Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who was named Harper’s Bazaar Businesswoman of the Year, isn’t afraid of aging. The 24-year-old beauty said age brings her true confidence and beauty. We can’t say that we’ve ever heard a model say that before!
“Oh I’m excited, I can’t wait to turn 30, I feel so grown up! One of the things I see with women who are older than me is how confident they are within their skin, how they’ve grown and how they have so much experience in life,” she said to Daily Mail.
She is a former Victoria’s Secret angel and is is one of the most in-demand models in the world right now. She has been the face of top brands like Burberry, co-starred in Hollywood blockbusters such as the Transformers series, and has been in advertisement campaigns for brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, and Bvlgari.
Despite her amazing success (arguably due to her beauty), she isn’t afraid to hit a certain age, and appears to have a very mature way of looking at her life after modelling.
“Who looks forward to their boobs sagging and bum going flat?! No one! I hope by that point there will be other things that really matter,” she said.
Huntington, who is engaged to actor Jason Statham, has always looked forward to getting older, and believes in using her time wisely and not wasting it on unimportant things. She’s aware of her career’s shelf life and realizes that nothing lasts forever.
“You have to build something for yourself from it. Looks go and you fade. Modelling is short lived,” said Rosie, who recently started her own lingerie line.
“I wanted something for when I want to take a back seat. There’ll be a brand that I’ll be sitting at the helm of and enjoying. This is really the start of something I see as a long-term thing.”
Here are some of Rosie’s best tips.
“Look after your skin. There’s no point putting on loads of makeup if you’re not investing in healthy skin so it’s really about working out which products work for you,” said Huntington in a Harper’s Bazaar interview. “It can take time and trial and error and, believe me, I’ve been through it all,” she added.
The Transformers star’s go-to skin care products are by IS Clinical, Resurface by Shani Shani Darden, and facials with LightStim, which evaporate fine lines, dark circles, and acne scars.
Huntington doesn’t believe in using a lot of makeup, but does indulge in the necessities whenever she’s out or working. Her choice of makeup would be Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, laura Mercier Rosebud blush, and YSL Babydoll mascara.
Along with practicing an organic diet, Huntington can be found working out in order to keep herself fit and give her the “pick me up” she needs, when she’s tired.
“You should always try and listen to your body – often, when I am really tired and I go and train hard, I’ll pull a muscle, so now I try and make sure I just do some yoga and some stretching, she said.”
