In a candid conversation with Harper’s Bazaar US, Devyn Garcia shares her unique perspective on beauty and self-expression. Garcia, who has been making waves in the fashion industry, emphasizes the importance of authenticity and staying grounded amidst the glamour and glitz.
Garcia’s beauty philosophy is rooted in simplicity and naturalness. She admires her mother’s use of natural oils and her father’s affinity for woody and beachy scents. Her grandmother, a former aesthetician, has also influenced her beauty regimen. Garcia’s skincare routine is minimalistic, focusing on cleansing, moisturizing, and occasional use of vitamin C serum and sunscreen. She also practices face exercises taught by her mother to maintain skin elasticity.
Garcia’s approach to modeling is equally grounded. She prepares for runway shows with a routine of jasmine milk tea, stretching, and self-affirmations. Despite the high-pressure environment, she reminds herself to stay present and authentic. “I’ve done shoots where they did no makeup and those are my favorites, when it’s just you, raw – the person rather than the mannequin“, she said.
Garcia also opens up about her personal life, revealing her love for simple outfits like jeans, tank tops, and sneakers, and her appreciation for quiet moments and natural beauty. She mentions the joy of meeting her partner in Paris and the tranquility she finds in places like Domino Park in New York.
Garcia’s perspective serves as a refreshing reminder of the importance of authenticity and self-love in an industry often criticized for its superficiality. “We all started as babies and we all die, and nothing comes with us when we pass”, she reflects, emphasizing the shared humanity that transcends the glamour of the modeling world.
