Continuing on with the Sugar girls' beauty routines — check out Giggle's fave products and Fab's favorite tips if you missed them — I've checked in with Buzz. She always looks fresh and healthy with her minimal-makeup look, but when she gets dressed up for a special occasion, she's a classic beauty. Read on to see how she primps in between the movie premieres and CD release parties.
Which beauty products are your must-haves?
H2O+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment, gel blush, foundation primer, and Clean & Clear facial wipes — they're excellent for traveling, especially with the liquids ban on airlines.
What’s your favorite beauty ritual?
Getting a haircut. It’s so refreshing and there’s usually a neck massage involved. It’s such a great way to feel beautiful and make a brand new start.
For the rest of Buzz's answers,
What’s your go-to lip product?
Dr. Pepper LipSmackers! Also, C.O. Bigelow Lip Care products (specifically the Mentha Lip Shine).
What is your morning beauty routine like?
SUPER low-key! Basically wash-n-go.
What’s your signature fragrance?
Hmm... I’m kind of all over the place with fragrances. I used to use Clinique’s Happy, though not so much anymore. Probably my go-to fragrance is the eau de toilette from Banana Republic called Classic.
What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
Well, my mom always refused to let me get my hair permed when I begged her to let me do that, and I’m eternally grateful to her for never relenting! Also, BellaSugar’s advice about putting on moisturizer with SPF is some of the most important beauty advice I think I’ve ever gotten.
And the worst advice?
I used to hear that tanning beds were “better for you” than the actual sun, which now seems slightly preposterous. Tanning advice in general often seems just wrong to me, like the advice that people should get “a base tan.” Hey, for some of us, there IS no base tan! It’s just ivory to scarlet in 15 minutes.
Any tips or tricks you want to share with readers?
Save the blow-drying, hair irons, curling irons, what-have-you for special occasions or else your hair will live to regret it. There’s really no need to use those things if you’re just going to be sitting in your cubicle all day! Also: Avoid using mineral products when you know there’ll be photo opportunities in the near future.
Your favorite drugstore beauty product?
I really like most Dove products (deodorant, moisturizer, etc.). It’s just a reliable brand.
When do you feel the most beautiful?
I feel the most beautiful in those first few minutes right when I get out of the shower. It’s just such a wonderful feeling of refreshment and rejuvenation, and my face is often a little flushed from the steam. My skin looks great, and I feel clean and lovely!
