What are the Trumps’ beauty routines? Donald fusses over washing his ‘beautiful hair’ while Melania had her own glam room in the White House
Living in the White House for four years means spending a lot of time under close scrutiny. Former first lady Melania, and former first daughters Ivanka and Tiffany, follow a strict protocol when it comes to their signature looks, but Donald and his son Barron have interesting grooming regimes too.
Ivanka’s blush brush trick
Ivanka has revealed how she drinks water with lemon daily to stay hydrated and doesn’t wear nail polish because she chips it so easily. When she was a teenager, her mother Ivana even woke her up in the middle of the night once to insist that she remove her make-up.
Perhaps she can pass the tip on to her father.

Melania’s White House glam room
When it comes to make-up, she likes to incorporate topical skin care products with vitamins A, C and E into her routine, avoid too much sun exposure and stay moisturised. Melania’s make-up artist, Nicole Bryl, told W Magazine that each session takes about 75 minutes of “uninterrupted focus”.
Melania’s so serious about having a space to focus on doing make-up that she installed her own glam room in the White House with “the most perfect lighting scenario”. It’s apparently all part of her plan to maintain a youthful look while avoiding injectables or cosmetic surgery.
Barron’s caviar baths
When it comes to his skin care, Melania told the New York Daily News that she slathers her son Barron’s entire body in caviar, which is packed with vitamins, protein, and omega 3. In 2013, she started promoting her own skin care line including such products, but her anti-ageing Caviar Complexe C6 never made it to market.
Tiffany’s heavy glam
In a video interview with project organiser Scott Nathan, Tiffany explained that she went barefaced in front of the camera for 30 minutes to encourage participants to not think about their looks so much and not focus on being judged. Her appearance in the project was in stark contrast to her signature fully made-up face, which has been the subject of tutorials for make-up influencers and usually includes heavy winged eyeliner and lipstick that draws attention to her full lips.
