Tuesday Ten: Your Q’s Answered

As promised, I went through all of your comments and questions in response to my Tuesday Ten: Style Q&A post and selected ten questions to answer today!

Below are the most popular questions with my answers. I hope you enjoy reading this!

  1. Sabrinchen“Hey Lauren, What are your favorite perfumes that you use? Hugs from Germany, Sabrina” My favorite perfume is Miss Dior Cherie. I’ve worn it for years.

  2. Chanine H.“What curling iron do you use (barrel size and brand)?” I use different barrel sizes for different style. For everyday curls I use a 1 1/4 inch barrel by Hot Tools.

  3. Coleen“If you were stuck on an island and could only have 3 things with you, what would they be?” 1. Sunscreen- I wear high SPF on my face for protection and I just started using Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Mineral Block Sunblock Stick SPF 50. 2. Lip Moisturizer- I use Dior Creme De Rose Lip Balm in SPF 10. It keeps my lips soft and it has a light rose scent that I love. 3. Powder Compact- Now this is me just taking the question literally… I watch a lot of Discovery Channel (nerd) and I know you can start a fire with a mirror. This would help more in the survival category. Also, if it gets hot on this island I won’t have to worry about being shiny (just kidding).

  4. Jennifer Houlahan“I would love to know what your five minute beauty routine would be for a really low-maintenance ladies/when you’re in a rush :) Thanks!” If I am in a rush I stick to very simple makeup. I also opt for a no fuss hair style like a top knot or a simple pony. An excellent way to minimize your beauty routine is by taking care of your skin and hair. Drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep, eating right and having good skin care regimen all are very important. The better you look without make up, the less you have to apply.

  5. Paige Schaeffer“If there was something you think the fashion industry needs that doesn’t have yet, what would it be?” More smiles. I love this industry, but there are times I think people take it a little too seriously. This is an industry built around creativity, self-expression and passion. Obviously it is a vital business in our economy, but we’re making clothes–not curing cancer. Have some fun with it :-)

  6. Gresly Trejo Valverde“Hi Lauren, here in Peru…my question is what is something that you haaaaaave to do before sleeping?” Brush my teeth, wash my face and moisturize. Not very exciting, it’s what I do every night before bed.

  7. Kayla Robertson“If you could choose one accessory to describe your personality, what would it be?” A black pump with a hidden platform. Timeless, but still youthful.

  8. Laurenda Dosenberry“You have beautiful skin, but you live in California and are often beach bound or pool side. How do you keep your skin looking young with all the sun exposure?” I wear a high SPF and a large hat when I am on vacation or by a pool. Also, I almost always wear a cover up. For more of my personal tips on sun protection, click here.

  9. Melody Plumb“Could you write a post about your favorite hair and makeup tools, such as: favorite makeup brushes, best blow dryer, favorite lipstick for spring/summer, go-to eye shadow… That would be a great post and I think many would enjoy it! Hope to see it soon!” I love this idea and will do an entire blog dedicated to this question! In the meantime, my favorite makeup brush is Sephora Collection Professional Platinum Powder Brush #50. I use an Elchim blowdryer. For spring/summer, I have been wearing Dior Addict Ultra gloss in Luminescent Peach a lot and my go to blush (for day) has been Covergirl and Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Plush Peach. For more on my favorite beauty products, click here.

  10. Kate Harley - “What is your favorite type of nail polish to use? And what are the names and colors?” I don’t have one particular brand that is my favorite. I change my nail polish every couple of days so longevity of a polish isn’t very important to me. Some of the best colors I find are actually from American Apparel. I just bought “Poppy” and “Office” last week.

Thank you to everyone who submitted questions–they were all great, but as you know, I can’t answer them at one time. If your question didn’t get answered–don’t worry. I will do my best to address them in other blogs and maybe even another Tuesday Ten: Style Q&A (if you like these let me know).

In the meantime, post your style and fashion questions below!

XO Lauren

    Hugs From Israel , Alona

  • Ivana Laura Decuzzi

    awesome! i really don’t have a question right now, honestly i enjoy everybody else’s ones and i appreciate that you take your time to read and answer our comments. thankyou a lot lauren, there aren’t many famous people who give feedback to their followers so this makes you an even better role model to all girls.

  • Shelby S

    you are such a great role model. how do you stay so classy when the majority of entertainers in hollywood are not?

  • Annie

    What makeup items do you recommend splurging on? For example, I have heard that you should buy nice foundation and concealer, but that eyeliner and mascara from the drug store are okay. What do you think?

  • Kelly Supple

    Hi Lauren! I was wondering how you would find your correct foundation color. I recently spent 20 minutes in the makeup aisle trying to match my skin color to a liquid foundation with no success. I came away with no new foundation and lots of random color splotches all over my hands. Thank you for all your help! xoxo Kelly from RI

  • Nina Kallas

    Hey Lauren!

  • Jaki

    Hi Lauren! I definitely love these posts, it’s really nice of you to take the time to answer questions. :)

    My question: When I want to do something new with my hair, I dread going to the hairdresser’s because I’m worried that I won’t be able to explain what I want properly. How do you overcome this, what do you tell the hairdresser?

  • Amanda Saavedra

    Hi Lauren! Whit these posts you make me feel if you really loves this blog! You’re amazing!

  • Kya Dawn

    I always have the enviorment on my mind when shopping, trying to avoid synthetic materials and anything with harsh chemicals or extreme dyes. I’ve come to love biodegradable materials like fur and cotton, and natural skin products like mineral make-ups. I was just curious if you purchase “”green”” and if you had any eco-friendly products you love?

  • Michele Savinsky

    Hi Lauren, I love the Tues Ten Style and Q & A, can you please offer this again?

    As for me, you are my most favorite fashion designer. Your book “”Style”” literally serves as my fashion Bible!

    XOXO

What is some advice on learning about fashion and incorporating it into my everyday life. Where should I start? How did you start?

  • C.

    I love hearing your answers to the questions Lauren! I have one: do you use a razor to shave your legs and underarms, or do you wax? Recently, I have been getting really irritated when I shave, so I am wondering if you have any tips on how to stay soft and pretty after shaving?

    Heather Kidd

  • Caitlin Chukyo

    Heather Kidd- tend Skin works wonders!!! I highly recommend this brand, my bf and I both use it. You can purchase it in Sephora, Neiman Marcus or google it. Its worth the $$.

    Lauren- I love how you are so honest with all of us, its really great to have a site such as this to interact and share girly issues (like the one above). I truly admire you for reaching out this way, its very cool. Keep the beauty blogs goin and any new products you love and can recommend would be SUPER!

    This would really help me when shopping and trying to put outfits together :-)

  • karly goins

    Lauren, what is in your beauty arsenal? I’m talking everything from shampoo&conditioner to foundation, to body lotion, to vitamins. What keeps you so glowy and lovely all the time?

    Also, how do you plan outfits so well? I am often in a time crunch (and I’m always tight on money, being that I’m a college freshman) and don’t have time to coordinate polished put together outfits. So I often opt for sweat and uggs and I HATE this frumpy bumpy style rut I’ve been hitting. HELP! :(

    Sincerely,

    Losing My College Cuteness Every Second
