Models Have The Best Beauty Advice

Model Beauty Advice

Or did you already know that? Here, the best bits of advice top models have ever shared with W—from Kate Moss’s diet to Andreea Diaconu’s eyebrows.


Edie Campbell on beauty: “There’s more to life than what you look like on the outside, but I guess first impressions count.”


Daria Strokous on the best spa-cation: “The Blue Lagoon in Iceland. It’s the most surreal place I’ve ever been and the mud masks are amazing.”


Herieth Paul on off-label uses: “Conditioner as shaving cream. It not only softens the hair making it easier to shave, it leaves legs feeling super silky and smooth.”


Julia Nobis on skincare: “You can make a very decent body scrub using nothing but equal parts sugar, preferably raw, and olive oil. I have done this in a hotel room using room service supplies. Worked as a treat, tasted awful though.”


Andreea Diaconu on advice from the pros: “No eyebrow plucking.”


Daphne Groenveld on juicing: “I tried a juice cleanse once at a resort where we spent a lot of time doing yoga, Pilates and meditation. I loved it. I felt calm and my skin looked really good.”


Kate Moss’s best advice from mom: “Don’t mix the grapes with the grains.”

Caroline Trentini on event makeup: “Always take a picture with flash for a final check—this shows if the colors of the concealer/foundation are right.”


Miranda Kerr on the secret to beauty from the inside out: “Mediation. Nurturing the mind, body, and soul connection. Exercise often. Keep moving. From the outside, using my certified organic skincare. I also feed my body with foods that are high in nutrients like lots of fresh greens and noni juice.”


Aline Weber on great skin: “Find a dermatologist—and stick with them.”
