We’re so excited to have supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on the cover of this month’s issue of IMAGE, not just because she’s an absolute?babe (obviously), but also because ‘she is genuinely relatable – hands up who else is guilty of some peroxide blonde badger streaks in their teens, courtesy of a home dye kit?!
In the new issue, she discusses the importance of recognising that modelling is a job and her physique and skin are her tools. She says herself, “I have a shelf life”, and travelling so much while keeping her skin looking fresh and dewy is no easy feat. Here, she gives us a glimpse into her beauty bag to discover what the absolute beauty necessities are for a globetrotting supermodel.
Rosie’s Morning Routine
Like most of the beauty tribe, Rosie swears by Bioderma. The French brand were one of the first to pioneer the “micellar water” and their Sensibio H2O Makeup Remover remains a cult beauty classic. Nars tinted-moisturiser gives her skin an even and glowing tone.
NARS Tinted Moisturiser, €38, Brown Thomas?/ Bioderma Sensibio H2O, €11.50, available in pharmacies nationwide
Rosie’s Skin Serum Saviours
Rosie is firm believer in Shani Darden’s Resurface Retinol Reform. The lotion contains anti-inflammatory ingredient?Niacinamide and calming aloe vera. If you needed a bit more convincing, Shani Darden is the facialist for actress and Honest Company CEO Jessica Alba, a.k.a. the beauty goddess of glowing, bright skin.
