In The Bag: @breakfastatellies

For the past two years (and counting!), Ellie has been sharing her love for all things beauty on @breakfastatellies. Drawing from her experience caring for her oily, acne-prone skin, the New York City-based content creator uses her Instagram as a way to document her skin-care journey — and, not surprisingly, it’s resonated with others. It’s also a way for her to explore her passion for photography and videography. Check out our interview for more about Ellie’s daily self-care rituals, her beauty icon (hint: It’s the inspiration for her handle, too), and some of her go-to products for working at home.

Can you take us through your beauty bag?

My beauty bag is currently filled with a lot of work from home essentials, like lip balm, face mist and sheet masks. I of course have the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist since it’s so hydrating and is a great midday pick-me-up. I also have the Watermelon Glow Lip Pop since my lips get super dry and it makes me look a bit more put together for all my Zoom meetings.

Describe your daily beauty routine to us!

I use my beauty routine time each day to focus on myself – I try to focus only on my skin and routine and clear my mind of other thoughts. It’s a peaceful time for me, and while I’m at my vanity my rule is it’s all about the beauty.

Who would you say are your beauty icons?

My number one beauty icon will always be Audrey Hepburn – her style and look is classic, chic and timeless. I also love Selena Gomez’s beauty looks – her makeup artist Hung Vanngo is incredible.

What’s on your beauty routine playlist right now?

I am currently obsessed with every single song off of Dua Lipa’s new album. I especially love “Break My Heart” and “Love Again.” They are incredible pop songs that instantly put me in a good mood!

How has your beauty routine evolved through the years?

My routine has gotten longer over the years, but I think that’s because I actually understand all the steps and ingredients. I understand that steps like double-cleansing, SPF and essence are essential for my skin to stay healthy and glowy.
