Bethenny spilled her fave drugstore beauty buy to Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY at the Dress For Success VIP party on November 9 in NYC! We bet you’ll be just as shocked as we were! See what it is below!
Bethenny Frankel, 43, may be a successful entrepreneur but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t shop at the drugstore! Plus, see what beauty product she would NEVER buy in our EXCLUSIVE interview below!
Bethenny Frankel’s Beauty Secrets — Her Fave Drugstore Beauty Buy
You would think that a beautiful, successful woman like Bethenny would put no thought into splurging on higher-end beauty picks — but she surprised us when we asked what her favorite beauty buy was. The thriving entrepreneur told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she chooses drugstore makeup brushes over high-end makeup brushes, any day of the week!
I love makeup brushes at drugstores. They always have good makeup brushes — people spend a lot of money on makeup brushes and I don’t think you need to. You will catch me on Alcatraz in a jail cell before you will catch me spending $80 on a makeup brush!
Bethenny Dishes About Beauty At Dress For Success Event
Dress For Success is an internationally acclaimed, non-profit organization with the sole intention of promoting “the independence of disadvantaged women by providing them with professional attire, a network of support and career development tools.”
On November 9, Dress For Success kicked off its third annual Shop for Success event along with an exclusive VIP Party which was hosted by Bethenny.
At the party, held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City, we chatted with Bethenny and asked what makeup advice she had for women going on job interviews:
I would say keep it simple. Cover up your blemishes and have even skin, conceal and add a little lip gloss, with a little blush and mascara. But not any bright colors, nothing distracting, not too crazy. The same thing with your hair – you don’t want to have streaks, just give keep it clean and simple.
‘Skinnygirl’ Helping Other Girls
We were touched by Bethenny’s genuine desire to help these women in need of guidance and support, so we dug a little bit deeper. When asked what drove her to get involved with the organization, the business savvy entrepreneur replied:
I had pretty much the same mission — helping women to accomplish things they never thought they could. And it’s not just about giving them clothes, it’s about giving them opportunities, and giving them tools — what do they say? If you give a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach him how to fish and he’ll eat forever. So, Dress For Success teaches women how to interview, how to sustain a job and thrive in a career and inspire other women to then do the same. It’s an amazing organization. It gives women the tools to succeed for themselves. I very much believe in the organization. It’s about charity, about sharing the wealth, paying it forward. How amazing if what I created in Skinnygirl can help thousands of women to create their own ideas.
Bethenny has proven to be a selfless, charitable, successful business woman, and we at HollywoodLife.com can appreciate that. We admire her for all her hard work and accomplishments from The Real Housewives to her FOX daytime talk show, Bethenny, which is a hit in the office.
I like talking to controversial people because I like to hear their perspective and the different side and see if they’re misunderstood. I’d love to have Amanda Bynes on; I’d love to have Lindsay Lohan on. Because I want to hear the vulnerability, the other side, the reason.
We just hope if Bethenny gets any of these people on her show that she’ll give us a heads up — we’d love to watch!
‘Skinnygirl’ Cocktails And Shop For Success
This event was packed with every girl’s favorite things: food, shopping, and wine! With music setting the mood, each guest was welcomed to partake in the silent auction on some FABULOUSLY EXCLUSIVE items! Ranging from a necklace from EXTRA host, Maria Menounos, to a dress from one of our favorite child-stars, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, and to top it off with great accessories like a pair of heels and purse from Vivica Fox herself, Shop For Success offered a variety of items that appealed to everyone’s taste! Proceeds raised throughout the night benefited the not-for-profit organization, Dress for Success.
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, the Skinnygirl herself, Bethenny, bartended for attendees at the event! What could’ve been better than tasting her NEWEST wine additions to the Skinnygirl collection than actually getting it from the official Skinny girl herself!? It was great to see Bethenny interact with the crowd — you could really tell she was proud of her brand.
But the fun didn’t end there. A delicious array of cocktails were being offered, featuring the FOUR newest Skinnygirl wines:
Skinnygirl Pinot Grigio
Skinnygirl Cabernet Sauvignon
Be sure to add these four new Skinnygirls to your collection — I promise you, they will become your newest four best friends! If you’re looking for a low-calorie yet heavenly quench, these wines are a MUST HAVE! Plus, they’ll make for the perfect stocking stuffer this holiday season!
