In this edition of Beauty Box, we are divulging the make-up secrets of Norwegian beauty, Hanneli Mustaparta. The model, art director and photographer knows a thing or two about make-up secret weapons and beauty essentials (and she's sharing all of her secrets with us, including her beauty crush). 

Having been scouted as a model in her home town of Oslo, Hanneli has since lived in Paris and New York, walking the runway and posing for campaigns. After more than four hugely successful years in front of the camera, she made the decision to pursue her talents and interests behind the lens, honing her fashion photography skills and applying her unique perspective to styling and art direction. Calvin Klein enlisted her know-how as a social media ambassador, and brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton and Chanel (to name but a few) have all employed her various skills. Get ready to learn a thing or two from this seasoned fashion insider...

Talk us through your daily basic beauty regime...

I drink green tea, clean my skin and moisturise and I try to workout as much as I can, with pilates.

What do you do to elevate your look for an event or night out?

More mascara and foundation to enhance a slightly stronger look with eyeliner and maybe a touch of shadow.

What's your beauty secret weapon?

Nars shimmer 'Alhambra' – it's a pink shimmer, which I put in the corner of my eyes to open them up and on the bridge of my nose, as well as the bow of my lips to highlight. For the evening I also add to the top of my cheekbones.

If you could only take one product to a desert island what would it be?

SPF50 suncream as it will protect and moisturise!

What's the best beauty advice you have ever received?

Always remove make-up day and cleanse day and night. Moisturise every day. Always. When you remove your make-up it helps minimise pores by removing dirt etc. Moisturiser keeps elasticity in your skin, so keeps you looking younger for longer. You have to invest in the long run!
