Stephanie “Stevie” Moore

Meet Stevie Moore — self-proclaimed champagne and kimono enthusiast, and shop girl (creative director) at the infamous Elements in Dallas. She’s that girl rocking the effortless (albeit red-haired) French-girl vibe; whose boyfriend’s in a band; and who doesn’t really need makeup, even though she wears it. And pay attention, because it’s likely as close as you’ll get to Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes lore. The two are virtually inseparable and met years ago at a party for Pamela Love at VOD —naturally. At just 25, Stevie’s got the Big D on a string.


I actually only wash my face in the shower, but when I do wash my face, I use a Clairsonic. I use By Terry makeup remover as soon as I get home or Burt’s Bees makeup remover wipes if I’m in a hurry or traveling. I try to remember to moisturize in the morning and at night, but I’m so forgetful! I have a couple different serums and eye creams that I rotate, but I’m not super product loyal. I’m actually pretty low maintenance in the beauty department — mostly just a BB Cream and chapstick kind of girl. I do like to treat myself to these Korean sheet masks that my friend Jane turned me on to; they are so relaxing, and I feel fresh and dewy after. My real skincare secret is this: I drink three liters of water and get eight hours of sleep every day.


I wake up at about 8 am usually and splash a little water on my face after brushing my teeth. Cody and I go for a walk and get coffee at Origin, and I try eat either Greek yogurt with fruit or avocado toast for breakfast, but most days I only have time for a juice.  I wear Dr. Jart’s Water Fuse SPF 25 BB Cream every day (another thing Jane turned me on to — she’s an infinite source of beauty wisdom!). If I remember to moisturize, it’s Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream or Egyptian Magic. A little Tarte Amazonian Clay Mascara, and I’m out the door.


Jessica Watts at Chad Rookstool Salon cuts my hair. She is the absolute best for long hair. I can’t recommend her highly enough! Every now and then, I treat myself to an organic facial at Spa Habitat in the West Village. I’m not super-picky about nail salons, but I typically bring my own polish — I like Chanel Black Satin.


I get a mani once a week, a pedi twice a month and a facial maybe four times a year. I’m not a big “treatment” girl. But I do love it when Jessica cuts my hair. She just does such a good job. She makes me feel like Joan Jett or Debbie Hairy. I guess I only see her about every six to nine months, but it’s always fun hanging out with her in the salon.


By Terry Cellularose Brightening Serum, Baum de RoseCellularose Brightening CC Lumi Serum (basically anything By Terry — I love the way their products smell), Malin + Goetz Lips Moisturizer and YSL Touche Eclat.


Just add a quick swipe of Stilla Color Balm Lipstick in Betsey and some By Terry Cellularose Blush Glace.

Favorite scent: Chanel No. 5


Fresh air, sunshine, 8 hours of sleep, lots of water and a diet rich in fresh veggies and healthy fats like nuts and avocados. Also let’s be real- just not being too fussy about the way you look. I love that French cool girl vibe- messy hair and not too much makeup. It’s really not the end of the world if you go to a party and you’re not the prettiest one there. You want to have more to offer to the world than just a pretty face.


Jelly Lips!! Another Soko Glam via Jane discovery. She gave me the Cotton Candy color for my birthday and I liked it so much I bought every other color!


Fairly strict vegetarian for almost 10 years now.

I do eat eggs and cheese but I would say an average day is a juice for breakfast, salad for lunch and roasted vegetable with quinoa for dinner.


Cody and I go for a 30 minute walk in the morning. I do a little yoga when I can and go for bike rides on the weekend. I am not a gym rat.


Did I say water yet? And love. I’m very lucky to have an amazing supportive, patient boyfriend who likes the way I look just the way I am.
