Storm Reid Shares The Secret Behind Her Glowing Skin Beauty Routine

For the young starlet, her go-to beauty routine is about enhancing versus covering up.

Beauty & Fashion

Storm Reid has been living up to her name and taking the world by storm with her acting. From A Wrinkle in Time to Euphoria, we have witnessed the evolution of the actress as she continues to grow and expand her brand in Hollywood. The 18-year-old star recently shared her beauty secrets with Vogue and gave a step-by-step tutorial on how she achieves what she calls her “makeup no-makeup look.”

Like most teenagers, Storm deals with breakouts but tries not to let them get her down. “When I’m on set my skin gets congested and I’m more prone to breakouts,” she said. “I’ve had to learn over the years that a breakout doesn’t define you. Yes, they’re annoying and yes, we wish we didn’t get them, but they're normal.”

Storm Reid's Glowing Skincare Routine


For her skincare routine, she uses Tatcha The Rice Wash cleanser and Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream to moisturize. She also applies 2-3 drops of Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Hyaluronic Serum.

While the Atlanta-born actress enjoys going to social media to find recommended beauty products, she’s also experienced a downside to that. “I am always on TikTok. I am always on social media following the latest beauty trends and beauty influencers and trying to find new products,” she said. “But that got me in trouble because I think I was trying so many things that my skin didn’t know what to get used to so I was breaking out.”

She added, “So I have kinda scaled back.”


Storm loves to have glowy skin and says that it’s one of the best compliments she can receive. To achieve glowy skin, she uses Dr. Barbara Sturm Glow Drops. Then on to sunscreen. Her go-to is Supergoop! Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++ and she credits her mom for including sunscreen in her skincare.


“My mom has the most gorgeous skin ever and she looks like she’s 25,” she said. “So when she tells me to do something with my skin, I’m listening because I hope I look like her when I have two kids that are basically very grown.”

Before moving on to makeup, The Invisible Man star also praised the benefits of water and how it can affect your skin. “Drinking water will do your skin wonders. Water helps internal and external.”

Storm Reid's Everyday Makeup 'No Makeup' Look


Storm starts off brushing her eyebrows with Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil and then she applies foundation from Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Perfector 4-In-1 Whipped Matte Makeup with a wet Beauty Blender.


Then she adds Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Concealer and follows it up with Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick. Instead of putting the blush directly on her cheeks, she likes to stroke the blush stick in an upward direction.


Throughout her career, she has worked with many people who have taught her about beauty. “When I was shooting A Wrinkle in Time, our makeup head, I think she really helped me with the journey of understanding that makeup is to enhance rather than to cover up. Makeup is supposed to be used to make you feel good.”

She doesn’t like to contour too much, but she does love a good bronzer. Huda Beauty GloWish Soft Radiance Bronzing Powder is her go-to.


Storm keeps her makeup pretty simple on and off-screen even in HBO’s Euphoria where many of the character’s makeup looks have become the star of the show.

“On Euphoria, obviously we have amazing incredible makeup looks. I think we kinda changed the landscape with how makeup was viewed on TV shows,” she claimed.

“My character specifically hasn’t had her makeup moment yet, I don’t think she’s going to enter season three, episode one with a whole bunch of glitter. I think we’re gonna have to take some time to get there, so it’ll be interesting to see the makeup journey of [my character] Gia.”


As she continues putting on her face, she attempts a winged eyeliner and adds Maybelline The Colossal Curl Bounce mascara. She even added more concealer.

She kept her lips simple by using her Maybelline eyebrow pencil as a lip liner and instead of using regular lip balm, the actress uses Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in vanilla.

All About Edging: The Ways Prolonging Pleasure Makes For Mind-Blowing Orgasms

Have you ever tried to stop yourself from having an orgasm…on purpose? I have and let me be the first to tell you how amazing of an experience it is. Edging is the practice of bringing yourself to the brink of orgasm without going all the way. Tension builds, pushing your mental and physical body to its edge—literally— delaying full gratification. I was introduced to edging by a past lover, who got a kick out of increasing my arousal without letting me orgasm. The buildup would literally make me feel like I was going to burst.

20 Journal Prompts For Entrepreneurs To Reflect, Learn, And Thrive

Many have touted the benefits of journaling, especially when it comes to one's mental health. I've always been one to keep a diary, but in recent years, journaling has become quite challenging for me. Nowadays, I feel like my thoughts are moving way faster than my hands can write, which frustrates me to the point of not even bothering to write them down. (And I'm not a fan of putting my personal business online or on my phone via an app. I'm one of those people who fears that there's always somebody who either has access or can gain access and the possibility is just too creepy and scary for me to even attempt to use any digital form of a journal—cybersecurity be damned.)
