In W’s April 2014 issue, Tanzanian model Herieth Paul wears Dolce & Gabbana’s Matte Lipstick and little else. In real life, the 19-year-old uses cherries as a natural lip stain and swears by a homemade body scrub. Here, she explains her secrets:
Your look in three words:
Calm, confident, cocky-ish.
I put on moisturizer, concealer under my eyes, a little mascara, lip balm, and perfume.
Never leave the house without:
My passport. You never know where you’ll end up.
Beauty from the inside out:
As a young woman, finding and identifying with inner beauty and self-respect is not easy. I try to remind myself to be my authentic self before I start my day.
Hot yoga during the week, and Pilates on the weekend.
Serum, exfoliator, tinted moisturizer, mascara, and eye cream.
Conditioner as shaving cream. It not only softens the hair making it easier to shave, it leaves legs feeling super silky and smooth.
I use conditioner every other day, and shampoo once a month. Shampoo is too harsh on my hair.

Best advice from mom:
Cherries are great as a lip stain.
Best advice from the pros:
A mixture of brown sugar, honey, and olive oil scrubs off all the dead skin from your body.
I just discovered using a toothbrush as a lip scrubber leaves the lips so soft and plum like.
