As a huge fan and regular follower of the fabulous blog, Style Me Twice, I was thrilled to interview one of its writers. Style Me Twice focuses on the lives, fashion and beauty interests of two women from different style capitals–Dallas and Los Angeles. One of these fashion mavens happens to be our very own Kaylah from SMU. Her interview reveals her tips for how busy women everywhere can maintain a simple, yet beautiful beauty regimen.
1.) Describe your typical, every-day beauty routine.
“As a full time student, dancer, and blogger, it’s easy to skip out on my beauty routine for the sake of saving time. Because every minute counts, I have to keep my makeup clean, simple, and quick so that I can start seizing the day as soon as it begins. I keep a simple ten minute beauty routine that allows me to maximize my day and amplify my every day look without sacrificing time or beauty!”
2.) What is the one beauty product that you couldn’t live without?
“Bare Minerals Prime Time Primer! This primer is light yet it keeps my makeup in place and feeling fresh through 10 am classes, 1o’clock blog shoots and 10 p.m dance rehearsals.”
3.) What is your favorite brand of makeup? Do you prefer drugstore or high-end?
“I love Bare-Minerals! Because I’m a huge fan of the natural look, I love any kind of make-up that gives me all the coverage I need but doesn’t mask my skin. Because I splurge on Bare minerals foundation, primer, bronzer, and blush, I like to do my wallet a favor and fill my make-up bag with drugstore products like Maybelline’s unstoppable eyeliner and Great Lash mascara.”
4.) Do you have any favorite beauty bloggers or Youtube beauty gurus that you follow regularly?
5.) How important or integral is a beauty routine in your life?
“As cheesy as it may sound, my beauty routine has become a part of daily morning ritual. My life is so busy that taking just 10 minutes at the beginning of my day to slow down and take time for me is so important. Not to mention adding a little bit of glamour and shine makes you feel fabulous and ready to take on the day.”
6.) Is there someone in your life that is a style/beauty inspiration you?
“My mom has impeccable taste. She taught me that less is more which is something that I apply to my style and my makeup.”
