I’m Lucia Cuesta and I’m from Madrid, Spain. I have a jewelry brand called Them Bones Jewelry and also work as a freelance stylist with my twin sister Helena. We’ve produced work for Vogue and brands such as Givenchy, Guerlain and Jimmy Choo.

Here is my Skincare routine!


Face & Skincare

I use the Avene Hydrating Creams, which have fixed all of my skin problems. I’ve always had dry skin…even beneath my eyebrows, but since I started to use the Avene products, those problems have all but disappeared. In summer I normally use the Rich Hydrating Cream and in winter the lighter one. I also always wash my face with the Eau Thermale Avene Cleansing Foam.

Important Fact: I mix a few drops of Mandarin Essential Oil (100% natural) into my moisturizer because it is rumored to be the “Forever Young Oil”. I’m really into essential oils and this one is naturally anti-aging.

When I get home I use the Biotherma Makeup Remover Sensibio H2O. It’s a great makeup remover and also removes any remaining pollution left on my skin. If I have a pimple, I’ll just put a little bit of Hexomedine Transcutanée and the next morning it is usually gone!


Lips & Skin

My fav lip balms are the Nuxe Rêve De Miel, Kiehls Lip Balm #1 and Malin+Goetz Mojito Lip BalmI have a good story about the last one by Malin+Goetz.  I was in Greece on vacation and badly burned my lips. They were absolutely terrible, so I put this lip balm on at night and by morning they were super hydrated and the burn was gone! Every time I travel I absolutely have to take it with me.

Let’s talk about face masks! I always use the Kiehl’s Calendula and Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque, I just leave it for five minutes and then afterward I’ll massage the remaining serum gently into my face using circular motions. The other one I use is the Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Mask. I leave it for ten minutes and once I remove it, my face looks so fresh and soft.


Shower & Hair

For my body, I use the Le Labo Mandarine and Sesame shower gel as well as the Le Labo body lotion made with sesame oil, rosemary leaf and sunflower oil. Top marks for being vegan and cruelty-free.

For my hands I like to use the Embryolisse Lait Creme…actually not only for my hands, I also put it on my face and on my neck.

Every time I travel I take the Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist and the La Mer Pressed Powder, which comes in a cute pink pale case.

For haircare, I have two types of shampoo that I use on high rotation. The first is the Kiehl’s Rice and Wheat Volumizing Shampoo and the second – which I cannot recommend enough – is the Sassoon Illuminating Clean Shampoo for colored hair. I was bleach blonde for about five years and this shampoo saved my life. Another one of my allies is the Klorane Shampooing Sec Extra Doux, it is indispensable.


Makeup & Fragrance

I don’t usually wear much makeup and I really don’t like foundation. A thing I always do, however, is use the same colour on my lips that I use on my eyes. I use Benefit Boing Concealer with YSL Mascara Volume Effect or Chanel Dimensions Mascara. For my lips, I use Burberry Lip Definer Oxblood in nude and Kiehl’s Naturally Nude Butterstick Lip Treatment. I also never leave home without the Haloscope Face-highlighter by Glossier. In terms of fragrance, Gucci Bloom, Le Labo Vanilla, and Chanel Gabrielle Eu de Parfum are made for me. I also have a lot of Diptique at home, they’re my favourite…especially the Jasmin one.
