From the Catwalk to Coconut Grove: Inés Rivero’s Guide to Miami For former Victoria Secret Angel Inés Rivero, the concept of beauty can be defined simply by the adage, “less is more.” After about 15 years on the catwalk, wearing “wings” and gracing the covers of Elle, Vogue,and Marie Claire, Rivero has turned her focus to maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle… and wearing as little makeup as possible. "Makeup should be either a way to enhance your beauty or to just have fun being creative,” says Rivero, stating SkinCeuticals Vitamin C Serum, Kate Somerville Detox Daily Cleanser, and Sisley Paris Eye Concealer as her beauty must-haves. “I try to keep my face clean and to keep makeup to a minimum — just the right amount so I look fresh and healthy.” When the Miami-based model isn’t mastering street photography using her Cannon 7D or horseback riding and playing polo with friends, she’s taking in the sites (and taking advantage of the weather!).

In 2009, I moved to Doha, Qatar to teach English at an art & design branch campus of an American university. Qatar, for those unfamiliar with the country, shares a border with Saudi Arabia, and is best known for its incredible wealth, ambitious (and maligned) infrastructure growth, and its desire to become an international showcase for art, culture, and athletics (as of now, the 2022 World Cup is slated to take place there). Qatar has long been a globalized country, a point of intersect for people of the Middle East, East Africa, and Asia. Most of my students were either Qatari or from nearby Middle Eastern and Asian countries, and many shared a taste for designer handbags, shoes, and makeup.
