Beautycon Babes Take Us Back to School With Their Fave Products
Beautycon NYC is tomorrow, and while it is a place for celebrating the things that we love, it’s also about badass girls who are redefining beauty.
Although it is basically all about makeup and the trendiest beauty products right now, the people that go to Beautycon are what makes it so special. We picked three of our fave beauty babes and talked to them about their fave tricks and what items they couldn’t live without.

How do you feel without any makeup?
Honestly, I feel fine. Makeup is an accessory that I choose to wear, not something that defines me.
How do you feel with makeup?
When I do make the choice to wear makeup, I feel artistic and empowered.
Do you spend more money on makeup or skincare?
Skincare. Your makeup will never look good if you don’t take care of your skin.
If you could only use one mascara for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Too Faced Better Than Sex. Anyone surprised?

What’s your opinion on blush?
I love blush, gives you cheeks extra dimension and can really complete your look.
Your biggest tip for embracing your flaws?
The answer is in the question — embrace your flaws. Everyone has flaws and no one is perfect, the faster you realize that, the happier you’ll be.
What product do you never leave home without?
Lip balm. Having moisturized lips is important, whether you plan on wearing lipstick or not.
The best highlighter that gives you a natural-looking glow?
For a natural glow, I always choose something that is either liquid or cream. Much easier to blend out than something that is powder.
When do you feel the most beautiful?
When I’m hanging out with friends laughing and enjoying myself.
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
I like to kind of think about what I am grateful for; I live such a blessed life and I never want to feel like I take it for granted in any way.
If you could only use one lipstick for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Stark Naked. You can never go wrong with a matte nude lipstick.
Fav thing about yourself physically? What about on the inside?
Physically it’s my hair, I can easily change it. When it comes to what’s on the inside, I would have to say how understanding I am — I let people be themselves, whatever that entails.
What product do you never fly without?
Moisturizer! Plane air is so bad for your skin and can really dry it out.
The best foundation for back-to-school?
You definitely want something that is natural looking but stays on all day; something like the Urban Decay All-Nighter Foundation.
