Hello, Dollface! After a couple years of fawning over Katya Vladykina’s flawless glow, we thought it would be only fit to get the scoop on her daily beauty routines. From natural-wear to glam-time, Katya spilled all of her secrets. To see what she advises, take a look below:

1. Is there any kind of makeup that you can’t leave the house without?

I am super simple when it comes to makeup and I love to keep my face fresh! So, I just bring my Rose or Cocoa Butter Mini Lip Vaselines (to die for) and Mario Badescu’s Rose Water Face Spray.

Vaseline – Rose

Mario Badescu – Facial Spray

Vaseline – Cocoa Butter

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. What is your daily skincare routine?

My skin care routine mostly happens before I go to bed. I wash my face with a Cera Ve Cleanser that does wonders at gently getting everything off. I’ve also been using Witch Hazel as toner – which is a natural option with lots of amazing benefits! Finishing it off, I’ve been using First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream as a deep moisturizer through the night. I wake up and just re-moisturize my face for the sun beams of the day ahead (preferably with some SPF)

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Gel

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Powder Duo

3. What is your go-to natural look? What products do you use?

My go-to natural look starts and ends with some definition on my eyes and eyebrows. I looove the brow products by Anastasia Beverly Hills and use the Brow Powder, as well as the Clear Eyebrow Gel. I ALWAYS curl my lashes, add some mascara, & voila! In my opinion, mascara is just black goop so I switch it up every time but right now I’m using Urban Decay Perversion and it’s bomb 🙂

4. What is your go-to “night out” look? What products do you use?

Now for the night out look – just add shimmer shimmer shimmer!!!! Shimmer on the cheeks in the form of a Becca Highlighter, shimmer on the eyes in the form of Stila Liquid Eye Shadow (Kitten color is gorgeous), smudge out some eyeliner, and add some lipgloss!!! My fav is White Russian by Buxom (partially because I’m Russian & very white most of the year).

Buxom Full-On Lip Cream – White Russian

STILA Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow – Kitten Karma

Becca Cosmetics – Highlighter

5. What is your favorite drugstore brand?

Growing up, Elf was the ISH!!! $1 makeup??? Heck ya!!!! However, NYX has some really bright and fun options for any occasion.

6. What is your favorite era of makeup?

Absolutely right now. I love the natural, fresh dewiness and glow. Today’s makeup accentuates natural beauty at its finest and lets the personality outshine the highlight. 😉

7. What cosmetics brand are you excited to try, but haven’t yet?

Oh man – Definitely the high end French makeup brands: Estée Lauder, Dior, YSL, etc. I’ve always dreamed of having a little vanity full of French lotions, oils, and all things lovely.

 

 

Coconut Oil

8. What is your most cherished beauty product?

COCONUT OIL – it is my forever holy grail product!!! I put it in my hair, on my body, basically everywhere I can. Not only does it make you want to eat yourself at every hour of the day, but it is so so so moisturizing on just about everything!

9. Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?

Ohmygosh, Sephora is my black hole heaven on earth – I could spend hours in there spritzing and swatching!!!!

10. What do you love about makeup?

I love that makeup is so universal. To some it adds confidence, and to other it’s self expression or a form of art. I love exploring it in all three of these ways. 🙂

 How old are you?

I’m 15 years old.

Where are you from?

I was born in California, but raised in Hawaii, so that will always be my home. 🙂

When you eat a pack of Skittles, do you save the best flavors for last? Or do they go first? 

I don’t know if I save the best for last or eat them first, but I definitely eat them in rainbow order… and I do the same with M&M’s!

Which superpower would you want?

If I could have a superpower I would be able to become a mermaid whenever I want, and be able to fly. (I can’t pick just one because they are both equally awesome!) 

Do you have a book that changed your life?

There’s too many to choose from– I’m a nerd when it comes to reading, I love it!!!

Have you ever prank called someone?

Let’s just say *67 was the first thing i ever memorized. 😉

What inspires you the most?

I’m incredibly inspired by creative people from all walks of life and their stories, photos, art, books, and movies. I’m always the person walking out of a movie theatre pretending to be a spy/pirate or something hahaha!

What’s your favorite punctuation mark?

My fave is hands down the exclamation point–I use them all the time! However, my second favorites would be the colon and the parenthesis… because they make a smiley face! 🙂

Where would you take your dream vacation?

Honestly, I love traveling and would be happy just riding on a plane–it’s my favorite thing! I’d love to go anywhere tropical or with a big city, but I don’t think I’ve found my dream spot yet. I can’t wait to find it.

 

Whose fictional wardrobe do you want the most? 

That’s a tough one to answer because I want them all! I would have to say I’ve always loved the costumes from Pirates of The Caribbean, Mia from The Princess Diaries, and Kenzie from the series Lost Girl (Her punk and out-there clothing is the best). I love the style from 10 Things I Hate About You… and of course I’d kill to have the ENTIRE wardrobe Rachel (Jennifer Anniston) wears on Friends!

Are your feet the same size? 

I wish! My left foot is a little bigger, but just enough where I always feel a little squished.

Which emoji would best capture your essence?

I definitely use 😂😂😂 wayyyyy too much because I always laugh so loud at everything! I also love 😈 and 😻
