The gorgeous Elouise (Elle) Morris is the brunette beauty that joined Natalie Roser and Elyse Knowles to front our #ModelCoTan summer 2015 campaign. Shot at the iconic Bondi Beach in Sydney by the talented Josie Clough from It’s Now Cool, the bubbly and vivacious Elle modelled sported a killer bronzed glow, care of our newest ModelCo tanning innovation ONE HOUR TAN.
Hailing from the North Coast of NSW, Elouise has been successfully modeling since the age of 19 for well-known brands such as General Pants, Cotton On Body and featuring on covers such as Women’s Fitness.
With a strong social media following behind her, following stints in LA and Miami with NEXT Model Management, Elle was dubbed by Daily Mail as the ‘next Miranda Kerr’ after being papped on set at the ModelCo shoot.
ModelCo sat down with Elle to pick her brains on how to achieve her effortless summer beauty look.
What are your tips for feeling comfortable in front of a camera?
I’ve always felt quite comfortable in front of the camera. I like to clown around on set which creates a good vibe with the crew and if everyone’s happy, then I’m happy which makes the shoot run smoothly and I get the job done!
How would you define Australian summer beauty?
Bronzed of course (these days we have so many great options without putting our skin at risk). My favourite is ModelCo tanning mousse! Then paired with beach hair, glowing skin, minimal make up and a huge smile.
ModelCo Tip: Elle was tanned using ModelCo ONE HOUR TAN Express Tan Mousse for the #ModelCoTan shoot.
What is your own go-to summer beauty regime?
Plenty of time at the beach – it’s good for the soul which comes out through your skin, tinted moisturiser, peachy blush, lip balm, sea salt spray for tousled hair.
ModelCo Tip: For the perfect peach cheek flush, try ModelCo CREME ROUGE Cheek & Lips which provides a sheer, buildable colour that can be used on both cheeks and lips.
Three beauty essentials you can’t leave home without?
Hydration spray! I can’t live without it because it refreshes your skin and leaves a luminous glow, A good lippy, which can brighten your face instantly and tinted moisturiser. I can top it up whenever and it looks as though I’m not wearing anything.
ModelCo Tip: Carry ModelCo REPLENISHING ROSE MIST facial mist in your beach/hand bag to keep skin hydration at the ready on these hot summer days.
What is your signature hairstyle?
I love texturised hair as mine is super straight, I usually spritz sea salt spray or dry shampoo to give it body and that sexy beach hair look!
Are there any skin or wellness rituals that you swear by?
ModelCo ROSEHIP Luxury Facial Oil, organic coconut oil, always wear sunscreen! Staying active and having a healthy diet… I eat veggies like crazy.
When you’re not working, how do you like to unwind?
In summer, the beach, the ocean and sun are both so soothing, yoga/pilates, going for long walks beach or bush, cooking and hanging out with my pets.
Can you share any insider tips that you have picked up from makeup artists after all these hours spent sitting in the make up chair?
To prep and to prime the skin. I’m always learning new tricks and what products work best on my skin. Each makeup artist is totally different and I just take note of what they are doing so I can try to recreate my favourite looks.
What products are always in your makeup kit?
Hydration spray, primer, tinted moisturiser, concealer, blush/bronzer, mascara, earthy eye shadows, eyebrow gel and a good illuminator!
ModelCo Tip: For a breathable, no budge makeup primer, try ModelCo’s legendary FACE BASE Skin Primer and for enviable, full brows like the gorgeous Elle, try the transformative eybrow gel, ModelCo MORE BROWS.
What are your ModelCo favourites?
Rosehip oil, mascara, tanning mouse! There’s actually not a ModelCo product that I don’t love they’re all amazing.
