ModelCo recently teamed up with supermodel-turned-fashion designer extraordinaire Gail Elliott, to produce an exclusive collaboration in partnership with her contemporary women’s clothing brand, Little Joe Woman by Gail Elliott.
The three-piece collection was chosen by Gail based on her favourite ModelCo products and these that complimented the current Little Joe Woman by Gail Elliott Spring/Summer 15′ collection.
With her ‘less is more’ beauty mantra, and a namesake collection that ticks all the boxes for a relaxed, yet glamorous summer wardrobe, Gail Elliott is the epitome of effortless summer beauty.
Tell us why you chose the products you did for the ModelCo x Little Joe Woman collaboration?
I chose these particular products because they are ones I use everyday, they’re long lasting, great quality, they work well for me and my lifestyle and so I wanted to share them with my Little Joe Woman by Gail Elliott contemporary women’s clothing customers and ModelCo customers.
Who is your beauty icon and why?
I don’t have one beauty icon but admire many women for their strength, style and natural beauty. People like Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Yasmin Le Bon (model) Heidi Middleton (former designer of Sass & Bide) Christy Turlington, Karin Upton-Baker (Managing Director of Hermes Australia)
What is your go-to make up look and why?
For day I use very little make up – I define my eyebrows with a brown powder shadow, smudge the same colour under and across my top eyelid and add ModelCo Power Lash mascara. I use concealer under my nose and on my chin if I’m looking a little red. I line the rims of my eyelids with a light beige / white pencil to make them appear brighter and finish with a beige lipstick and a slick of ModelCo gloss. For evening I pretty much do the same but go a little heavier with eye make-up and more mascara.
What are your favourite ModelCo products and why?
My favourite ModelCo products are Lip Lacquer in Creme Brulee and in Viva because I love the shades and they are long-lasting. Eye Define Liquid Liner because it’s easy to use and is a strong black colour. The newDouble Sided facial wipes because I can have a packet in my bag when I travel to refresh during a flight or during the day if I’m in an exotic country, Hair Mascara in dark brown for in-between salon visits and theReplenishing Rose Mist because it smells amazing and feels so fresh and cool when I spritz it onto my face and hair at the beach.
Three beauty essentials you can’t leave home without when I travel and why?
1. Lip gloss – I always have at least three in my bag.
2. A bottle of water – It’s so important for my skin & body to be hydrated.
3. The Super Elixir – An alkalising greens supplement made by by Welleco and Elle Macpherson because I like to keep my body in a more alkalising than acidic state, for optimum health.
What is your signature hairstyle and why?
I guess my signature hairstyle is a straight blow-dry. My hair is naturally slightly wavy but it feel more professional and ‘put together’ when my hair is blow dried straight.
On a bad hair day, what do you do?
Don’t look in the mirror!
Signature scent and why…
I have two signature scents – Chanel No. 19 for day and Tom Ford Tobacco Vanilla for night.
Favourite lipstick shade and why…
My favourite lipstick shade is a neutral beige which I use under a beige gloss. My lips are quite deep in colour and I like the look of a beige lip and a darker sexy eye.
What are your must-have items for summer?
My must-have items for summer are a St. Tropez blue & white striped cotton tee, a Little Joe Woman by Gail Elliott printed silk Escape jumpsuit, Pared Aviator sunglasses and ModelCo Replenishing Rose Mist.
