Beauty Secrets Of Top Models

- by Caroline Hastings-Brown -

Ah, supermodels! Those exquisite, mythical creatures of beauty, grace and style. Always with an enviable glow, the latest chic accessory and a flippant ‘I woke up like this’ air about them. Well, for those of us who don’t earn many millions every year just by stalking down a runway or having a few snaps taken, you might be surprised to learn some of the tricks of the trade that the models swear by!

They Are Human!

For starters, I would just like to state that, while being blessed with great genes, top models do not get to where they are without a bit of hard work and tenacity! And, they are just like us, with good days and bad days. Days when they haven’t eaten as healthily as they should, or work and stress have dried out the skin and it’s broken out in spots. But just so you know, here are some of the simple, and surprising beauty secrets of the hottest models out there today!

Gisele’s Perfect Pout Method

Take the quintessential Brazilian bombshell and Victoria’s Secret angel, Gisele Bundchen. The absolute last word in natural, golden, sun kissed sexiness! When she is not working, Gisele sports a very natural look that is enhanced by full and plump-looking lips. Her secret? She uses a nude lipliner that gives the mouth definition and fullness, followed by a slick of pink lipstick to achieve the look. Try Lavera Soft Lipliner in Rose 01, to define your lips and to stop your lipstick from feathering. To apply, start at either corner of your mouth and draw a line up towards the bow of your lips. Follow up with a slick of conditioning Burt’s Bee Rejuvenating Lip Balm with Acai Berry.   

Cindy Combines Health And Haircare

When it comes to longevity and a lady who literally created the concept of a ‘supermodel’, look no further than the smouldering Cindy Crawford. Cindy is a businesswoman and mother who values multitasking and ‘double duty beauty’ above all. One of her favourite tips is to combine gym and spa and use a pre-wash conditioner on her hair while exercising, knowing that you will be washing your hair after. A greasy workout ponytail is a small price to pay! Try John Masters Organics Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner –  an intensive conditioning for dry, damaged, color-treated and permed hair. It contains lavender and avocado oil with 10 certified-organic plant extracts and oils to bring intense moisture and vitality to dry hair. Hair is left shiny, soft and luxurious with a wonderful, light lavender scent.

Kate’s A Tan Fan

The iconic Kate Moss, epitome of the ‘London Look’ loves a gentle tan, whether she is striding on a tropical beach in the sunshine or braving the British Winter. And, surprisingly, Kate prefers to administer her own beauty routine, rather than spend lots of time in salons. She swears by the natural, shimmery glow and hydration of St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil.

Liu Blocks Out The Sun 

Runway regular Liu Wen puts sunblock at the top of her beauty regime list. And her favourite? It’s another multi-tasker –  Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Invisible Skin-Fusion Multi-Perfecting Make-Up SPF 30 PA +++ . Using this beautifier she can instantly perfect skin tone and vibrancy, provide sun damage protection and protect her beautiful asset – her flawless skin, from the sun! 

Cara Keeps It Clean

One of the defining supermodels of our time has to be the girl who made full eyebrows covetable, Cara Delevigne. Her distinctive look and outgoing character have made her an icon of camera and catwalk. Her secret – having clean, make up-free skin whenever possible. So whether you are just too tired to do your normal cleansing routine, or you are on a long flight or other form of transport, Cara’s trick is to whip out some facial cleansing wipes and get rid of makeup and dirt whenever she can! Try Bioderma Créaline H2O Dermatological Wipes (For Sensitive Skin) for ultra-mild cleansing and makeup removal for sensitive face and eyes, that will eliminate all trace of makeup, even waterproof.

So, you see. It is not all about the most expensive products and exclusive beauty treatments. Affordable products and clever use and you can adopt that air of confidence and beauty too!
