Alyssa Miller favours products she can apply in under five minutes.
The 24-year-old model prefers a natural look when she isn’t working for the likes of Victoria’s Secret. As she spends so much time in the make-up artist’s chair on-set, in her spare time she likes to keep things much more straightforward.
“My beauty regime is really simple. If I can apply it with my fingers in five minutes, that’s perfect. I use products by Dermalogica and Cetaphil moisturiser. I also love Benefit’s They’re Real! mascara and RMS Beauty organic make-up,” she told British magazine Marie Claire. “I’m very sensitive to scent, though, so I tend to just dab a little lavender oil on my wrists.”
When it comes to exercise Alyssa is less easy-going. She is happy to give any workout trend a go and currently enjoys ballet and boxing sessions.
Clothes wise, the star tends to get inspired by pieces her heroes have worn.
“I look to the past, when people dressed up more. Women like Bianca Jagger and Jane Birkin really knew how to play with the androgynous look in the ’70s,” she explained.
“I collect lingerie. I love Intimissimi’s high-waisted pieces, because they have a vintage feel that’s sexy but elegant.”
Although she understands looking after her body is part of her job, the model doesn’t take things too seriously. She allows herself to indulge when she feels like it and has even joked that her dream meal is anything but healthy.
“My last meal would be pizza and pasta. Having said that, I’m making a lot of healthy quinoa and lentil dishes at the moment. I love sushi at Blue Ribbon – it’s my go-to restaurant – but the perfect romantic evening is staying in, cooking a meal together and sharing a bottle of wine,” she said.
The star is recently thought to have split from her boyfriend of six months Jake Gyllenhaal.
