She’s a true girl’s girl and she is not afraid of sharing healthy skincare tips that her fans can really use. Here is the beauty Q & A session:
Taylor, like you, I have naturally curly hair. What technique do you use to curl your hair into perfect ringlets? What are your favorite products and tools?—Amy Felts
“My hair is naturally curly, so some days I just let it be. But when I wake up and my hair looks like a mess, I curl my hair by wrapping the hair around the curling iron to create a spiral look. I don’t use any hair products because I have this fear of putting too much mousse in it or something and my hair ending up feeling crunchy.”
How do you get your red lipstick to stay on all day?—Olga Navarro Davis
“There are tricks I’ve learned from makeup artists on shoots. They put on the red lipstick, then blot it with a tissue, then they put powder over the tissue and sort of press it onto your lips. Then re-apply. It turns it into a stain that lasts much longer.”
What kind of skin products do you use? Your skin always looks so healthy.—Steffany Mae-Rose Hutchings
“Thank you! I use whatever is around, really. I’ll go to the drugstore and just get makeup removal pads, facial scrubs (that I always forget to use).The one thing I do daily is a put on night cream every morning before I put on my make up, and at night before I go to bed.”
How do you keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful without resorting to tanning beds?—Mandy Viar
“I don’t mind being pale. In high school, it seemed like everybody cared about being tan all year round, but I haven’t really thought about it since then. I don’t go to a tanning bed, and I get bored when I lay out. I put sunscreen on when I’m in the sun and sometimes I get tan, but I don’t really think about it very much.”
What is your nighttime beauty routine?—Sammi Jo
“I take my contacts out, wash my face, put on night cream, and put on my glasses so I can watch Friends. Sometimes I forget to wash off my makeup. Okay—almost all the time.”
