FOREVER STUNNING MODEL MARIA GREGERSEN, SHARES HER BEAUTY FAVES, GIVES ADVISE TO YOUNG MODELS, PLUS MORE
Meet Maria Gregersen, 33 years old and still one of Denmark’s most busy models. Maria isn’t just a pretty face, next to her job flying around the world modelling she soon has a degree in law. She’s also one of the most professional models I’ve ever met, always sweet, nails, skin and hair perfect simply a delight to work with!
Maria has been so kind to reveal some of her beauty secrets to staying stunning after nearly 2 decades of modelling and she’s giving her best advise to young models, plus more, and it’s all right here,
Q: What’s the best thing about modeling?
A: All the traveling. You get to see amazing places around the world that you wouldn’t normally get to see. I been to so many great places.
Q: What are the best beauty tips you’ve gotten through your work as a model?
A: Never plug your eyebrows – or if you do, do as little as possible. Natural eyebrows is the most beautiful thing… Also the art of highlighting and shading. It forms the face and gives it glow. I use Tom Fords shading since it has both.
Q: You have such amazing skin – what is your secret?
A: Well, don’t do to much on your skin and never use strong tonics and cleansers. I try to do as little as possible, so the skin gets to breathe and produce natural oil. I clean my skin with Bioderma every night and morning, then I use a serum from Africology and a moisturizer from Sisley.
Q: Who are your style/beauty icons?
A: I like natural and effortless beauty like Sienna Miller and Gisèle.
Q: Name 3 products you couldn’t live without? A: Africology oxygen serum, Bioderma, Bumble & bumble prep spray.
Q: What is the craziest job you’ve been on? A: Shooting 14 days in north of Finland (Lapland) in minus 20 degrees for a French cashmere campaign. The job involved riding with reindeers, flying in an air ballon over the glazier, ice skating on a frozen lake, ice fishing, driving snowmobile, and I got to see northern lights almost every night. That is something that you don’t get to see every day, and a experience I won’t forget!…
Q: What is your best advise to young models? A: Get a sense of what is right and wrong and stay true to that. You will meet a lot of people who will try to convince you otherwise, but always believe in yourself. You know best and you know your limits.
Q: How do you keep so damn fit? A: I try to get a small routine done every other day. It is only 20 min, but it works well. I found that it is better for me working out a few times a week – instead of one big workout, because I often don’t get it done then.
The latest cover I did with Maria for Eurowoman, see what products I used in the blog post here. I hope you enjoyed this little Q&A, I’m difinitly going to try that Africology oxygen serum and I’m so with Maria on the short but frequent fitness program.
