Milan’s Chicest Photographer’s
6 Steps for Glowing Skin

If you’ve ever glimpsed street-style photographer and blogger Tamu Mcpherson snapping away amid the throngs of models and sparkly spectators outside of fashion week hubs, like MILK Studios in Manhattan or the charmingly cobblestoned Place Dauphine in Paris, you’ve probably clocked her epic style. Her outfits are enchanting medleys of filmy blouses, wild patterns, bold shapes, and some incredible staples from favorite designers like Celine, Rosie Assoulin, and Prada. As the founder of the fashion, beauty, and wellness blog All the Pretty Birds, Mcpherson, who’s based in Milan, travels pretty much constantly; the number of glamorous places she jets to in a given month is dizzying, and her Instagram is fantastic fodder for planning your dream vacation.

Despite her peripatetic lifestyle, Mcpherson’s flawless, glowy skin is often even more spectacular than what she’s wearing. She says the secret is a few fantastic clean skin-care essentials that she takes with her and uses on trains, on planes, and in automobiles all over the world. “I’ve been on the road Monday through Wednesday for the past three weeks,” Mcpherson says happily. “If I use my products consistently, they keep my skin fresh and healthy and help me maintain sanity and serenity.”
