It’s the time of the year when you can’t step outside the house without being sure that, within the next five minutes, your face will have a thousand tiny streams of sweat running down without a care in the world, ruining all the hard work you put in with your foundation and your trusty beauty blender. You curse the muggy weather but there’s little you can actually do about your body’s natural response to the warm and humid weather.
This is where you and Heidi Klum differ.
The German-American supermodel stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to chat about her new fashion-based reality competition Making The Cut in a stunning Missoni gown. While discussing the new competition, Klum revealed that she has a hidden talent that we all covet.
Klum revealed that she has trained herself to not sweat in the face. According to the supermodel, all the hours spent in front of harsh studio lights with make-up artists always rushing in to ensure her face remains matte and beautiful, have given her the ability to control her sweat at will.
“They come all the time and they will put that powder puff in your face 24/7,” she said, “So I’m like: Don’t sweat in the face. I just tell myself not to sweat in the face!”
But because the Universe is fair, her superhuman ability is limited to her face only
“I sweat everywhere where you don’t see it,” she joked, gesturing at her underarms, “That’s my talent. It’s hidden, because I don’t show it.”
While she didn’t reveal the exact training regimen one can follow to ensure we win the battle against the hot and humid weather that refuses to quit, she did reveal that her Making the Cut co-host and fellow Project Runway alum Tim Gunn is even more blessed than she is.
“He does not wear any make-up,” Klum revealed, “Where I spend two hours on all of this, like, he just shows up … no foundation, no powder, nothing.”
