Christine Quinn is a woman of many talents. She’s a real estate agent that sells multi-million dollar homes on Selling Sunset, she's a beauty guru in the making through her collaborations with companies like Ciaté, and she’s the author of the upcoming book How To Be A Boss B*tch. She’s a total triple threat who has also mastered her beauty regimen both on and off-camera.
During an interview with Nylon, Christine revealed that although it seems like she's always glammed up, she likes to give her skin a break when she's not working. "I love my no-makeup moments just because it feels good on my skin," she said. "I used to correlate makeup with beauty, and I was consistently covering up to make myself feel beautiful. I think I finally got to a place where I realized that wasn't the case, so I started leaning into that."
Since becoming the one to watch on the popular Netflix reality series back in season one, Christine has been more than willing to share her beauty secrets with fans. For example, she loves products from Farmacy and haircare brand Oribe, along with a few other must-have items that help her maintain her signature look.
While she has her forever loves, Christine still rotates her products from time to time. "Beauty is all about experimentation and trying different things, and it took me a while," she told Nylon. "My beauty routine is always evolving. I love trying new products, and my routine is constantly changing."
If you’re curious to know exactly what products Christine can’t live without, read on for all the details.
She swears by her own products.
When she's not closing major deals with LA's most eager home investors, Christine's indulging in her glam lifestyle. She even came up with a few products of her own that she incorporates into her everyday routine. The star recently launched a limited-edition capsule collaboration with Ciaté London to create products like the Villain Pump Plump Lip Gloss and the No Filt-Her Universal Complexion Brightener.
In an interview with the brand, she said, "I was so excited to work with Ciaté cosmetics because it’s a female-run brand. I mean, Charlotte [Knight] is incredible at everything that she does... I knew about it and owned products before, so when they reached out to me I knew it was just the perfect relationship."
She gets her glow in more than one way.
The Los Angeles sun might do wonders for anyone's skin, but Christine still loves the extra glow she gets from self-tanner. One of her go-to's is one that she's been using for years, the Sisley Paris Self Tanning Hydrating Body Skin Care. "It smells like their lotion, not self-tanner, and it gives you a really gradual tan," she told The Strategist. "In addition to that, it’s really hydrating. I use it probably three times a week."
She's a fan of dry shampoo.
Aside from a bold red lip, Christine is also known for her long blonde waves. She mentioned in an interview with The Cut that although her color can be hard to maintain, she has a few products that make the upkeep process a breeze. For starters, she loves Oribe's For Beautiful Color shampoo and conditioner.
In between washes, she reaches for the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo for Light Tones. "I wash my hair probably every other day or every three days, and in the in-between period, this not only keeps my hair looking fresh but it also gives me this freshly-washed-hair feeling," she said. "It’s the perfect formula."
She loves a good face oil.
Before discovering Farmacy's Honey Grail Antioxidant Facial Oil, Christine used the brand's Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm. "It gets rid of even the most waterproof makeup," she told The Cut. "But then I also fell in love with their face oil. I’ve had a lot of problems with oils before. They’ve felt very surface-level, and they didn’t do anything, but this one gives me an amazing glow and really hydrates my skin."
She never skips eye care.
It goes without saying that having a well-rounded skincare routine is essential for being camera-ready—and for Christine, that includes the skin around her eyes.
One of her favorite eye products is the Bausch + Lomb Lumify Redness Reliever Eye Drops, which she started using faithfully after it was recommended to her by a makeup artist. "I went on Amazon and bought 30 of them," she told The Strategist. "Now, I keep them everywhere because I use them every single day even if I’m doing things or not." She followed up with a testimonial about how much the drops helped her when she once took a late-night flight from New York to L.A. "These drops took me from a zombie to human in no time," she said.
Aside from the aforementioned life-changing eye drops, Christine is also a fan of the 111Skin Sub-Zero De-Puffing Eye Mask. The product contains special ingredients like peptides to prevents puffy eyes improve the appearance of dark circles.
"Sometimes I’ll sit in my office when I’m not working, and I’ll just put them on," she said. "I take them on airplanes, too. I’ve tried literally every eye patch out there, and nothing has topped these."
