Winnie Harlow shares her most important beauty tip.
The 25-year-old model doesn’t always manage to follow her own beauty tips, but has said her number one piece of advice is to make sure people take off their make-up at the end of every day and wash their face before climbing into bed.
Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, she said: “My biggest beauty secret is do as I say, not as I do … Wash your face before you go to bed every night.”
As the festive season approaches, Harlow plans to up her skincare routine and give her face a break from makeup, so that her complexion can be “healthy and glowy” by the time she heads back to work in the new year.
She added: “I’m hoping to not be wearing that much makeup over the holidays and just be with family and friends and come back to work refreshed with my skin all healthy and glowy.”
And when it comes to fashion, the beauty likes to keep things as comfortable as possible, as she would rather wear boots than heels, even on a night out.
She explained: “My sense of style is one of two things. It’s either super glam or super relaxed. There’s no in-between.
“I think Levi’s are classic and I feel like everyone has a pair in their closet. While a heel looks amazing, I’d rather go for a bootie, so it’s comfortable but still sexy … I try to slip in comfort everywhere.”
Meanwhile, Harlow — who suffers from vitiligo, which is characterized by depigmentation of the skin — announced earlier this year that she hopes to release her own beauty line next year.
She said: “I have a lot of ideas I would like to bring to the forefront. When I do swatches, if I’m trying to figure out a shade for someone else, I do them between [my patches] so I have a really good take on what works for different skin tones because of this thing that I’ve been blessed with.
“So you may see something in the new year.”
