As far as you can remember, when was the first time you really started to find interest in the beauty industry?
I was 12 when I started to care about the beauty industry and fashion. It was when I was reading fashion magazines that my true passion for cosmetics began, it’s also thanks to those magazines that my desire to become a model started.
Which beauty brands do you like the most?
In terms of makeup, my favorites brands are Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, because I just love the intensity and diversity of colors that they have. Furthermore, I really like their packaging designs: they are really interesting and desirable. Recently, I am getting more into natural beauty brands that are more environmentally friendly.
What is your go-to product?
My go-to product, without hesitation, is the La Roche Posay Primer. My skin is instantly more luminous. When you are a model, your skin keeps being solicited: putting make-up, removing make-up etc. That’s the reason why I need a more simple routine when I do not work, like the use of this primer.
Do you have a beauty secret to share with us?
I would say that the fundamental thing to do is to hydrate your face and body. I apply consciously a rich moisturizer in the morning and at night. I also drink a lot of water, I take care of what I eat, and strive to maintain regular sleep. My other little secret is that I massage my face before putting on makeup. I think that it’s essential to take care of yourself to be radiant.
After a photo-shoot, what is your beauty routine?
After a day of photo-shoot, I remove my makeup with a cleansing oil. After that, I apply a moisturizing mask. I love these moments, because I feel like it’s MY moment. I travel a lot and I am always on the move , that’s why I allow myself these little times of rest, so that my skin can calm and regenerate .
