Beauty / IN THE BAG

Go backstage with Victoria Lee

She’s a Victoria’s Secret model, the face of David Jones and isn’t about to slow down anytime soon. Here she shares her art of balance and her biggest indulgences.

My top five products are …
Equal Beauty cleansing cloths
SK-II sheet masks
Bobbi Brown Remedies Skin fortifier No.93
Aveda Damage Remedy shampoo and conditioner
Lanolips lip balm

My travel beauty routine consists of …
Removing makeup with Equal Beauty wipes, spraying rosewater/toner, applying Bobbi Brown Skin Remedies No.93, followed by a lighter moisturizer (Ultraceuticals Ultra Moisturising Cream or Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream) – it’s all about locking in moisture and hydration. I then apply a balm – either Lanolips or Elizabeth Arden – on my lips, under my nose and around my cuticles, drink a lot of water throughout the flight and try my best to get some sleep.

The best beauty secret I’ve learned backstage is …
Under eye de-puffers.
