Friday Fives: A Fashion Publicist's Must-Haves
Happy Friday, Influensters! We’re excited to introduce you to this week’s Friday Fives feature, Jordan Landes-Brenman. Jordan launched her personal fashion and style blog, Haute House Flower in October 2014, which serves as a streamlined platform to house all of her branding, on-air, styling, and collaborative fashion industry projects. In addition to running a personal style blog, Jordan founded a bicoastal fashion PR agency, Haute House PR & Marketing, in 2009. If you haven’t already stalked her fabulous Instagram or blog, we highly recommend you check it out! So how does this always on-the-go entrepreneur stay so polished? We asked Jordan five products she can’t live without to find out!
What’s Jordan’s top skin priority? Moisturizing! “This product is hands-down addicting. I have every flavor available, and stash one in my purse, my desk, my photographer's backpack (hehe), and my bedside table so I'm never without it. I apply it constantly to my lips with my fingertips, and use the excess on my cuticles, knees, and elbows, or anywhere else that needs a quick dose of moisture. The company as a whole just has my heart. Give me some bubble gum pink packaging, witty marketing quips and 90's references, and I'm sold. Did I mention the free stickers you get anytime you order something?!"
We wanted to know about Jordan’s nighttime routine, which evidently starts with a simple makeup removing towelette! “Girl, I would be lying if I acted like I didn't live off of these Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes! I detest washing my face. Every night before bed, I wipe my face with a towelette, which removes dirt and all traces of face and eye makeup, before applying my eye cream and face moisturizer of the moment. (Tip: For those of you that have eyelash extensions like me, these towelettes are a must-have so you don’t have to get your lashes wet. I simply close my eyes, and gently wipe the tops of the lashes from the lash line, outwards.)”
Brows are a trendy topic lately, and Jordan knows how to keep hers in check! “The Clear Brow Gel from Anastasia Beverly Hills, and really all of their brow products, are just divine. I apply the gel after I fill in my brows, and it helps tone them down to give a natural, but bold look. I love how the gel keeps my brows in place all day, I don't have to think about them once!”
Like many of us, Jordan has a go-to perfume she can’t live without. “When I have a day where I have something really important - a ton of editor meetings, a big photo shoot, brand collaboration, or just when I need some extra mojo, I apply Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel and feel immediately put together. Something about that bold, powdery, luxurious scent comforts me on an emotional level.”
And last but not least, Jordan revealed her secret weapon to fighting frizz. "I've been a Kerastase fan since college, and have been loving their newly revamped Elixir Ultime! Since relocating from CA to NYC this summer, I needed a way to fight the humidity, and this protects me for 24 hours! I work this into to the ends of my hair, which helps control frizz, and keeps my hair looking smooth and styled.”
