Model Hazel Jane on Her $16 Brow Secret and Embracing a New Beauty Standard
With the exception of her images, there isn't much information about Hazel Jane online. That's the thing; she lets the photos speak for themselves. Her range is palpable. From commercial beauty shots to editorials in French cafés to shadowy close-ups, she allows whoever may be viewing the pictures to take in the fact she can do it all without having to say the words. When I saw her in person, younger-looking than I expected and graceful in her movements, she was sweet and lithy, like the ingénue in so many of those classic films. But once we got to talking, there was a sparkle behind her eye, a passion and wisdom often left from the character in the movie.
On set, she transformed. Adorned in chunky, silver glitter and dollish pink lips, she had me transfixed. We sat down to discuss her thoughts on beauty—from her favourite products to the way her aesthetic has changed, as well as how modelling has altered the way she interacts with confidence and beauty ideals. Below, find her thoughtful words.
On her current makeup aesthetic…
"Very clean and simple—which makes getting ready super easy. Most days I only wear mascara and brush up my eyebrows. I'm lucky to have strong eyebrows. Since they stand out, I tend to pay more attention to the products I use on them. My favorite product at the moment is definitely Glossier's Boy Brow."
On the makeup trends she hopes to see more of in 2019…
"I love the no-makeup makeup look. It's the glowing and dewy skin that I think is timeless, and I really hope the trend continues in 2019."
On how her self-care routine has changed as she's come into her own…
"As I've come into my own, I feel like my self-care habits have become [simpler and more effective]. I finally know what truly works best for me, so instead of feeling a bit unsure of what I'm lacking, I have a solid selection of options. As the weather changes, especially with the colder months making it hard to be outside, exercise is a non-negotiable for me. My go-to is yoga, and I try to take classes as often as I can."
On how modeling has changed the way she interacts with confidence and sees "beauty"…
"I think the industry has become significantly more progressive with celebrating different types of beauty. And because of this, it has only expanded my own thoughts about what to embrace about myself. It's definitely changed how I classify what's 'beautiful.'"
On her 2019 beauty and wellness goals…
"I'm happy where I've arrived when it comes to my wellness and beauty regimen, but with the New Year, I actually want to explore a bit more with makeup and attempt more creative looks. Makeup is fun. I should make the most out of it!"
