Mode Around The Globe: Alison Bowles
What’s a step in your skincare routine that you cannot go a day without?
MOISTURIZE! I have dry skin and moisture adds color and plumpness back into my face! I cannot live without it. I love a really good thick and rich moisturizer.
Favorite beauty products?
I love the Josie Maran lip & cheek oil for a natural sun kissed glow paired with either Chanel Soleil de Tan Cream bronzer or the Fenty Beauty Contour Stick. Cream products are my go-to for a nice healthy natural look- especially living in the Miami heat!
What’s your go-to lip combo?
The OG- Charlotte Tilbury PillowTalk Lip Pencil + Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick Balm in 09 NUDE SHEER, with City Lips Clear Gloss over top. I wear the City Lips Clear on my lips 24/7 because it naturally plumps and hydrates my lips. My discount code is ALISONB!
What was your favorite part of the Modeliste and Image Skincare event?
The team at this event was so friendly and really put me in a great mood for the rest of the day. During Swim Week there can be a lot of negativity and it was great to be around positive people. Running around from show to show, it was so wonderful to spend a morning being pampered by the Image Skincare team with a rejuvenating facial!
What’s been a highlight of 2022 so far and what’re you looking forward to most in this current moment?
Walking 13 Miami Swim Week shows this year was a huge breakthrough for me. I have been working my booty off to get into the shows and this year my hard work finally came to fruition. It was always difficult for me because of my height- I was not allowed to cast. I am really looking forward to continuing to break barriers in the industry.
What can people expect to see when visiting @alisonbowles?
On my Instagram you can find modeling and travel content, but also keeping it real with my audience and creating a space where we can connect and build community. I always want to continue providing value to my audience- whether it is how to model, create travel guides, business advice, or simply giving inspiration.
How do you hope to influence people through your social media platform(s)?
I influence people to go after their dreams and pursue their passions. Many people are afraid to step out of their comfort zone, afraid of what people might think. I encourage my followers to be unapologetic in their pursuits like I have been. If there isn’t a way, you make a way. I always want to continue to encourage my followers to live out what they feel called to do, and help them build the confidence to do so.
Go-to outfit for a dinner out with the girls?
I love a good body contouring maxi dress! Keeps it comfy, simple, yet effortlessly sexy. The SKIMS dress is my favorite go-to for sure.
What’s your favorite fashion trend at the moment?
I really love the satin slip dress trend and European summer style. I love a good, effortless, classy look.
Favorite beauty trend?
The fox eye trend for sure. It gives such a sexy, snatched look!
What would you title this current chapter of your life?
“Hot Girl Summer.” lol jk. I would title this current chapter “Arising” because this is the season of my life where all of the setbacks I have had start to make sense. The setbacks paved a better way for the comeback. I have worked so hard the past few years to get to where I am and God has really given me even more than I have asked for. God has proven to be faithful and I owe all of the Glory to him.
What can people expect to see from you in 2022? Any projects you can share?
I have a few really exciting TV Interviews coming up, shoots for MAXIM Magazine, a Times Square billboard and of course NYFW coming up very soon! Stay tuned on my Instagram (@Alisonbowles) & YouTube for Official announcements.
A fun fact our Modeliste readers would be surprised to know about you.
I’m a girly girl but I love hockey! I used to be an Ice Girl for the St. Louis Blues (my hometown) and it was so much fun!
What’s your favorite Image Skincare product?
I love the tinted sunscreen! Not only is it great for glowing skin on “no-makeup” days, but I am a huge advocate for SPF after having Skin Cancer at 22! You can read more skin cancer facts on my non-profit website www.youvradiance.com.
What would you like to say to your fans?
I love and appreciate all of my fans so much. Thank you for always staying connected, encouraging me, and building this amazing community!
