Brazil­ian beauty Is­abeli Fon­tana is far from your av­er­age model. Self-de­scribed as a “rocker with a hint of hippy,” the stun­ning face of L’oréal ex­plains why she got into mod­el­ling and what the brand’s fa­mous slo­gan means to her

Hong Kong Tatler - - Beauty -

She’s a pow­er­ful woman with grace and strength.

What does the brand’s slo­gan “Be­cause you’re worth it” mean to you? It means that, as a woman, you should em­brace your self-worth and al­ways feel beau­ti­ful and in har­mony with your­self. It also means, “I de­serve to feel and look amaz­ing.”

What are the three L’oréal prod­ucts you al­ways have in your bag? A lip­stick from Colour Riche— my favourite colour is 335. And I al­ways have the True Match con­cealer and a good liner

like Su­per­star on me.

Was mod­el­ling a dream when you were a child? Not re­ally—mod­el­ling was not the eas­i­est or most nat­u­ral thing for me when I was young. I just re­ally wanted to help my fam­ily. That’s why I started, so that I would be able to give them a bet­ter life.

Who are your top beauty and fash­ion icons? Amer­i­can model and ac­tress Stephanie Seymour is a beauty icon for me.

How do you get ready for a red-car­pet event? The main goal for me is to feel beau­ti­ful and en­joy my­self. I do my best to play down all the drama around beauty prepa­ra­tion.

With your heavy travel sched­ule, how do you bat­tle jet lag? Sports and green tea.

What’s the best ad­vice you ever re­ceived from a makeup artist? Al­ways re­move make-up and let your skin breathe from time to time.

What are a few of your musthave items? I al­ways carry a bot­tle of wa­ter, sun­screen and skin mois­turiser in my bag. And my aloe vera cap­sules are my se­cret weapon.

Are there any guilty plea­sures that you al­low your­self? I eat cho­co­late ev­ery day!

How many tat­toos do you have? I have a few—seven in to­tal. They have their own mean­ings but they are all in hon­our of my chil­dren; they’re my an­gels.
