Read an Excerpt

from Chapter 5: Models' Secrets

A Model's Bag
A model's bag is filled with things you've never dreamed of! Here's a sampling of what you would find if you were to peek into the everyday bag of a working model.
P.S.: Every model gets a workout just from lugging the thing around!

Baby Wipes
This is a great tool for both cleansing the face and removing makeup. Baby wipes are hygienic (use them once, and throw them away) and gentle to the face. You'll find that most versions contain lanolin, which is a skin softener. Purchase the convenient travel pack to freshen up at a moment's notice. It's also useful for taking up a stain or deodorant mark.

Hemorrhoid Cream
As mentioned in Chapter Two, it is the secret backstage of top runways. We use it on our puffy eyes, along the jaw line and puffy cheeks. It is an instant face lift, and a favorite of the die-hard party-goers.

Garlic & Papaya Tablets
This is an absolute must when it's necessary to get weight off in a hurry. Garlic and papaya tablets act together as a diuretic and can get up to six pounds off in a couple of days. Ask your pharmacist for the strongest strength available over-the-counter. Take two garlic tablets with two papaya tablets before breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eat lightly on these days, staying away from salt. There are "star" caplets out there on the market with similar ingredients priced at $100 and up. You can buy garlic and papaya tablets in your local drugstore or health food store. They're usually priced at under $5 for both. Of course, being natural supplements, they're much safer than the chemical weight-loss products so widely sold.

Chalk
Here's a natural way to hide stains. Carry white chalk for white clothing, and colored chalk for all the different colors of your wardrobe. I prefer that you use these natural treatments over chemical stain removers because they are safer for the planet and many fabrics can be ruined by chemical versions.

White Eyeliner
Models find white eyeliner essential to create a wide-eyed look. Use it along the lash line, and softly smudge it with a sponge applicator.

White Eye Shadow
Models use it to create a shimmering face base by mixing it with their foundation. Stroked just under the brow, it lifts the eye.

Vaseline
You can create your own tinted gloss, and save lots of money at the same time. Simply mix any of your favorite lipsticks with a dab of Vaseline.

Eye Redness Reliever
Have I got a way for you to remove breakouts quickly! In just the way that eye redness relievers take the redness out of the eye, so does it remove redness from pimples. Squeeze out a little on a cotton swab. Hold it on the pimple for ten to fifteen seconds, or until it disappears. Models (and the people who hire them) consider it a tragedy to get a pimple, but it's also important for you when you have that big party, to obliterate those little suckers. This will do it, and quickly.

    Secrets You Won't Find Anywhere Else!

    I love all of Diane Irons' books. Her approach to beauty and style is superior and realistic. The second edition of World's Best Kept Beauty Secrets contains new celebrity and model tips that are affordable and make total sense. Her extensive research into the active ingredients in expensive products and how easily they can be replicated at home more than pay for the book. Actually just one or two tips do that. Highly inspirational for women of all ages and recommended without reservation.
