Lily Aldridge opens up about her beauty tips and secrets, and some of the products she swears by. The supermodel and Victoria’s Secret Angel also spoke about her daily routine and how she maintains a flawless look even when traveling and missing out on sleep.
The 30-year-old supermodel is well known to many as a member of Taylor Swift’s girl squad. During the pop superstar’s ‘1989’ tour she sometimes made stage appearances alongside fellow models Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid and others. And that’s not her only tie to the music world, she’s also the wife of Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followil of the multi-Grammy winning rock band Kings of Leon. The couple has a four-year-old daughter, Dixie.
She told Allure magazine about her beauty routine in a recent interview. While naturally we assume that for the supermodel, she would name check an array of top-of-the-line cosmetics — and yes, she does, of course — she also revealed that she’s found some novel uses for everyday food products that we all have.
She said, “I love making a body scrub with ground-up coffee and coconut oil. It’s really good for circulation, and it smells delicious. I also do a DIY Greek-yogurt-and-honey mask that softens your skin and helps reduce puffy eyes.”
She also shared her tricks for vanquishing the dark circles under the eyes and the otherwise haggard look from lack of sleep. She said, ” “Undereye patches are genius. From traveling, I get really puffy under my eyes. Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches are a great ten-minute trick to look refreshed. They’re perfect for moms running on no sleep.”
As for caring for her signature long brunette locks, she said, “I like a pretty, undone look. So I wash my hair every other day so it doesn’t get dried out, and I let it air-dry. If I want soft waves, I’ll braid it first.”
And not least, she also revealed who her style icon is none other than the screen legend Audrey Hepburn, famous for her LBD in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s.’ She said she thinks she’s “effortless and the epitome of glamorous, elegant, and cool.” No argument there!
