Very few moments in the day are as bare as the moment you wake up. We each have our own kinks and quirks that help us get out of bed, but few of us are brave enough to share them with the world. Introducing A Cool Morning, a deep dive into the intimate daytime rituals of our coolest friends and beauty innovators.
To say Anna Moon is a beauty obsessive would be an understatement. Before getting her record deal, the singer previously was a professional makeup artist, getting her degree in esthetics just one week before being signed, making it safe to say that the “Tightrope” singer is one of the most well-versed talents in both beauty, and music. So, how does the music industry’s biggest beauty fanatic pamper herself when she gets the time? Through her daily affirmations, a cup of coffee, and honey (but not where you’d think). Below, we take a deep dive into Moon’s essential morning beauty routine.
What’s the first thing you do every morning?
Check my phone.. a habit I’m trying to break!
Do you have a morning workout routine?
I love to start my day off with a 30-minute workout using The Mirror.
Shower at night, morning, or both?
I usually shower at night! Unless it’s a hair wash day then I will shower in the morning.
Daily alarm time? How many times do you hit snooze?
I have my alarm set to 8:30 a.m, but I usually wake up around 8 a.m.
If you’re running late, what’s the one thing you have to do?
I have to put on my ISDIN sunscreen. Sun protection is the most important step of my beauty routine!
I’m currently intermittent fasting so I don’t eat breakfast.
Weirdest morning beauty habit?
I’m not sure I have anything super weird, unconventional maybe. For example, sometimes if my skin is acting up I go into my pantry and grab some honey. You can apply a thin layer all over your skin for boosted hydration and it’s a great natural anti-septic!
What does your morning hair-care routine look like?
I use mostly Kérastase products. I especially love their L’incroyable Blow-Dry Creme!
How much time do you spend on your skincare routine?
Given that I got my license in esthetics before getting signed to a record label, I take skincare very seriously. Luckily, however, by exclusively using one line — Skinbetter Science — my routine is super quick!
How long do you usually take to get ready for the day?
It depends on the day. I pride myself in being able to do a full glam in 10 minutes, but I’d of course prefer 30!
What’s the one product you could never leave the house without putting on?
I love perfume! Currently, you won’t catch me anywhere without my Tom Ford “Lost Cherry” on.
The first word/thing that popped into your head this morning?
I’ve recently begun picking a word when I wake up to guide me throughout the day, today that word is “focus.”
Your favorite morning read?
I love reading and replying to my fans!
What’s on your nightstand right now?
A bouquet of Venus Et Fleur roses, and my HydroFlask.
What’s the current ringtone on your alarm?
I have different alert sounds, but for my morning alarm I use Helios.
Coffee, tea, or go-to morning drink?
Coffee for sure!
What’s the last thing you did before you headed out the door today?
Kissed my hubby and pup goodbye.
