It’s safe to say that fashion models know a thing or two about cosmetics. As the first to test out every product and every look known to mankind models get their beauty straight from the source and throughout their careers pick up a wealth of knowledge. As a result some of the very best beauty products found their start in lines developed and created in collaboration with well-known models. Take a look at our selection for the very best from model cosmetic lines.
Foundation – Iman
As the first supermodel to jump into the beauty business Iman began with the goal of creating cosmetics for women of all colors. Iman Cosmetics’ foundations, bb creams and concealers offer a spectacular range of shades in darker colors, many of which are difficult to find from other beauty brands. The spectrum of colors offered is matched by the selection of formulations and coverage options – making Iman’s line a must for anyone in need of the perfect base.
Moisturizer – Miranda Kerr
The all-natural skincare market was in need of a touch of glamour when Miranda Kerr began her line Kora back in 2009. Since then Kerr’s certified organic products have developed a reputation for being simple, reliable and just plain good —what more can you ask from skincare? Our favorite is the gentle Hydrating Day and Night Creme.
Fragrance – Anja Rubik
Much has been said about Anja Rubik’s journey from top model to perfumer, but all you really need to know is that her airy green tea and lily combo smells wonderful. Rubik’s first scent has become a smash hit (and is frequently sold out at Net-A-Porter, Colette and the other exclusive boutiques where it is featured) so it’s only a matter of time before she gives the world another fragrant gift.
Eyes – Josie Maran
Josie Maran is the argan oil queen now and forever, but her popular label also boasts a range of enticing color cosmetics in addition to her skincare offerings. Maran’s watercolor shadows, brow duos and Argan Black Oil Mascara offer a pop of color and adhere to her luxury with a conscious tagline by being paraben free, cruelty free and packaged in recycled materials.
Though they have yet to launch their own beauty brands, superstars Doutzen Kroes and Liya Kebede have collaborated with L’Oreal for their own signature lipsticks. As part of the the L’Oreal Colllection Privee and Exclusive Reds line each contributed their own perfect nude and fiery crimson. Doutzen crafted an appealingly bright baby pink, while Liya went sophisticated with a deep wine color.
