A Model Recommends: The Skincare Irish Models Won’t Leave Home Without

With access to the best make-up artists and skincare gurus, models know what's up. Here's what they use on their own time.


Shoots, shows, early mornings, late nights and tons of travel: a model’s skin goes through it all, so they’re in the know about what to use on it as a result. Here’s how four top Irish girls cope. Hint: they really, really love Clarins.

Li Ann Small says the trick to keeping her skin in check is getting into a routine. “I cleanse, tone and moisturise. If I’ve any spots or blemishes, a bit of tea tree oil reduces them in no time. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo, €17.99, keeps spots away, evens out skintone and gets rid of marks or scars. It’s amazing!”

Travel’s a stressor for Thalia Heffernan. “I prep skin using Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment, €58.95, before I head to a shoot or a show. It really helps to keep skin hydrated throughout the day. My must-have is Clarins Blue Orchid Oil, €39.50. It’s such a beautiful product and adds a beautiful sheen to skin and is super moisturising.”

“For me, it’s just very simple,” says Danielle Winckworth. “Making sure I cleanse and moisturise every morning and night, and I find when I drink a lot of water my skin looks and feels great. I also like to exfoliate once a week. My everyday must-have skincare product is Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel, €23. To wash it off, I always use a face cloth to make sure skin is super clean.”

“When I finish a shoot or show I try to take off my make-up as soon as possible to let my skin breathe. I don’t like the feeling of having a full face of make-up,” reveals Teodora Sutra. “The main thing for me is to cleanse and moisturise morning and evening. I use mostly La Roche-Posay and Clarins products, and Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, €28.80, is my favorite beauty product.”
