BEAUTY AND FASHION TALK WITH ALEXIS

Monday, November 25, 2013
Meet Lex ... she's always changing up her look, constantly hitting the gym, and a huge fan of the Karashian's.





What is your typical weekday morning beauty routine? St Ives liquid face soap or face scrub, Rose floral toner by Fresh. Mix of 1 drop of Trader Joes vitamin e oil and a pump of Cetaphil face moisturizer. Oil of Olay body wash with Shea butter. Love it. Baby oil gel before towel dry.

What is your favorite beauty product right now and why?
 
What product have you used for years and continue to use?
I've never stopped using Johnson and Johnson's baby oil gel. It keeps my skin so soft.

Tell me a beauty secret: I use coconut oil for everything. Overnight face moisturizer. Heals burns from the curling iron. Hair mask, acne scars, it's so cheap!

What is your favorite nail brand and why?
I can't paint my own nails. I wish I could.  Essie & OPI are my favorite polishes but I haven't noticed a difference between the two.

What is your favorite shampoo and conditioner?
I have never consistently used a shampoo and conditioner. I've just never fallen in love with anything. I do prefer the L'Oreal sulfate free line. I did the co-wash method all summer. I used the deep conditioner from the L'Oreal curl line.

Have you tried a recent hair product you think is great? Why do you love it? 
My favorite hair product is Carols Daughter hair milk lite. On those natural curly days this product moisturizers and shapes my curls. It has changed my life.

What is your fashion style?
Id like to say my fashion style is most like the Older Kardashian sisters. Khloe Kim and Kourtney are my inspiration as I shop around. They all have different styles and I love how they (or their stylists) take "younger" looks and make them look a little more mature.  I'm too old for forever 21 but I'm more fashionable than the Gap. Don't get me wrong, I buy a lot of basics from the Gap. It's my go to because they have great prices and clothes that last a lifetime. Lol, I digress, my body is curvy. So are the Kardashian's bodies. So its cool to see runway looks on girls that don't have runway bodies. Ive looked at their fashion mistakes and avoided them. I've looked at what works for them and made it work for me. What's also great is that their style is similar but not the same. So I take what I like from each one. Khloe's playful, urban, girly, chic. Kim's feminine and high fashion. She wears lots of black which I love. And Kourtney takes risks with her everyday basics. 

Who is your favorite fashion designer? and why?
My favorite designer is Monique Lhuillier.  Her dresses are stunning and wear well on women with curves. I'm always mesmerized by her designs on the red carpet.
