16 questions: sara sampaio
Job Description: Supermodel
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL MOST CONFIDENT FOR THE CAMERA?
Good hair and good light, definitely.
I barely ever wear makeup in my day-to-day, and having some on makes you feel different.
THE LAST THING YOU DO BEFORE GOING ON SET?
YOUR SIGNATURE BEAUTY LOOK?
I looooove a good red lip, but I love an awesome smoky black eye, because it gives intensity to the eyes. For hair, either Hollywood waves, or a cool guy-like hairstyle, all slicked back with a little up in the front.
YOUR BEAUTY ICONS?
Angelina Jolie, Shakira, Avril Lavigne. I still remember trying to copy Avril’s smoky eye as a kid. Also, Margot Robbie.
I barely EVER wear makeup in my day-to-day, and having some on makes you feel DIFFERENT.
MOST MEMORABLE CAREER LOOKS?
The Cannes Film Festival red carpets—I get to really play with my looks there.
WHERE DO YOU FEEL MOST BEAUTIFUL?
At the beach with wet hair, all tanned.
BEST WAY TO START THE DAY?
Orange juice and pancakes—I love them and try to make healthy versions of them.
TIME SPENT ON BEAUTY IN THE A.M.?
If I’m not working and don’t really have anywhere special to go I literally take one minute. Just wash my face, put on moisturizer, and I’m good to go. I’m very blessed to have great hair, so all I do is brush it and I’m out of the door.
FAVORITE GETTING-READY SOUNDTRACK?
There’s this playlist on iTunes I love called Acoustic Chill, I play that all the time.
AN EXPENSIVE-BUT-WORTH-IT PRODUCT OR TREATMENT?
Lymphatic massages—they are amazing if you retain a lot of water!
LAST THING YOU DO BEFORE BED?
Brush my teeth, apply lip balm, check my phone one last time, cuddle my dogs and put on my sleep eye mask.
SCARIEST THING YOU’VE EVER DONE?
Shark cage diving.
BEST HIDDEN TALENT?
Play the violin.
Karaoke singer! Is that a job?
