Beau Dunn is an artist, model, philanthropist, and entrepreneur. Inspired by “childhood innocence, materialism, and consumerism,” her artwork has been exhibited around the world, and is known for its signature vibrant color palettes. Her sculptures, neons, and photography are so coveted, they can be found hanging in the homes of mega-stars like Kylie Jenner, Lily Collins, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rebel Wilson and Claudia Schiffer. Beyond her art, Beau founded a company based on her love of travel: Jetsett.com, a digital destination that shares once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences and must-haves, along with one-of-a-kind itineraries. We asked this artist and entrepreneur to break down a typical evening in her life—she shares her movie and beauty-filled nightly routine below.
5:00 P.M. I’m usually getting back to the house from my art studio, office, or physical therapy at Elite Orthosport. I recently had knee surgery, so my routine has been a lot different these past couple of months. I love coming home to my two French bulldog babies French and Finn. I shower them with love and attention and make sure they are fed and happy.
6:30 P.M. My husband James and I love spending quality time with friends! Two that come over on a weekly basis are our friends Lily and Johnny. Our weekly Monday night tradition is to hang in for the night, have dinner together and watch TV or a movie.
6:45 P.M. With my surgery, Postmates is life and usually arrives around this time! La Scala in Beverly Hills is our go-to and a family tradition. I always get the chicken chopped salad – add tomatoes and cucumber – extra dressing on the side is an absolute must. 🙂 I’m also currently obsessed with Mother Beverage Drinks, which James and I found on Shark Tank and now have a monthly subscription service to.
8:00 P.M. As we wrap up dinner at the kitchen table we discuss what dessert everyone wants. I personally love whipped cream and berries, or Craig’s vegan ice cream! Having a little something sweet is kinda a must.
9:00 P.M. By this time, all four of us move to the couch to finish the night watching a fun movie or an episode of the Bachelorette. We are big fans and not afraid to admit it!
10:00 P.M. Our friends usually head out and James and I start winding down. James is usually on dog duty and takes French and Finn out in the backyard while I start getting ready for bed.
10:30 P.M. I’m definitely a night shower kind of girl! I have waited almost ten years for my hairdressers Nikki and Riawna to come out with their own line – and my dreams have finally come true with In Common! I start cleansing my hair with clear haze, their universal shampoo, followed by Mojave Rain– the in-shower treatment enhancer. I finish with velvet cloud (my favorite part) a lightweight moisturizer. I have thick hair, and this moisturizing system doesn’t weigh my hair down and makes it silky smooth. Once out of the shower, I wash my face with Olga Lorencin’s cleansing Gel and my Clarisonic, followed by Olga’s rebalancing toner. My Facialist Veronica Martis turned me onto IS Clinical’s Active Serum a few years back and I’ve been hooked ever since. I follow with IS Clinica’s Youth cream and IS Clinical’s Neckperfect to start preventing neck wrinkles.
11:00 P.M. Since I’m currently on crutches, I have to be very careful about how I get into bed. Every night I slide my legs into the Rapid Reboot Recovery System, which helps with swelling and lymphatic drainage. I then get James to help with putting my CPM machine on the bed after I finish with the Rapid Reboot Recovery System. A CPM machine is an electronic machine that bends my knee for me while I lay there. I am currently at a 40-degree bend, and am getting stronger each week. The motion is very slow – but it helps get my mobility back. Since my surgery, I strap into the machine before bed and sleep with it on all night. This has been tough for me, as I usually sleep on my stomach and I have had to get used to sleeping on my back with my knee bending all night.
11:15 P.M. Right before bed I apply Aquaphor onto my scar. My dermatologist Dr. Jeanette Black swears by Aquaphor while the incision is in the healing process. Aquaphor is used to treat the incision and also help and prevent skin infections.
11:30 P.M. James and I try to turn off all electronics at least 30 minutes before bed. We use this time to read and catch up on our days. The dogs sometimes get a crazy burst of energy and James will take them outside and run them in the backyard to tire them out, and make sure they don’t keep us up all night.
12:00 P.M. Bedtime! Good night 🙂
