Talking beauty products with models normally results in a laundry list of expensive formulas and hard-to-pull-off colors, but Klum streamlined her routine to just her tried-and-true favorites. вЂњI'm very simple,вЂќ she says. We sat down with the Renaissance woman to learn her trick to model legs, the bronzer she swears by, and why she loves gel manicures.
вЂњI don't have big lips so I like to focus on my eyes,вЂќ Klum says. вЂњI love to make them look really big.вЂќ How? She uses Shu Umera's Eyelash Curler ($20), Armani's Eyes To Kill Mascara ($30), and YSL's Pure Chromatics Palette ($55) in No. 8.
вЂњPeople get really worried about gels because they think they'll make their nails brittle,вЂќ Klum says. вЂњBut I have found the opposite, I think wearing Shellac has actually made my nails better!вЂќ She favors light neutrals, like Clearly Pink, left.
Whether she's contouring or just wants to look sun-kissed, Klum uses YSL's Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder ($50).
вЂњMy hair is naturallyВ dark,вЂќ says Klum. вЂњI have to color my roots every four weeks, so I need products that are really good for damaged hair.вЂќ To keep her strands healthy and softВ she usesВ Clear's Intensive Treatment Tubes ($16). "I do oneВ about every two weeks," says the brand'sВ spokesperson.
Klum favors sunbathing to self-tanner, but she always protects her skin. When hitting the pool she uses cream formulas from Banana Boat; try their Broad Spectrum Sport SPF 30 ($8)!
Klum may not need help defining her cheekbones, but she gets her flush from YSL's Blush Radiance ($45) in No. 3.
вЂњWhen I wear short skirts I mix Sally Hansen's Airbrush Legs ($13) with lotion in my hands and rub it into my legs,вЂќ says Klum. вЂњIt creates an even skin tone and hides little veins.вЂќ
вЂњIf I use anything heavy on my face I break out,вЂќ says Klum. She swears by Mario Badescu's Buttermilk Moisturizer ($18) and any of the brand's eye creams. Try their Hyaluronic Eye Cream ($18) or Special Eye Cream V ($18).
In Klum's shower you'll find Clear's Damage and Color Repair Shampoo ($6) and Conditioner ($6). вЂњI have this phobia of going to my next job with dirty hair or greasy roots,вЂќ says Klum. вЂњSo I wash my hair every single day.вЂќ
Klum's minimalist attitude also translates to hair products: вЂњI like basic hairspray,вЂќ she says. вЂњI'm photographed all the time, so I can't use products like dry shampoo because it removes all the shine.вЂќ Her styling product of choice is Schwarzkopf's OSiS+ Freeze Finish 2 Strong Hold Hairspray ($19).Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara $30ShopYSL Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder $50ShopShu Umera Eyelash Curler $20ShopMario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream $18ShopClear Intensive Treatment Tubes $15ShopSchwarzkopf OSiS+ Freeze Finish 2 Strong Hold Hairspray $19ShopMario Bedescu Buttermilk Moisturizer $18ShopYSL Blush Radiance $45ShopSally Hansen Airbrush Legs $12ShopBanana Boat Sport Performance SPF 30 $10ShopClear Damage and Color Repair Conditioner $6ShopClear Damage and Color Repair Shampoo $6ShopYSL Pure Chromatics Palette $55Shop
