A Celeb Makeup Artist On Where She Gets Pampered with A-List Pals

Summer is almost here, which means we’ll all soon be hit with some major vacay FOMO after seeing everyone else’s getaway ‘grams. Whether you’re planning a hot weather adventure or daydreaming about your next vacation, perhaps this next tip from a celebrity makeup artist will remind you to pencil in a beauty stop on your itinerary.

We recently sat down with Molly R. Stern — who regularly beautifies the faces of A-listers like Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts, Robin Wright, and more leading ladies — to find out her new favorite R&R sanctuary in dreamy New Zealand and more. Read on below for her travel recs, then share your favorite beauty shops and spas around the world (or even in your own nabe) below!

What a view. Already plotting for my return. #NewZealand #NoFilter #LOVEyourself #LOVEmrs

I have recently discovered the ARO HĀ Wellness Retreat in New Zealand. This is the type of beauty destination that feeds you inside and out, and you leave more radiant that you could ever imagine.

Another beauty favorite is the Beauty Mart store at Topshop on Oxford Circus [in London]. Great finds from luxury to mass-curated to perfection.
