Here's How Bachelor Contestants Get Camera-Ready I asked my favorite Bachelor contestants for their beauty tips.

I came to The Bachelor relatively late—during the finale of Ben Higgins' show. But if you watch my Insta-Stories, you already know I didn't waste a moment diving straight into Jojo Fletcher's season, and every season (and spin-off, Winter Games included...) after that. Aside from it making my Mondays infinitely more enjoyable, I find that some of my favorite beauty tips and inspiration come from watching the girls on the show, whether a particularly good smokey eye or killer beachy waves. In honor of tonight's finale of The Bachelor, I reached out to some of my favorite contestants for their go-to beauty tips:

What are some of your favorite tips and products for making your eye makeup pop?

Let me preface this answer by noting that I have big eyes so they are always popping but I live by two things for eye makeup to enhance my eyes: I love the Kylie Jenner black eyeliner and false eyelashes. My go-to lashes are from Sephora (plush or flare). If you want to go with a less expensive option, I like the Ardell brand from CVS.

Favorite highlighter?

Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in 'Sunrise Glow.'

What's your holy grail high-end makeup ($$$) product & low-end makeup (drugstore) product?

Honestly, I use a lot of drugstore makeup products: I like Revlon eyeliner and coverup. As for higher end, I like Hourglass Seamless Finish Foundation Stick, Makeup Forever Brow Gel, Nars Blush, and Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara.

What’s the one beauty product you couldn’t live without on The Bachelor?

Are you ready for this... Vaseline lol. I literally live by Vaseline. I still use it today—I use it on my lips and as a moisturizer when I am ashy on my knees and hands. During the winter, I use it on my face and feet. 

What are your tips for styling effortless waves and keeping long hair healthy?

For my beachy/effortless waves, I will let my hair air-dry then pop in curls using a 1 1/4" barrel curling iron, curling in different directions in the back and always away from my face in the front. I always finish up with a dry texture spray for some volume and to add that “beachy grit”. I try my best to not apply too much heat to my hair if possible, and allowing my hair to air-dry saves it from that additional heat. I've also learned to not “over wash” my hair (dry shampoo, you are a life saver) and keep up with trims in order to keep my long hair healthy!

Go-to brow products?

Luckily for me, I have been blessed with very full eyebrows! Most of the time, all I do for my brows is use a brow brush, spray it with hairspray, and brush my brows up and into place. For those little areas that need some fill, I will use a small, fine-tip brow pencil. The Maybelline EyeStudio Brow Precise Micro Pencil is one that I have found to work great and is very affordable!

What's your holy grail high-end makeup ($$$) product & low-end makeup (drugstore) product?

I have always been a firm believer that the key to flawless glowing skin begins with your skin preparation. No matter how expensive a beauty product may be, if your skin isn't healthy, it won't apply how you would like. So for me, I invest my money in skin care. Products I swear by are the IS Clinical Active Serum and the Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Daily Peel Pads. They help to keep my skin clear, even and radiant, so when I do wear an expensive foundation (i.e. La Mer Soft Fluid Foundation or Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation), I don't have to pile it on and instead use it for select spot coverage, so a little goes a long way for me. Day to day, I try to skip the foundation all together and instead wear the Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer—it’s one of my all-time favorites! I find that some of my favorite lip pencils and lipsticks come from the drugstore. One of my go-to warm nude lip liners is ‘Coffee’ by NYX cosmetics & for a fun summer pop, L'Oreal also has a lipstick shade called ‘Magnetic Coral’ that I absolutely love!

What’s the one beauty product you couldn’t live without on The Bachelor?

Concealer! Given the environment you are thrown into—lack of sleep, drinking, stress, 25+ women with their emotions running wild—your body and skin take a beating and you can definitely expect darker under-eye circles and an occasional stress breakout to occur. Gotta be prepared to camouflage those puppies up.
