She urged other women to remember that “you are never too old” and “it’s never too late”.
The content creator shares behind-the-scenes looks of her modelling jobs on social media, including stripping down to swimwear and underwear for the camera.
Recently, she worked on an ‘intimates’ campaign with Australian brand Myer.
Luisa credits her success as a model and influencer to being consistent with posting selfies online.
At 23-years-old, she was studying Business Communications at university, before going on to do a number of office jobs.
But as the years ticked by, Luisa felt more compelled to turn her creativity into a pay cheque.
“I am a creative person, so I adore seeing creatives share their talents on these platforms,” she told Sheer Luxe in 2021.
“I also love the fact that talent is so accessible and can be seen so easily on the likes of Instagram.”
Luisa also explained how she came to embrace her grey hair after feeling societal pressure to cover it with dye.
“I discovered my first grey hair at 16 and, as a result, I started colouring my roots to hide them using dark and light brown tones,” she said.
“It wasn’t until 2019 when I decided I was done with trying to hide them and I wanted to opt for lighter, cooler tones to match my roots.
“The journey was a long one, but eventually I consulted an expert at a salon, had a silver toner treatment and let that sit for a while to mentally adjust to seeing myself with grey hair.
“The rest, as they say, is history.”
Luisa’s fanbase regularly gush over her social media post, telling her she looks “sexier than ever”.
Her hacks for looking your best as your skin matures include always wearing SPF and never skipping moisturiser.
“Now I’m older, moisturisation is key,” she said. “As my skin has matured, I’ve slowly tweaked my routine to add in the extra hydration it needs.
“I always apply moisturising products in the evening, then again first thing in the morning, using formulas like hyaluronic acid to really layer up and quench.
“My biggest advice with mature skin is to let everything fully absorb before applying any make-up.
“While skin needs hydration, it needs to be done in thin layers so you never get any pilling (rolling) of your products.”
