American fashion model Karlie Kloss is self-admittedly a Christmas addict, and her Instagram account seems to confirm that addiction! Karlie Kloss’ Instagram is packed full of photos showing Kloss Christmas shopping, tangled in Christmas decorations, and showing her tips on holiday prep—including how to apply holiday makeup.
Kloss recently posted a new holiday video on her Instagram. The video shows a holiday ready Kloss primping for her Christmas party, wearing a stunning green velvet dress while checking her makeup and putting on her Swarovski crystal jewelry. The advertisement was captioned, “how I prep for a holiday party✨ Hint: it includes lots of @swarovski 💍 with a healthy dose of 🍪.” Another one of Kloss’ Instagram posts show the 24-year-old model getting a little holiday shopping done at the new Adidas NYC 5th Avenue store. Why does the star love posting on Instagram so much?
InStyle magazine recently caught up with Kloss who quoted, “I love Instagram because it’s an easy way to share where you are and what you’re doing, while also getting a glimpse into other people’s worlds. A picture is worth a thousand words, which is much more than I can articulate through 140 characters!”
Karlie Kloss on Skin Care and Makeup
After being declared as one of the top models of the 2000s by Vogue Paris, and being named as the L’Oréal Paris spokesmodel, Karlie Kloss should know a thing or two about makeup and skin care. After being worked on by several the top makeup artists in the world, the model has picked up a few beauty tips, and is happy to share them with her followers on Instagram and YouTube.
One of her most watched videos on YouTube is a tutorial recreating her look for the Met Gala. Backstage, Kloss says she learned “how to apply makeup with my hands. I know how to use the right amount of pressure, and if I use a tool, it’s always the Beauty Blender. Most of my go-to products have a creamy texture, and that sponge works great for blending the formulas in a natural-looking way.”
But Kloss isn’t all glamour all the time, as she told InStyle magazine, “Well…because I have my hair and makeup done quite a bit when I’m working, I like to keep it very simple. I shower, wash and condition my hair, then let it air dry. I cleanse and moisturize my skin. For makeup, I just use a BB cream, a bit of cream blush, a swipe of liquid liner, a flick of mascara, and I’m good to go. This literally takes 6 minutes, if that.” When Karlie Kloss isn’t modeling or posting makeup tips on social media, she is taking care of her body though diet and exercise.
She loves running, being outdoors, and doing Pilates. She believes in indulging, but likes to make things with healthier alternatives, and that is why her cookie company, Karlie’s Kookies, was born. The supermodel teamed up with chef Christina Tosi to create the gluten-free, dairy-free snack that has proceeds of its sales providing meals for children in New York City and around the world though FEED Projects. These cookies sound like the perfect snack to have around this holiday season!
