Kendall Jenner for White Sands Swim

Throwing back: Its been 5 years since we discovered a fresh new face on the board at Wilhemina Models LA, and booked her for our 2011 campaign shoot.

Loved her then, and love her even more now. You've come a long way Kenny.

WS Fav 5 - Beach Destinations

Check out our favourite 5 swimsuit destinations to take a dip in around the globe. 
Matira Beach, Bora Bora, French Polynesia

 

Matira is perhaps the most famous of Tahiti's beaches, and for good reason. The mile-long stretch of silky, powder-white sand slopes gently into a shallow emerald lagoon, and is backed by a thick curtain of palms and tropical foliage. 

 

El Castillo, Tulum, Riviera Maya, Mexico

 

When it comes to Mexican beaches, this one can not be beat. Offering white sand beach and crystal clear you are surrounded by palms and lush vegetation. Best of all, it’s located directly beneath the famous El Castillo ruins, which can be admired from the shore. 

 

Hidden Beach, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

 

Tucked away 90 minutes from Puerto Vallarta is Hidden Beach. Boasting an array of marine life and amazing coral, Hidden Beach is a tropical paradise that needs to be seen to be believed. 

 

Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Island, Australia

 

Australia is known for having the most beautiful beaches in the world and on visiting Whitehaven Beach you will know why. At the northern end of Whitehaven Beach is Hill Inlet, a stunning cove where the tide shifts the sand and water to create a beautiful fusion of colours.  

 

Bisevo beach, Blue Cave on Biševo Island, Split, Croatia

The Blue Grotto or Blue Cave is a water-logged sea cave located on the island of Biševo in Croatia. The grotto is one of the best known natural beauty destinations due to the glowing blue lights that appears at certain times of day.
We are off to book an around the world plane ticket. Happy travels White Sand Beach Babes.

Shampoo hair and remove extra water. Apply Mask and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse clean.

 

The Oatmeal Exfoliate & Face Mask
 This treatment acts as both a mask and an exfoliate that will give your skin a deep cleanse.

You will need:

Where is your happy place?

Ever since I can remember I’ve always been moving or travelling so there are so many places that come to mind, but I can never bet the feeling of being home back in the countryside where I was born in Tamworth. There is something about that place that always makes me feel happy and recharged whenever I need a break.

Get the Look - White Sands Beach Beauty

We spoke to Nikki Mitchell, White Sands Make Up Artist, on how she achieved this effortlessly sexy beach babe look.

To make Zoe look 'camera ready' when shooting for White Sands, Nikki made sure her skin was perfectly even on both her body and face, with a Nikki Mitchell Spray Tan, that all her models use. This tan has been voted Australia's preferred photographic spray tan for models as it's a natural Olive colour and fades off naturally (won't leave you patchy!). 

 

Nikki's Makeup Tricks

The most important thing with makeup is making sure you have the right foundation to blend into the jaw line. Colour match is a big thing for me. Here are some little tricks to try on yourself or applying makeup on others. 

Foundation 

Use a concealer brush or fingers for natural warmth to apply highlighter above your cheekbones, on your temples, down your nose, above your top lip on the area known as your 'cupid's bow' and just under your eyebrows. This creates a dewy, flawless look. Highlighter can also be used on your eyelids in place of eyeshadow, depending on how much makeup you want to wear. Don't use too much, as you can look too shiny and greasy.

Apply some highlighter or finishing powder, sparingly. Apply bronzer to the hollows of your cheekbones and blush on the apples of your cheeks (don't use too much).  

 

 

Luscious Lips

Alternatively, try a lip and cheek tint for a natural, rosy look. Apply a small dot in the center of each lip and use a lip brush to blend it out. Do the same with your cheeks, but use your fingers or your foundation brush. Be as speedy as you can when blending, because these products tend to dry very fast, but they also last a very long time, so you won't have to reapply.

The most important makeup trick is happiness, be happy inside and it will glow throughout.
