Flex's Faves: FlexMami shares all her beauty must-haves
FlexMami is a multihyphenate in it's truest form. The DJ-influencer-presenter-entrepreneur-author-podcaster-chicken salt connoisseur wears a lot of hats, and serves up game-changing looks while she's at it.
An undeniable style icon, her level of confidence and self-assuredness is contageous and leaves you feeling like you can do anything you want, too.
While Flex is truly one of a kind, and therefore entirely inimitable, one thing we can (hopefully) imitate is her incredible beauty looks. Thankfully, she let us in on a few of her secrets and favourite products to help us get the look.
Have you always been interested in beauty?
"Yes, to varying degrees. When I was in high school, I was obsessed with winged liner. It was the easiest way to visually communicate that I was ‘alternative’ and good at makeup."
What's your first beauty memory?
"Ooh, probably around age 8 or 9. I distinctly remember my Mum calling me into the bathroom where the natural light was to check if her foundation matched her skin tone."
With a busy lifestyle, what are your top tips for saving time on beauty?
We for one are always looking for ways to cut time from our beauty routine, and Flex's tip is to "stick to the products that will take the least time and make the most impact. For me, that’s concealer and contour."
What’s a beauty trick you wish you’d known earlier?
"Getting my brows professionally waxed instead of hacking at them at home. It really makes a difference."
Do you tend to stick to the same products or do you like to switch it up?
Instead of switching products willy-nilly, Flex is consistent with what she uses. She says, "same products. I prefer to finish what I start using."
As a frequent traveller, what products do you bring with you on every trip?
People who travel a lot are usually masters of the 'essentials only' beauty edit, and Flex is no exception.
Her favourite travel companions are:
- Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Concealer
- Benefit Hoola Toasted Bronzer
- Benefit 24 Hour Brow Gel
- Rimmel Oh My Gloss!
What is your in-flight beauty routine?
We love this tip, because it won't cost you a cent - "sleep the whole flight and pray I don’t wake up crusty".
What has been your biggest beauty regret?
"Wearing foundation. It just doesn’t do anything great for my skin."
What does a self-care evening look like for you?
"Copious amounts of Youtube, comfort food and a DIY project."
You’re very open about your appreciation of vibrators and sex toys, what is your advice for someone who wants to try one but is nervous?
"The insecurity of not trying something and the shame that develops from not being adventurous is much harder to deal with then just biting the bullet and investing in your own pleasure. You have nothing to lose."
One of your most admired traits is your confidence in all that you do, what would be some of your advice for women who want to be more sure of themselves but aren’t sure where to start?
Flex's tip strays away from the mantra of 'fake it till you make it', and imparts the importance of genuinely liking youself.
"Start with actually learning to like yourself, instead of trying to appear more confident. Interrogate the things that you appreciate about yourself and focus on that."
Do you see a beauty collaboration in your future?
"Absolutely!". Now that's a collab we'll be getting around.
If not beauty, do you have anything else exciting launching soon?
Good news for fans of Flex's original critial thinking card game, ReFlex, there's another one one the way. "A new edition of my self develoment card game called ReFlex 2.0. The first edition was a hit success, and was the fastest-selling online product on Sportsgirl’s website."
If you want to make sure you grab one before it (inevetably) sells out the card game is due to be released on the 20th of February 2020, so jot that down in your calander.
