Today, it’s hard to imagine the world of fashion since the late 1980’s without Christy Turlington. Her iconic beauty has appeared on thousands of magazine covers — from Vogue to TIME and everything in between.
Christy Turlington Burns was just 13 years old when she was “discovered” riding her horse after school. She never expected that that fateful day would result in a decades long career as a model. Christy moved to New York after graduating from High School in California in 1987 and has made it her home ever since. She joined the Maybelline family at the age of 22 and continues to represent that brand today.
I sincerely feel that beauty largely comes from within.
Though Metropolitan Museum of Art even called her the “Face of the 20th Century,” Christy Turlington is so much more than that. The NYU graduate, activist, yogi, entrepreneur and mother of two defines what it means to be a Maybelline It Girl. So what’s her secret?
After digging through Turlington’s beauty kit, we discovered a few of her favorite makeup essentials. Lash Sensational Luscious — For a full fan effect, Turlington sweeps a coat of the fresh liquid formula to capture lashes and achieve a smoldering runway look.
Color Sensational Lip Color — When your every day is about getting glam, sometimes a little luxury is dressing down. For the off duty model look, Turlington sports jeans, a t-shirt and a creamy coat of lipstick. This lip color makes it easy to look sensationally sexy, while wearing nothing at all.
Instant Age Rewind Eraser Makeup Treatment — Throwback Thursday is just another day for Turlington thanks to this little anti-aging secret. The easy application and collagen enhanced formula erases dark circles and fine lines.
Turlington glances in the makeup mirror thoughtfully. Her inner IT girl shines right back and she smiles to herself.
It’s clear that yoga, healthy living, quiet time and an insatiable curiosity to learn and grow have made her beautiful — inside and out.
Or, as Turlington puts it:
“A women’s life has to be more than one dimensional. How I feel is always more important that how I think I look to others.”
