RaVaughn’s Summer Rules

Angel Lenise 08.20.13 Noted

RaVaughn’s voice isn’t the only thing that’s golden. Her skin is, too.  Our new “Best Friend” shared her ultimate summer beauty secret—a now-defunct beauty line—but it didn’t stop there. We got the scoop on what Compound Entertainment’s leading lady leans in to, from her favorite summer memory to the soundtrack that keeps her going when she’s on the road. Here’s to RaVaughn’s best-of rider… and the margarita mayhem that comes with it.

Summer beauty bag:

It’s a Vaseline line and it’s called Healthy Glow. They cancelled it… It’s the best thing and I was so disappointed when I found out they were canceling it that I bought it in masses. I have a lifetime supply of it. It helps with the tan… so when the sun hits it, it helps you to tan a little more. It’s like a soft lotion and I have eczema so I can’t use all kinds of products. Hopefully, Vaseline, if you’re listening, you’ll bring it back out.

I’m addicted to Carmex. I use it all the time, [not just in the summer].

For my hair, I sweat really bad in my head. I use an edge control on my hair to weigh it down so if I do start sweating it doesn’t frizz up on me.

Summer lipstick:

I’ve never worn Ruby Woo and I’ve never been like a really colored-lipstick [girl], but I’ve been kind of getting into that and I’m loving Ruby Woo right now.

Summer scent:

I love Kiehl’s Musk. That’s my favorite scent. I get a million compliments on it. And it’s [unisex], men and women can wear it.

Summer style:

I have a pair of shorts. They’re my favorite shorts; they’re actually on my Instagram a couple of times. They’re really ripped up, distressed, old jeans. And just any kind of loose blousy T-shirt. I love Jordans. I’m always in Jordans or sandals. And my glasses. I’m getting a lot of compliments on these glasses. They’re tortoise shell. And these are my summer glasses that I just throw on; I don’t have to wear makeup. Just hide behind the glasses and keep it going.

Summer bucket list:

I definitely want to go to Bora Bora. I’ve never been there. I love the way it looks, I just feel like it’s going to be the most relaxing thing ever. I’ve been to Cancún but I definitely want to go back. Where else do I want to go? The Maldives.

Summer reads:

Magazines that I’ve been reading, that I always have with me, [are] Ebony and Essence. I like hair magazines, getting ideas for my hair. I’m actually reading The 48 Laws of Power right now.

Summer memories:

I haven’t gotten this question ever! I took a family vacation when I was 17 to Cancun and that was the first time I went and we did jet skiing and all that; laid out. We were out with my family and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. We stayed in a resort. We had our own condo and they had like seven different pools, and it was the first time that I had ever seen a pool connected to the bar and you could actually sit in the pool… I thought that was the coolest thing ever.

Summer cocktail:

I’m a margarita girl all the way.

Summer soundtrack:

Of course, besides my own [laughs]. I love Justin Timberlake’s “Pusher Love Girl.” And then Kendrick [Lamar’s “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe”]. And “Power Trip” [J. Cole featuring Miguel].
