“I’ve learned so many great hair and makeup tips backstage at shows,” says Lopez, seen here working the catwalk at the 2008 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. “The best makeup tip, though, is to always do your eyes first. That way, you can really play with eyeshadow and liner without worrying about messing up the rest of your look.”
Lopez jet-sets all over the world, but always keeps her tried-and-true beauty faves in her handbag. “I always have CK One ($12.99) with me…it leaves me feeling fresh and sophisticated,” she says. “Also, I always have MAC Mineralize Skinfinish ($27) in my purse, which looks so natural and is perfect for touch-ups. I use chapstick for day, but at night I always carry a MAC Lustreglass lip gloss ($14).”
From flatiron overkill to backstage back-combing, Fashion Week is hell on Lopez’s locks. “My hair does go through a lot,” she says. “I’m always careful with how I treat it on my off-days. It’s worth it to splurge on moisturizing hair care products.” Try Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Conditioner ($24).
Sessilee’s impeccable complexion is no accident—the supermodel is diligent about her skin regimen. “It’s all about exfoliating a few times a week and moisturizing daily,” she says. “Also, I wash my face with Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate ($14). I’m a little OCD when it comes to keeping my skin healthy!”
“I’m still building as a model, but the biggest moment of my career so far was shooting ‘The Black Issue’ for Italian Vogue,” says Lopez, seen here on Tuleh’s Spring 2010 runway. “Working with a tremendously talented photographer like Stephen Meisel, and being featured on the cover with Naomi and Liya truly changed my career.”
