Sofia Richie on Struggling with Being in Her Famous Family’s Shadow

Sofia Richie graces cover of Galore’s latest issue and opens about being in a famous family, her beauty obsession and more.

Richie, who was recently in the tabloid spotlight while dating Justin Bieber, talked about being in her family’s shadow cast by dad Lionel Richie and sister Nicole Richie. “Yeah, I mean I went through it for a really long time, just feeling really in their shadow, but I grew out of it. I tried to separate myself as much as possible, figure out what I liked to do and how to get it done my own way instead of having them consistently helping me out. It’s a work in progress, but I’m trying.”

As for the one beauty routine she does everyday, she says, “I’m a freak about washing my face because when I work I have makeup on, then I take it off, put it on again, and I don’t know what brushes are dirty so I’m a freak when I get home. I have my Lancer kit that I use every night, every morning.”

On the worst piece of advice ever given to her by a friend, Richie told Galore: “One of my best girlfriends told me, ‘you know what? The only way to figure out what you really want is to put it all out there,’ and I don’t know how old I was, I think I was like 10 – yeah I was 10, and I met this guy and she told me to just go up to him and tell him I really liked him. So I did, he shot me down, and after that I was like, yeah I think I’m gonna be a little more self-protected from now on.”
