Supermodel Beauty Secrets

by on Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 with

Cindy, Iman, Giselle and Miranda…do we even need mention last names? Curious about what keeps the fashion industry’s most coveted ambassadors of beauty and fashion looking their best 24/7? I dug up tons of their supermodel beauty secrets and quite a bit more. Read on for the inside scoop. 

WHO? 21 years as a makeup artistCharlotte’s the only person to do makeup on the cover of the big September Vogue issue in the U.S. Paris and the U.K. in the same month!!! Her client list includes Kate Moss, Eva Mendes, Kristin Stewart, Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow to name a few!

SECRETS: Generous gal! She’s giving them all away in her new talking video box!! Combining the vintage wonder of an old-fashioned Ballerina jewelry box, and the technological ease of an iPad, you can literally watch, learn and apply makeup just by opening the lid. Charlotte shares her secrets step-by-step, bringing her artistry to your fingertips – perfect for makeup novices and product junkies alike. For a limited time only, you can get The Supermodel Look – the perfect smoky eye that looks good on every skin tone.
WHERE: Nordstrom and 
($49.95 For Reg. Shipment, $72 for non-members)
WHO: She puts the “Super” in Supermodel from here early days endorsing Pepsi and Revlon and now with Meaningful Beauty Skin Care, to say Cindy has done rather well for herself is the ultimate understatement.
SECRETS: When a friend connected Cindy with famed dermatologist Dr. Sebagh a dynamic duo was born and they moved forward to harness the powers of melon extract and the antioxidant found in it called Superoxid Dismutase to minimize fine lines and wrinkles at affordable prices. The newest launch is the Ultra Line & Filling Treatment a dual action serum designed to lift sagging, aging skin and fill and plump the fine lines and wrinkles. The famed Melon extract gets some tech support from a rare orchid extract that supports collagen and elastin production. It works both instantly and long term to deliver results which I see as the benchmark of a trustworthy face serum in this competitive marketplace
WHO: Victoria Secret phenomenon who’s graced the KTLA news desk in the past! She grew up in a South African Village on of all things a Dairy Farm! A model scout discovered her at 15 in the middle of a flea market, and the rest as they say is history! Now she’s one of Victoria Secret’s go-to models!
SECRET: “I’m pretty neurotic about keeping my skin clean. In the morning I wash with rosewater and use a rich moisturizer and sunscreen every day!” 
Great tip because Rosewater has a TON of beauty benefits…
  • Soothe and cool sensitive skin
  • Balance and cleanse oily skin
  • Rejuvenate, soften, and tone mature skin
  • Adds glow to normal skin
  • Filled w/ anti-oxidants & vitamins so great tool for anti aging
  • Antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties

WHO: Ethiopian born, Liya is a one of the faces for Estee Lauder. She is as much a successful model as she is a successful philanthropist.  Liya launched her own foundation and is on a mission of advocacy about maternal, new born and child health working to reduce mortality for these 3 groups in Ethopia AND worldwide! 
SECRET:  I am a HUGE fan of Aquaphor. Not only do I use it on myself but I use it on my children as well.” 
This is a great multi-tasker and it’s been a best kept secret for run way models and makeup artists for many years running!
  • Hydrate Dry Cuticles
  • Repair Dry Heels
  • Turn Eyeshadow or Blush Into a Lip Color
  • Protect Teeth From Lipstick
  • Extend Perfume
  • Tame Eyebrows
  • Conceal Split Ends

TRY: Aquaphor ($2.49 to $16.99) or Drugstores Nationwide 

From Eucerin it’s clinically proven advanced therapy for skin. Fragrance fee, non-irritating
WHO? Was born in Sydney, Australia and originally aspired to be become a nutritionist which makes her wellness tip such a logical fit!  She has her own skincare line called Kora Organics and published her own self love/help book called “Treasure Yourself”
SECRET“I take 4 teaspoons of coconut oil every day, either in my salads, in my cooking or in my green tea. I will not go a day without coconut oil!” So I did a little research of her beloved Coconut Oil and discovered such great uses for it…
  • Eye Makeup Remover
  • As a cloth diaper safe cream
  • Lightens age spots when rubbed directly on skin
  • In tons of homemade lotion recipes
  • Massage Oil 
  • Dab a tiny bit on hair to get rid of frizz
  • Rub on lips as a natural chap stick
  • Can help sooth psoriasis or eczema


WHO: Brazilian born, Gisele is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program. She was a Victoria Secret Model up until 2007. Forbes lists her as the 89th most powerful woman in the world for 2014! 
SECRET:  “If you’re wearing smoky eye makeup, a little beige or gold pencil on the inner eye corners will open up the area, but you only want to do it if the shadow is really dark. Otherwise, light pencil makes your eyes look too far apart, like a fish.” 
This a great tip because without this touch of brighting at the inside corners of your eyes, a smokey eye look has the potential to make normal set eyes look smaller and close set when in fact they’re not
TRY: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in either “Yeyo” or “Goldmine” ($20) 
It’s creamy yet waterproof! They packed jojoba oil, vitamin E and cottonseed oil into the formula. You have about 30 seconds upon application to blend it around then it dries down to a long lasting finish that will not budge. Love this! 


WHO: Iman hails from Somalia. She modeled for 14 years, her first Vogue assignment was in 1976. Her cosmetic company launched in 1994 and by 2010 was generating 25 million in sales!  Naturally the TV Home Shopping World came a calling in 2007 and she’s been exceedingly successful on HSN ever since! 
SECRET: My beauty tip is bronzer. Regardless of whether you’re light-skinned or dark-skinned, wear bronzer. Put it on the periphery of the face, the décolletage, and the cheeks. It always makes you look like you just came from Ibiza!
TRY: IMAN Sheer Finish Bronzing Powder in “Sand” “Clay” or “Afterglow” ($16) 
Can be worn as as all over complexion enhancer or blush year round!
