Alexa Chung Brings Parisian Chic to NYC, Speaks on Her Makeup Faves

Wearing a quintessentially Paris-inspired look, Alexa Chung channeled Bardot as she strolled the streets of New York City. Opting to pair a black&white stripe t-shirt with a pair of indigo blue jeans, navy espadrille wedges and a small Chanel bag, Alexa completed the effortless casual outfit with a featherlight fedora hat by Maison Michel

Recently opening up on her makeup routine, Alexa says she is rarely loyal to one product:

"I'm even more fickle with make-up; I like to experiment and mix my own lipsticks and eye shadows - a trick I learnt while modelling, and I love a bright red lip. I'm not great at looking after my skin, but I do use a good moisturiser, drink lots of water and try not to booze too much."

Speaking on her go-to lipstick, Alexa says she loves YSL:

"I buy a lot of YSL Beaute lipsticks in bright coral and pink shades. I keep getting the same colours though. It's only once I get home that I realise I already bought that one. I live in New York so I go to the salon to get my nails done. My favourite colours are Essie's Tarte Deco and Lilacism."

Alexa reveals that before, she never knew why people needed makeup:

"I used to ask my mum why people wear foundation. Now I understand! I like using YSL and Laura Mercier products, I like a cream blush rather than a powder formula - I'm obsessed with dewy skin."
