I have something exciting today, an interview to share with you AND a giveaway for you guys!!
First things first, I got to interview Ali Fedotowsky who was the former Bachelorette and new host of the Emmy winning show 1st Look on NBC! I was thrilled to get the opportunity to ask her questions about her makeup routine! Here is the interview I did with her and read to the end to find out how you can enter to win $35 from Opensky.com.
If I looked in your makeup bag right now, what kinds of things would I find?
o Highlighter pen. I use certain products to highlight parts of my face in order to contour my face. It something I didn’t even know existed before getting into the entertainment industry. Now I’m obsessed with learning new contouring techniques.
o Vassuer skin lotion - I cannot stress how much I like to be tan and I cannot stress EVEN MORE how I never go in the sun without SPF lotion on. I really love this particular lotion because it doesn’t dry sticky and it smells so good! I put it on every morning before I put on my makeup.
o Great mascara - I’m all about the lashes. I couldn’t live without great mascara.
If you only had 5 minutes to do your makeup, what products would you use?
I always have my Essential makeup bag by Rain Cosmetics - it has a mini lip gloss, bronzer, mascara, an eye pencil, and makeup wipes. Almost everything I need I can carry on board my plane in case my luggage gets lost! Hasn’t happened yet!
What is your go-to date night makeup look?
I rarely use eyeshadow and don’t use dark eyeshadow at all! I just don’t know how to use it. I try to learn, but every time I try to do my eyeshadow I end up looking like I’ve gotten punched in the eye. Ha! So I try to stick to a light shimmer or nothing at all.
What makeup items do you like to splurge on?
Indie Lee Blemish stick - If you don’t have clear skin then no matter what makeup you put on your face it won’t look the way you want it to. Having a blemish stick to carry with me on the go is so essential especially with all the traveling I do.
How did your makeup differ when you were on the Bachelorette (for tv) than it does day to day? Does it differ at all?
I barely wore any makeup before I did the Bachelorette. I didn’t even wear any foundation. Since the show, I have learned almost everything I know about makeup from the professional makeup artists I am so blessed to work with for photo shoots. When they are doing my makeup I ask 500 questions. “why are you highlighting there” “why put bronzer on my neck but not under my eyes” I’ve learned a lot.
Have you picked up any makeup tips or tricks over the years that you’d like to share with us?
I try not to wash my hair everyday and have started using dry shampoo lately. Ever since I started doing this my hair is so much healthier.
