Being a model, you tend to spend a lot of time in hair and makeup chairs for shows and shoots, so they have access to the best and some of the most talented hairstylists and makeup artists in the world. Along the way, they have definitely picked up some beauty pointers, so for this month we have decided to do a post on what tricks they have learnt, and no we are not just talking about any models, we are talking about some of the stunners of the industry, such as Jourdan Dunn, Coco Rocha, Andrej Pejic and many more backstage at shows for New York, Milan, Paris and London
Cover-up is my go-to. If I leave the house and I need to run out, it’s cover up, mascara, and a little bit of contour. Estee Lauder has great cover-up.
I think you just have to clean your face really carefully. It’s important to clean your face every night. I also use day cream and night cream. Chanel really works for me.
I definitely moisturize. Especially during the winter, I always like trying different things; one thing I just bought in Paris is the Avene moisturizer. I also sometimes put a drop of oil in my moisturizer just at night before I go to sleep.
I always try to carry a hair serum with me for my flyaways - I have John Frieda’s secret weapon. I always have my own makeup wipes backstage. Just in case you don’t have time to take your makeup off, on your way to your next place you can do it. I use Estée Lauder wipes ones with cucumber. They're perfect because they are soothing to the skin.
I use jojoba oil to remove my mascara. I feel like it’s less harsh, and it’s good for your lashes. I use organic products for my skin, like Bulgarian rose oil.
Don’t sleep with your makeup on. Apply a really good moisturizer on your face before you apply foundation—it sets the look better and makes your skin moist.
Curl your eyelashes, even if you don’t want to wear mascara. It opens the eyes and gives them a really nice tweak. It’s really important, even if you don’t want to wear any makeup or you want to have a really natural look, curl your eyelashes. It makes you look more awake and fresher.
Always drink a lot of water and get enough sleep, otherwise the skin just won’t look good. I also like to spray Evian water on my face to hydrate my skin throughout the day. And take off your makeup as soon as you get home–don’t wait too long because your pores get clogged, it’s horrible for your skin.
A weird thing that I’ve learned backstage—and it’s good—is that some of the makeup artists use a little warm spoon just to get all of the little lashes that don’t want to curl up. They warm up the spoon with a lighter!
