PartySugar Dishes Out Beauty Tips

Frequent readers of YumSugar are no doubt familiar with PartySugar. She really is the hostess with the mostest, and not only does she throw the best bashes, she always looks enviably polished while doing so. Read on to find out what's in her makeup bag.

Which beauty products are your must-haves?
Spanish Dove spray can deodorant. Yes, I purchase my deodorant in bulk while traveling in Spain. It never leaves any white residue and is simply my fave. St. Ives Oatmeal scented body wash, Dove tanning lotion, MAC and Nars eye shadows, Dior mascara, Lancome lip glosses. The Venus Vibrance razor in pink; I use two to make my shaving super fast.

What’s your favorite beauty ritual?
Painting my nails. I paint them once a week, almost always on Wednesday nights. I have been doing this for the past 10 years. Painting my nails is like therapy. The color I choose affects the outlook on the upcoming week.

To see what product PartySugar calls a "huge waste of money,"

What’s your go-to lip product?
Gloss, always lip gloss. I have 4 in my purse right now and about 10 colors that are in my current rotation. I like Lancome Juicy Tubes, MAC lipglass, and Dior lip gloss. I once won a contest at a party for being the girl with the most lip gloss in her purse. It was very exciting.

What is your morning beauty routine?
For being a beauty lover and a super girlie girl, I consider myself pretty low key. I always put on face cream with SPF, a neutral-colored shadow, and mascara. I sit in front of a computer all day so an overly glam look is a waste of makeup. My hair depends on if its curly, wavy, straight, or just washed.

What’s your signature fragrance?
Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb. Love it.

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
A cold rinse. To make your hair shiny, wash out conditioner with cold water.

And the worst advice?
I bought one of those expensive treatments to help get rid of bikini waxing breakouts. Huge waste of money. Tried it once and wasn’t convinced.

Any tips or tricks you want to share with readers?
If you see a look you like in a picture or magazine, rip it out, take it home, and try to recreate it. Also, apparently for every six used eye shadows you bring into MAC, they’ll give you a free lip gloss. I’m not sure if they really do it, though, I have one more shadow to go until I have six. [Bella's note: It's true! Take six empty MAC containers to the store and you get a free lip gloss or lipstick.]

Your favorite drugstore beauty product?
Revlon nail polish and Lip Smackers Dr. Pepper lip gloss.

When do you feel the most beautiful?
After a day at the beach, when I’m sitting watching the sunset with fabulous company and a refreshing cocktail. Oh and when I leave the hair salon, of course — but who doesn’t feel gorgeous after Champagne and a great, styled haircut?

brandi797: Yes, I use two razors. One in each hand, in PartySugarLand it makes for a quicker, smoother shave.

It will take me well into my next lifetime to save up six MAC containers! My favorite perfume is Flowerbomb. Second fav: Agent Provacateur (and lotion).

I adore your nail routine and the fact that you honestly do it every week, partysugar! A MAC girl told me about about the free lip gloss last time I bought eyeshadow but it's going to take me forever to store up six!

You use two razors? At once? Like, one in each hand, or the two stacked so there's one behind the other?

I'm a fan of the Bonne Bell Dr. Pepper lip smacker too! I've been using that since the 80s when I was in elementary school. It smells so yummy!

Party sounds like a girl after my own heart. ;) I do the cold water spurt on the hair before I get out of the shower too, brings shine shine shine. :) And I can attest to the MAC 6 empties, this is why I love them so!!

PartySugar sounds like my kind of girl! I probably have ... let me count... 4 lipglosses, 1 lip balm, and 1 tinted lip conditioner in my pencil case at the moment. And that's just for lectures & library time. I'm spending a year in Seville, starting in September, so I'll definitely look up that Dove spray deodorant - and I might have to create my own stockpile if it's as miraculous as you say!

MartiniLush: while I'm no expert, I find that my manicures last the best when I: 1. use all the same brand of nail product (ex. Revlon base coat, color, and top coat) 2. touch up 2 days later with a thin layer of polish and another coat of top
