Winnie Harlow grew up obsessed with beauty products and make-up thanks to her cosmetologist mother Lisa Brown.
In a new interview with Allure, the model discussed her top skincare formulas and must-have cosmetics, and also revealed that she has an abundance of goods from a variety of brands because she’s always been a huge fan of beauty.
“I have so many products, because not only have I always loved products, but my mom’s a hairdresser,” Winnie explained. “She’s a certified cosmetologist, so I have always been around a lot of hair products, and she has always been obsessed with skin products. I used to buy a lot of products, and I’d test them out, see if I liked them.”
She also confessed she wanted to give beauty tutorials on YouTube a try when she was younger.
“I wanted to be a YouTuber when I was, like, 17, so I always (sit) in the bathroom by myself and talk to my ‘audience’ in the mirror. Be like, ‘OK, so now we’re going to go in with this BB cream.’ Yeah, I do all that,” the 25-year-old laughed.
Elsewhere in the chat, the Canadian beauty listed some of her favourite mascaras and revealed that she’s been a recent convert to Jessica Alba’s Honest Beauty brand.
“I love mascaras that have the spiky wand, because I feel like those give you the most length. You could use Benefit They’re Real (mascara), but They’re Real is for if you’re going to a wedding and you know you’re going to be crying, because that s**t does not come off,” Winnie quipped. “I’ve been trying to look for a mascara that has a similar wand, and I was looking online and saw Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara had a good brush. I got it, and it’s nice. It makes my lashes look like I have extensions, I think.”
