Gym-Bag Beauty Essentials from Simone

A Day in the Life: “My philosophy is simple: Make working out and eating well a lifestyle choice, not a chore. Find the balance and make it joyous along the way.”

Beauty Philosophy: “I always have concealer and mascara on, but I don’t like to wear foundation when I’m working out — I prefer to keep my skin clean. But, when I head out in the evenings, I like to go all-out — my days spent on the stage [as a dancer] are still with me!”

Pre-Workout Essentials: “I start with my first client at 7 a.m., so I literally have to paint my eyes open! I wear YSL Touche Éclat to cover the bags under my eyes, and my favorite mascara is Lancôme Hypnôse Drama, which creates the illusion of false lashes. I actually love wearing lip gloss — my go-to is MAC in Big Kiss. I like the hair ties from Emi-Jay, because they’re so colorful and don’t rip out your hair when you take them [out].”

Post-Workout Essentials: “A client of mine introduced me to Frédéric Malle Carnal Flower, and it smells divine — I love to apply it after showering. I always put on Paula’s Choice Daily Moisturizer with SPF to protect my skin against the sun, especially now that I’m spending more time in L.A. And, I can’t live without Klorane dry shampoo. I use Kiehl’s Deluxe Hand & Body Lotion all over my body, including my hands and feet, every time I work out.”

Kiehl’s Deluxe Hand & Body Lotion with Aloe Vera & Oatmeal, $22, available at Nordstrom; Paula’s Choice Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25, $29, available at Paula’s Choice; Frédéric Malle Carnal Flower, $250, available at Barneys New York; Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara, $27.50, available at Sephora; Emi-Jay Pearl Hair Ties, $6.50, available at Nordstrom; MAC Plushglass in Big Kiss, $20, available at MAC.
