Suki Waterhouse uses beauty as a ‘tool’

Model Suki Waterhouse finds make-up as a great tool because it is so diverse in what it can do for a person.

“As I’ve grown up, it’s really about context – like what you need from that day. Sometimes I want to disappear and melt into the background and wear a hood and no make-up. And then sometimes, like if you ask for a raise, you want a shield of make-up on – it really is armour,” Waterhouse told Miss Vogue magazine reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“Make-up is a tool, at our disposition. We’re the captain of the make-up ship,” she added.

Waterhouse has been friends with fellow model Georgia May Jagger since her school days, and credits her mother, Texan supermodel Jerry Hall, for teaching them a lot about beauty and modelling basics.

She said: “I remember being obsessed with sky-blue nail polish – Hard Candy and stuff like that. I also was obsessed with lightning bolts because of Harry Potter and then Bowie. I learned some good basics from my mum. She’s not someone who cakes it on, she’s just really naturally gorgeous.

“And then I learned a lot from my friend Georgia May Jagger – we’d be around her mum and she’d teach us how to catwalk. I’ve always been kind of fascinated by that long blonde hair and big red lips I’d see on Jerry and Georgia.”
