Since she was signed to Nous Model Management in 2017, we as company, have been in awe of Tori Bass’ natural skills when it comes to makeup art. In light of her recent beauty shoots (her role in the newest KKW Beauty campaign & Beth Sternbaum’s masterful creations), we thought it was only fit to get the details on her typical beauty routine. Tori Bass’ passion for makeup artistry is something that we deeply admire, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to try out all the products that she has recommended. To see what her routine is, take a glance below:

What do you love about makeup? 

I love that makeup is so personal, and that there is no wrong way to do it. Whether you like the barely there look or want to be completely caked up, you can cater it to your mood. Plus, I always love seeing the way someone’s face lights up when they love their makeup. It only takes a little to boost your confidence sometimes.

What is your favorite era of makeup? 

The 60’s is hands down my favorite era for makeup. It was bold, fashion forward, and always made a statement. Models and muses like Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick embodied it beautifully, but Priscilla Presley’s wedding makeup is my favorite look of all time.

Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup? 

Sephora will always be my favorite! I’ve shopped there since I was very young, and worked in the Beverly Hills location before I began modeling so it will always have a place in my heart.

Is there any kind of makeup that you can’t leave the house without? 

My lip gloss! I like having a bare face, but need my Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb or I feel incomplete.

What is your daily skincare routine? (step by step) 

I’ve learned that for sensitive skin, keeping things as simple as possible is what works the best. I use my Clarisonic Face Brush with the First Aid Beauty Cleanser, and follow up with their Ultra Repair Cream after. That’s it for every day! Once or twice a week I’ll use the Aztec Clay Mask all over to detox my skin if it’s been through at lot. It works great as an overnight spot treatment for any zits as well. No more toothpaste on your face ladies!

 

What is your go-to natural look? What products do you use? 

The natural look has been my favorite the past few months. I start by evening my skin with a tiny drop of the Naked Skin Foundation, buffing it in until it’s one with my skin.

After, I spot conceal anything that wasn’t covered before with the Kat Von D Lock It concealer, as it’s very high coverage. To keep in all in place, I set it with a light layer of the Fenty Beauty Translucent Blotting Powder.

Then to add a natural glow, I use Cover FX’s Click Highlighter in Gilded to the high points of my face. It’s cream, but blends on top of powder without a problem.

For brows, I like NYX Brow Pencil, and for mascara nothing beats Urban Decay’s Perversion. I’ve used it for years! Lastly, I add the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb and I’m ready to go! It may sound like a lot, but it only takes about 10 mins tops so it’s great for everyday.

 

What is your go-to “night out” look? What products do you use? 

For night, I basically use the same products, but aim for a little bit more coverage and longevity by layering to make sure nothing moves. Adding an extra drop of foundation and setting spray (nothing can top the Urban Decay All Nighter) is perfect for that.

Also, I like to use the Eve Pearl Blush Trio and Vapour Beauty Solar Transparent Bronzer in “Spicy” together to add some color and definition to my cheeks. The “Spicy” shade is great because it works on very light skin tones to deeper ones such as mine.

For lips, my current favorite is the “Walk of Shame” Matte Lipstick by Charlotte Tilbury because it goes with any look. If I’m feeling bolder, Urban Decay’s “Bad Blood” Matte Lipstick is super flattering.

What is your favorite drugstore brand? 

My favorite drugstore brand is definitely NYX! I’ve found that they have dupes for so many different high end products, and many times they perform better for less than half the price. They’ve got a huge selection too so lots of options to choose from.

What cosmetics brand are you excited to try, but haven’t yet? 

I’ve wanted to try Illamasqua for years but haven’t. It’s not as easy to find in the US but after years of watching British YouTubers praise the quality, I’ve wanted to try it for myself.

What is your most cherished beauty product? 

My most cherished beauty product is the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara. My natural lashes are on the thinner, smaller side and it’s the only mascara to really wow me and make them look as big as I’d like them too. I’ve even had a few people ask me if I’m wearing falsies when I wear it.

Is there anything about the product(s) that you use that make them unique to others in their market?

On unique thing is that all of my products are cruelty free. It’s easier on my conscious to buy products where I know no living thing had to suffer in the process. I encourage everyone to explore as many cruelty free options that they can!

What celebrity and/or figure in your life inspires your makeup look? 

Rihanna! I don’t think she’s ever had a bad makeup day. Her face is never caked, and she the way her artists give her a glow is mesmerizing. She’s a great example of how to enhance what is already beautiful on someone’s face.

Is there anything else that you would like to include? 

I know that makeup can be a bit daunting to those who aren’t as knowledgeable about products but it can be a really cool hobby to explore. Don’t be too intimated and visit your local Sephora where they are more than happy to personalize different makeup products to you and your lifestyle!

“A best friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find, lucky to have.”

In honor of #NationalBestFriendsDay, we asked two of our celebrated Nous Model BFFs, Britt and Maggimae, to share what it is like to be each other’s gal pals. From various inside jokes, to their mutual love of dogs: these ladies are the epitome of good camaraderie. To view the full interview, look below:

Britt and Maggimae on set for Boys & Arrows.

When and how did you first meet?

Britt: We met on an Armani job! It was friends at first sight! We became friends before we were even out of hair and makeup!

Maggimae: We met while on an Armani job together!

What are the two things your best friend does not know about you?

Britt: Trying to think of something ….. drawing a real blank …

Maggimae: We share a toothbrush on occasion so she knows everythinggggg, lol.

Can you describe your best friend in one word?

Britt: Wondrous.

Maggimae: FUNNEST.

What part about your best friend do you like the most?

Britt: How she makes me laugh. We could be doing anything and we always share the best laugh till you cry moments. We even worked a 16 hour day once and were laughing till the end.

Maggimae: How we are literally always laughing together. Cry laughing.

What is the best advice that your best friend has ever given you?

Britt: Maggi is like my little sister and the thing I receive the most from her is that she always believes in me and encourages me just when I need it most.  She helps me stay light hearted and believe the best in life.

Maggimae: I seriously text her and get advice about everything, but the most important and helpful advice is always something model-related. For example, how to dress for castings and do my hair and makeup and all that jazz.

What is their favorite food?

Britt: Sonic….  I’m not sure, but Maggi is so hardcore with health. Yet, then on her cheat day, she knows how to get down like the good ole Midwestern girls that we are!

Maggimae: Pizza for sure. Anything on @soyummy Instagram.

If your best friend has a scar, how did they get it?

Maggimae: On her lip, a dog bit her when she was a kid.

Which is your best friend’s favorite season and why?

Britt: Maggi and I are both sun worshippers! So, summer! We love the beach, bikinis, and ice cream!  Give us more summer! Kansas girls gone Cali!

Maggimae: Summer!!!! All the fun summer things. BBQs, the beach, being tan.

What is your best friend’s dream job?

Britt: Maggi would love to be Mother Earth…. the end.

Maggimae: Comedian and, trust me, she should be looking into that.

If you were out together, what would your best friend eat?

Britt: If it’s cheat day???? Maggi loves Midwest fast food. It’s hilarious because on all other days she is so healthy and some kind of organic vegan cult leader…

Maggimae: Depends on if it’s a cheat day or not. If it’s Friday, loaded fries, pizza, cheese platters.

Would your best friend watch a chick-flick, action, comedy or a horror movie?

Maggimae: Comedy all the way.

Maggimae and Britt looking stunning at GUESS event.

What are the three items your best friend always carries with them?

Britt: Homemade Organic Shea butter, phone, and water bottle (always).

What is your favorite inside joke?

Britt: We never take ourselves too seriously and we love to joke about how we are “professionally good looking,” Zoolander style! We like to make model jokes and have good ole fashion (get it “fashion”) fun!

Maggimae: If we told you then we would have to kill you. 😉 Lol, we have so many there’s no way to even type all of it out! Just know we are a hoot and there’s a lot.

What is the name of your best friend’s crush?

Maggimae: Isaac – her husband haha.

Britt: It was John Stamos (one time she had me help her DM him on Instagram… thank you liquid courage), but then after some questionable speculations concerning his character: she now loves John Ham.

Between the two of you, who takes longer to get ready?

Britt: Me 100 percent. I have to force Maggi to brush her hair and wear makeup. Good thing she is naturally beautiful because that girl is all tomboy.

Maggimae: BRITT 100%.

What is a favorite memory that you two share?

Britt: Maggi and I were at a GUESS event and let’s just say we had a red carpet blooper that had us laughing till we almost peed our pants… again.

Maggimae: We always have so much fun no matter what we are doing… even laying on the floor or cleaning Britt’s room, hahah, but some of my favorite times are when we work together because those days are definitely not even considered work in my book!

Does your best friend have any nicknames?

Britt: Actually, we just combine our names to make the awesome hashtag: #itsbrittmae.

Does your best friend have any strange phobias?

Maggimae: She hates feet.

What is your best friend really bad at?

Maggimae: Coordination is not her best friend, let’s just say that.

Britt: Maggi always shocks me w/ her athleticism, which I lack. So maybe anything girly like hair & makeup.

What is the last book your best friend read?

Maggimae: She reads every dang day. Like one thousand books a week. Last one is “Name of the Wind.”

What is your best friend’s favorite animal? 

Britt: Her dogs are her life

Was your best friend named after anyone? If so, who?

Britt: Rod steward’s song, Maggimae.

What is your best friend’s greatest achievement?

Maggimae: Adopting her adorable perfection baby boy, Shiah!!!

Hello, Dollface! After a couple years of fawning over Katya Vladykina’s flawless glow, we thought it would be only fit to get the scoop on her daily beauty routines. From natural-wear to glam-time, Katya spilled all of her secrets. To see what she advises, take a look below:

Katya taken by Brian Love

1. Is there any kind of makeup that you can’t leave the house without?

I am super simple when it comes to makeup and I love to keep my face fresh! So, I just bring my Rose or Cocoa Butter Mini Lip Vaselines (to die for) and Mario Badescu’s Rose Water Face Spray.

Vaseline – Rose

Mario Badescu – Facial Spray

Vaseline – Cocoa Butter

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. What is your daily skincare routine?

My skin care routine mostly happens before I go to bed. I wash my face with a Cera Ve Cleanser that does wonders at gently getting everything off. I’ve also been using Witch Hazel as toner – which is a natural option with lots of amazing benefits! Finishing it off, I’ve been using First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream as a deep moisturizer through the night. I wake up and just re-moisturize my face for the sun beams of the day ahead (preferably with some SPF)

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Gel

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Powder Duo

3. What is your go-to natural look? What products do you use?

My go-to natural look starts and ends with some definition on my eyes and eyebrows. I looove the brow products by Anastasia Beverly Hills and use the Brow Powder, as well as the Clear Eyebrow Gel. I ALWAYS curl my lashes, add some mascara, & voila! In my opinion, mascara is just black goop so I switch it up every time but right now I’m using Urban Decay Perversion and it’s bomb 🙂

4. What is your go-to “night out” look? What products do you use?

Now for the night out look – just add shimmer shimmer shimmer!!!! Shimmer on the cheeks in the form of a Becca Highlighter, shimmer on the eyes in the form of Stila Liquid Eye Shadow (Kitten color is gorgeous), smudge out some eyeliner, and add some lipgloss!!! My fav is White Russian by Buxom (partially because I’m Russian & very white most of the year).

Buxom Full-On Lip Cream – White Russian

STILA Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow – Kitten Karma

Becca Cosmetics – Highlighter

5. What is your favorite drugstore brand?

Growing up, Elf was the ISH!!! $1 makeup??? Heck ya!!!! However, NYX has some really bright and fun options for any occasion.

6. What is your favorite era of makeup?

Absolutely right now. I love the natural, fresh dewiness and glow. Today’s makeup accentuates natural beauty at its finest and lets the personality outshine the highlight. 😉

7. What cosmetics brand are you excited to try, but haven’t yet?

Oh man – Definitely the high end French makeup brands: Estée Lauder, Dior, YSL, etc. I’ve always dreamed of having a little vanity full of French lotions, oils, and all things lovely.

 

 

Coconut Oil

8. What is your most cherished beauty product?

COCONUT OIL – it is my forever holy grail product!!! I put it in my hair, on my body, basically everywhere I can. Not only does it make you want to eat yourself at every hour of the day, but it is so so so moisturizing on just about everything!

9. Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?

Ohmygosh, Sephora is my black hole heaven on earth – I could spend hours in there spritzing and swatching!!!!

10. What do you love about makeup?

I love that makeup is so universal. To some it adds confidence, and to other it’s self expression or a form of art. I love exploring it in all three of these ways. 🙂
