 Have you ever gotten ready next to someone else, and peered inside their makeup bag?  I’m always so curious what perfect products it contains– how DOES she get such flawless skin?  Is the perfect mascara somewhere in that purse of wonders?  Today I’m continuing the BEAUTY BAG series with a gal who encompasses fearlessness in cosmetics– Little Miss Fearless herself, Amanda Sanchez.

Amanda doesn’t shy away from color– check out her signature pink lips.  But she also believes in a simple routine.  She describes her aesthetic as classic and natural.  Here’s a look into Amanda’s regime.

Q) Do you have a set routine, or do you switch it up everyday?
A) Aside from occasionally switching out my face wash, I stick to the same routine. I wash my face in the morning and at night and only use a moisturizer as needed. My life-saving product for blemishes is Clearasil Rapid Action Pads. A-MAZ-ING. And I love Bare Minerals makeup. I will never go back to liquid foundation.

1.  Lipstick/gloss: I love a subtle, light-pink lipgloss or lipstick that”s not too heavy and just makes your face look fresh. My favorites are MAC’s Lipglass in “Underage” and Lipstick in “Angel.”  I also love MAC Pink Nouveau.


The one makeup must have for Amanda?
“I cannot live without mascara!” she said.  “It’s the one item that makes the difference for me if I don’t have anything else. When I’m at the beach or pool, waterproof mascara is my best friend. I’d love to meet the person who invented it. They must have known I was coming.”
 And here’s a trick I had never thought of… Amanda uses her curling iron or straightener to heat her eyelash curler before using it on her lashes.  She says to just be sure it’s not too hot before you touch it to your eyelids.
“The curl will last all day and works best if you have a little bit of mascara on your eyelashes already. I am too afraid to jump on the eyelash-extensions bandwagon, so this is the perfect solution to give my lashes more volume and length.”
Brillant.  It makes sense, doesn’t it?
Thanks for sharing, Amanda!  You can read more from her on her blog, Little Miss Fearless.
Stay tuned for another BEAUTY BAG installment next week!
