As we approach the end of October, many, if not all, of the fashion weeks around the world have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean that fashion and beauty take a break. Aside from the ridiculous amounts of makeup worn by models during said fashion shows, it’s important to remember that models aren’t always dolled up with crazy makeup. In fact, we’re willing to bet that many models leave their faces au natural on the reg. Let’s face it: natural beauty runs a lot deeper than caked on makeup. That’s not to say that a little makeup here and there to enhance natural beauty is a bad thing. We’ve rounded up a few beauty tips from some of the most notable models [via Elle] to give us a head start. Let us know what you think!
What’s the number one thing that can automatically help with your beauty regimen? More sleep – at least that’s what models Hilary Rhoda and Tao Okamoto think. Did you know most people spend more time sitting each day than sleeping? Try to get at least eight hours of sleep each night to ensure that you’ll be a little bit more energized for the upcoming day.
What’s the second best thing you can do to help your beauty regimen? “Moisturize a lot.” Model Joan Smalls mixes Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair with Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and applies that combination throughout the day to reveal a clean, fresh, and glowing complexion.
Carolyn Murphy’s secret is as easy as they come – stay hydrated! Drinking lots of water ensures that you will stay hydrated and flush out the toxins in your body. She’s been in the business since 1990 and is still looking flawless!
Fei Fei Sun’s advice combines a few different tips to feel and look fresh, young and natural: “Wear some mascara, give attention to your eyebrows, and also take care of your lips.” She suggests using Chanel mascara to get the darkest black possible, keeping your eyebrows properly groomed, and using Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 to keep that pretty pout moisturized.
Bronzer. A girl’s best friend. Adding a little bronzer on your cheek bones and a tad bit on your décolletage adds a little extra sparkle. Bringing a bit of definition to your face will brighten you up! Iman loves it! Plus, is there anything wrong with having an appropriately bronzed tan? It’s like you live in a tropical location year round!
A must have for your purse? Lipstick. Liu Wen loves a bold lip. Honestly, we can’t blame her. Take any look from drab to fab with a little dab of color. Let’s face it: society as a whole pays more attention to lips than anything else, especially when talking [you might think you look at someone’s eyes when they talk, but just you wait]. Adding lipstick or lip balm to an outfit can change your look. Easy and quick, it’s a simple show stopping addition to any outfit.
