Bathing Beauty: May Andersen

Danish born supermodel May Andersen is more than just a very pretty — make that beautiful — face. She’s actually quite fascinating. Be it her worldly travels, incredible work with some of the most sensational photographers, fashion designers and makeup artists in the business, and astute knowledge of all things fashion and beauty related.

May has recently launched her own clothing line here in the US (launched in Denmark in 2006) called Chick with Guns where she designs and models the day wear (to check out the goods, click here). The ‘Mayday’ Jeans are a must! She’s also relocated to the West Coast where she’s traded in the catwalk for the boardwalk. Beach-chic has never looked so gorge!

We decided to ask this fiercely talented free spirit our 7 favorite beauty-related questions.

What are your top 5, can’t-live-without products?
1 – Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler– Just makes the lashes look cute and ‘batty’
2 – La Prairie Fond de Teint in Honey Beige– because its light and is always there for me in case of emergencies.
3 – Essie True Red Nail Polish in Russian Roulette – has been my go-to color for years now. It’s really hard for me to cheat on this one!
4 – Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Polishing Hair Serum– because it just puts those fly-aways to bed.
5 – – if I go out I like a more dramatic brow and I find this pencil to be the best one!
