Have you ever wondered about Lily’s routine? Yes? No? Harper’s Bazaar recently spent a day with Lily and on their newest publication, they reveal what she is up to at a certain time of the day. A very interesting article, that helps us get to know Lily even more than we already know, and you can read it bellow!
8:00 A.M. I usually wake up at 8, but I’m shooting a show now and some of my call times have been 5 or 5:30, so I’ve had to try to become a morning person. I like setting an upbeat song as my alarm, but I have to constantly change it so I don’t start hating it. Right now I like the Chainsmokers, Drake, and Banks—I went to high school with her! I check social media to see what my friends around the world have been up to. Instagram is my main thing; it’s where I’ve had such a huge interaction with young girls, which really inspired me to write my book, Unfiltered. And then I have to read every e-mail in my in-box. I can’t leave anything unopened. That number next to the mail icon is very unsettling to me. It has to be zero.
8:10 A.M. I’m normally still half asleep when I get out of bed, so I immediately splash cold water on my face. I’ve learned a lot of my morning routine from working with Lancôme. I really like their Énergie de Vie products—the cleanser, the serum, and the cream. If I’m going straight to hair and makeup, I don’t spend at lot of time getting ready, but even when I’m not working I’m pretty basic. I just try to enhance what’s already there. I always feel like the less there is on my face, the less there is to go wrong. I’ll put on a light foundation with a little bit of blush—I don’t wear bronzer—and lip balm, with maybe a dab of nude Lancôme lipstick or concealer. I let my hair do whatever it wants, especially since I usually have it all done up or wear a wig for the show. I’ve learned a lot of tricks over the years, but I tend to save them for a night out or an audition.
8:30 A.M. I’ll go into my kitchen and have a glass of water with lemon to kick-start my system, and make oatmeal in a pot and have it with fruit.That really energizes me and fills me up. While the oatmeal starts to cook and do its thing, I get dressed. If I’m working and it’s super early, I don’t care what I’m wearing, so I’ll throw on jeans or sweatpants before getting in my Range Rover and driving to the set. Otherwise I’m going to work out and I’ll wear clothes that I want to sweat in. I’m not going to dress up to go to the gym.
