DivineCaroline: What is your number one beauty tip?
Nina Agdal: Stay hydrated. If you’re dehydrated you will automatically lose the glow in your skin.

DC: Before going to bed, do you have a nighttime cleansing ritual and if so what is it? 
NA: Not really. I try to always take off makeup. But I’m also human and sometimes I get lazy. However I do try to encourage people to make it a habit. My ritual is simply washing with water and then spraying rosewater all over.

DC: That’s your trick?
NA: That’s it.

DC: What are some of your favorite go to products for looking picture perfect?
NA: To me having a good brow is very important because it is what frames the most important feature on you, your eyes. EWC has a great new Natural Brow powder, which will make your brows look perfect without looking like you are tried.

DC: On a scale of 1 to 10, how important is makeup?
NA: That depends on how you feel about it. If makeup makes you feel better about yourself then it’s important. For me, it’s not a big deal.

DC: What do you like to wear on a daily basis?
NA: I prefer to keep my face as clean as possible when I am not working. 

DC: What’s your advice for choosing the right blush color for your skin type?
NA: That depends on if you like it to look more natural or you like the look of blush. I personally don’t, so I prefer a light bronzer. 

DC: Can you offer up some suggestions on how to find the right shade of lipstick?
NA:
If you want a lot of focus on your lips I would recommend on picking a darker color. I love a dark red for a night out and a more nude color for day events.

DC: I never leave the house without wearing mascara. You never leave the house without wearing … 
NA:
… shoes. [Laughs]

DC: Every woman wants to look beautiful. How can she find the right balance of looking natural without wearing too much makeup?
NA:
My number one rule is don’t overdo it. Pick one feature you want to put the focus on; the lips, the eyes or the brow. Doing all three to the max will make you look overdone done.

DC: When you are buying makeup, which brands do you like and why?
NA:
I like Clinique. My mother got me into that brand from the time I started wearing makeup. I really like Calvin Klein’s CK One makeup too. 

DC: In addition to your successful modeling career you’re also teaming up with European Wax Center. What's your number one tip to avoid redness after a waxing treatment?
NA:
European Wax Center reveals beauty, and is all about gorgeous skin. It’s luxury, at an affordable price. As a model, my skin needs to be silky smooth all the time. Their Exclusive comfort wax usually doesn’t irritate your skin. However, if you do get irritated, they have a great calming cream that takes away the redness.
