Whitney Port This works for me

American TV star, fashion designer and author Whitney Port took time out of her hectic schedule to tell us about her signature beauty look, hair plans and the secrets behind those never-ending legs...

Make-Up Faves...

‘Tinted moisturiser is a make-up bag essential of mine as it gives a gorgeous, subtle coverage and makes my skin feel silky and soft. I apply mascara for big, beautiful lashes and blusher makes me feel pretty in pink. I also love a statement nail with lots of shine.’ We love Guerlain Fall Collection Blush Madame Rougit , Benefit You Rebel SPF15 Tinted Moisturiser and Sally Hansen Nail Colour .

My Muse...

‘My beauty superheroes are the 90’s supermodels like Christy Turlington and Claudia Schiffer. They are just so classically beautiful. This is the aesthetic women should strive for as they are gorgeous but still womanly and healthy-looking.’

Hair Plans...

‘Right now I’m trying to grow my hair as long as I can while trying to keep it healthy. I just went and got some highlights put in the front but the rest is my regular sandy-ish, golden colour. I wish I could be a little more daring!’

Tip

‘It’s an oldie but a goodie, always cleanse, tone and moisturise before bed. Toner is important because it nourishes your skin and prepares it for moisturising.’

LA Beauty News...

‘For a Los Angeles sun-kissed glow, I love mixing shimmer oil in with my body moisturiser. I also apply gold sparkle to my eyes for extra radiance.’ Try Nuxe Dry Oil Golden Shimmer .

‘I exfoliate my body daily with a loofah and then use a thicker moisturiser to help replenish my skin.’

Body Secrets...

‘I hit the gym regularly and go to a spinning class three or four times a week. I also love hiking at the weekends, which keeps me in great shape.’

Mum Knows Best...

‘My mum always told me to not spray perfume directly on my neck as it has alcohol in it and will accelerate the aging process. We were also taught to use eye cream from a very early age.’

Face Facts...

‘I love Olay’s Complete Care Moisturiser . It gives my skin everything it needs, plus it gives an instant glow. I also love to have facials. I think they’re so important for my skin and I try and have one monthly. No matter what state I’m in I always take my make-up off before bed. If I’m feeling lazy I’ll use wipes but I try and stick to my full cleansing routine.’

Perfect Legs...

‘My secret to great legs is the new Venus & Olay Razor . It contains Olay’s moisture-boosting gel bars which leave my skin smooth and glowing and the five blades give such a close shave. I always have one in my wash bag for those last-minute touch-ups. It makes me confident my legs are going to be gorgeous and preened.’

Self-Confessed Fashionista...

‘Fashion Week is a great opportunity to show off your personal style. I always keep an eye on the styles that grace the front row. I personally opt for a simple but sleek short skirt or dress and heels. I keep my hair and make-up simple as I don’t want to fuss with it while I'm dashing between the shows and going backstage.’

NYC vs. LA...

‘I definitely have a more low key look in LA. I like wearing jeans and a T-shirt or a cute dress and boots, whereas in New York I dress up a bit more and wear darker colours. I was there recently and I wore black pyjama trousers, a striped long-sleeve tee, snakeskin jacket and little black booties. I’d wear something brighter and more casual in LA.’

‘I love wearing wine coloured lips in New York and fresh skin with peachy cheeks and glossy lips in LA.’

Signature Scent...

‘My all-time favourite fragrance is Hugo Boss Nuit Pour Femme . It smells so feminine and I love spritzing it behind my ears and on my wrists for an instant confidence-boost.’

Diet Tips...

‘In terms of diet I just enjoy everything in moderation. I try and stick to a big salad with lots of protein for lunch with chicken and vegetables in the evening. One indulgence I wouldn't give up is fries! There’s a place in my hometown that does the best rotisserie chicken and fries.’
