Sunday Funday and only a couple days left of our big event. As it is our 10th anniversary, we wanted to share the love (as well as lacquer & cosmetics) with everyone – so meet some of our extended family! These women are beauty insiders and we are privileged to share their passion for beauty. Each day during our 10 days of Friends & Family, we will highlight a different bezzie, so make sure to check back with us daily to get to know the rest of our #instamates. You will fall in love with these kindred spirits just like we have!
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
For me, my blog is pretty much a public diary and my favorite part of blogging is coming up with new posts. I love coming up with new ideas every day-they get me excited even if some prove to be a challenge! I used to be a full-time model, and now I am basically a model for my own blog. I love sharing my style and my recipes and seeing my readers evoke my style tips or try out my recipes and beauty tricks.
How did you discover your lobe for beauty?
I used to be a pageant girl, so you can imagine how much makeup I would have to apply for a pageant or red carpet event. At first I was such a stranger to beauty products (my mom did not let my sister and I wear too much makeup as teens) and I basically looked like a hot mess and hated having to dedicate hours to getting ready. But after so much time in front of the camera as Miss USA and as a model, I learned how to properly apply makeup and it became less of a hassle. Suddenly I walking into makeup stores with a new and exciting agenda, and now I love trying new products.
What’s your go-to colour?
I feel super confident in red. I guess technically I wear it every day because I am a redhead, but when I am in doubt of what kind of color to put on my lips, I always choose red.
What do you love about WINK Liquid Liner?
I love how SMOOTH and easy it is to apply! For many years I AVOIDED liners because I do not exactly have the most relaxed hands in the world, and the WINK Liquid Liner’s tip helps keep my lines steady. It also doesn’t smudge (trust me, it definitely stays on!) and doesn’t fade as the day goes on.
