Bathing Beauty: Brittny Gastineau

Model, reality star (The Gastineau Girls and Cattle Drive), jewelry designer (tres glam): Brittny Gastineau has lived many lives in her young 21 years (that's the age she's giving me, so I'm sticking to it).

I've known Britt Britt, as I like to call Miss. Brittny, for ten years - since she was a shy 15 year-old (you do the math) taking weekend club visits to NYC. The one thing that has remained a constant is that stunning, natural, raven mane (that's right - no extensions!). Besides being blessed with faboosh hair, Britney is also bestowed with a flawless complexion and envy-inducing crystal blue eyes. The coolest thing about my fellow Scorpio is that she's just as comfortable flaunting her couture on the red carpet as she is sipping a Coffee Bean Iced Blended in sweats and a bare face. She's pretty low maintenence - shocking, I know. Smile. But that's why I heart her so!

Brittny was kind enough to take time out of her day to answer the same 7 questions I ask all of my favorite beauties:

What are your top 5, can't-live-without products?
Rose Witch Hazel - It's the best astringent. Deep cleans and removes all the makeup without drying my skin.
Lancome Poudre Soleil Sun-Kissed Bronzing Powder- Gives a light shimmer, doesn't leave streaks and looks super natural.
Kerastase By Kerastase Nutritive Masque Oleo-Relax - Very thick. Best deep conditioner. Especially since summer is coming. The sun dries out your hair, ladies.
MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner with SPF - It's better than Rosebud Salve, has a yummy vanilla scent, moisturizes and leaves lips kissable. It also has SPF which is very important.
Tweezerman tweezers - the best tweezers to get the perfect shaped brow.

What is your all-time favorite product?
Creme de la Mer Face Cream

What product do you buy in bulk?
Suave Tropical Coconut Body Wash. Smells delish.

You moisturize your face with...
Creme de la Mer

Favorite body product?
The Body Shop Olive Body Butter

Favorite beauty secret you've picked up along the way?
Preparation H is fab for undereye puffiness. Just make sure not to get it in your eyes! Also, Visine is great to dab on pimples. Gets the red out in an instant.

Beauty icon you admire?
Lisa Gastineau - she knows more about products then anyone!!

Yes, we agree. And that's why Lisa Gastineau will be one of our future bathing beauties! YAY.

Oh I remember seeing her show with her mom - they are both so stunning! I always loved Brittny's green eyes/dark hair combo, i remember she used to use a lot of purple eyeshadows that I loved!

I'll have to try out that mac lip balm though, because I've recently tried Rosebud and I'm convinced it's the best lip balm ever. :-P

Thanks for this exclusive!
