Following in the footsteps of The Real Housewives of Dallas and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City is going makeup-free for People magazine’s 2018 Beautiful Issue.
Ahead of the issue’s April 18 release, the magazine has shared a number of photos of the women of the Big Apple-based cast, including Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley, and LuAnn de Lesseps, all of whom bared their faces and exposed their natural beauty for the publication.
Speaking to People, Sonja said she feels the most beautiful when she’s well-rested after a “full night’s sleep and a toss in the hay.” She also gave a playful answer when asked about what she would be wearing if she could only have one beauty product.
“Toothpaste. Better to kiss you with,” she explained.
As for potential insecurities, Sonja said she doesn’t have many. That said, she is quite proactive about her looks and regularly visits a team of doctors to maintain a healthy, fresh-looking face.
“I am always running to Schweiger Dermatology to refresh with laser or Vampire facials,” she revealed. “I get my non-Surgical nose job from Dr. Kassir to lift my tip. And I like to visit Dr. Lorenc for whatever. Lucy Peters for Botox. But really I just like the people I work with and to always keep it very natural and gradual.”
According to Ramona, she feels confident without makeup because she’s done a great job taking care of her skin in recent years.
“I have great skin care products that I use morning and night, I eat healthily, drink plenty of water and get my eight hours. So maybe I’m blessed with good genes, but I’m very disciplined as well,” she explained.
In addition to her flawless skin, Ramona takes pride in her legs.
“I have finally embraced myself. I have flaws that I don’t love, just like any woman; I’m not perfect and I accept that,” she explained. “It’s more important for me to feel confident and to appreciate my sensuality. That confidence comes from within. I worked to get here!”
“Being makeup-free is the best feeling. I rarely wear make up in the Berkshires and I feel like it’s the real me!” Dorinda said of her natural look.
With age, Dorinda has admittedly given more attention to her skincare routine and named her Tom Ford bronzer as her favorite product of all.
“I’m definitely much more focused on my daily routine and what new products are out there. I also make sure to get a monthly facial and drink a ton of water!” she said.
When it comes to beauty, Carole knows it comes from the inside and said she feels her most beautiful when she’s laughing. She also said that sleep is the “ultimate beauty treatment” and keeps her skin feeling clean and plump.
As for how she stays looking young, Carole said she does facials and at-home masks, among other things.
“I also started facial micro-needling which is amazing,” she added.
Luann de Lesseps
When it comes to maintaining her youth, LuAnn said her beauty regimen is all about prevention and hydration.
“More facials, doing Yoga and getting enough rest,” she explained.
LuAnn then said that if she was allowed to wear just one beauty product, it would be lipstick.
The Real Housewives of New York City season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
