Katrina Scott Shares Pre-Photoshoot Makeup Brightening Tips

The SI Swimsuit model uncovers how she achieves her soft and elegant glow.

Katrina Scott is a mother of two, a fitness entrepreneur and an SI Swimsuit model. So, how does she keep her effortless and glistening glow? Luckily for us, she shared a behind-the-scenes video of her makeup routine before her historic shoot in St. Croix earlier this year. Let’s take a look at the products and techniques Scott employs to help her achieve her tasteful yet shimmering hue.

1. ARMANI BEAUTY - Luminous Silk Face & Undereye Concealer, $38 (nordstrom.com)

Scott applies this concealer under her eyes anywhere that she sees discoloration on her face. Scott, who was the first visibly pregnant woman to appear in an SI Swimsuit issue, was experiencing skin discoloration due to melasma from her pregnancy.

2. ARMANI BEAUTY - Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation, $45 - $69 (nordstrom.com)

Using a brush, Scott applies this foundation to her face for ultimate coverage. “It’s incredible and so soft on your skin,” she says.

Scott cleverly uses the same product in a darker tone as a contour to outline and accentuate her cheekbones and jawline. She then brings the shading down to her neck and chest so it matches her face.

4. **Katrina Scott’s Secret**

“One of my secrets is to add a little taupe to the hairline so you don't have a lighter scalp.”

5. CHARLOTTE TILBURY - Filmstar Bronze & Glow in Medium Deep, $68 (nordstrom.com)

Scott uses this product by Charlotte Tilbury as blush to achieve that star-quality shine.

6. HUDA BEAUTY - The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette, $65 (sephora.com)

“I add a light layer of eyeshadow just above my creases, and then a lighter shade on my lids,” Scott reveals.

7. MAKE UP FOR EVER - Artist Color Pencil: Eye, Lip & Brow Pencil in Boundless Bisque, $22 (sephora.com)

Scott says she always applies this eyeliner to her lower waterline. “It opens up your eyes,” she exclaims.

8. Maybelline - Lash Discovery Mascara, $9.99 (ulta.com)

“My go-to mascara is Maybelline Lash Discovery because it’s so precise. And I do like two or three layers on the top and bottom,” Scott says.

9. Anastasia Beverly Hills - Tinted Brow Gel in Blonde, $22 (sephora.com)

Scott swears by Anastasia products. She uses the Tinted Brow Gel in Blonde.

10. Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Freeze®, $23 (sephora.com)

She then applies the Brow Freeze. “Just put a little on a brush and brush upward at 12 o'clock. And then down to three,” she says.

11. MAKE UP FOR EVER - Lip Liner in 602, $22 (sephora.com)

This lip liner by Make Up For Ever is Scott’s go-to choice.

12. Charlotte Tilbury - Penelope Pink Lipstick, $34 (sephora.com)

This lipstick in Penelope Pink is a Scott staple. After applying, Scott recommends using a lip gloss to add more shine.

Bringing it all together, Scott uses Laura Mercier setting powder with a brush on her face.
