She knows there’s been a few celeb-backed beauty lines before her, but model Winnie Harlow is convinced her new CAY SKIN will be the line that delivers the most hydrating sunscreen everyone will want to wear—no exceptions. “My goal is that you’ll feel so confident, you’ll want to show more skin.”


Confidence Boost

“Growing up with vitiligo has made me serious about caring for my skin, and I feel most confident when it’s glowing and healthy. I want everyone under the sun to feel the same way. People of all skin tones, body types, freckles and beauty marks should feel good about showing more skin and embracing their uniqueness.”

Dream Weaver

“I love body products that feel decadent and nourishing and keep skin looking healthy; I would love to make something like that down the line. My goal is to develop a product that makes it easy for people to reapply SPF throughout the day, so that our skin is always protected, but for now, I think this is a good start.”

Holy Grails

“I am obsessed with our Isle Glow Lip Balm ($14), which has SPF 30. I am constantly using lip balm throughout the day, and this one lasts a long time and has sun protection. I rarely wear lipstick, so I like to wear this by itself or with Charlotte Tilbury lip liner ($24) when I’m doing light glam. My other go-to product isn’t technically for beauty: I use Visine Eye Drops ($5) to calm my skin when it’s a little red and irritated. It’s an amazing hack and it works every time!”

I grew up with a skin condition—and that makes me serious about making a line that helps you feel comfortable in your skin.

Scent Trail

“I love experimenting with different fragrances. I recently discovered Tom Ford’s Santal Blush ($270), which is sexy and alluring. I am always on YouTube looking at tutorials and learning new tricks, and I use Paula’s Choice toner ($22), after finding it in a YouTube rabbit hole. My best friend and I also really love the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream ($100)—it is exactly that. Pure magic. At night, recently, I’ve been using the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil ($105).”

Shoot List

“For whatever reason, on a lot of the shoots I’ve worked on this year, makeup artists have been using the Makeup by Mario Master Mattes Eyeshadow Palette ($48). It is perfect for a smoky eye or for creating more natural looks. Now, I don’t travel without it! For hair, my hairstylist, Davontae, recommended my absolute favorite wig, which is by Missy’s Hair Boutique. It’s actually the long, curly wig that I wore in the CAY SKIN campaign. I love it.”
