Jamaican stunner Jeneil Williams shares her beauty secrets (spoiler: it includes flowers!) and reveals her secret talent.

Instead of waiting for fate to happen to her, Jeneil Williams decided to take control of hers. Back in 2005, she decided to enter a modelling competition back home in Jamaica – the Caribbean Model Search. Williams came in second, and landed herself a modelling contract. A decade and numerous covers and campaigns later, she was back as a judge this year. 

The fashion industry should be grateful for the drive Jeneil Williams possessed as a teenager (and still does) – she is truly the perfect model. Her striking features make her ideal for edgy high fashion editorials, her skin glows in beauty campaigns and her athletic figure makes her the perfect fit for fashionable sport brands. Jeneil Williams was a track and field athlete as a teenager, and seemingly steering her career with equal shares of joy and discipline, she still works out several times a week. 

So what are the secrets behind those lean muscles and that flawless complexion? Mostly a good set of genes, we guess – but when we had Ms Williams in the H&M photo studios, we asked her to share some of her beauty and workout routines.
