It's not often one gets the opportunity to learn the secrets of a top model. But lucky for us, we got to pick supermodel and leader of Happy Hearts Fund Petra Nemcova's brain.

As a survivor of the 2004 tsunami, Nemcova has seen firsthand the effects of a natural disaster. It's for that reason she leads Happy Hearts Fund, a charity that spreads awareness and raises money to rebuild safe schools in natural disaster–affected areas. To help support her efforts, Happy Hearts Fund teamed up with Clinique for two limited-edition pieces, Happy Heart Perfume Spray ($39) and a Happy Hearts Fund Chubby Stick ($17). 

In addition to coveting the latest pieces from Clinique and HHF, Nemcova revealed three other essential beauty products you can find in her makeup bag right now: argan oil, dry shampoo and celeb favorite, MAC Matte Lipstick in Russian Red ($16).

But her beauty bag wasn't the only secret she shared with us. Nemcova divulged the best beauty advice she's ever received and still follows:

"Use Manuka honey ($23) as a cleanser in the morning. You make your skin damp, use a little on your fingers, leave it for a little and then rinse off. It’s gentle and plumps up the skin a little."

·         What's one beauty resolution you have for 2015? (Example: Next year I'm making a resolution to never skip applying night cream!)

To make sure I get a good night’s sleep as often as possible

 

·         What's the best beauty advice someone's ever gave you?

This is a fun one.  Use Manuka honey as a cleanser in the morning.  You make your skin damp, use a little on your fingers, leave it for a little and then rinse off.  It’s gentle and plumps up the skin a little.
