Ever wondered what those in the know are using in their regular beauty and wellness routines—from the beach to the red carpet? I certainly have, so asked my very talented friend – Hollywood host, red carpet insider and blogger extraordinaire, Stuart Brazell, to share some of her tried and true secrets.
Find out what Stuart’s must haves are, below!
A Day at the Beach
When I’m at the beach my main concern is protecting myself against the sun. I have pretty fair skin and as we all know fun in the sun speeds up the aging process. My new favorite product is called Nutrient Day Cream SPF 30 by Josh Rosebrook Skin and Hair Care. I’m all about products that can do more than one thing, hey we are all multi-tasking right? I use this as my makeup primer, moisturizer and facial sunscreen. And it doesn’t make me look greasy — hey we got be ready for those snaps right?
The one thing I always bring with me to yoga (besides my mat) is Harmless Harvest coconut water. It is seriously the closest thing you can get to a fresh coconut! I’m a big fan of hot yoga classes, so it is important to stay super hydrated. This water is SO delicious because it is made from Nam Hom coconuts, which are considered the tastiest the world. Plus I really appreciate how this company works fairly with the Thai farmers.
On the Red Carpet
When I’m working the red carpet it is fun! However, red carpets can actually be an extremely unglamorous place. Most of the time I find myself standing long periods of time in heels, tight dresses, crammed into a small area with a lot of other people. Recently in Maine I discovered Clear Mind Tension Remedy by H. Gillerman Organics. This essential oil helps me fight mental fatigue and stayed focused and relaxed in an exciting yet stressful situation. Plus I love the smell of peppermint!
A Night Out
A night out for me is all about the eyes! So many times for work I have to do my makeup a certain way, so it if fun to get ready for a night on the town on my time! A red lip always works for a Saturday and I’m a big fan of Gabriel Gluten-Free and Organic Cosmetics. I throw on a nude eye and their Passion Flower lipstick and I’m ready for wherever the night takes me!
In front of the camera
When I’m in front of the camera, I smile a lot! Hey, it’s part of the job! I’m always very aware of my teeth, so I have a ritual where I brush my teeth right before I start filming for that extra added confidence! I use Hello supermint toothpaste and I’m ready to shoot!
Long Haul Flight
Long haul flights make my skin SO dehydrated!!! I love Frownies Rose Water Hydrator to keep my skin fresh and toned. I spray it on whenever I’m feeling parched to plump and soothe the skin. It also keeps my wrinkles in check, which have a tendency to come out full force mid air! And I love the smell – sometimes I feel like I’m having my own private aromatherapy party at 36,000 feet!
