Duckie Thot is the youngest sister of the family vlogger, Nikki Perkins. Nikki hails from the YouTube channel, ‘Jaimie & Nikki.’ Duckie Thot took a major step and moved from Melbourne, Australia to find model work in Brooklyn, New York. While in Australia, Thot appeared on the television series, Australia’s Next Top Model.
However, Duckie wasn’t getting much work in Australia.
“I just thought — why am I here? So I was just like, ‘Let me make the executive decision to move to New York. I’m not getting my coins in Australia.'”
After just one year in Brooklyn, Duckie cultivated a mind-blowing resume. Thot has strutted the catwalk and starred in campaigns for the streetwear brand, Misbhv and Moschino. Duckie also appeared in shows for Kanye West, Helmut Lang/Shayne Oliver, and, Fenty x Puma by Rihanna.
Duckie sat down with W Magazine and talked about beauty and health. The model described her look as being minimalistic and said, “less is more!”
Inside her medicine cabinet, Duckie is certain to have coconut oil, lavender oil eye moisturizer, a lip scrub, SK-II night cream and a light face mask. Duckie’s best advice for maintaining healthy skin is to keep your skin hydrated. To accomplish this, Duckie said that she drinks a ton of water. Thot said that she doesn’t use too many products on her skin and added that eating the right foods also plays a major part in how her skin appears.
More advice Duckie gave is not to sleep with makeup on and to wear SPF 30 — even in the winter. The model said that she stays moisturized and can’t leave the house without lip balm or hand lotion.
As for her nails, she likes to keep things “clean,” and “short” and usually opts for a nude polish.
Duckie also keeps it simple when it comes to maintaining her health: The model drinks a lot of water, gets enough sleep, keeps a clean diet, and exercises.
Kanye West was a major catalyst for Duckie’s modeling career. Thot revealed to Vogue that she had just left a casting in New York when “Kim, from Kanye’s team, ran out after me.”
“‘You have to come upstairs! Kanye will love your look!’ she cried. I didn’t even know Kanye was in the same building!”
Duckie followed her and ended up shooting a magazine cover that very day.
