Alwasy start with a primer. It´s easy to say that it´s crucial for a day like your graduation day. You want to make sure that your makeup looks flawless all day.

With the waterproof eye pen you can bring intensity to your eyes. (Deep Grey or Deep Brown).

1. Look down and use a finger to carefully pull the outer corner of your eye outwards. Draw a soft line along the upper lash line. Start from the outer corner and work your way inwards. Repeat the steps when doing the lower lash line, but look up instead of down.

2. Make sure you draw the line as close to the lash line as possible.

3. It´s OK if you're not steady on your hand, beacause the next step is to use the smudge tool on the other end of the pen to smoothen out the line.

To make sure that you stay fab all day, use the Volume & Length Mascara. It´s water resistant (not waterproof) and will last all day and does not smudge. (Models favourite).

The Cosmo Red nail polish makes sure that you stand out. Pale Pink gives you a sweet and natural look.
They are high-gloss, easy to apply, quick drying, long-lasting and has brilliant shine.

Bring the moisturising and shiny lipgloss with you all day, and touch up when needed. (Shimmering Nectar or Sparkling Pink)

Model Lindita

 

Name: Lindita L
Model since: "I think I started when I was 16, so it has to be in 2011."

-When did you know that you wanted to become a model?
"When I saw all the beautiful ladies in the magazines...I wanted to be just like them."

-How were you discovered?
"Me and my friend had a deal, if I went to an agency, she would stop "picking" on me, so I did...And then I suddenly became an model. "

-What modeling job have you enjoyed the most?

"When I went to Copenhagen for a work for Kevin.Murphy. It was a big show and we were somewhere around 35-50 models, all from the same agency and we were all friends - we had so much fun and it was a blast!
But the absolute best model job that I have ever made was when I went to Stockholm and did a job for Björn Axén, where they treated me like I was a supermodel - which was super fun!!"

-What is the best thing about beeing a model?
"You will never be a pro, there are always something new to learn, a new pose or something like that. You always surprise yourself with new sides of yourself that you never knew existed."

-What does your everyday makeup look like?
"Simple and clean. An aqua-foundation, mascara and lipgloss. Less is more."

-What´s always in your purse?
"Lipgloss, eyeliner (if I´m going out I don't need to go home and re-do my makeup, I just put some eyeliner on), perfume and hairbrush."

-What modeling job is your dream job?
"To be the new Victoria Secret PINK model. That would be amazing."

-What are your best makeup tips?
"Keep it simple. Your makeup is not supposed to cover your beauty - it´s supposed to bring out the beauty inside of you.
Don´t spend money on crappy makeup, choose something that is of good quality and your skin will thank you - keep in mind that you only have one skin, not two.
If you want beautiful skin - treat if beautifully. Never sleep with makeup on, always prefer water over soda, and never forget to have a good cream with a high SPF when you are out in the sun during summer.
A tip! If you had a red lipstick on and you want to go back to nude again - take some lip balm and leave it on the red lipstick for 5 minutes, and try to wash it of. It´s easier to wash of the red lipstick when your lips are moisturized than it is when they are dry."

Name: Michaela S
Model since: "2004"

-When did you know that you wanted to become a model?
"It wasn't really a dream of mine as a child. I was actually quite shy and did not think about modeling at all. When I got discovered I thought it would be a fun thing to try. When I started to work I soon realized I was good at it and I fell in love with the line of work and everything it has taught me. As a model you get to travel to extraordinary places around the world and you get to work with amazing and outgoing people. That's the best thing about this profession. "

-How were you discovered?
"A scout found me when I was doing work for a charity organization. "

"It's almost impossible to pick one because there are so many that I have enjoyed through the years but I think one of them has to be an editorial that we shot on the Maldives at a breathtaking resort."

-What is the best thing about beeing a model?
"The best thing is for sure the amazing places and interesting people that you meet from all over the world. It definitely widens your perspectives on things, makes you open minded and independent. "

-What does your everyday makeup look like?

-What´s always in your purse?
"I'm not a person that brings a lot on makeup when I go out. But three things that are always found in my purse are eight hour creme from Elizabeth Arden, mattifying powder and MAKIASH lip gloss shimmering nectar."

-What modeling job is your dream job?
"I would love to shoot for Sports Illustrated some day.."

-What are your best makeup tips?
"Take care of your skin! Good skin is the best base for a nice makeup. Drink a lot of water and eat healthy. Clean your face thoroughly before going to bed and invest in good skin care. When applying makeup, start with a small amount and add on gradually. "

Zainab

Name: Zainab
Model since:

"I’ve been modelling for about 7 years off and on, it hasn’t been an easy road  whatsoever as a black model in the fashion industry. Black girls have to work twice as hard to get picked up.
But it’s been life changing and extremely exciting."


-When did you know that you wanted to become a model?
"I wanted to become a model when I saw Naomi Campbell for the first time and I was  amazed by her famous catwalk strut. I think I was 12-13 years old and I was walking in my room for hours, trying to walk like her."

-How were you discovered?
"The first time I was discovered was when I was 13 years old but my parents didn´t let me beacuse they thought I was too young. I was scouted several times and the last time I was scouted was when I was in NY with my sister in 2007 and that´s when I started modeling."

-What modeling job have you enjoyed the most?

"The campaign I did with the Former Supermodel Vendela Kirsebom. The campaign was on billboards all over Norway.  I was hand picked by Vendela Kirsebom herself for her eyewear collection. That campaign was shot in her house by the famous photographer Bjorn Opsahl (also shot Tyra Banks)
when I saw myself on billboards was the best feeling!"

-What is the best thing about beeing a model?
"Being a model introduces you to a lot of people in the industry, allows you to travel and get paid for something you love. It takes more than just a pretty face to be a model. I think modeling is an expressive art and tells a story without words. You can show movement in a still picture and I think that it is incredible to be able to have that skill."

-What does your everyday makeup look like?
"For me it's all about keeping things simple but effective. I wear Mascara, I give attention to my eyebrows and take care of my lips. I like MAKIASH Mascara beacuse it has Volume & Length, it´s water resistant and lasts all day. For my eyebrows, I brush them through to keep them groomed and in place. And for my lips, i use MAKIASH Nude Plum lipgloss. I look natural and fresh using these three things!"

-What´s always in your purse?
"Lip Balm/Gloss, Basic Makeup kit, Bottled Water and Cell Phone Charger."

-What modeling job is your dream job?
"My modeling dream job would probably be to shoot anything with Steven Meisel."

-What are your best makeup tips?
"My top beauty tip is sleep! It might just be the oldest piece of beauty advice around, but it works. Also a regular detox to keep both hair and skin on top form and drink lots of water."

Model Martine Dyb

Model Martine Dyb

Name: Martine D
Model since: I signed in 2003 with Heartbreak, but I was in school and university
until 2011, after that I decided to try fulltime modeling. School came
first ;)

-When did you know that you wanted to become a model?
"After I joined a little competition in my local shopping center, they
let me do a catwalk during the summer event week there. I felt really
good about it and wanted to continue."

-What modeling job have you enjoyed the most?

"A recent job I had in Honolulu Hawaii was just amazing. It was a whole
week shooting cover and an editorial for a French magazine. It was
such a great team, and a place I always dreamed of visiting. The
coolest moment was when we took some photos in the sea and I suddenly
had two wild huge turtles around me."

-What is the best thing about beeing a model?
"To be able to travel the world and at the same time live in places like the local people does. It's not like you're a tourist getting everything organized around you, you have to adapt to the culture. You go grocery shopping on the market, figuring out the metro jungle, discovering the city in another point of view. Furthermore I have got to know amazing people all over the world, which has really opened my eyes and helped me on the way. Plus I have (almost) learnt the language of my dreams, French, by living in Paris."

-What does your everyday makeup look like?
"My everyday makeup is normally for castings, and the client wants to
see my skin and how I look without too much makeup, therefore very
natural.
I use primer (MAKIASH), BB cream, concealer (MAKIASH), brow liner,
little mascara on top lashes (for an awake look), and a little fresh
blush (MAKIASH). If it's really hot weather, I brush a little compact
powder (MAKIASH) in the T-zone."

-What´s always in your purse?
"My iPhone (completely necessary for adresses and emails....... AND of
course music, photos and instagram;P).
Chewing gums in some crazy flavors (I often get sweet cravings if I am waiting).
Water (Need it during a long day for the body, but also to avoid
dehydration of skin/lips).
A good lip balm (to transform my sometimes raisin-ish lips)."

-What modeling job is your dream job?
"Within modeling my dream job would be a booking for Victoria's Secret
(Such a cliché, I know)."

-What are your best makeup tips?
"My best makeup tips will be to just "beautify" yourself with makeup,
do it natural and enhance your best features. When Friday comes you
just add some lipstick, do a pretty eyeshadow, or use a quick
smokey-eyes pen and you're ready for anything.
And find your skin tone to chose the right colored blush and
lipsticks, it can really brighten your face up if you chose the right
colors. I have olive tone skin, and love pink and coral tones."

A few tricks to get long and seperated lashes with the Volume & Length Mascara:

mascara

  • The shape of the wand makes it easy for you to come close to the lash line
  • Start by applying a layer as close to the lash line as possible
  • Wiggle the wand back and forth to get seperated lashes
  • When applying the first layer, only apply near the roots
  • Leave the tip of the lashes mascara-free
  • Let the first layer of mascara dry a few seconds
  • Apply a second layer
  • Now apply all the way from the lash line to the tip of the lashes (wiggle the wand back and forth)
  • On the lower lashes, apply a thin layer, If needed, use a spoolie to give them a seperated and clean look.

The key is to wiggle the wand back and forth.
Apply a thick layer close to the lash line and a thinner layer on the tip of the lashes.

Name: Molle
Age: 28
Model since: 2005

-How were you discovered?
"A stylist recommended Sweden Models."

-What modelling job have you enjoined the most?
"Definitely a commercial we did for the new BMW X1. We were supposed to shoot in Austria for three days. However the weather did not allow us to finish it on time. The helicopter just couldn´t get any good shots. So we stayed in Austria for eight days. And while waiting for the weather to clear up we went swimming and visiting spas. On day seven and eight we had a shoot on top of the mountains. They closed some roads off and whenever cars did pass by, all the BMWs were covered. Stuntmen did amazing stunts with the vehicles. I actually challenged one of the stuntmen to race me. So we rented sport cars and raced  on serpentine roads. We also had a a shoot outside of Barcelona as well as in Barcelona. All together it was a two weeks shoot, containing a crew of 90 people."

-What is the best thing about beeing a model?
"Meeting facinating people and traveling to various countries and cities. However, there is a difference between working in different countries and traveling as a tourist. I miss out on visiting tourist attractions. On the other hand I get the opportunity to experience the country together with the locals. We don´t get to relax, however we do get the opportunity to network and make new relations."

-What does you everyday makeup look like?
"I use face scrubs and face care. Dermalogica makeup remover, and an eye cream from Skin doctors. "
