Pretty City

Audrey Cochran

BY Kathleen Jennings and Francine Ballard // 09.24.14

River Oaks blondes are a dime a dozen, but how many have their CPA? Clearly Audrey Cochran has put her smarts to good use where her beauty regimen is concerned. Houston beauty guru Kathleen Jennings (of Beauty Now) puts the tough questions to fellow gorgeous gal around town and mother of one, Cochran.audrey-cochran-pretty-city

SKIN LIKE YOURS DOESN’T JUST HAPPEN. TELL US ABOUT YOUR SUPPORT STAFF?

I’m 35, but I’ve never done Botox. I have used a retinol for years (SkinMedica Tri-Retinol Complex ES), and I go to Hillary at Glow Medical Aesthetics once a month for FotoFacial treatments.

 MORNING RITUAL?

After my Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture for Sensitive Skin soaks in, I apply Elta MD UV Physical Broad-Spectrum SPF 41. It has a tint that gives a bit of coverage and glow. I use Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer and swipe YSL Touche Eclat under my eyes to cover up dark circles.

DO YOU HAVE AN EVENING ‘LOOK’?

I love the look of liquid liner for nighttime—I use Loreal Telescopic Liquid Eyeliner in Carbon Black. My trick is to first line your top lid with a pencil liner to make sure your line is straight, and then trace over the pencil liner with the liquid.

ADVICE ON BREAKING OUT OF A BEAUTY RUT.

Bold lips. I just got back from New York Fashion Week and I wore a bright orange or dark red lip every day. I alternated between Tom Ford Wild Ginger and Chanel Pirate. But my husband is not a fan of the statement lip! No straight men are.

MANE-TAME. TELL US ABOUT YOUR LUSTROUS LOCKS.

I have not varied my hair routine in years. I swear by Kerastase Nutritive Bain Satin Shampoo and Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense Nourishing Treatment for Thick Hair.  After I shampoo, I towel dry my hair, flip my hair upside down, and apply a generous amount of the conditioning mask to the bottom third and comb through. Then I put my hair in a bun and let the conditioner sit for 2-3 minutes while I’m finishing my shower. After I get out, I spray It’s a 10 Miracle Leave in Product and once my hair is dry, I flip my hair over and spritz a little Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine Repairing Shine Mist on the ends. I wasn’t sure it made a difference, but the first time I wore it a friend immediately commented that my hair looked shinier.audrey-cochran-pretty-city

AND WHEN IN DOUBT, DO LIKE LYNN WYATT DOES.

My favorites fragrances are Chanel Bel Respiro for day and Chanel Coromandel for evening. I read somewhere that Lynn Wyatt wears Coromandel, so that is definitely part of its appeal!

IN THE (MAKEUP) BAG?

Laura Mercier Brow Definer, Dior Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum and mascara, YSL Cream De Blush in Baby Doll on the apples of my cheeks, but no bronzer—I think the muddiness makes one look older.
