Holiday Warm Weather Escape - Be Beauty-Ready for the Beach


The snow is falling, the holiday stress is starting to wear a bit thin, and thoughts naturally run to warm weather getaways filled with stress-free days on a remote beach.  Peeling off the layers and donning a swimsuit requires a bit of preparation to arrive glowing and and ready for the sun and sand. 


Start with exfoliation to brush off winter body skin, using a scrub that leaves behind smooth skin hydrated: try Herbivore Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish.  Follow up with a glow-inducing body treatment:  Kopari Coconut Body Glow.  Finish up with a self-tanner that is simple to apply and creates a sun-kissed look:  try Vita Liberata Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish.  


Prep your face and neck by using a mask that brightens as it gently exfoliates: try Glam Glow FlashMud Brightening Treatment.  Create a golden glow without sun damage with Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen. As you already know, using self-tanner does not protect you from the sun.  


Easy hair is one of the perks of vacation beauty, and that means no fussy or tricky hairstyles when heading to the beach.  Follow up with a leave-in conditioner that controls frizz and hydrates at the same time: try IGK Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm.


Being beauty-ready before the plane even takes off means you can head straight to the beach upon landing knowing you look like you have been there a week already, rather than someone desperately escaping frigid temperatures with dry skin and a stressed out complexion.  Happy travels!

Victoria's Secret Angels Take Shanghai 2017


It seems like the holiday season doesn’t officially start until the Angels take to the runway in the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.  Each year the show gets larger and more spectacular, featuring the hottest music artists perfuming while the supermodels strut down the runway in costumes that somehow seem to out-do those of the previous shows. 


This year the Angels traveled to Shanghai, to the enormous excitement of their eastern fans.  In a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show first the brand collaborated with legendary design house Balmain who created punk princess studded jackets with rhinestone and metal embellishments, pieces that were so stunning on their own you almost forgot they were being worn over lingerie on a supermodel.  Talk about a game changer.




Stars Harry Styles, Leslie Odom Jr., Miguel, and Chinese pianist Li Yundi rocked the runway while the models stomped to the beat in true rock-chick fashion.  Every year the VS designers up their game and this year was no exception, with the wings, thigh-high laced boots, exotic jewelry, carnivale costumes and headpieces that can only be described as decadent. 



Walking in her last show after a seventeen-year long career with VS, Alessandra Ambrosio took her final turn as an Angel to huge applause and love from her fans, as she moves on to new projects and adventures.  It’s hard to imagine the show without Alessandra, and she will be greatly missed.  The new crop of VS models some appearing in the show for the first time were star-struck walking alongside their idols like Adriana Lima, Jasmine Tookes, Sara Sampaio, Elsa Hosk, and Josephine Skriver. The fantasy bra honor went to Brazilian beauty Lais Ribero, to gasps of admiration from the audience. 



In one of the most heart-warming moments of the show Ming Xi proudly walking in front of her family and hometown stumbled on the runway, and like a true supermodel she gracefully rose, taking the hand of the sweetest of models Gizele Oliveira, and continued her walk smiling and winning the hearts and support of every person in the audience. 




The show has so many elements from supermodels, to international music artists, to extraordinary styling, that you see the whole package and not just the beautiful lingerie.  This year’s collection didn’t disappoint.  I know what’s on my Christmas list – do you?

How To Do Monochrome Makeup for the Holidays


Not every occasion calls for festive makeup, and sometimes you want your outfit to get all the attention, which makes this year’s monochrome beauty the perfect solution.  There is a palette for every complexion and so many shades to choose from, that this might just become your favorite holiday look.  If you prefer a nude palette, are timid with color, or in a hurry, then this look is the perfect solution for you.



Start by choosing a neutral to nude color palette that works with your complexion. Apply shadows, blush, contour and lips, building on the depth of the color by adding more product on top and remembering to always blend well to blur the edges.  You want to product to disappear and to shade rather than to add a lot of color.



A nude palette is equally as beautiful when it is matte or glowing so the choice is yours, and goes from day to night by simply layering more color and deepening the shades.  Adding a bit of highlighter on the top of your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and eyebrow bones will let the light catch your skin and make you not disappear in dim light.  Bonus: these will become your favorite go-to versatile shades even after the holidays are over.

Glow on! Winterizing Your Skincare Routine to Maintain Healthy, Glowing Skin


Colder temperatures, windy conditions and dry indoor heating can wreck havoc on your complexion, causing redness, dry patches, and a generally dull appearance.  The first arctic blast of the winter season has hit and the reality of “winter skin” can’t be denied any longer.  It’s time to adjust your skincare routine to treat and protect your skin now, preventing problems throughout the winter.  Skin that is well hydrated maintains its glow, is more even-toned, and holds on to makeup much better than dry skin. These skincare treats will hydrate and protect so harsh winter elements won't take a toll on your complexion.


Cleanse:  switch to products that don’t strip the skin and have gentle formulas to maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier:


Masks:  Nothing could be easier or more luxurious than simply sleeping in a treatment mask, waking to a super-hydrated, glowing complexion.  Extra benefit - it feels so nice to pamper your face with these rich cream masks:


Serums:  Serums are essential in delivering concentrated ingredients to the skin for optimum benefits.  Combat dryness with these serums applied under your moisturizer day and night:


Moisturize:  Adding a rich, hydrating creamy barrier to your skin gives the complexion a boost of glow and resilience, preventing redness, or dry skin issues:


Lip care:  Lipsticks can be drying especially in winter, and wind and indoor heating can leave our lips parched. Lips are delicate and tend to dry out more quickly in winter months, so using masks, balms, and lip treatments are the key to maintaining a color-ready pout:


Glow:  Adding glow-renewing products to your winter beauty routine will add an extra dose of protection to plump your skin.  Use gels and oils that are specifically formulated for treating dryness:

SPEAK UP: SEXUAL ASSAULT IN THE MODELING INDUSTRY


I want to write to all my readers who are models and model-hopefuls regarding the wave of women, and men, bravely coming forward and speaking out against those who abuse their power in the modeling industry. WE HEAR YOU! 

The news headlines are filled with sexual abuse allegations aimed at Hollywood powerhouses, politicians, and people in a position of power in sports, as a wave of courage sweeps across nearly every industry, exposing the abuses by those who for so long who have leveraged their power for their own sexual gratification, victimizing vulnerable young people, and rendering them silent out of fear that they will lose their dream careers if they protest.  And the modeling industry is no different. 


Model Cameron Russell has given a platform on Instagram where people could tell their own stories and relay incidences they have witnessed, models often speaking out for the first time of the sexual harassment and assault they have endured.  The response has been astounding as so many models including those at the top have come forward and publicly shared the abuse and humiliation they have suffered, using the hashtag #myjobshouldnotincludeabuse. 

Not one single model should ever be forced to be in an uncomfortable, threatening, or dangerous situation on a casting, go-see, or job – ever.  No model should feel they need to expose themselves, be touched inappropriately, be sent to an unsafe location, coerced into activities outside of actual modeling, or be made to feel that they do not have a right to speak up if such a situation arises. 

Cameron Russell has made a call to action to all industry leaders from agents, to casting directors or magazine editors to designers to brands, to stop using photographers who are known sexual predators against models.  Agents need to make it safe for models to tell them when they experience harassment and abuse, but more that that, they must be held morally accountable for sending models into the paths of these known perpetrators in the first place.

Please, if you are model or model-hopeful, know that now is the time to speak up if you have been victimized.  There is support for you and you will be heard. There are organizations who can advise you on how to get legal help, and support you in beginning the healing process for yourself.  By speaking up you will be helping to end this predatory culture, making a difference in the industry for every model in the future.  Your career depends more on taking care of yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally, than anything else.  It is a lie that the only way to succeed is to play along with the situation, and that all the big models before you had the same experience and only succeeded because they played the game.

Some of my model friends who had lengthy international careers have told me stories that are shocking, disheartening, and frightening.  It is the dirty secret of the modeling industry that to anyone actually in the industry is no secret at all, just not discussed.  But those days are over.  Hear me: OVER.

There are resources to help you report incidences to the authorities, find legal and medical assistance, mediation, and support.  You owe it to yourself to seek help and it can be as private as you need it to be.  Not seeking help victimizes you a second time.  You deserve better.  If your agent is not supportive there are organizations that will advise you, but consider the relationship you have with an agent that would not defend you or come to your aid. 


It is time to end the rampant abuse in the modeling industry.  It needs to come from the models standing up for themselves, the agents reporting these crimes and supporting their models, and for the editors, designers, clients and publishers to finally stop hiding the criminals who have had free reign in the industry for far too long. 


I SUPPORT YOU! The industry players are legally bound to create a safe workplace for models. SPEAK UP AND BE HEARD!

FREE AND DISCREET REPORTING OF QUESTIONABLE PRACTICES


Through MODEL ALLIANCE SUPPORT, we assist models with complaints about inappropriate on-the-job conduct, agent issues, or work related problems.
Sexual harassment, abuse, and assault are no part of the “creative process.” They’re against the law. No model has to tolerate any sort of unwanted or inappropriate conduct. No model has to feel pressured to undress.
Opaque accounting, unresponsive representation, one-sided agreements and payment delays are questionable practices at best, and often unacceptable.

We can help.

Safely and privately report, or request assistance with, work related problems, instances of harassment, abuse, or any such sort of unwanted or inappropriate conduct to MODEL ALLIANCE SUPPORT.
Contact us at support@modelalliance.org to report or request assistance. Although we cannot provide legal advice, if your issues require the assistance of an attorney, they will advise you accordingly and can assist you in finding one. For access to our Model Alliance Support service, be sure to sign up here.
