As we approach the end of March, we find out there’s a lot more to Liu than meets the surface. In the second part of our interview with our March Model of the Month, Liu Wen, she reveals her beauty secrets and the challenges of learning another language.
What are your favorite pieces to wear?
I love all kinds of shoes, bags, hats and jeans.
What are three things that you can not travel without?
Facial masks (I need them to protect my skin at any moment), compressive bags (so I can put all my stuff more easily into my luggage), and eye-drops (the best protection for tired eyes).
What do you like most about modeling?
The profession can bring me to a lot of different places. And it gives me chance to try the latest creation of designers.
With modeling, you do a lot of traveling but is there a place you wish you could still visit?
Paris. Even being there for many times, I never really had time to walk around to appreciate this city. I really wish I could just sit at a café to have a nice cup of coffee quietly.
Once you became a model, what surprised you the most about the job?
It is quite different from what I imagined. Before I became a professional model, I thought being model is just about dressing up and walking for some meters on the runway. But when I really entered this world, I found out that this profession needs also a lot of effort. Of course every profession needs hard work to be good, but this one needs effort and a lot of physical energy.
You are currently mastering a new language–English. What’s the most challenging part about learning another language?
I’m not a big talker. But learning a foreign language, you have to keep talking, no matter if it is right or wrong, with an accent or not, you just have to talk all the time!
