Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino is sharing some sage words about how to look and feel your best.
"Beauty, to me, is more abut being healthy and happy and just confident and taking care of yourself," she tells The Beauty Bean. "It’s [also] more about who you are on the inside and then that goes to the outside. If you’re eating well and doing things that take care of yourself, you’re then feeling confident and good about yourself and that presents a better you to everyone else."
Which beauty products does she carry with her at all times? I have a little bit of everything. "My everyday go-tos" are "Chanel bronzer, Dior highlighter, MAC mascara that makes your lashes super full, and I use a powder," she reveals, adding that she puts on "makeup on fast, slam-bam."
Alexis feels we all need to embrace our individual body types. "There are so many different types of beautiful bodies," she says. "You can’t look at a magazine and say I want to be that stick thin model who eats celery and fruit all day. You have to go by what your body type is, and just own it and work it and be healthy."
"[Beauty's] not about having 10% body fat or 18% body fat," she adds. "[It's all] just coming full circle... it’s about really starting to love yourself and being happy with who you are now." Good advice!
She also says that her workout routine varies day-to-day. "It depends on my mood because there are days I really feel like working out with my trainer or a hardcore bootcamp where I don’t want to be able to walk the next day!" Alexis explains. "And some days I crave the tranquil serenity of yoga. I feel just as good after both those workouts, and they’re completely different. I have to change it up daily."
We love her tips!
