11 Beauty Hacks Models Don’t Want You to Know
Have you ever wondered how Victoria's Secret models manage to maintain their exceptional beauty? And even though we try to follow the same rules, they just don't seem to work the same way for us. Well, our guess is that we just don't know all of the secrets. Yet.
We at Bright Side have done some research and we've come up with a list of invaluable beauty tips so that you can feel like the queen you are!
11. Lavish masks
Even if you never forget to treat yourself to an hour of skin care, this is a trick that many of Victoria's Secret models use – 24-carat gold mask. The night before every big event, models use this lavish mask to help their skin shine through.
10. Cheat days
Slender figures are usually the result of genetics, exercise, and a healthy diet. However, anyone who has ever been on a diet knows the importance of having a "cheat meal" when you let yourself eat any food you want. This is an important aspect of dieting because it not only lifts the mental tension of having to constantly restrain yourself, but it also gives you something to look forward to. Just keep in mind that one cheat meal doesn't mean your diet is over and that you can continue eating unhealthy foods!
9. Fresh face
You'll rarely spot professional models wearing lots of makeup when they're not on the runway. No matter how gentle your makeup is, it's still enough to have a negative effect on your skin. Wearing makeup all the time can contribute to the onset of early wrinkles and can clog your pores. This means that the more you use makeup to cover up imperfections, the more you'll need it.
8. Right water intake
A common myth is that you need to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. But every person's body is different so it's necessary to calculate the correct amount of water that's needed for your body.
For someone who lives in a moderate climate, it's recommended to drink about 30 ml of water per one kilo of your weight. You'll have to calculate – 0.5 oz x the weight of your body in lb = your perfect daily water intake in oz.
7. Correct supplements
Vitamins are crucial for anyone who lives in the city or who is on a strict diet. If you are a vegetarian or a vegan, it's necessary to add the B12 vitamin to your daily intake. If you live in a city deprived of sunlight, your body will benefit from D vitamins, such as D3. To figure out which supplements are best for you personally, it's recommended that you consult with a certified nutritionist.
6. Shaving schedule
You probably didn't think that the time you shave could have any meaning, right? Well, the next time you shave, it's best to do it in the afternoon or at least half an hour after you wake up since swollen skin can prevent a clean shave. While sugaring is one of the best methods of getting rid of unwanted hair, it's not for everyone, so if you stick to shaving, keep this suggestion in mind!
5. Workout no-no's
As tempting as it is to begin your workout without washing your makeup off, you should make it a rule to never do so. Sweat and makeup do not mix well and the result can leave you with clogged pores and possible breakouts.
4. Ice the face
This is a trick from Victoria's Secret model Jasmine Tooks. To keep her face firm and fresh, she uses a piece of ice on her face to gently massage her skin with it every morning.
3. Reduce eye bags
Victoria's Secret model Victoria Brito may not be a top chef, but she definitely knows how to get the most out of a potato wedge! She cuts potatoes into pieces and places them under her eyes for about 10-15 minutes to reduce eye bags.
2. Less on everything, but the eyes
These days, makeup trends are always changing. The world's lead makeup artist Tom Pecheux announced this year's best look as "glamour with a natural face." So get ready to see some bright and dazzling eye makeup and some clean and fresh faces this year.
1. Avoid smudging
The same makeup artist, Tom Pecheux, suggests letting your mascara dry between every coat to avoid smudging. The best way to do this is to use a sort of "shield," such as a credit card, on your eyelids.
