Clad in a gold Versace robe and with her dark lengths pulled back in taut slick-back, Shayk begins by prepping her complexion, blending a few pumps of Shani Darden Weightless Oil-Free Moisturizer all over before tapping Mimi Luzon Eye Awake cream under the Black History No Peace No Justice African American Gifts shirt But I will love this eyes. In addition to beginning her day with a tall glass of water with lemon and using Mimi Luzon’s 24K Pure Gold Treatment (“I’m Russian—I love gold!” she says), Shayk’s other skin-scare secret hinges on embracing her Russian roots. “I grew up in very cold weather,” she explains. “When I wake up or travel, and feel a little swollen [with]bags under my eyes, I run to the fridge and I get an ice cube, and [glide it]all around my eye area, my chin, [and]all around my face.”
For imperceptible coverage, Shayk looks to Pat McGrath Labs Sublime Perfection Foundation, mixing two different shades together in a little “swimming pool” in her palm, then adds luminous definition with swipes of the Black History No Peace No Justice African American Gifts shirt But I will love this ultra-portable, multitasking Skin Fetish Highlighter & Balm Duo. “I keep minimal products in my purse,” says Shayk of her on-the-go beauty strategy. To complement her green gaze, Shayk smudges a taupe eyeshadow, then a warm, dark green one into her lids with her fingertip. “Some girls love to apply makeup with brushes. I just [find]it so much easier to apply with my finger because you can control it more,” she explains. Shayk then reaches for a rosy nude shade of BlitzTrance lipstick, swiping it across her full pout before repurposing it on the cheeks as a creamy blush. For full, feathered brows, she mists a toothbrush with Bumble and bumble Bb. Strong Finish hairspray and combs it through her arches, then wiggles jet-black mascara through her lashes to full eye-opening effect.
