How to Look Just Like Miranda Kerr (JK! You Can Copy Her Beauty Routine, Though)
Miranda Kerr is about as infamous in the beauty world as she is in the modelling industry. She’s earned herself a reputation for being super knowledgeable in the world of organic beauty, so we were thrilled to be able to talk to her about all things skin care and makeup. Even during her six-year stint as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, it was her beauty regimen that drew a ton of attention and curiosity because, well, that face.
So it came as no surprise when she launched her own brand of organic skin care products in 2009, called KORA Organics, and signed on as the face of Joyful by Escada ($80, sephora.com). We chatted with Kerr and were pleasantly surprised to find that she’s just as informed and obsessed as any beauty junkie we know.
Joyful is, as the name suggests, an uplifting, floral fragrance, with notes of pink peony, blackcurrant, honeycomb and sandalwood. “[Joyful] is about finding pleasure and joy in the little moments that make up your day,” she tells us. “Selecting a scent is such a personal thing and I look for something that enhances and embodies my personality. I believe a scent shouldn’t be too overpowering—just enough for the person you’re speaking to notice, but not so much you turn every head in the room.”
Like most people who are obsessed with skin care, Kerr has her morning and evening routine down to a science. “I dry body brush each morning which is a great way to increase circulation, remove dead skin cells, aide lymphatic drainage and keep your skin smooth all over,” she explains. “I then have a quick and simple routine for my face, neck and décolletage of cleanse, mist/tone and moisturize, which I do morning and night.
[Twice a week], I exfoliate [using] KORA Organics Exfoliating Cream, and then apply my KORA Organics Hydrating Mask. I also amp up my moisturizer by emulsifying two drops of KORA Organics Luxurious Rosehip Oil to it at night—it’s like a multivitamin for the skin; it’s great for all skin types to hydrate, brighten and replenish skin. It’s also a rich source of antioxidants, is anti-aging and helps counteract environmental damage from the sun, wind or long flights.”
As for what she carries around with her at all times, we—thankfully—did not get the average “lip balm and sunglasses” response. (By the way, celebs who give us that answer, we don’t really believe you.) “Tweezers, a hand-held magnifying mirror, KORA Organics Citrus Mists, KORA Organics Hand Cream, RMS Beauty Living Luminizer, RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in “Rapture,” RMS Beauty Concealer, KORA Organics Tinted Day Cream, mascara, KORA Organics Vitamin Enhanced lip balm, KORA Organics Luxurious Rose Hip Face Oil, [and an] Escada Joyful rollerball.”
Kerr studied nutrition before getting her start in modelling, so it’s no surprise that she knows her stuff when it comes to organic care. “It made me very aware of why it’s important to look after yourself nutritionally—your skin is your largest organ and you need to feed and hydrate it from within.”
And with that newfound knowledge, you now have all the tools you need to look like Miranda Kerr (lol).
