Unzipped: Katia Beauchamp
10 must-have products that take the beauty entrepreneur from working out to going out.
As co-founder of Birchbox.com, Katia Beauchamp is out to redefine the way women buy beauty products. The Harvard Business School grad's online subscription service sends thoughtfully packaged, high-end samples to your doorstep once a month, with full-size products and magazine-quality advice available on its website. Fresh off winning Women's Wear Daily's Digital Innovator of the Year award, Beauchamp, a longtime dancer, gave us a peek inside the cosmetics bag she brings to class.
LeSportsac Makeup Bag
"Its so fun and functional, what more do you want? Anything you can throw into a gym bag and the washing machine is a win!"
Spornette Teasing Brush
"It's got lots of bristles so you can tease your hair before you put it in a messy bun, which looks way more chic, has volume and stays put."
Oribe Texturizing Spray
"If you finish class at noon and are meeting someone for brunch at 12:15, there's no time to wash your hair. If I'm going out, I'll use this to add volume and a little sassiness before teasing."
Twistbands Hair Ties
"These are the scrunchie of the future. They don't crease or break your hair and they look cool worn on your wrist. I always have six or so with me."
Urban Decay Shadow Primer
"I use a shadow primer every day, even if I’m not wearing eye shadow. I like the look, it's more clean and natural--which is ironic."
Stila All-Day Liquid Liner
"It's like a marker, which is so much easier to put on than liquid liner. I’ve been wearing it in moss green lately--in the winter your eyes water so much, so I just put a little on the top lash to give a flash of color when I blink."
"You can go down a water slide in this stuff. Literally. It does not budge."
Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint
"It has a little bit more pigment than a traditional moisture-tint, but it still feels really sheer. You put it on like lotion, which I love, and it only enhances the orgasm effect post-workout."
Dr. Gross EZ4U Towelettes
"If I don’t even have time to shower, these are an easy one-step. I go straight to tinted moisturizer and go."
Zoya Nail Polish
"All of the Zoya polishes are amazing, but over the holidays I've been into this sparkly green color. It's called Holly."
