Name: Sui He
Occupation: Top fashion model
Birthdate: September 23, 1990
New role: face of Shiseido beauty
Hometown: Wenzhou, China
Sui He: In her own words:
Growing up in Wenzhou, China, I always knew people who left our area to live in Europe or the U.S., so for me, it was natural to imagine growing up and having an international life. I won a modeling contest when I was 17, and that set my career in motion. I just wanted to see where it could take me, because I have always loved to travel. The world is full of so many incredible places, and I want to see them all. Now, I split my time between New York City and Bejing, and I feel like I have the best of both worlds – I keep the traditions I love in my home country, and in America, I have access to amazing opportunities.
I’ve always been obsessed with skincare. So representing Shiseido, the skincare powerhouse, is both an honor and a dream come true. I love the way my skin feels every day and every night using Shiseido products.
I’m just a regular woman – a daughter, a sister, a friend. I like to do things that make a difference, but I also like to just laugh, be silly and make funny faces.
What can I even say about Dick Page? He’s brilliant with color. I’m always amazed by his choices and ideas. He’s so well known, and yet he’s really warm and down to earth. I just love hanging out with him.
My skin is mine for life, and I intend to keep it in its best condition, forever. To me, skincare is one of the greatest investments I can make in the way I look now, and the way I will look for the rest of my life.
When I choose makeup to wear, I first look at the color. You need to love the color. Then, when it goes on really easily feels great, smells nice and does its job better than you expect, that’s when I am hooked. When technology and artistry are both working together. Shiseido makeup is like that for me.
Relaxing, experiencing nature and laughing. That’s what rejuvenates me and makes me feel happy. I believe that when I feel happy, that’s when I look beautiful.
I was raised with a very strong work ethic. I believe that if you do a job, you should do it with all your heart and soul. Modeling demands focus and stamina, so I’m lucky that I love what I do enough to give it my all, every day. I keep in mind that it’s not about me looking good. It’s about making what I’m wearing look good, in my special way. That’s the creative challenge that I love.
