Throwback Thursday: Classic Beauty Linda Evangelista

Close

This week, we honor classic beauty, Linda Evangelista as our Thursday Throwback.

This stunning supermodel has been an iconic face of fashion labels, beauty brands, and magazines for over three decades. Considered one of the "it girls" of the 80's and 90's, the Canadian stunner born to Italian parents helped to put the notion of supermodels on the map with a quote she is still cited for today.

Discovered at a local beauty pageant as a teenager, Linda's was clearly a natural beauty, but it wasn't until a dramatic makeover that the young cat walker's career would launch her to fashion industry icon status. Scared to part with her long tresses, the young model cried as she received the short brunette cropped cut that helped her snag a record number of Vogue Italia covers, among many others.

Causing more than a stir on the pages of magazines, Evangelista put models on the map with one simple interview. "We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day," she was quoted as saying. The comment made fashion models more than just muses to the public, certifying their business savvy and power within the fashion industry.

To steal Linda's swag, the most important tool you'll need is your ability to be a style chameleon. From different hair colors, cuts, and a gorgeous gamut of makeup colors, Evangelista has tried on and rocked one sick style after another.

To her credit, Linda admits to being a self-professed beauty junkie. I'm an interview with Gratzia magazine she dished on her makeup stash. "I have an extensive make-up kit lined up on a huge silver tray that I move from one side of the house to the other depending on what light I want to do my make-up in. Its all about the light!"

And who would've thought Linda does her own makeup?! "I've learnt so many tricks from so many amazing make-up artists so I know exactly what suits me and what my face needs to look good," she said. Kiss and Tell Beauty also shared a few of Linda's other secrets. The runway goddess recommends to try dabbing some lipstick on the apples of your cheeks for a long lasting blush. Evangelista also shared that a shimmery lip gloss totally doubles as a highlight on the top of your cheekbones. Loving the tips!
