IF YOU COULD HAVE A PERSONAL GLAM SQUAD OR A PERSONAL CHEF, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE? GLAM SQUAD FOR SURE, RIGHT (SORRY, FOODIES)? LET’S FACE IT, BEAUTY IS AN ART, BUT IF THERE’S ANYONE WE TRUST TO GUIDE US IT’S OUR NEWEST HAUTE MAMA JESSICA PRINCE.
As Senior Beauty Editor at Harper’s Bazaar, Jessica covers everything from new products to industry experts to the seasonal trends that go beyond pastels for spring. Endlessly inspired by her own job and the ability to bring great products and information to women, Jessica is our go-to for all things makeup, fragrance, skin and nails.
Due with her first baby in September, Jessica is naturally still glowing even in the dog days of summer. For her tips on dressing during pregnancy and some of her all-time favorite beauty picks, read on.
The best thing in my closet is…my Jimmy Choo Notion Wedges. They are so comfortable and elevate any summer dress in seconds.
I hope my child inherits my…sense of humor and work ethic.
Pre-bump dressing vs. during-bump dressing means…a rotation of flowy dresses (like the HATCH Lily Dress) and taking time to accessorize in order to feel polished.
My top 3 ‘do’s for pregnancy dressing are…
1. Black is your friend.
2. Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize.
3. Invest in a few key pieces and don’t overbuy.
HATCH makes me feel…chic and confident.
Sometimes I think my life’s calling is…to be a mom!
My creative zone is…in the beauty closet. The constant influx of new products is inspiring and I love coming up with stories that will benefit our readers and make them feel happy and beautiful.
Something you probably don’t know about me is…A doctor advised me to cancel my “babymoon” to Aruba because my ears wouldn’t clear after a horrible head cold. I took my chances and thanks to a pair of EarPlanes arrived healthy. It was the perfect getaway.
I can’t leave my house before…applying a spritz of Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Eau de Parfum. With notes of bergamot, orange flower, and amber it smells heavenly…like a vacation to the Italian Riviera in a bottle.
Five things you’ll always find in my bag…
1. Purell…I’m a total germaphobe, especially when riding the NYC subways.
2. Almonds…for pregnancy hunger pangs.
3. By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Nude Hydra Balm Lipstick…a barely-there tinted balm that plumps your lips on contact.
4. My iPhone…I’d be lost (literally) without my google maps, and I check Instagram and The Weather Channel A LOT.
5. Sunglasses…I always carry two pairs at a time. Right now I’m switching off between Ray Ban Aviator Classics and illesteva Leonard Tortoises.
If I could go anywhere in the world, I’d go…back to South Africa! My husband and I journeyed there on our honeymoon and it’s our dream to one day return with our family.
