“Hi! I’m Matilda Rodgers (@matildarodgers) and I am a model, Instagram and YouTube blogger, and artist. I am also studying Event Management at university, so you could say I’m pretty busy! My main focus at the moment though is producing content for my Instagram and YouTube however. I love working with brands and being creative, it combines my love for modelling with my ability to produce my own imagery!
Living in Australia it is extremely hot - and I am known to get super sweaty! But I have found the most amazing foundation primer combo that does not come off no matter how hot it is, and looks flawless in photography. It is the Dermalogica HydraBlur Primer - A pore minimizing primer that actually works! I also sometimes use the Inclinic Platinum Mineral Primer in Luminoso, which makes the skin glow but helps the foundation stick down for good. And for foundation I use Fenty Foundation mixed with Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. The Fenty is too matte for me on its own, but mixed with the Bourjois is it has the perfect coverage and staying power for me.
For skincare I keep it pretty simple and stick with just the basics. Even though I have normal/dry skin, the Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser doesn’t dry me out, but really dissolves all makeup on my face and gives my skin a really good clean. Then I use Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, which is a powder that you mix with water that is so gentle you can use it daily if you need. I use it every two to three days though. I love a nice thick moisturizer that really hydrates my dry areas, and the Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream is amazing! Every so often I slather on this amazing face oil called Go-To Skincare Face Hero Oil that clears up every imperfection on my face and makes me look super radiant and healthy.
I also get a Dermapen treatment done at Peche Medispa every so often which really makes a difference in how quickly my face heals any blemishes that pop up. It’s awesome!”
