With New York Fashion Week in full swing, model Winnie Harlow is here to share the ultimate afterparty look, and her Vogue makeup tutorial includes a few skincare secrets that are too good not to try. Despite having to don numerous beauty looks as part of her career, Harlow has a couple tricks up her sleeve to keep her skin looking fresh and clean.
"We have to create looks," she advised. "We gotta do runway and all that, and your skin isn't made for makeup but prep the skin and prepare it for war."
Harlow's first tip involves using the Clarisonic Mia Smart Face Sculptor Skincare Set (£185) on her face every other day, so as not to over-exfoliate her skin. Twice a month, Harlow will also mix together a combination of manuka honey, Aztec clay, and apple cider vinegar until it takes on a paste-like consistency and apply the homemade face mask with a fork.
After the mask dries (about 20 minutes), she rinses off and uses a variety of products to create a fresh-faced and versatile makeup look worthy of a NYFW afterparty. Some of the products Harlow uses include the Avene Hydrance Optimale Light Hydrating Cream (£10), Nivea Q10 plus Anti-Wrinkle Night Care Cream (£7), Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealer (£24), MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot Eye Shadow (£16.50), KKW x Winnie Eye Shadow Palette (£40), Huda Beauty's Obsessions Eye Shadow Palette (£25), and Fenty Beauty Sun Stalk'r Instant Warmth Bronzer in Caramel Cutie (£23). When it comes to lip liners, she often switches between Mac Lip Pencil in Chestnut (£15) or Charlotte Tillbury Lip Cheat Liner in Foxy Brown (£16).
The model later reveals that she applies Visene eye drops to the white parts of her skin to reduce any redness that might appear. As a friendly reminder, Harlow also points out that you should always be sure to blend your real lashes with your falsies when applying mascara.
