Beauty Tips from a Sports Illustrated Model

Hailey Clauson on her high-low approach to beauty.


Twenty-year-old Hailey Clauson began her career on the runways of Dior and Marc Jacobs and has since made the switch to Sports Illustrated. Here the California girl shares her high-low approach to beauty, workouts and lifestyle.

Your look in three words: Feminine. Modern. Retro.

Five-minute routine: Toss my hair in a sleek ponytail, add mascara and lip tint, throw on black jeans, t-shirt, and Nike’s.

Never leave the house without: Water spray and Chapstick.

Exercise regime: I train five times a week with my trainer, Jullien Herrera. Our workouts include boxing, jump roping, ab workouts, and leg and booty workouts.

Nutritional lifesaver: I hate dieting, so eating healthy for me is a lifestyle. It’s all about eating real organic food that’s like lots of greens, fruit, organic lean meats and quinoa. I love drinking lemon water and green juices throughout the day.

Beauty essentials: For makeup, I love Tarte products. Their foundation gives you that no-makeup-makeup look, which is great for every day.

Skincare secret: My favorite product ever is Egyptian Magic (the name convinced me to buy it) you can put it on your hair, body and face.

Hair remedy: I’m all about letting my hair air dry, and putting oil in it to keep it hydrated.

In-tub must-read: Emails – while trying not to get my phone wet!

Spa-cation at: Ojai Valley Inn. It’s serene, and reminds me how beautiful nature can be.

Fragrance of choice: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb.

Best advice from mom: Do your best so no one can say you didn’t try.

Best advice from the pros: Surround yourself with people you love and trust.

Beauty icons: Verushka

Anything else: When in doubt, put on a red lip.

Models Have The Best Beauty Advice

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.”
