During fashion month, time is scarce and stress runs high. And yet, Dutch supermodel and mother of two Doutzen Kroes stayed as calm, cool, and collected as can be, even pausing for a brief interlude during Paris Fashion Week to offer Vogue a glance into her newly evolved beauty regimen. “You know, you take advantage of having anything good in your life and my skin has always been good,” explains the 34-year-old beauty. “But obviously I’m aging and want to take care of it, so I age beautifully.”
Beginning with skincare, Kroes delicately taps hydrating elixir onto the under-eye area. “I started doing this maybe a year ago — way too late” she laughs. “But here we go, giving a good example to the young ones out there!” After slathering on moisturizer, she gives herself a circulation-boosting facial massage, gently kneading two fingers along the jawline and cheekbones. “When you do this, it drains all the water out of your face, so it’s really good to do in the morning,” she explains. “When I do this, I feel like I have a less puffy face.”
For coverage, Kroes taps on concealer to obscure under-eye bags, then saturates her face in a veil of L’Oréal Infallible Fresh Wear 24 HR Foundation. “I use my hands because it warms it up and really massages it in,” she says. “This is a tip I actually got from Pat McGrath, she would just blend it like [she was doing] a face massage. I feel like it’s a really good way of making it look natural.” Making sure she doesn’t miss a spot, she spreads the foundation down to her neck (“It’s your second face!” she says), and taps more concealer on the ears and along the hairline with a Beautyblender before swirling bronzer into the hollows of the cheeks to lightly contoured effect.
“This is something my children freak out when I do,” says Kroes while curling her lashes with Charlotte Tilbury’s Life Changing Lashes Eyelash Curler. “They do watch me put on my makeup and my daughter loves it. She wants to do it too, but she’s too young. She loves it more than I do!” Then, with a jet-black eyeliner pencil, she tightlines between her upper lashes and smudges out towards the outer corners of her blue gaze. “It makes the eye shape more almond instead of round,” she says. “These are the kind of tricks you learn when you’re a model.”
Taking her mascara wand out of the tube, she wipes off the tip with a tissue to get rid of clumps before coating her lashes in the inky pigment. Then, after a few strokes of Laura Mercier’s Eyebrow Pencil and smack of lip balm, she dabs her middle finger on the doe tip applicator of her bright fuchsia lip stain and presses it lightly into the mouth for a diffused wash of color. Taking down her lush blonde mane ahead of her evening out, she blows a kiss and says goodbye in her native Dutch, “Doei!
