Describe your beauty style in three words or less: Ummm…lazy!
What are the three beauty products you can’t live without? Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleanser Wipes, Goody Spin Pin and Almay One-Coat Dial-Up Mascara. Ever since I got Lasik earlier this year, I’m more into eye makeup.
What’s your beauty routine in the morning? After applying moisturizer, I slap on the only five products in my makeup bag in this order: concealer, eyeshadow primer, blush, eyeshadow and mascara. The end. My hair is pretty much just dry shampoo and go. If down isn’t happening, a high bun is cute and easy.
At night? Shower + air-dry my hair + brush teeth + floss + hair in a ponytail + zzzzzz!
Post-workout? I always take off my makeup before I work out (which explains my love for those Clean & Clear Wipes). So it’s really just about hopping in the shower. If I work out during lunch, I spray my hair with Charlotte Ronson A Perfect Mess Beach Hair after showering.
What beauty product or treatment instantly makes you feel good? A massage. I don’t get them often, but when I do, I’m in heaven.
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received (or thought of yourself)? My friend Carolina, who has gorgeous skin, has been using spray-on sunscreen since before it was cool. So she got me hooked. It’s especially important before I head out for a run—no more tank top tan lines! My go-to is Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Sunblock Body Mist SPF 45.

Here at FITNESS, we’re always looking for new ways to beautify our workout routine. If the dreaded ponytail crease is preventing you from hitting the gym before a night on the town, try these simple tips to keep your smooth strands intact:
Crease Release Fill an empty spray bottle with water and spritz lightly onto the ponytail crease, moving all the way around the crown. Take a flat brush and place it under the crease. Brush the hair downward and blast the crease with a blow dryer until smooth. Bonus: Using a fabric-covered elastic can reduce indentation.
Clip It Instead of pulling your hair into a ponytail, try clipping it up. Lightly twist locks up and secure with a clip that will stay in place. We like Goody StayPut Slide-Proof Hold Claw Clips, which are specially designed to grip your hair and not slip off.
What are your post-workout beauty tricks?
