The former supermodel has picked up a lot of beauty tips during her career. During the 80s, she worked with make-up artist Wayne Bandy a great deal. He gave her some great advice, including how to keep her eyebrows looking natural.

“He used to use a graphite pencil - an actual pencil that you draw with - to fill in your brows. For people whose brows are really dark, it’s easier to find pencils, but for me, if you put on something that’s too brown you can see that it’s too reddish and it looks ugly. But the ash of the graphite pencil looks really good for blondes and light brunettes,” she revealed.

The 46-year-old model has been open about the ageing process in the past. She knows it can be hard, and thinks they are some things which can help women look their best.

Paula advises choosing cosmetics carefully and not caking them on.

“Here’s the deal with make- up. I love it - I would sell it if I could,” she laughed to style.com.

“Yes [I could be an Avon lady]! I would have to have them let me make my own make-up, though, because I have all these ideas. But the older you get, the less you can use - you look better the less you put on. That doesn’t mean the older you get you shouldn’t wear make-up, of course. Lashes for me are always important. I really like Dior show - it works really well. And then you always want nice skin. I like foundations but they have to be super-light and light-diffusing.”
