They might say that they’re “naturally blessed with good genes” but there won’t be a single model or supermodel who doesn’t live by the rulebook. Whether it’s clocking the hours at the gym to sweat it out or trying three day juice cleanses, there are some secrets they’ll never tell. Here are three of our (practical) favourites that we uncovered at the recently concluded fashion weeks.

Potent herbal oils
Just like Hollywood favourite Lupita Nyong'o most of the models rely on a potent blend of herbal oils to help their skin achieve a natural shine. Tea tree, avocado and chamomile seem to be favourites, and the best way to use them? Before bed, of course – when you’re hiding half your sweet smelling (sticky) face under a sleep mask and the other under a warm blanket that helps your skin absorb it better.


A bent mascara brush
While most of them might not even bother with kohl or eyeliner, the one thing they won’t forget is mascara. An inside trick – bend your brush just a tad to help in easier application. It’s all geometry really – with your brush bent to fit your lashes perfectly, they’ll take on more mascara in lesser strokes with minimal clumping and maximum drama.


The Perfect Radiance serum
Turns out even our belle beauties need a helping hand every now and then. The no-stress fall back option, or rather, the “ramp ready” option as it is popularly known is the Lakmé Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Serum enriched with luminising vitamins and light reflecting pearls that even out your skin tone and add a subtle glow to your skin. Trust us, it’s the instant pick-me-up that’ll leave your skin with a well-nourished, dewy finish.
