Beauty Behind The Blog: Who Else But Kels

Today I'm back with my another installment of Beauty Behind the Blog with an interview of Kelsie from Who Else But Kels!
Name: Kelsie
Age: 22

THE BASICS
Who taught you about beauty?
As a very young child I would say my mom. However, as I got into high school and started experimenting with makeup I turned to YouTube gurus like Elle and Blair Fowler!

What is your favorite thing about beauty?
That you can express yourself and enhance your natural beauty in any way you choose! I also find my skincare routine to be such a ritual. My day doesn’t begin until I’ve washed my face and done my makeup and I cannot think about getting into bed without washing it off at night.

Do you have a favorite beauty blogger or vlogger?
My favorite vloggers are Amelia Liana and Lydia Millen. Neither of them are true beauty vloggers, but they do talk about makeup often so I guess I would say them!

Do you have a best kept beauty secret?
Hmmmm I’m not sure if I have any…I guess the fact that I have veneers and wear hair extensions often are two secrets!

Do you create any DIY beauty products?
Nope!

What is your favorite natural beauty product?
My charcoal soap! I also try to buy from brands that don’t test on animals like IT COSMETICS.

SKIN
What is your skin type?
Normal to oily.

What is your basic skincare routine?
In the morning, I wash my face with Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Wash and finish with Elemis Balancing Lavender Toner and a day cream.  At night, I wash my face twice using charcoal bar soap (like this). Then I use Elemis Balancing Lavender Toner, DifferinElemis Resurfacing Night Cream, and It Cosmetics Confidence In An Eye Cream.

What is your biggest skin issue?
Recently, acne has been an issue. However, usually it’s uneven skin pigmentation and oil.

What are your must have skincare product?
All of the ones listed I in my routine!

What is your favorite skincare splurge?
A good toner and a moisturizer.

What is the first thing you do when you get a breakout?
I’ll wash my face like normal and then use GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment as a spot treatment overnight.

MAKEUP
What is your everyday makeup look?
In my opinion, my look is pretty natural. I use a peachy blush, and lightly contour my cheekbones. Usually I won’t wear eyeshadow for the day and sometimes leave eyeliner off too.

What is your go to makeup look when you go out?
For going out, I keep the same face makeup, but add eyeshadow and eyeliner if I wasn’t already wearing it. I really don’t play around too much with my makeup. I travel around so much that my collection is limited to my travel bag!


What is your favorite makeup splurge?
YSL lipsticks!

What is your best makeup trick?
I’m not sure if I have any! I mean I can do my makeup well, but I don’t do anything fancy!

HAIR
What is your hair type?
Very thin.

What is your basic hair care routine?
I shower in the morning and then let it start to dry while doing my makeup. I’ll finish drying it with a blow dryer and a brush, which takes all of two minutes. Then, I’ll run a straightener over the ends or if I want it curled I’ll use a curling wand. I also wear a hair piece that clips on top of my natural hair to help with thinness so I pop that on and I’m good to go!

What is your biggest hair issue?
How thin it is!

What are your must have hair products?
My hair piece and my clip in extensions! 

What is your favorite hair care splurge? 
Does my time at the salon count? Getting hair colored is so expensive!

How do you style your hair everyday? 
Usually just down and straight and sometimes loose curls.

How do you style your hair when you're going out?
Same as for the day. Since my hair is thin and I wear the hair piece I’m a bit limited in styles I can do!

What is your best hair trick?
The hair piece for sure! Nobody ever has a clue and it makes me have twice the amount of hair!!

BATH AND BODY
What is your basic body care routine?
I’m sooo bad with this. I try to use a body scrub in the shower twice a week, but I never remember to put lotion on unless my legs are showing! I also think sunscreen is super important in the summer so I always wear that.

What are your must have body products?
I have Elemis Body Oil, which I love, but always forget to put it on. However, I would definitely recommend it! Also Neutrogena Sunscreen!

What is your favorite body product splurge?
Elemis Body Oil

What is your basic approach to nutrition and dieting?
I’ve dealt with disordered eating in the past so, now I try not to diet or restrict myself from any foods. Rather, I eat what sounds good and am mindful to make healthy choices most of the time and not overindulge.

What is your current workout routine?
Since, I’m traveling, I don’t have a routine. However, I used to love lifting five days a week with cardio on three of the days. I try to walk my dog for an hour a day when it’s nice and I love yoga classes. Oh, Zumba is also super fun and I enjoy hiking while I travel! 

A huge thank you to Kelsie for sharing a look into her beauty routine!  Do you use any of the same products?  Let me know below!
