Beauty tips straight from the catwalk

For several weeks, they had all eyes focused on them. It was fashion week in New York, London, Milan and Paris. The best international models learned tricks to keep their fresh skin and hair healthy, from experts in makeup and hair. A reporter from fashionista.com talked with a few of them about the things they care when it comes to beauty routine, and look what they advice us.

 

Anja Rubik:

Curl your eyelashes, even if you don’t want to wear mascara. It just 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 want to have a really natural look, just curl your eyelashes. It makes you look more awake, and just fresher.

Nana Keita:

Always drink a lot of water and always 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.

Andrej Pejic:

Backstage I learned how to do my hair and blow-dry into a blow wave I used to use a curling iron before, but now it’s all about blow dryer and a big round barrel brush!

Karolina Kurkova:

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.

Joan Smalls:

I always try to carry a hair serum with me for my flyaways. I always say to carry your 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 ones with cucumber. They’re perfect because they’re very soothing to the skin.
