Beauty Q&A With March Cover Girl Rebecca Romijn

Written on March 12, 2012 at 11:17 am , by

You can read about FITNESS cover girl and Wella Professionals celebrity ambassador Rebecca Romijn‘s workout and diet secrets in our March issue— but we got her to reveal how she gets those beach waves and that fresh, glowing skin, plus the products she can’t live without.

FITNESS: What’s the one beauty product that never leaves your bag?
Rebecca Romijn: I always carry Wella Ocean Spritz to refresh my hair. It mimics sea water and adds great texture. It’s a very good low-maintenance solution for someone who’s on the go.

FITNESS: What are your haircare, makeup and skincare routines like on a typical day?
RR: I cleanse and moisturize my face in the morning and at night, and never forget sunscreen.

FITNESS: What are your secrets for looking great no matter where you are and what you’re doing? Do you have a go-to makeup look or hairstyle?
RR: I don’t wash my hair every day; in fact I always prefer “second day hair”. It’s easy and it does what I want it to do!

FITNESS: What are you gym bag beauty essentials?
RR: I always carry a hair elastic and bobby pins in my gym bag to put my postworkout hair into a bun. A bun is an easy classic. I also put on a great pair of sunglasses and Smashbox O-Gloss for my lips. The pink shade is natural-looking and perfect on everyone. And I love the texture.

FITNESS: What’s your biggest beauty indulgence?
RR: My biggest beauty indulgence are regular facials, and I splurge on Oyxgen Plasma by Knutek. It’s a miracle-worker, and I use it morning and night when I cleanse. Oxygen helps with fine lines and to heal blemishes.

FITNESS: What’s the best tip you’ve picked up from the makeup, hair and skincare experts you’ve worked with?
RR: The best tip I’ve learned from makeup artists is to regularly use the Clarisonic on my face. Even if I think I’ve removed all my makeup, it’s amazing how much cleaner my face becomes after I use my Clarisonic. It’s possibly the best investment I’ve made in my skincare routine since I’ve been an adult.

Staffer Beauty Snoop: Beauty Intern Jaclyn Smock

Written on September 8, 2011 at 11:03 am , by

This week’s Staffer Beauty Snoop is a bit of a twist, as the subject is me—Jaclyn Smock, the new beauty intern for fall 2011.  Read on for a peek at my primping rituals and must-haves!


Describe your beauty style in three words or less: Feminine, warm and fresh.
What are the three beauty products you can’t live without? Physician’s Formula Mineral Correcting Powder, blush (right now I’m using Salma Hayek Nuance Blush in Apricot) and Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume.
What’s your beauty routine in the morning? I wash my face with Glo Therapeutics Clear Anti-Blemish Cleanser, then I moisturize with Clean & Clear Finishes Mattifying Moisturizer. Next, I spritz on Skindinavia 10 Years Younger Makeup Finish, which helps set my makeup and control my oil and shine. After I do what I call my “pre-face,” I put on Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 and set it with Physicians Formula Mineral Correcting Powder. My skin is very oily so I find that tinted moisturizer works best for my complexion. After my skin tone is evened out, I apply blush, then I add a little e.l.f. Mineral Black Eye Liner on my bottom lids and finish with Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara. Once I’m done with my face, I move onto hair: I work some John Frieda Take Charge Curl Boosting Mousse through my curls, finish with a little bit of TRESemmé Climate Control Finishing Spray, and I’m out the door. This may sound like a lot but it only takes me 15 minutes!
At night? I remove the day’s makeup with Neutrogena Night Calming Cleansing Cloths, wash my face with my cleanser, and top with moisturizer. To finish off my nightly routine, I put Physicians Formula Dark Spot Corrector and Skin Brightener all over my face. The color weirded me out at first (it’s brown) but it really does work!
Post-workout? Once I’m done working out, I head home to shower and wash my face. When I get out, I moisturize and spray Glytone  Acne Back Spray on to ensure that I never get bacne!
What beauty product or treatment instantly makes you feel good? Facials—I love everything about them! I have done at-home versions before, but I still prefer a pro facial. I truly believe in monthly facials, if your budget permits. Facials quickly resolve most skin concerns and you leaving feeling so refreshed!
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received (or thought of yourself)? Know the difference between day and night makeup. I believe in light eye makeup during the day then going dramatic at night to really look alluring.
