Ansel Elgort uses girlfriend’s glitter face masks to keep skin clear


Ansel Elgort gets advice on the best products for his skin from his girlfriend Violetta Komyshan.

The Baby Driver actor not only takes care of his complexion for his film roles, but also his modelling gigs, as he was named as the face of Ralph Lauren’s Polo Red Rush cologne in July (18).

While Ansel tends to stick to using a simple cleanser and moisturiser, he has now shared that he isn’t afraid to check out some of ballerina Violetta’s buys and even let her apply one of GlamGlow’s glitter masks to his face recently.

“Most of the products I try come from Violetta,” he told Allure. “She’s constantly giving me new things to try.”

Ansel went on to explain that he always applies sunscreen when he’s going outdoors. However, he admitted that he knew very little about the basics of skincare before he met with make-up artists on the set of 2013 horror film Carrie.

“The make-up team said to me, ‘Your skin is so dry – you know you can moisturise,'” the 24-year-old said.

Previously, Ansel shared he often borrows items from his high school sweetheart Violetta’s wardrobe, including her handbags. And in addition to taking inspiration from his girlfriend’s closet, he explained he also greatly admires the sartorial choices made by members of South Korean boy band BTS.

“I love how fearlessly they are styled… I love the make-up they wear and their hairstyles – it’s cool and different,” he commented, adding that the stars’ outfits are much more “out there” than the garments worn by American celebrities.
