It's been a long time since I first spoke with Hana Soukupová, the Czech model who's one of the most in-demand people. While backstage at the Victoria's Secret fashion show, I had a few seconds to talk beauty with her (and of course, Fab got her fashion thoughts).
Even though Hana is about to turn 23, she looks like she could pass for 14. Her delicate facial features are small, and she has a charming girlishness to her. To find out about her beauty routine, and to see a collection of modeling photos, read more
Do you wear a lot of makeup when you're not working?
When I'm not working, it depends. If I go to a party or event, of course I wear makeup; I like to wear a very smoky eye and glowy, natural makeup. Sometimes I wear red lipstick, sometimes I don't wear lipstick. It depends on how I feel and which mood I'm in. But when I don't work or it's just a regular day, I wear mascara and a little bit of eye shadow.
Do you have any favorite makeup brands?
I love Nars. Chanel is my favorite one. For mascara, I love Maybelline.
You have really pretty skin. [It's true! She does!] What do you do to take care of it?
You know, just regular washing. (Laughs.)
You models always say, "Oh, I don't do anything!"
Yeah, I just wash my face every night and keep it clean. Another thing, for example, if you don't clean your face after—I don't know, from an event—and you don't clean it really well, of course you're going to get bad skin the next day. So you have to really be regular in cleaning every night after you come back home.
What was the moment when you first felt beautiful?
I guess when I went into fashion.
Before that, you didn't know?
I didn't know. You know, I'm from a small town in Czech Republic, and I never thought I could do this, you know? It was like something untouchable for me.
