The Finnish model spills her beauty secrets.

Suvi Koponen

While Finnish model Suvi Koponen got all dolled up for “Super Normal Super Models” in W’s September 2014 issue, the 26-year-old has a much more minimalist approach to beauty and fitness in real life.

Your look: Simple.

Daily routine: Moisturizer day and night. I don’t wear a lot of makeup, ever.

Beauty from the inside out: Live in the moment.

Exercise regime: Yoga, hikes, long walks, occasional runs. I try to stay active. ____

Beauty essentials: Moisturizer, lip balm, surf spray for hair.

Skincare secrets: Wear the least amount of makeup, wash your face, drink water, moisturize!

Day to night look: If I wear make up during the day it’s a bit of mascara and cover stick. At night I add blush, luminizer stick, and lip gloss.

Favorite workout: I do gyrotonics sometimes, and try to do yoga three times a week.

Best advice from mom: Marry for love, not money. Love makes you beautiful.

Best advice from the pros: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Acne Treatment is amazing! Surf spray for hair!

Necessary splurge: La Mer lip balm.

Drugstore favorite Coconut oil is an amazing body moisturizer and makeup remover.

Fragrance of choice: Chloé Eau de Parfum.

Beauty Icons: Meryl Streep. She only gets more and more beautiful.

Anything else: Confidence is what makes you beautiful. Accept yourself and others will, too.
