If whimsical, rainbow hair dye-jobs, playful yet totally wearable beauty looks, and the type of dreamy vacay photos that grace postcards (or, more relatably for 2016, Tumblr) are all things you live for, you should probably get more acquainted with model Irene Kim.

In short, she’s the “It girl” you’ll actually want to follow on Instagram…and Snapchat… and Twitter.

She’s also a global beauty contributor for Estée Lauder, and we had the chance to chat with her about her love for beauty and her travel beauty tips as she jets around the world.

Be sure to check out our interview with the star below, plus take a look at this exclusive video of Irene’s Beauty Moments in Paris shot by the Estée Stories blog that will, without a doubt, make you want to book a trip (and eat a crepe) ASAP.
