Locker Room Look Book is Well+Good’s new video series where we share (and you’ll score) post-workout beauty and style tips from white-hot wellness stars.

You might know Emily DiDonato from one of her (many, seriously glamorous) glossy magazine ads—or maybe you’re one of her one million followers on Instagram.

But did you know the top model is also a major fitness buff, a certified yogi, and a recently minted nutritionist?

Work with your hot-yoga flush—not against it.

We followed the extremely busy multitasker to cool-girl New York City yoga spot Y7, where we learned all of DiDonato’s post-sweat secrets. Her key locker room takeaways: Opt for a cleanser without all the harsh chemicals, work with your hot-yoga flush—not against it—and employ bronzer for major eye-popping wow-factor.

On top of copping skills from professionals (“my favorite makeup artist always uses her hands” she says of her low-key foundation technique), she admits to gleaning “surprisingly good tips from 16-year-old YouTube beauty vloggers.”

Her resulting advice is daytime-makeup gold. “I don’t want to look too overdone, especially if I have a work meeting,” the model explains.
