Lindsay Ellingson Reveals Her Makeup Application Tips

Posted by PZ on October 1st, 2020


Top model and Victoria’s Secret Angel Lindsay Ellingson recently launched her own makeup line named Wander Beauty, inspired by her many years of travel. The model’s vibrant colour palette is also influenced by her time on the catwalk when having “a healthy flush” was a big beauty trend. She explained how she sourced her ideas for the new makeup collection:

“I fell in love with St. Tropez a long time ago; I’ve been there many times for work and fun. In the village, you see these different shades of coral so that’s what inspired this color. As for the soft pink, when I entered the fashion industry the doll look was very much in, and Gemma Ward was the top model. I remember always having a healthy flush on our cheeks like this.”

Sharing her favourite makeup application tips, Lindsay comments that before she applies her foundation, she likes to give her face a massage. She begins by using some oil on her cheeks and aims to improve the circulation of her face, which she thinks makes her skin look more fresh and vibrant. She also advises applying blush before foundation for a more subtle colour:

“A great tip before applying makeup is to give yourself an amazing face massage. Just massage your cheeks with an oil. Really, really massaging your face just brings your skin to life. It starts the circulation going and makeup will apply so much better on skin that’s really moisturized. You just look like you’re glowing already once you give yourself that massage—I think there’s actually this thing called face yoga where you can exercise it. Another great tip is to apply blush before your foundation. It will make it look much more natural, more like it’s a part of you than looking like makeup.”
