The world is still not done being fascinated with Michelle Phan. In addition to scoring a spot on Forbes's coveted 30 Under 30 list, the 27-year-old Cali-based beauty vlogging millionaire was recently paid a visit by The Coveteur to discuss fashion and all things cosmetics.
In addition to showcasing her expectedly enviable closet filled with designers like Jean Paul Gaultier, Rick Owens, Proenza Schouler, and Céline, Phan revealed her surprisingly down-to-earth, pretty much edible beauty mainstays. "I love using cleansing oils instead of facial soaps or harsh chemical soaps," she explains. "My favorite is an Extra Virgin Olive Oil called McEvoy Ranch. You can literally use it from the bottle to clean and remove your makeup." She adds that she loves a honey mask, too: "Not only will it help lighten the skin, but it also has healing properties. My favorite honey to use is Manuka Honey."
