The model everyone’s talking about shares some of her favourite things…
“When you use really good products, less is more. Simple things like Maybelline’s Fit Me foundation and Volum’ Express The Colossal mascara are great. I love The Nudes eye shadow palette too. The lighter brown eye shadow shade doesn’t really look like you’re wearing any eye shadow, but it’s great to bring definition to your eye shape, particularly mine.”
Favourite travel destinations?
“I’ve never been to Ireland, but I’d love to go. Tahiti is probably my favourite destination, though. I’ve shot in Tahiti too, and that’s amazing because a lot of the time when you’re shooting on the beach in Malibu in winter, it looks sunny, but it’s windy and cold, but if you’re shooting in the winter in Tahiti, it’s the perfect temperature because it’s not too hot.”
“I love to read, mostly the news. My favourite books include The Giver by Lois Lowry, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, and Sharon Creech’s Walk Two Moons. I’m currently reading Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist.”
Favourite way to work out?
“Every day that I’m in New York, and not working, I box at Gotham Gym with my trainer Rob Piela. I grew up my whole life playing sports so just working out at the gym doesn’t do it for me mentally. I love boxing because I feel like it’s something I can get better at and it takes my mind off of reality when I’m doing it. It’s a great mental escape, and I’m always excited to get back in the gym. Gotham is like my second home in the city.”
What music are you listening to?
“I listen to everything from Beyoncé to Michael Bublé. Though, my favourite artist has to be John Mayer – I could listen to all of his albums, start to finish.”
