My personal memories of the brand go way back to the time when I was a teenager. L’Oréal make-up felt like a real luxury for me and I remember dreaming of purchasing a L’Oréal lipstick.” She also adds, “To me being worth it means being independent and carving your own path. The L’Oréal woman is worth it because she wants to be.”Irina-Shayk-LOreal-Paris_2Sharing her experiences, Irina also reveals that as a teenager she experimented a lot with hair color and messed up awfully. Throwing light on her current beauty care and the secret behind her glowing skin, she shares, “Now, I always start my day with cleaning and moisturising my skin. Sometimes I use ice cubes to wake up my skin – my mother always does it and she has such beautiful skin. If I work, I always protect my skin with a primer before applying any make-up. I love the L’Oréal Paris BB Cream because I don’t need to apply extra foundation; it is lightweight yet a little goes a long way.”

Citing Angelina Jolie, Elizabeth Taylor as well as her grandmother as her role models, she also explains that cosmetics definitely inspire confidence and are a huge part of her life and helps to express her femininity.
