Sixtine, a 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie, gained a large online following through her Swimsuit Series, in which she documented her hunt for the perfect mid-size bikini. The model, who was photographed by Yu Tsai in Dominica for this year’s magazine, now has a following of almost one million across TikTok and Instagram.
The body neutrality influencer’s social platforms are safe and encouraging spaces where she shares candid and encouraging content, from self-love and body positivity-related snippets to updates on her dating life in New York City.
She also loves a good ’fit check and “get ready with me” video, in which she shares her favorite beauty products, apparel and accessories of the moment.
When we asked the 25-year-old to share her everyday makeup routine with us, she had a total blast, opening up about her summer full of modeling gigs and lots of travel. She’s enjoying the slowness of fall, while also gearing up for the holidays—her “busiest” time of the year.
“My favorite part of Sports Illustrated and being a rookie is the family it has brought me,” she gushes of her experience with the brand. “The friends and family, and just people who are so kind and fun to hang around—that’s what I love.”
Sixtine prefaced her video by noting that she is “by no means a makeup artist,” so we should “take everything with a grain of salt.” She loves doing her makeup even if she’s not going out, as she said getting dolled up just makes her feel good.
Here’s exactly what she uses in her everyday glam routine, from skincare to makeup:
Sixtine knows that the key to good glam is a hydrated and clean base. She admits that she is blessed with good skin—and has always tried to keep her routine limited. She starts her morning with an ice-roller and then applies a few key products.
“I am obsessed with this one,” Sixtine says as she uses her fingers and knuckles to give herself a face massage. “I honestly keep my skincare to a minimum. Like I think less is more with skincare.”

“It‘s awesome. There’s no white cast,” she notes of this tinted face sunscreen. “It goes on really nice. It doesn’t like dry out my skin. Very important though—I always use sunscreen.”
“Because my skin is pretty clear, I don’t have to use a lot of foundation,” Sixtine shares. “I like [the Dior one] because it goes on really light, doesn’t feel like foundation and just evens everything out.”
“I don’t do much to my brows just because I have bangs... not much is happening up there,” she says of how her eyebrows are often covered by her fringe.
“This is my favorite palette. I use this almost every single day,” the model says. “I don’t normally care too much about making my eyeliner wing perfect, because I just go and fix it up with concealer.”
She uses the neutral brown all over her lid and the darkest brown shade smudged out as eyeliner, which really brings out the blue in her eyes
“Selena knows what she’s doing,” Sixtine says of this mascara.
Sixtine uses the “She’s Bronzed” shade of this best-selling cream and powder contour duo and applies it on the hollows of her cheeks with a dense brush.
“The Rare Beauty blush goes so hard,” she says and warns that “a little goes a long way,” so use a light hand.
Sixtine sets her makeup with this best-selling no-budge setting spray (when she remembers this step, she notes).
“It’s my favorite color,” she says as she smacks her lips together and smiles bright. “Look at that.”
