One of our favourite international models we have worked with is the wholesome, Californian girl, Natalie Pack. With a substantial 157K Instagram following, it was becoming a finalist in the 12th round of America's Next Top Model at 19 that cemented her career as a top model. Today, this leggy, honey-blonde is most comfortable in swimwear, and with a stack of global advertising campaigns to her name including brands such as Jockey, Billabong and Guess, she is what's known in the business as an 'it girl'. Editor Trudi Brewer chats with our Insta-star on all things beauty.

What age did you start your career?
It’s hard for me to say, I was scouted in my high school years, but I was into my studies. I put modelling on the back burner because my education came first. I didn’t fully commit to my career until after I graduated.
What campaigns are you working on right now?
I’ve been a campaign girl for GUESS for over four years now, and will be leaving for Lake Como, Italy this month to walk in their Holiday ‘18 fashion show.
What's always in your beauty bag?
Everything I own is natural. I use chemical and paraben-free beauty products. I always have Josie Maran Argan Oil highlighting stick, ILIA lipstick crayon in Come Undone, and Honest Beauty’s Truly Lush Mascara + Lash Primer on me.
What fragrance are you wearing right now?
Organic essential oil blends are my go-to. Ambre Blends roll-on natural fragrances are my favourite. Once on the skin they blend with your body’s chemistry, creating this unique fragrance that’s perfect for you. I love the Unmasque and Ahnu Pure Essential Oil sents.
What fashion item are you obsessed with right now?
Easy, slip-on dresses that don’t require much effort and are comfortable. I go for maximum comfort at all times with fashion, and Reformation's knit dresses are the only things in my closet that stop me from living in my sweatpants. They're totally cute, I am totally obsessed.
Some of Packs favourite beauty buys include: ILIA Lip Crayon, US$24. Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara + Primer, $22. L. Erickson Ponytail holders, US$10. Josie Maran Argan Oil Moonstone Glow Highlighter Stick, $39.
What's your fave skincare product?
I’m in love with The Honest Company’s and their new Honest Beauty line. They have a fabulous salicylic acid cleanser, and retinol night cream I swear by.
What hair product would you never be without?
L. Erickson Ponytail holders. I can’t live without them. When I’m not working, my hair is back and out of my face. They’re the only ponytail holders that actually hold my hair day long.
What's your best beauty tip?
To keep a healthy, grain-free, dairy-free, processed-food-free diet. All beauty starts on the inside. Eating the right foods will not only make your skin glow, but it will keep you lean, dramatically slow down the ageing process, and boost your mood. Also, everyone knows a smile is what truly makes somebody beautiful.
