I want to share features with you all from real models. Not necessarily your run of the mill size 0 bland catwalk models, but real people, who wear awesome clothes, with their own quirky ways and unique looks and personality. This lady is a pin up icon, a great model, great look, tattoos, red gorgeous hair, hair and makeup skills to die for and a body to go with it! The complete package!

You'll get to learn even more about this gorgeous lady in a few simple questions. Ms Cherry Dollface has many accomplishments, as a model, and as an everyday gal. Not only does she have two fabulous full sleeves paired with a great retro look, but she's also a fighter.

Cherry Dollface has transformed into a huge name in the pin-up modelling industry over the last few years.  Cherry has been featured in several magazines, and the shoots just kept coming. Along the way, Cherry has also helped support soldiers in Iraq, modelled for several big time clothing companies, attended school full-time, and personally fought against a heart defect.

If you haven’t watched any of her many brilliant videos make sure you check them out on you tube to find out exactly how she gets those amazing retro hairstyles!

How did the name Cherry Dollface come about?

It was actually my email address and the first magazine I was in published me as that and it just kind of stuck!

What is the best thing about being Cherry Dollface?

All of the amazingly sweet and inspiring messages that I get to read from my followers every day.

Your ‘YouTube’ videos are famous; the tutorials you do are brilliant and so helpful. How did they come about?

I modeled for a long time and always styled myself for my shoots. A friend of mine suggested I try YouTube so I did and it seemed to take off so I just kept doing more and more!
You give a lot of help and advice, where do you turn for style advice?

Anywhere I can. Magazines, internet, friends, old movies.

How many tattoos do you have?

Too many to count!

Can you tell us what some of those are?
I have lots of random things that tell the story of my life. Zombies, the English Beat girl, my flatline from heart surgery, stars, and right now I am working on a huge mermaid back piece.

What’s your favourite tattoo?

Right now my back because it is the most epic!
Do you have future tattoo plans? Who does your work?

I am just trying to finish my back right now. It is so painful! But I don't have plans for more at this point. I get my work all over but most of my stuff has been from Eno at Guru Tattoo, Jason Bradbury at Atomic Art, and Mel Cox.
How did you come into modeling?

I was ta a car show and someone snapped a pic of me that ended up on the cover of a magazine. After that it just kind of took off.
Do your tattoos benefit you in the modeling industry or make it harder to find work?

Depends on what I am modeling. For sure they help with tattoo and car magazines. When I first started there were hardly any tattooed girls doing it so I had an edge. Now there are so many tattooed girls it is almost a disadvantage. I never tried fashion modeling because I am too short but I would definitely say if you want to be a commercial or fashion model, being heavily tattooed will severely hinder you.
You are being photographed a lot of the time. Looking after yourself must play a big part in your life. What are you favourite beauty products and why?

I love Makeup Forever... especially their base products. I use L'Oreal products on my face. Their Revitalift line is lovely. I also use Clinique. And my favorite thing ever is my Clarisonic. It keeps my skin amazing!

Do you have a set beauty routine?

Yeah. I pretty much put on and take off my makeup the same way every day. I am totally a creature of habit.
Who is your beauty idol?

Gwen Stefani is amazing. I want to look like her when I am 45. Heck, I want to look like her now!!
On that note how to you keep yourself in shape?

I try to go to the gym at least three times a week. I actually really love cardio so it is easy to stay motivated. I read a lot of books at the gym.
What is your diet like?

Not as disciplined as it should be. I do try to eat a well-rounded diet though-- lots of whole grains, fruits, veggies... But I am a dessert junkie and I love bacon. So I try to just moderate things.
What are your must have pieces of make up?

Makeup Forever matte primer and HD foundation. Kat Von D liquid liner. And Benefit They're Real mascara.
What is your favourite perfume?

Right now I am into Bombshell by Victorias Secret.

What is your approach to fashion?

I don't follow trends. I see what I like and I buy it. I don't think there should be rules. I am a rule breaker!
What advice would you give to any woman who wants to look glamorous?

By a great red lipstick, a pair of fake lashes, some thigh high stockings, and a sky high pair of heels!!
Where are you favourite places to shop?

I am a bargain shopper so I am always shopping at new places. Local boutiques, online shops, vintage stores. I actually have a profile up on where you can see all of my favorite clothing and beauty products and buy them directly from the site. It's so addicting!
Who are your biggest inspirations and why?

My best friend Caitlin. She is insanely strong and beautiful. Most of my inspirations are personal-- people that inspire me because I know them as people and love them.

What advice would you give to a girl reading this interested in getting into the modeling industry?

I am starting a new series on YouTube about how to be a pinup model step by step. I have one up now that gives you the basics. It is actually really helpful.
