At 63, Jennifer Grey says she feels like she’s in her prime. “We are so youth obsessed, but it’s nice to know a woman’s second half of life is 100 percent her best.” For her everyday effortless look, the Dirty Dancing star keeps it simple with a finely curated all-star lineup.

Cult Favorite

“The only thing I’m consistently obsessed with is Biologique Recherche. The Lotion P50 1970, I’ve been into it for years and always have it. I am always looking for where to invest and if it’s worth it. Like, is cleanser essential? Can you just use Cetaphil? Sometimes, I think over-cleansing my face is not the best because I’m not young; I don’t have too much oil. Even though it’s brown and has a strong scent, I also like the Biologique Masque Vivant. I do it because I think it might work. I also love their Crème Masque Vernix.”

Double Duty

“I really love Bobbi Brown’s Jones Road Miracle Balm ($38) in Dusty Rose. You know that’s kind of nice. I like anything that helps you skip a step, like Dr. Dennis Gross’ tinted sunblock ($42). There’s so much stuff out there, I’m always looking for the products that are worth the money.”

Glam Connections

“I just discovered this Chanel foundation yesterday: The Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint ($70). It’s super sheer and glowy. I was at lunch with my friend, a stylist named Sarah Clary. Jenna Lyons is her best friend. Jenna told her she had to get this, so we went to the Chanel store. She said, ‘Jenna said this is amazing!’ And while I don’t need any more makeup, I got it and I love it.”

Hair Goals

“During the pandemic, Tracey Cunningham was doing my color in her backyard, and I thought, ‘What happened to my hair?’ It was thinning. You hear about men doing stuff when they’re balding, but you don’t hear about women. She told me about Lars Skjoth and Harklinikken’s clean and holistic products. My hair was thicker and healthier in just a few months.”


Liner Notes

“I like the Anastasia eyebrow pencil ($18) for my eyebrows and around my lips. And then I like Buxom Gloss ($25) in White Russian because I don’t have big lips, but I would never wear a dark lip. I just like to enhance what I already have.”

Purple Reign

“I wear the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick ($32) in plum because I have greenish eyes, so I just blend it around my lid. I also started using this Hourglass eyeliner recently for a little smoky eye.”
