When it comes to the latest and greatest beauty, style and skincare tips – believe me, supermodels know it all! Picking up tips from around the world from the best makeup artists, stylists and hair stylists in the business, I always want to hear what new things they’ve discovered lately!
This month has been a super busy one for me. From two trips to the north of England, to Paris, then Grenoble, back to Paris, quick couple of days in London and then on to Northern Spain via Madrid and now New York, I feel like my feet have hardly touched the ground! On the plus side, I’ve had the chance to catch up with lots of gorgeous faces from all over the world – some I’ve known for years, and some new friends too – and I’ve picked up lots of great new beauty tips.
Six SUPERMODEL FAVOURITES:
Kiko Exfoliating Wipes
Use these on the lips to gently remove any dead, dry skin. The wipes contain alpha hydroxyl acids that remove dead skin more gently than a lot of traditional lip scrubs. At only £4.70, there’s no excuse not to give these a go.
La Roche Posay Makeup Remover
Models are used to makeup artists creating crazy, long wearing makeup looks using hard to remove products, but they need to protect their sensitive skin – especially the really delicate parts like the eye area. This eye makeup remover is great for really sensitive skin and glides over the skin removing every last trace of even waterproof makeup.
Malin & Goetz Grapefruit Face Wash
Great for young, sensitive skin, this grapefruit face wash by Malin & Goetz is gentle, yet effective at keeping skin clean and balanced. The formula contains natural antibacterial – grapefruit extract which is great for purifying and removing dirt and oil from blemish prone skin.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
Amazing for healing up stubborn spots, fast, this little bottle of pink drying lotion from Mario Badescu is a wash bag must for any emergency breakouts! Available in a plastic or a glass bottle, it’s suitable for travelling with.
Burberry Lip Contour Pen
An amazing new lip product that I originally gave to a model, asked me for a top up and then gave me a new tip for how to use it! Apparently, this Lip Contour can do everything – wear it as it’s intended, around the edge of the lips to create the illusion of fuller lips, or wear it all over the lips for the ultimate no lipstick lip look, or – try it on the cheeks as a contour blush.
Decleor Intense Nutrition Lip Balm
Everyone always asks me what this lip balm is backstage and I end up giving my spare one from my set bag away or writing the name down on scraps of paper for models and celebrities! People get quite obsessed over the best lip balms I find, it’s something I get asked about a lot. I like this one myself because it has a matte finish to it so it’s not too shiny or sticky, but it really works too. It’s great for men and women and the pot is super handy to pop into a bag too.
Even though I carry around enormous suitcases of makeup, containing what feels like all the makeup in the world – there’s always room to add more!
