So what has she learned? She is an active girl and a spa junkie and luckily offered us some backstage beauty tips that can help your skin keep up with an active lifestyle.
Elle Young: A good setting powder lessens or eliminates the need for constant touchups. Blotting papers are the best because they're small, barely remove your makeup and get rid of sweat/shine with a quick dab. A creamy red or pink lipstick can make an awesome blush substitute. Baby oil is an awesome makeup remover. I also keep extra makeup sponges for touchups so that I'm not getting a lot of oil and sweat buildup on my regular brushes. That way I increase the lifespan of my expensive brushes by not having to clean them so much.
Young: I love, love, love the '60s look. So, double eyelashes, heavy dark eyeshadow with white eyeliner, mascara on the lower lashes and a nude lip. I love to use black and royal navy for my smoky eye look and a good blender brush is the key to getting the colors to mix so seamlessly. I use Q-Tips to create clean edges and remove excess shadow. Then I use concealer under the eye for contouring.
Young: Cleansing! Almost as soon as I'm offstage, I'm grabbing a baby wipe or makeup remover cloth to get everything off my face. On tour I always carry a travel size Clean & Clear Morning Burst in my bag to wash my face at the venue. Also, when there's time, I try to make sure to get a facial every six weeks. Most importantly, I drink a lot of water and use moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated.
Young: If I had to choose, it would be a complete body scrub followed by a Vichy shower. I enjoy going to Glen Ivy in Corona or Two Bunch Palms in Hot Springs since they have outdoor mud treatments and great products.
The most useful tip that I've gotten from my esthetician is to sleep face up whenever possible to decrease puffiness around the eyes and breakouts. Exfoliate two to three times per week and find a good nighttime serum to replenish lost nutrients while sleeping.
Young: Foaming cleanser, toner, eye cream, vitamin C serum and moisturizer with UV protection.
Young: Lip balm, a travel size hand/body lotion and sun block.
