Music director and host of Afternoon Drive on My 103.9 FM, Robin Nash has been rockin’ the radio waves for 17 years and counting since her college days at ASU. She’s rubbed shoulders with tons of hot musicians and even a hot actor or two (ask her about her Jared Leto story!). Robin’s genuinely warm on-air personality is no act and she’s a down-to-earth girl who adores her kitty, Teeks, and has a passion for cooking. When she’s not spinning the hottest LPs or flipping through the latest foodie mags for recipes, this practical beauty is test driving a new lip gloss.
So let’s get down to business, what’s in your beauty bag?
That is a loaded question because I’m addicted to lip gloss. Just in my purse alone, I carry at least eight and switch off throughout the day. From Stila to L’Oreal to MAC to Maybelline … they’re all in there! After filtering through all of the gloss, you’ll find Maybelline Eye Studio, L’Oreal mascara, Estee Lauder blush, five different brands of eye shadow and an absolute must – L’Oreal’s Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream!
How do you define your beauty style?
I’m a beach girl. I grew up in Long Island, NY and spent my summers at the beach. My beauty style is very natural and relaxed.
What three makeup products can you not live without?
I cannot live without lip gloss, eyeliner and blush.
What skincare products do you swear by?
This is easy. I’ve been using the same ones for 10 years now and I feel my skin thanks me for it. Every day I wear Neutrogena Healthy Skin Facial Lotion SPF 15 and every night, I put on RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream.
What is the one haircare product that you buy again and again or do you like to mix it up?
Oooh, THE one? I definitely buy L’Oreal’s Everstrong Reconstructing Shampoo and Conditioner often. But now and again, I’ll switch it up with Aveda products. I’ve gone through many hair spray brands as well and the one I keep going back to is Nexxus.
Do you have any beauty tricks or services you get before public appearances?
Ahhh, beauty tricks. I wish I had the money to afford a personal hair, makeup and fashion consultant! But I don’t and therefore, I’m on my own putting together what I think is a representation of my fun, outgoing, yet down-to-earth personality.
What’s your all-time favorite spa treatment?
I looooove the spa. My all-time favorite is a 90-minute, full-body therapeutic massage. Let me add that I love spa pedicures too!
Do you have any home spa rituals?
The only at-home spa ritual is in the winter time. When it’s cold in the house, instead of turning on the heat, I’ll draw a hot bubble bath and relax in there for at least a half hour. Serenity!
How do you relax?
The bath is my first relaxation method. Next, on the weekends when home during daylight, I’ll lay outside on the lounge chair and just let the sun warm my face as I listen to the birds chirping all around me. Try it sometime. It’s such a charming and calming moment of my day.
