Roam Vintage founder Natasha Zoe Garrett has the sort of organic beauty that lends well to her brand—both as an expression of a pared-down, highly curated ethos, and as a model for her own second-hand finds. Her shop is home to small batches of vintage (dropped weekly), nature-inspired accessories, an in-house collection, and home goods sourced from small-scale, local artisans and craftsman. “My approach to beauty is super minimal,” says Garrett, who favors ample hydration and sleep over the masking effects of makeup. In keeping with her appreciation for careful selection, Garrett’s routine is appropriately essential, scaled down to what works for her and nothing more.
“I used to use creams and all of these different things, but my sister was an esthetician for awhile, and really recommended oils as a way to both cleanse and moisturize skin,” says Garrett. “Once I switched over to an oil-based routine, I noticed a big improvement in the overall appearance of my skin—how soft and moisturized it was—and the youthfulness of my skin.” Garrett relies on pure rosehip oil, bought in bulk from Wild Terra, located in Los Angeles’s Highland Park neighborhood; for those not local to L.A., Oleo Botanicals 100% Pure Organic Rosehip Seed Oil offers an accessible alternative. “When I started using that as a cleanser and a moisturizer, I noticed a big difference, and my skin has been pretty healthy and clean and clear ever since.” For an added boost, Garrett blends the natural oil with Moon Juice Plump Jelly, the addition acting as an ultra-hydrating conductor.
With a quick coat of Merit mascara, Garrett is ready for another day of vintage hunting, photographing, styling, and sharing. A reminder that keeping it simple can be the key to ensuring that any aesthetic—whether fashion, home, or beauty—endures.
