Glowing Tutorial

Check out this tutorial from the shoot. Let it be your guide as you achieve these perfect electric looks!

Modelology: Anastasija K’s Beauty Essentials

Newbie model Anastasija Kondratjeva was on hand as we perused denim looks for our March issue (her pick: black skinny jeans from Marc by Marc Jacobs). The Latvian-born 18-year-old stomped into the scene in 2008; inaugural shows included BCBG Max Azria, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Moschino Cheap & Chic, Hervé Léger and Marc Jacobs. That same year she closed the Antonio Marras show — and we all know closing is the new opening. Since then she’s been sharpshooting for mags like Purple, Citizen K and Brazilian Vogue. I cornered her for her beauty picks and peeves before she jetted off to do back-to-back international Fashion Weeks.

Name: Anastasija Kondratjeva DOB: June 29, 1991 Rank: Newb Stats: 5’11”, 32-24-35 Photo: Style.com Beauty Peeves: My agency bleaches my hair and eyebrows, so my hair is fried. And I have terribly sensitive skin, which you can imagine is tough when I’m getting made up every day. I need to keep my skin in great shape. Favorite Make Up: I use everything by Chanel. I love Chanel’s Inimitable Multi Dimensional Mascara, and Chanel’s Hydrating Lip Treatment called Soin Tendre Levres. I don’t really wear a lot of makeup, but I like products that condition. Skin Care Essential: I am addicted to milk cleansers to balance my oily skin, and I try all kinds. Clarins Cleansing Milk with Alpine Herbs for Dry/Normal Skin is a good one as is SkinMilk’s Foaming Facial Wash. On top of that I use cremes from my dermatologist to dry out my blemishes. My actual routine changes with whatever is going on with my skin, which is usually related to whatever is going on in my work. Exercise Routine: I run, jog, walk as much as I can between work. I try to keep a routine, but running seems to be the only thing I stick with. It’s a great release. Hair Care: My hair is bleached right now, as are my eyebrows, but I’m not worried about my brows being fried. It’s a pretty common industry ideal to use Frederic Fekkai. I use Protein RX Reparative Shampoo and Deep Nourishing Conditioner. Signature Scent: I love perfume! It’s such a pick-me-up. My scent is Miss Dior Cherie. It’s young and playful and smells sweet.
