Cindy Crawford shares her best beauty advice

And what tips she’s passing down to her daughter

Beauty Crew Contributor / May 25 2017

With her perfect voluminous hair and consistently flawless brows, Cindy Crawford has been a global beauty muse for decades. So when the supermodel spoke to Harper’s Bazaar about her favourite makeup products, beauty tips, fitness philosophy and advice she has picked up from her years in the industry, which she has passed onto her 14-year-old daughter and fellow model Kaia Gerber, we thought it necessary to take note. Here are the top tips we learnt from the supermodel:

#1 / Don’t sweat the small stuff

Her food mentality is 80-20, "That's achievable. I don't want food to be the enemy.” And she doesn’t stress if she misses a day at the gym: "If I'm working 12-hour days in Rome, I'm not getting up at six in the morning to workout. It's not going to happen, and I don't feel bad about it."

#2 / Less is more

In the overwhelming world of beauty, this philosophy is becoming more and more common. Cindy says the main lesson she is trying to pass down to her daughter is that “You look great – not your makeup.”

#3 / Keep your hair au naturel

The number one hair tip that Cindy recommends to others is to not colour your hair until you have to, letting natural colour and texture prevail for as long as possible. 

The products she loves:

Cindy credits her typical glowing makeup look to Guerlain Terracotta Skin Healthy Glow Foundation, Josie Maran Argan Color Stick for blush and Charlotte Tilbury for lipstick. “Her range is great. I don’t like foundation-y colours. I want my lips to be in the realm of natural,” she says. The model also uses Maybelline New York Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara (which isn't available, but we recommend Maybelline Great Lash Washable Mascara for the same effect), "I don't like the moulded brushes—I like the old-fashioned ones."
