Brazilian model Gizele Oliveira loves a glow (and scary movies)
There’s going to work… and then there’s working it. Gizele Oliveira does both at the same time. The 25-year-old Brazilian model has graced runways including Cushnie et Ochs, Elie Saab, and most recently, a little lingerie company called Victoria’s Secret.
Is she stunning? Obviously. But to anyone who thinks her appeal starts and stops with her looks… watch her Instagram stories. Before long, you’ll fall for her positive-but-not-Pollyannaish attitude, her love of animals, and her real talk about working out. All this, and she’s funny. Safe to say we’re here for Gizele—on the runway, in the magazines, and in this rundown of her morning and evening routines.
WHAT TIME DO YOU WAKE UP?
If I’m not working, I usually wake up at 9:00 a.m. I love sleeping—a lot.
WHAT DO YOU SLEEP IN?
Usually, I’m naked. It’s my time to feel free!
IS ANYONE IN BED WITH YOU?
Either my boyfriend, my dog Bieber, or both.
WHAT’S YOUR FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS IN THE MORNING?
Taking care of my dog. Feeding him and changing his water.
WHAT’S THE FIRST THING YOU DO WITH YOUR PHONE?
I usually go straight to Instagram. If I have a lot of messages, I answer them first.
WHAT’S THE FIRST THING YOU READ EACH MORNING?
Probably my messages. I have at least three group chats on WhatsApp and they talk a lot.
WHAT’S ON YOUR BEDSIDE TABLE?
Some photos of my family and friends as well as nerdy toys I love—for example, Harry Potter and Stranger Things.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOUR BEDROOM?
That I can be myself and relax at the same time.
WHAT DO YOU EAT AND DRINK FOR BREAKFAST?
I love avocado toast and scrambled eggs. And I love drinking juices!
Who’s the first person you speak to in the morning?
My dog! He loves cuddling in the morning, so as soon as I wake up, I call him over to cuddle with me.
HOW DO YOU MENTALLY PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE DAY?
I like relaxing in the morning and having some time to myself, maybe scrolling through Instagram so I have enough time to wake up properly and do things without rushing.
SHOWER, BATH, OR DO YOU DO IT LATER IN THE DAY?
Showering! I also love washing my hair in the morning so I fully wake up.
WHAT IS YOUR MORNING SKINCARE REGIME?
I have this cream I bought in Portugal; I love and I use it every morning. It makes me feel super-fresh and ready for the day.
WHICH MAKEUP PRODUCTS DO YOU USE ON A DAILY BASIS?
WHAT ARE YOUR A.M. HAIR VIBES?
If I didn’t wash my hair, I don’t brush it. If I did wash it, then I let it dry out naturally.
AT WHAT TIME DO YOU SHIFT TO EVENING MODE?
IN THE EVENING, YOU ARE…
…online shopping! Haha.
IF YOU’RE GOING OUT, HOW DO YOU CHANGE YOUR LOOK?
I put on red lipstick or a little bit of eyeshadow.
What’s your favorite way to relax and unwind in the evening?
Watching movies or TV series. I love horror.
Which TV shows are you watching?
I was watching Ozark and was super obsessed with it. I watched it so fast and I now have to wait for the third season.
WHAT’S THE LAST FILM YOU SAW?
Venom! I love Marvel movies.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE EVENING INDULGENCE?
My guilty pleasure is definitely ordering food. It’s the best.

Adding a cool jacket to my look or putting some lipstick on.
Do you prefer an end-of-day bath or shower?
What is your evening skincare routine?
I usually put moisturizer on and lip balm. Lots of it.
What is your evening hair routine?
I don’t touch my hair as much. At night I put it up in a bun and forget that it’s there.
