If your Instagram feed looks anything like mine, then you have probably been inundated with fashion week photos over the past few weeks…. obligatory runway shots, backstage beauty, bizarre nail art, make you jealous party pics and of course, the models. These near-mortal feline creatures epitomize the look of perfect skin, both on and off the runway, and I just can’t seem to get enough! For me, it’s that “model off duty” beauty vibe, complete with barely-there makeup and an ethereal glow that I am obsessed with. You know the look I am talking about. Clean, radiant skin, so luminous and dewy, and maybe even a glossy eye. What is their secret? Well, over the past few weeks, I have spent a lot of time backstage, and I have learned their little secret. In addition to plenty of water, green juice and eating organic I discovered that when these girls aren’t working they give their skin a much needed break from the heavy and chemical laden products and switch to organic and all natural makeup and skincare whenever possible.
This modelesque look is in fact my specialty and in the spirit of Fashion Week (Month!) and my most recent decision to try to go all natural, I have decided to nail down the products it takes to achieve model worthy skin. The catwalk is calling your name.
How-to Achieve Modelesque Skin:
Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence, $85 – A light moisturizing toner spray that can be spray on throughout the entire day giving your complexion a dewy radiance! The amazingly fresh scent is addictive.
RMS Living Luminizer, $38 – One of my favorite all time products! Can be used everywhere, on cheek bones, brow bones and eyelids to create a healthy, sheer, glowing look! This is every models best-kept secret.
Rodin Luxury Face Oil, $150 – Packed with eleven essential oils, this skin-quenching oil leaves my complexion dewy, supple and radiant. There is a reason that celebs like Gwyneth and Liv Tyler rely on this miracle product.
Earth Tu Face Skin Stick, $38 – My latest find. This all-purpose skin salve can be used on the face, lips & body and provides protective hydration as well as prevents & fades scarring.
REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask, $55 – This mask is the best! It totally reduces the appearance of fine lines and dramatically improves tone, firmness, and radiance. I like to use before and after long nights and late parties.
Tatcha Blotting Papers, $12 – Perfect for an on the go girl. I like to always keep these in my beauty bag for in taxi touchups.
Ilia Beauty Illuminator I Put a Spell on You, $34 – This is the perfect yet sheer pop of peachy coral and adds some friendly yet natural color. Made from organic ingredients with the healing properties of Vitamin E and Shea Butter.
RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up, $36 – This is literally the best concealer I have ever come across. This is something that every girl needs to know about. I used under the eyes, around the nose, and anywhere else I need.
TARTE LipSurgence™ Matte Lip Tint in Adored, $24 – This is the perfect shade of pink. The color lasts all day and although it is a stain, it is super moisturizing and smells like peppermint.
Josie Maran Coconut Watergel Check Color in Poppy Paradise, $22 – The coconut infused cheek gel is the perfect pop of color and super easy to apply.
Josie Maran Coconut Pure Argan Oil Light To Go, $14 – I love Josie’s Argan Oils and the light version is perfect for year-round use. I love the smaller on-the-go size that I can just throw in my bag.
RMS Lip2Cheek in Demure, $36 – This soft pink rosey lip2cheek is the perfect multi-functioning product that leaves a beautiful, natural finish. It’s no wonder than models like Giselle and Miranda Kerr call the Lip2Cheek their favorite.
Clark’s Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask, $72 – This clarifying white-clay mask helps revitalize my tired skin. Instantly my skin is brighter, tighter and more luminous.
