Harper’s Bazaar: Phoebe Tonkin – Morning Glory

So that’s how she looks this good.

They say how you spend the moments immediately after waking colours your entire day, so with the intention to improve our morning routines – and with it every facet of our jam-packed and often not-so-serene lives – we’ll be sharing the AM habits of women who combine style with success.

Today’s Morning Glory belongs to Vampire Diaries star and current face/muse of Matteau Swim Phoebe Tonkin. Here the US-based style siren shares how she gets going in the morning – no detail spared.

Over to you, Phoebe:

“I try to be up before 8am. I drink half a litre of water and make a latte with hemp milk. I toast an english muffin or warm up brown rice and avocado which is a weird breakfast I eat a lot and is really delicious. If I am feeling particularly fancy I will throw on the news, otherwise I train over Skype with Mary Helen Bowers at Ballet Beautiful. I try to put on a leotard but I normally work out in pyjama bottoms and a tank top. At 10am I run a bath with epsom salts and a scoop of coconut oil, play some music on my computer (probably Alt-J or Radiohead) and catch up on texts and emails. By 10:45am I have done all my favourite things already so I start bothering other cast mates or friends to see a midday movie or have lunch with me. I work almost every day so if I have a free day I get over-excited and try to cram in as many activities as possible.

I wake up and wash with IS Clinical cleanser, then I use a Chanel moisturiser, and add an oil free sunscreen (Control Corrective Aroma Matte Day Cream SPF 30). I also use Glossier Balm Dotcom. At night I wash with the same IS Clinical cleanser, wash my make up off with Chanel makeup remover, and then use either Shani Darden’s Retinol Reform or IS Clinical Active Serum. I alternate between the two each night. I use a Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask once a week with the Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil underneath. Sometimes I sleep (pass out) in it and your skin is glowing the next day.

I try to walk a lot if I am in NYC. I am not a fan of anything too loud or too aggressive, so cycle classes and gyms are out for me. In LA I train at Ballet Bodies with Andie who uses a reformer machine and I can barely walk afterwards. If I am walking around I always have Spotify on my phone. Lately I have been into Cigarettes after Sex and Daughter, but sometimes when I really want to go for it I will listen to Eminem.

I don’t like normal breakfast foods. I definitely can’t sustain on just a smoothie or what not. I eat weird food for breakfast all the time, like leftover quinoa or brown rice and I will add fresh olive oil and sunflower seeds and avocado. I will even eat hummus on toast, anything savory and filling. Sometimes I like eggs, but egg whites freak me out so I like them scrambled and golden. But my favourite breakfast is definitely a brown rice bowl with lots of extra toppings.

When I am in Atlanta working, I tend to wear a lot of skinny black jeans and ballet flats (or ugg boots, in winter, I am not even guilty about that – they are just so comfortable, especially when you are shooting in the woods at 3am) with oversized V-necks and tees. But when I am not working, I try to look a little more polished. I love the Ellery blazer I’ve have for about five years and I live in Frame cut-offs and jeans. I like to wear a lot of black, it makes my life a lot easier, especially when I have to travel. And I have a couple of Chanel bags that make any outfit look French and cute. I love Isabel Marant for dresses and Christopher Esber for something a little more dressed up. And obviously Matteau when I am at the beach (although their high waisted briefs have come in handy a few times when I have wanted to wear something sheer).

If I am working I could leave work any time between 4:50am and 11pm. Sometimes my call time could be midnight. I always drive myself to work, and I usually listen to Spotify or a TED talk, or talk to friends (mainly Ilona) and my mum on Bluetooth. Sometimes I listen to my US accent tapes. And sometimes I just blast R.E.M and sing my heart out.”
