Professional model Monet Huie talks us through her beauty routine from sun-up to sun-down…

Monet Huie has us fascinated with her versatile look - read about her beauty routine below!

 

Morning

When I wake up in the morning I wash my face and use a daily facial wash from SIMPLE. I then moisturise using CHARLOTTE TILBURY’s Magic Cream, or sunscreen! I like to use sunscreen as it’s very moisturising and also protects my skin at the same time. 

I usually wet my hair in the shower, then use my L’OREAL Elvive Extraordinary Oil (£5.99) and put that throughout my hair, leaving a little bit in. I then use CANTU Coconut Curling Cream (£7.99), and the CANTU Twist and Lock Gel (£6.99) as they keep my curls defined and bouncy throughout the day! I've changed the way I care for my hair by getting regular trims and using castor oil. The regular cutting helps my hair to grow and stay healthy, preventing split ends. Meanwhile, the castor oil ensures that my hair grows strongly.

Makeup wise, on a day-to-day basis I will just use my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (£24) to cover up any blemishes, along with some mascara. If I’m going ‘out out’ then I probably use every makeup product invented! (I have full makeup routine details on my YOUTUBE channel, which is called Monet Huie.) My favourite fragrance is the original CHLOE perfume (£47), as it’s got a really fresh smell!

 

Midday

During the day I will carry around my lip balm and top-up throughout the morning and afternoon. Sometimes I will also bring my LAURA MERCIER Translucent Loose Setting Powder (£29) and use that throughout the day as I have very oily skin! I think my desert island beauty product would have to be concealer, as it can cover any blemishes plus create a natural glow.

Since becoming a model I have started wearing less makeup as I usually get it done on photo shoots. This has been a good thing as now when I get the time to do my makeup properly it’s quite exciting! The best piece of beauty advice I have received is that everyone should mix their foundation shades. I was told that it’s rare to find one foundation that is your exact match, so it’s always best to mix!

 

PM

If I'm going out at night, I prefer to take my makeup off and start again, as I like to feel fresh! Recently I’ve been particularly impressed by the TOO FACED “Better than Sex” Mascara. When I wear it I get so many compliments asking if my lashes are real. My bedtime skincare routine is removing my makeup with wipes, and then using a SIMPLE Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash (£3.99) and Toner (£1.50). I then use my CLINIQUE Moisture Surge Overnight Mask (£27.90). This product is amazing and I always wake up with clear and glowing skin.
