Each week our FACES of Atlanta series showcases some of the most accomplished women around town. We love getting to know more about them, learning about their success and vision, and being inspired. One common thread — we’re all still girls that enjoy a little personal indulgence and a hot beauty tip. We’ve put together some favorites that keep our FACES as lovely on the outside as they are on the inside.
A Little Product, No Big Production
Local stage actress, Kylie Brown, choses products with the fewest additives possible. Removing theatrical makeup could really irritate her delicate skin, but Cetaphil cold cream gently does the trick!
Elizabeth Feichter, a cofounder of Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, confesses that she really keeps her routine simple, focusing on moisturizing. She likes Kiehls products for her face and eyes, and Nivea hand cream for its creamy feel and a scent that reminds her of her grandmother.
Local media personality, Mara Davis, loves shopping at Woo for just about anything. She confesses that she’s “obsessed with beauty products” but has a couple that top her list. Mara declares Caudalie Divine Oil a miracle product for face, body or hair. She also heralds the Smashbox Full Exposure eyeshadow palette as a true bargain giving every color you could possibly need in one kit for just under $50.
As writer of blog Witty + Pretty, the hilarious Ashley Hesseltine spends quite a bit of time researching beauty products, so she was eager to offer up some of her faves. Gleam is the bronzing product Ashley deems a game-changer and it’s available at Raw Bronzing Studio in a variety of sizes. Ashley also applauds CosMedix Serum 16 for living up to its hype and actually working. Pick it up at White Salon and Spa and enjoy the results.
Though she admits having drawers of creams and potions, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles publisher Gina Christman swears by sipping hot water with lemon each morning and placing icy washcloth on her eyes for a few minutes. She also never refuses a champagne toast and believes in celebrating life with the bubbly.
Maria Goldsholl enjoys indulging in regular facials, yet relies on coconut oil right out of the jar as the best hair conditioner.
The glowing countenance of chef Asha Gomez comes from her homemade scrub of rice flour and yogurt, adding the natural antiseptic of fresh turmeric whenever she has it available. Redefining timeless beauty …
Whether a simple trick or a luxury indulgence, beauty tips are meant to be shared. A big thank you to our FACES of Atlanta for letting us in on their secrets.
