Baby Oil, Mousse & More! Brooklyn Decker's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Beauty Secrets!

Posted on

When cover model Brooklyn Decker stripped down to just a bikini for Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue shoot in the Maldives, her curves weren’t the only thing she was willing to reveal. The model let the hair and makeup pros who were with her on set share their top tips and products from the beach shoot with InStyle.com. “I’m not going to lie, at the beginning of the day, I’m always in the background yelling, ‘They can’t get wet yet, they can’t get wet yet!'” says Decker’s hairstylist Peter Butler of her locks. To prevent water-related mishaps, he always starts with mousse, which helps hair retain its shape — even after the inevitable splash. To keep skin looking perfect from shore to surf, her makeup artist Tracy Martin slathers on Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel. “It’s super shiny, plus it repels water and looks absolutely stunning in pictures,” she says. But what we want to know is, how to keep Brooklyn’s sexy, smoky eye from turning into raccoon circles when makeup meets water? “Think tons and tons of waterproof mascara,” she says, explaining that she layers lengthening, volumizing and thickening formulas to achieve the doe-eyed effect.
