Friday Fives: A Fitness and Style Guru’s Beauty Staples
Meet Amanda Matluck, also known by her friends as Fashion Fitness, is a Union College rising senior and recent Florentine. Amanda decided to combine her passion for fashion and health through her Instagram page and blog, @fashion_fitness315, which features her workouts and healthy meals.
But she isn’t all health all the time. (Who could resist the temptation of Italy’s renowned pizza and pasta?) A true believer in moderation, Amanda’s goal is to provide her followers with healthy-eating options, effective workout routines, and the occasional styling tips. So how does this world-traveling fitness guru manage to stay picture perfect? We tapped Amanda for some of her best on-the-go products and tips!
1. It's a 10 Miracle leave-in Keratin
Every girl needs a good frizz-taming product for the summertime humidity, and Amanda agrees. “[This is] my favorite hair product," she says, "And the best part about it is that you can get it at any drugstore for a very reasonable price. I used to use very expensive hair products but have found this one works the best, keeping my hair shiny and frizz-free all day.”
2. Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation
Who doesn’t love a good Benefit product? Amanda is a big fan of the brand. “This is my absolute favorite face makeup product," she said. "It provides amazing coverage while still being lightweight.”
3. Makeup For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara
"This is the best thing to ever be invented; with simply one application your lashes are transformed," she said. "Before this, I had never discovered mascara that I could solely use on its own and not a million coats of it."
4. Neutrogena Hydrating Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
On-the-go makeup remover is a lifesaver, and Amanda couldn’t agree more. “These are amazing for after the gym, for taking off your sweaty ruined makeup. Most towelettes I have found make me breakout or dry my face out, especially after working out, but this one also hydrates your face leaving you feeling refreshed.”
5. Benefit High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter
“Lastly, I swear by Benefit’s High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter," she says. "It completely transforms your face, giving you a dewy glow to finish off your makeup.” Highlighter is must. We’re with you, Amanda!
