Long before signing with Wilhelmina Models, Olesia Anisimovich was just a young girl living in Krasnodar, Russia. Les grew up surrounded by nature — not far from the shores of the Black Sea, where her family owned an organic garden. Contrary to her upbringing, Les now spends her days amongst skyscrapers, cameras, and an endless array of bright yellow taxis. After years of countless makeup applications and exposure to pollution that big cities are notorious for, Les found the antidote to managing her skin with a natural beauty regimen.
Olesia’s journey to radiant & healthy skin eventually lead her to develop a line of organic, handmade, skincare treatments- appropriately named A Model Makes! It comes as no surprise that her past sensory experiences serve as inspiration when creating her signature plant-based skincare products. The line, which consists of scrubs and cleansing oils, is composed of ingredients the Russian beauty obtains herself from a garden in the Hamptons. Not only is she committed to utilizing locally sourced ingredients, all of her products are vegan and cruelty free!
A Model Makes allows you to incorporate natural products into your beauty regimen, with the help of organic ingredients such as rose, tangerine, lavender, chia seeds, and green tea. The Floral Coffee Scrub is among Olesia’s most sought-after treatment. It allows you to indulge in the invigorating scent of coffee, while providing rejuvenating and soothing effects to the skin, with the help of rose petals.
