You would think that someone with the bone structure and body of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley would find taking a selfie a relatively straightforward and easy task. But, refreshingly, that's apparently not the case.
Rosie, who is pregnant with her first child, opened up to Glamour UK recently about what it takes to get the perfect selfie, and it's a pretty intense investment of time.
"Well, you need half an hour, you need great lighting, and you need to be prepared to take about 100 pictures of yourself, edit through 100 pictures of yourself and then filter them three times. You know, come on! Be real! That's the way it is."
However, the model was quick to point out that she worries about the impact of such selfies on young girls. "[I worry about] young girls out there who are really feeling insecure about their image and they scroll through and see this image of a supermodel looking amazing, reclining on a beach in a completely unrealistic pose or environment. And I can see how that would make people not feel good about themselves. I can't say that I'm immune to that."
#TB to Sunday nights glam for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party by make up maestro @kateleemakeup using #RosieForAutograph Beauty. Kate spoke to @intothegloss about creating the look and that getting that "glow" - "Highlighter first, then foundation. Right? We know. But it's the technique Kate swears by. "I like to incorporate highligther first, as a part of foundation," she told us. "I like to put the luminosity in the skin first and then spot treat. Bare cheekbones and luminizer is a good look. I used Rosie's Marks and Spencer's Starstruck Highlighter Stick, the shade of which is a nice nude, on the cheekbones and the top of her lips. Then I used Chanel Vitalumière Aqua under her cheekbones, on the forehead, and chin, applying with a damp Beautyblender. You're creating light with highlighter and diffusing it with the foundation." The effect is a glow that isn't wet-face, but innate." Link in bio for my #RosieForAutograph Starstruck Highlighter Stick..
She went on to say that selfies are "part of what I do and I hope that people don't feel... that my social media is too obnoxious."
A supermodel with a conscious? There's nothing obnoxious about that.
