Doutzen Kroes ''always'' curls her eyelashes.

The 29-year-old model - who has son Phyllon, three, and daughter Myllena, four months, with husband Sunnery James - tries to keep her beauty regime simple when she isn't working and has learned some quick shortcuts to keep her looking her best with little time or effort.

She explained: ''I keep my skincare and makeup as easy as possible. In the morning I shower and rinse my face, then use a L'Oréal BB cream - I don't have to worry about moisturiser, foundation or concealer when I use a hydrating BB cream.

''And curling my lashes makes such a big difference. Even if I'm not wearing mascara, I always give them a quick curl to open up my eyes. But usually I wear a little mascara and just keep the lip natural with a balm.

''If I'm applying oil on my baby, I'll use a little on myself, too!''

When it comes to her evening look, the Victoria's Secret beauty favours dark make-up.

She told Australian Elle magazine: ''For a night out, I like lots of black. I like to do black eyeliner, smoky eyes and brown eye shadow on top to lighten it up a little, and then a natural lip.''
