Filipino-American model Kelsey Merritt is having a moment.

After walking the runway for Victoria’s Secret last week, Merritt was featured yesterday on the official Vogue website where she showed off her beauty routine in a video.

Merritt’s beauty routine consists of using coconut oil to moisturize her skin and aloe vera to take care of her hair. And get this — she grows her own aloe vera in a plant pot.

She shared that she likes using a foundation that’s darker than her natural skin color because she likes to appear tanned. Merritt also had a tip for ladies who have no idea how to apply mascara.

She said: “[Just] wiggle at the bottom and then drag [the wand] up.”

She makes it sound so easy.

In the video, she also talked about her journey as a model and what a big deal it was for many Filipinos.

She said: “It means a lot to me and the people back home because they love Victoria’s Secret so much. And they’ve always wanted a Philippine model to walk. It’s not just success for me — it’s also success for them.”

Watch her entire video below:

Merritt is in good company. Other celebrities who have shown off their beauty routine on Vogue include Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

And Merritt just added another achievement — she now has 1 million followers on Instagram.

Here’s a screenshot that she shared on her Instagram Stories right before she hit 1 million.
