My makeup bag secrets... with Claudia Schiffer

42-year-old Claudia Schiffer was the star of the Guess' 30-year anniversary shoot, a role that made her famous in 1989. Twenty-three years on, she's hardly changed a bit.

Iconic supermodel Claudia Schiffer allows us take a peak inside her makeup bag.

The statuesque beauty shared her beauty secrets with Stella Magazine, revealing everything from her skincare heroes and favourite fragrances.

The 41-year-old supermodel still looks stunning. She's the mother of three children with director husband Matthew Vaughan - they are parents to Caspar, Clementine and Cosima.

The German model also divulged her most embarrassing beauty memories and how she found her feet in the world of modelling.

"When I turned 14, my mother gave me a pot of cream and explained that from now on, I was to moisturise. She also took me to her hairdresser to get a “Nena” (of 99 Luftballons fame) layered haircut," the 44-year-old said.

"I always planned to be a lawyer and join my father in his law firm one day, although my secret dream was to be a designer. I doodled bathing suits and dresses all day. That all changed once I was spotted by a model agent in a disco in Düsseldorf."

"I think you should take care of your health by counting chemicals and sugar content, not calories. I also use great moisturisers and work out by doing long walks with our dogs, plus yoga and pilates with my trainer David Higgins," the mum-of-three mused.

She cited her top beauty icons as 1960s and 1970s legends, Jane Birkin, Lauren Hutton and Charlotte Rampling.
