Sofia Richie, the 19-year-old model and social media star, might be grabbing headlines for her relationship with Scott Disick but she's also making serious waves in the fashion and beauty industry.

Lionel Richie's daughter has amassed millions of Instagram followers thanks to her edgy aesthetic and fun-loving persona and has landed major campaigns, from Tommy Hilfiger to Chanel. Here, she opens her makeup bag for GLAMOUR UK and shares her grape oil skincare secret, her hack for looking more awake and the best piece of beauty advice her famous father ever gave her.

"I'm a freak when it comes to skincare"

I'm a freak when it comes to cleaning my skin. I swear by the as it keeps my skin clear and makes sure it's really clean. It's got exfoliating acids to unblock pores. I absolutely love budget sheet masks, I love the one as it keeps my skin super hydrated when I am constantly travelling for work.

"My three-step makeup mantra"

I keep it really light with my makeup. The only three products I use are a foundation, an eyebrow pencil, and the Giorgio Armani Powder, which I use to create a really subtle contour. I never do a full contour, though.

"My secret hack for super smooth skin"

To keep my skin silky smooth, I use the about three times a week. Then and then I put grape seed oil all over my skin; it's just a weird little thing that I've been doing for a long time and it really works for me!

"How I look more awake when I'm constantly on the go"

If you put a white eyeliner pencil on the waterline of your eye, I find that makes you look more awake.

"The real reason I always wear my hair in a slick bun"

You may have noticed that I always wear my hair in a slicked-back bun. People just think that I like the hairstyle. I do, but the real reason I always opt for that style? I'm really just trying to keep it all together because I usually have coconut oil all over my hair as a leave-in conditioner.

"How I keep my body toned for the runway"

I'm kind of bad of working out on my own. I'm not disciplined to run a mile so I usually have to take a class. I SoulCycle a lot. I don't take any wellness supplements or anything like that, I just swear by drinking a LOT of water for keeping healthy.

"The best piece of beauty advice my dad gave me"

The best beauty tip a celebrity ever gave me came from my dad [Lionel Richie]. He always tells me, "Don't pluck your eyebrows because they won't grow back, like mine!", so I've never touched them out of fear!
