Visine to rid any redness from her baby blues. And she drinks lots of water and green juice, and gets plenty of sleep.
“That’s my natural everyday makeup look where I’m trying to look like I have no makeup on, but I do have makeup on,” she said.
Here’s how the 26 products used in creating that “natural” look break down by the dollar.
