Ever wonder how those highly-paid, super popular fashion models keep their looks in check, while being so busy and active? Well, supermodels learn a few things along their journey in the modeling industry, here are a few of their best kept beauty secrets.
How to Look Great In Photos
When taking photos it’s all about the lighting, always try to face the light source and try to steer clear of overhead light that will make you appear to have dark circles and may cast shadows on your face. Moisturize your lips with a balm or gloss before taking photos as well, as lips that appear dry will make you look older.
What to Do About a Zit
Many supermodels swear by using Tea Tree Oil on pop up zits to help battle the swelling and eliminate the bacteria. Tea Tree Oil is a great natural approach to fight those unwanted breakouts.
How to Make Your Eyes Appear Larger
Tyra Banks is the most known for this great supermodel secret as she shared it with the world on her television show. She suggests wearing white eyeliner on your bottom water line will make your eyes appear larger and make you appear more awake. This is a great tip for those days when you feel drained but still want to look great.
How to Get an Even Complexion
Many supermodels swear by using lemon juice to even their complexion. Lemon juice is a natural cleanser and disinfectant. Lemon is also known as a natural lightener, and will lighten any dark spots on your face to create a more even skin tone. To do this simply squeeze the juice from a lemon, apply the juice to the face with a cotton ball, wait about 5 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
How to Get Strong Shiny Hair
Using coconut oil as a hair treatment is very popular in the modeling industry. Coconut oil supplies the scalp and hair with moisture as well as vitamins and protein to make it stronger. To use coconut oil as a hair treatment, simply apply the oil to the hair from the roots to the ends. Massage the scalp for about a minute, and leave the oil in the hair for one hour. After one hour massage the scalp again, then shampoo well, condition the hair, and style as usual.
Keep Makeup Brushes Clean

One tip on this comes from Linda Vojtova, “I was all my makeup brushes with baby shampoo. It keeps them clean, and the brushes last longer”.
The Importance of Moisture
Moisture is important in every part of the body. Make sure you are staying well hydrated as this will help keep your skin soft and dewy. If you are lacking moisture and want some fast results try using Vitamin E oil. Just take a capsule of Vitamin E pierce the side, squeeze out the oil, and apply to the face, this can be used on the lips as well. You will see results almost instantly. Vitamin E oil is great for the skin, and will make your skin glow. Many supermodels also believe in hydrating the skin from the inside out and recommend drinking coconut water, coconut water is high in potassium and contains antioxidants and is naturally rich in electrolytes.
