Michelle Dee's Beauty Picks

After launching her modeling career, Michelle Dee has been turning heads with her talent and fierce persona. Following in the footsteps of her mother Melanie Marquez, only time can tell what she’ll be up to next.

You can instantly feel a sense of calmness in the room when Michelle walks in. Her laidback personality extends to her surroundings, and everyone working with her appeared somewhat relaxed for the entire duration of the photoshoot. With so many projects to balance, her easygoing disposition will most definitely help her in anything that comes her way. So, we can’t help but ask, what’s her take on beauty, skincare and fitness?

“I don’t usually put on a lot of makeup, but I do have a few items that I think I use a lot.”, says Michelle. “These include my facial wash, eyebrow pencil, eyebrow liner, contour kit, day cream, and night cream.”


Her beauty philosophy:

“Less is more. Beauty isn’t measured by how thick your makeup is, but by how much confidence you have in yourself to carry what you have on.”


Beauty Icons:

“I’m a big fan of Miranda Kerr and Kendall Jenner. Also, I may be biased but I really admire my mother. I look up to her a lot, I wouldn’t be who I am today if not for her.”


#1 Skin Tip:

“I always make sure that from time to time, I have a day where I give my skin air to breathe. It’s one of the things I feel is very important, and enjoyable.”

On staying fit:

“I do mostly strength and cardio workouts. I also like yoga and cycling when I’m in the mood for a change in my routine.”
