She’s no novice when it comes to beauty – she’s even got her own website devoted to the topic – and now, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been appointed Global Brand Ambassador for beloved brand Bare Minerals. GLAMOUR catches up with the supermodel to discuss everything makeup to skincare, from brow blunders, to industry-insider hacks, to the £4 body cream she absolutely swears by.
“I’ve had some makeup looks that I’m hoping will never see the light of day”
I’ve had some disastrous beauty looks in my time. I started very much at the bottom of the industry and worked my way up, so at the beginning I was doing some pretty questionable shoots with very bold beauty looks. Luckily, it was before Instagram and the internet so hopefully they’ll never see the light of day! Let’s just say, I’ve seen so much bad makeup being done on myself that I know what not to do when applying it.
“Everything starts with good skincare”
The best piece of beauty advice I’ve been given is the idea that it all starts with good skincare. Skin is the most important thing – and that’s advice that’s been given to me by makeup artists across the industry. I try and invest in the best products, evolving my skincare as I age or to suit the climate and just learning what works for my skin.
For me, I’m always looking for results-driven products which is why I love the Bare Minerals Skin Longevity range. I also love Oil Obsessed – it’s a firm fixture in my beauty wardrobe because it’s a great way of removing makeup at the end of the day but it’s also a really gentle cleanser for the mornings.

“When I’m off-duty, I need clean makeup”
I’m a really big fan of the classic Bare Minerals Original Mineral Fondation. I’m blown away by how it works. At first, I was apprehensive and didn’t know how a powder would give me coverage. It couldn’t have surpassed my expectations more. It’s so easy to use, I get the most beautiful, luminous coverage in a minute and then just apply a little concealer where I need. It’s a clean mineral powder, which means it won’t make my skin flare up. When I’m off duty, I love products that are lightweight and have clean benefits.
