BuzzSugar's Beauty Secrets Are Entertaining

BuzzSugar's Beauty Secrets Are Entertaining

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!

Having a Dr. Pepper lip smacker in my bag is as important to me as having my wallet or cell phone.

Oh, I'm a bit late to the party to answer the mineral question, but yeah — I once used some of my Bare Escentuals mineral powder to "cover up" a small pimple. Someone took a casual picture of me with my digital camera, and I was shocked to see that in the picture, the spot was bright white and looked about three times its actual size! Yikes.

Hah I can so relate to the ivory to scarlet thing in 5 mins! And I also agree with the out-of-the-shower feeling good thing, I loved my pink cheeks and crazy curly hair from the steam! :)

Very good tips!!! Here's something I learned recently... I had been breaking out from using TOO MUCH products! I even tried using Proactiv and still broke out. Now all I use is a hot wash cloth and St. Ives cocoa and shea butter moisturizer (which is non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic) My skin has never looked better!

I'm with you on the shower thing, Buzz! I love how I look when I'm super clean and well moisturized.

Yowza. Is that why my skin has looked so pale in photos lately?

Yeah I learned the hard way about mineral makeup and photos. Just does not photograph well at all.

I agree 100% with the "ivory to scarlet in 15 minutes" - that's the most concise description of my skin's tanning abilities that I've ever heard! And the advice about not torturing your hair with hot styling implements on a regular basis - so true!

I agree with the Dove products, they are the best I've found. Their shampoos are amazing!

I was interested to read about Buzz and the mineral makeup issue. It was not my experience at all! I went to a wedding and I used Bare Essentuals Mineral makeup and I received lots of compliments. When the pictures came out, my female relatives all commented on how flawless my makeup looked! And yes I love CO Bigelow lip products especially the mentha lip glosses!

Really well said, haze. And yay for the C.O. Bigelow shoutout. I can't use Dr. Pepper Lipsmackers (or any other flavor for that matter), but they used to make a peppermint flavor that worked better than any other chap stick. I think that's what started my obsession with mint beauty products.

What Haze said. Mineral makeup doesn't look good in photographs because it bounces the light off. Same thing with some foundations that have titanium dioxide sunblock.

Curious about that as well. But I'm a lot like Buzz - white to scarlet in 15 minutes. And I love the advice and the wash-n-go attitude!

I'm curious about the mineral products too. Hmmm.... I love Dr. Pepper lip smackers! :) Just bought some for me and got some for my girlfriends, too. So yummy :)

I love C.O. Bigelow Lip Care products and gel blush too. It looks more natural, in my opinion.

Why should you avoid mineral products if there's going to be camereas? I've never heard that before and I'm very curious.
