Inspiring Beauty with Erin Heatherton


I chat with Victoria’s Secret ‘angel’ star Erin Heatherton and discuss all things beauty, inspiration and impulse. Recently in the country as an ambassador for Impulse Fragrances Erin shares her beauty regimen and her love for Australia. She also discusses the excitement of shooting the new Impulse fragrance campaign with friends and fellow models Bambi Northwood-Blythe and Zippy Seven.

With so much of you career based upon looks what do you believe is the most important aspect of beauty?

There’s nothing more beautiful than glowing skin, bright eyes, a healthy white smile, and shiny hair. There’s also nothing more radiant than self-respect.

Describe your daily beauty routine?

I love my Clarisonic! I use Ling Skincare face wash, then their oxygen plasma potion, then Aesop SPF 15 facial moisturizer. I love to take a bath and a steam in my tub and veg out before work so I wake up at least an hour before I have to head out.

Do you have a ‘go to’ everyday make-up look?

Tart cheek stain in Tipsy, Fresh tinted lip balm in Rose, Aesop Sage and Zinc spf 15 Facial Hydrating Cream

What made you want to be an ambassador for Impulse fragrances?

We never had Impulse in the US when I was younger and over the years, I’ve loved hearing everyone’s stories about their experiences growing up with it in Oz and what a cultural impact it has had. Apparently you weren’t cool if you didn’t have impulse in your gym bag! I now feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to work on the relaunch of Impulse. When you are on a job with your friends it doesn’t feel like it’s work! It’s also really exciting to be part of a brand that has so much history and so many people remember from when they were younger. It’s an honor to be part of its change.

How was it working in Australia with Bambi and Zippora?

So much fun! Bambi and I used to be neighbors in NYC and so we’ve had some good nights over at each other’s apartments. I got to meet Zippy in NYC on a shoot and have had a great time getting to know her while working, so we were all so looking forward to spending more time all together! It’s such a pleasure to work with close friends.

What is your favourite new Impulse fragrance?

I love Romantic Spark – floral and woody notes are my favorite combination. It has a lovely contrast that suits my feminine but also quite tomboyish personality.

Who inspires you?

My parents – they inspire me. I admire them so much.

What would you say has been your career highlight so far?

Walking in the Victoria’s Secret Show is always a highlight. So much fun!

Being such a successful woman what piece of advice would you offer to all the other women out there trying to achieve their dreams?

Stay true to yourself and do what you love. Explore your passions and curiosities.

What is your favourite place in Australia?

All of it – it’s just my most favourite country to visit. Did you know that after a quick trip to Australia, I decided I loved it so much that I jumped on the next available plane back and spent a few months here at the end of last year!
