Beverly Johnson's Makeup Routine: Fish Oil, False Eyelashes & More (VIDEO)

Models are used to sitting for hours backstage at fashion shows or photo shoots to get made up. And when you've been lucky enough to settle in the chairs of top hair and makeup artists, you're sure to pick up a few tricks that will come in handy when pressed for time.

In the video above, legendary supermodel Beverly Johnson steps in front of the camera barefaced (albeit sporting a silk robe and perfectly straight hair) and shows us how she glams up at home in under two minutes. Rather than ingesting an Omega XL capsule, Johnson breaks it open and rubs the fish oil supplement directly on her skin for an instant glow. She also works mostly with her fingers to smooth on cream foundation (I spy Dermablend) and to apply glue to false eyelashes without clumping.

What do you think about the 59-year-old fashion icon's makeup routine? Is it simple enough for you to try?
