* Liu spends roughly 30 minutes per day – 15 minutes in the AM and 15 minutes in the PM – on taking care of her skin.

* When asked what the most important part in her skincare regimen was, the model replied proper cleansing. She also stressed the importance of sleep.

* During Fashion Week, Liu takes extra care of her skin by using deep cleansing treatments 3 times a week and using hydrating paper masks 4 times a week.

* On her off days, Liu likes to go au naturele with just a bit of lip balm.

* If you want to shed a few pounds, Liu suggests eating small meals throughout the day, exercising and trying not to eat after 8 PM.

* Liu is a fan of Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist and MAC makeup.

* Her one must-have beauty product for parties? Lipstick. It is the easiest to rub off so having one handy for touch-ups is a must.

  1. She totally caught my eye out of the many VS models. It’s ashame she’s only featured in one outfit for the show… Her hair isn’t very nice imo though… makes her look kinda dated… I like her hair in Choloe better…
