- Ask Amanda
Hey everyone! I added this to my blog to answer questions I’m commonly asked. In the “Contact” section below, feel free to send me any questions or comments you have and I will update this “Ask Amanda” section regularly to answer them! Xox
Q: What is the nude/pink lipstick that I wear basically everyday?
A: It’s Naked by Urban Decay or Kinda Sexy by MAC. I wear this YSL Tint in Oil in “Love me Nude” on top of it. If I want a slightly darker look for night i use Minimalism by NYX (less than $5!) with the same YSL Tint in Oil on top for shine!
Q: Where do I shop for my kids?
A: I love to shop for Kins and Char more than I do for myself! Haha! We love JoyFolie, Crew and Lu and Moderne Child. I try my best to always tag their outfits on instagram so it’s easy to shop their looks.
Q: What’s my favorite place to shop for myself?
A: I do most of my shopping online. My favorite/go to is Revolve because they carry all the brands I love and they ship insanely quick!
Q: What’s my skincare routine?
A: In the morning, I just use a light wash called Purity by Philosophy. It’s simple, gentle and smells amazing. Then at night, I have a longer routine. I start with Dermalogica’s Precleanse to remove all my makeup, including my eye makeup. Then i use Dermalogica’s Special Cleansing Gel. My favorite product i use nightly are these Daily Peel Pads by Dr Dennis Gross. They exfoliate your skin and help prevent aging and breakouts. They’re gentle enough to use everyday even with sensitive skin. I also use this Oil Free Moisturizer by Dr Dennis Gross And lastly, i do a mask 2-3 times a week I use a mask. If I’m experiencing breakouts, this Origin’s Charcoal Mask is a lifesaver! Otherwise, I’ll sleep in the Origins Overnight Intensive Mask and wash it off in the morning.
Q: What is my diet/exercise routine?
A: I have such a crazy schedule with the kids (okay, maybe that’s just my excuse haha) that I don’t exercise as much as I would like to. I try to get 30-45 minutes of cardio in 4 times a week and have a few easy circuit training exercises that I got from the Kayla Itsines BBG (that guide is amazing!) As far as my diet goes, I try to avoid gluten and as much sugar as possible. I LOVE wine but notice a huge difference when i cut alcohol out, as well.
Q: What kind of extensions do you get/where do you get your hair done?
A: I have individual bonded extensions. I get them done, as well as my color, at Tease Salon in Costa Mesa (@teasesalonOC) Ashley for color. Kristin for extensions. They’re the BEST
Q: Who takes all my professional photos?
A: @koliniphotography. If you’re local and looking for a photographer for any occasion, she is amazing and so sweet! (and no, she doesn’t follow us around everywhere we go lol we shoot with her once a week.)
