As you've flipped through the pages of any glossy, it's likely you've wondered how the models achieve that lit-from-within glow. Sure, it might be a product of drinking lots of water or whatever other meh beauty tip we're used to hearing. But, we've always had a feeling there's more to it. Luckily, when we recently chatted with Hungarian model Vanessa Axente, the newest face of Calvin Klein's Endless Euphoria fragrance, she came right out and told us how she gets that radiance. And, it's totally not what we were expecting.
"I put clear lip balm on my cheekbones," she says. Her product of choice? Chanel's Rouge Coco Baume, a high-gloss, super-moisturizing lippie. Axente dabs it right on her bare skin and then follows it with a touch of blush — or not, depending on how natural she wants to look. This pop of clear gloss catches the light, highlighting her cheekbones and creating that enviable glow.
So, there's the story, folks. We might not be able to replicate her killer bone structure on our faces, but we can definitely steal this little tip.
