WATCH Magazine: August 2022: Summer Of Love


Irresistible What Laya DeLeon Hayes of The Equalizer lives for

FAVORITE STORE: The top level of the Marc Jacobs store in N.Y. They sell one of my favorite collec- tions, Heaven by Marc Jacobs. GO-TO WORKOUT: I love running about two miles a day, and exer- cises targeting my legs and abs.

HIDDEN HOBBY: I like to paint. It brings me ease and tranquility. I can put on my favorite album and just be with myself. GO-TO NAIL POLISH COLOR: I love green, especially sage green and evergreen. LEADING LIP COLOR: Usually I like a nude lip with a dark brown lip liner. For summer, I love coral. It brightens my face and brings out my natural undertones.

SIGNATURE STYLE: My style is constantly changing since I’m young and still trying to figure it out, but I get a lot of inspira- tion from past eras like the ’60s, ’70s, and ’90s. I love a mix of classic and timeless pieces with streetwear and modern clothing. I wear what I feel confident in. FAVORITE DESIGNER: I couldn’t pick just one, but I like fun pieces that feel youthful and chic. I get a lot of inspiration from Vivienne Westwood because of her creative silhouettes and timeless pieces, and Virgil Abloh, who merged streetwear with high-end fashion. MOST BELOVED BEAUTY PROD- UCT: Mario Badescu Flower & Tonic Mask to wear weekly. It makes me feel refreshed and, as someone who had teenage acne, it’s helped my skin tremendously. EVERYDAY BAG: For casual days, I love a tote bag, because I can fit everything in and it’s easygoing. When I want to spice up my out- fit, it’s my Christian Dior saddle mini bag, because it’s the perfect size and my dream bag. MAKEUP ITEM THAT’S ALWAYS IN YOUR BAG: Eyeliner and mascara. It enhances my favorite part of my face—my eyes—and makes me feel good about myself. SIGNATURE SCENT: A sweet scent, whether rose or vanilla. My favor- ite is Nolita by Bond No. 9.

JEWELRY: My Mejuri gold hoops with my diamond L necklace.

THE EQUALIZER airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and streams on Paramount+

BIGGEST INDULGENCE? I love sweets and binge-watching junk TV, which is my guilty pleasure.

SKIN-CARE REGIMEN: Mostly Mario Badescu products: Orange Cleans-

ing Soap; Cucumber Cleansing Lotion for

my toner (it has saved my skin); Vitamin C Serum, which gives my skin the perfect glow; Caffeine Eye Cream, especially when I’m tired; Hyal- uronic Dew Cream mixed with First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. Face masks and facials every month!

FAVORITE HOTSPOT: Aroma Coffee & Tea in L.A.—especially the cake. COLOR YOU LOVE TO WEAR: Green, and also white, orange, and red. Occasionally some pinks and pastels. HEELS, PLATFORMS, OR FLATS? Platforms, whether sneakers or heels. I need more height. /
