A cosmetic surgeon provided insight into Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu’s ‘natural look’ before she made her Love Island debut.
It’s safe to say the 27-year-old bombshell has cemented herself in the show’s hall of fame after her explosive scenes with Davide Sanclimenti and Amber Beckford.
While Ekin-Su is yet to comment on her facial procedures, aesthetics practitioner Dr Rosh uploaded a before and after snap of the star on Instagram and revealed that she went to see him ‘in preparation of entering the villa.’
‘We decided to add subtle changes but still keeping everything looking very natural. First, we added tear trough filler to fill the hollows and give her that gorgeous “8 hour beauty sleep” refreshed look 😊.
‘Then, I feathered in some filler into the lateral cheeks to soften her middle cheek fullness and jaw filler to lift and create more definition .’
It was recently revealed that the fan favourite could earn between £10,000 and £15,000 for just one Instagram post when she leaves the villa and is, presumably, bombarded with opportunities.
‘Although she may have rubbed a few people up the wrong way in the villa, Ekin has certainly made herself stand out to viewers, and any brands watching,’ Lily Freeman, PR Expert and Account Manager at W, told Metro.co.uk.
‘Not only will brands be wanting to work with her, she’s also in a unique position of being a professional actress, so this could be what really catapult her within the UK entertainment scene.
‘It might be that she starts doing more engaging brand content, like dating columns or TV ads, as opposed to the usual social partnerships you see from Love Islanders after leaving the villa.’
In terms of how much she could earn for partnerships, she added: ‘It depends on what the partnership is and what the deliverables are, but I’d imagine for branded content on socials she’d be looking at making £10-15K per post.’
However, inside the villa, she might be running low on options. Although she’s coupled up with Jay Younger it looks as if his head might turn to Paige Thorne, after he kissed her in a challenge (although she did call him the most untrustworthy islander, so whether his feelings would be reciprocated is yet to be seen).
And judging by tonight’s teaser, it’s all set to come to a head between Ekin-Su and Jay after he makes it clear that he wants to get to know Paige better. Will they be able to work things out?
Or will one of them find themselves recoupling with another islander?
Love Island returns tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
