Supermodel Karlie Kloss was named the face of Estée Lauder in 2018, something she claimed was a dream come true. “My entire career, having a beauty contract has been at the top of my bucket list,” she shared at the time. “From the very start, my list of career dreams always included “Cover of American Vogue” and “Estée Lauder beauty contract.'” But even if she had been named the ambassador of one of the biggest beauty brands in the world, her concept of beauty is not superficial. “I also want to say that beauty is not always about being frivolous or vain,” she added. “Beauty and fashion allow for self-expression — they have the power to make you feel like your best self by inspiring confidence and individuality, and that should not be undervalued.”
Outside of work, Kloss admitted that she’s not a fan of putting on too much makeup and instead developed what she calls a “uniform” on her days off. “I do a light coat of mascara, BB cream, a little bit of concealer on a spot, lip balm, spray perfume, and I run out the door. I really keep it simple,” she told Elle. “I feel most confident when I wear more minimal makeup and that beauty and confidence comes from the inside. So whatever you can do for yourself to really nurture that, that’s when you really look your best.” Judging by the candid picture above, it’s safe to say she can bypass the makeup altogether and still look gorgeous.
