Whether we are escaping the mundanity of our restricted lives or the messiness of our social media feeds, a woman’s night time routine has become a much-needed tool to disconnect and relax. In a new series “How I Wind Down…”, we speak to lot of different women about how they prepare for a restful evening.
For Australian model, Cameron Stephens, her launch into the fashion industry begun on a whim. She made a last-minute decision in 2018 to attend a casting call for clothing label, Good American (co-founded by Khloe Kardashian). She landed a gig with the brand and shortly following signed with IMG Sydney. She’s walked for Australian fashion royalty, Matteau and Hansen & Gretel and this week will continue her runway career at David Jones’ Fall/Winter 2021 Gala Runway at the Melbourne Fashion Festival.
Now Stephens is firmly planted in the spotlight, she shares how to stay energised day in and day out.
GRAZIA: Can you describe your night time beauty routine?
“I try to keep it minimal when it comes to my night routine. Hydration is a big part of my beauty routine, so I like to keep it simple with a Grown Alchemist moisturiser and serum. Some nights, if I feel like I need an extra glow the following day, I might throw on a face mask before bed. I am currently obsessed with La Mer’s The Treatment Lotion Hydrating Mask. I also make sure I don’t forget my neck décolletage and use Dermalogica’s Neck Contour Serum.”

How do you wind down after a busy day?
“I definitely turn my phone off. I like to make sure I have at least an hour without any technology before bed. I will usually sit down and read a great book, or I have been really getting into meditation lately which makes me feel so much better after a busy day. If I am feeling a little rundown, then I’ll also take Welco’s Super Boosters Detoxifying Liver Tonic to support me.”
How do you decorate your space to assist in falling asleep?
“Routine is key for me. I always turn my In Essence Midnight Diffuser on and dim the lighting in my room. It has a way of making me feel relaxed, especially after a busy day of being in front of bright lighting on a shoot.”

“It is not always the case, but I try and get at least 8 hours of sleep to ensure I am ready and energised for the next day. I try to get into bed around 9:30pm to 10:30pm.”
Do you plan the next day’s look the night before or in the morning? If so, what’s your go-to look for an easy morning the next day?
“It depends on how busy my schedule is the next day however I usually go to bed having a rough idea of what I am going to wear especially if I need to get up early. My go to outfit is my favourite Significant Other knit dress from David Jones, with a pair of this seasons Alias Mae chunky commando style boot or sneakers styled with my cross body Stella McCartney bag.”
