In the past she has gotten candid at her personal blog, ‘..East of the Mississippi’; used her feminine point of view to counter the masculine opinions of her male BFF on topics like dating, relationships and online etiquette on a second blog, Friends Don’t Let Friends; and served as social media consultant for a natural hair and skincare line. She is currently a Communications Specialist in the diversity field. Read on to find out what’s in Adriene’s Ultimate Beauty Arsenal.

Hair: Curls Unleashed Sulfate-free Shampoo, Obia Natural Curl Hydration Spray, and the Q-Redew Handheld hair steamer. These three products are major staples in my hair regimen. I must say that next to my Clarisonic, the Q-Redew steamer is my favorite beauty gadget. What did we do before this kind of technology?

My favorite product right now is Benefit Cosmetics ‘They're Real’ Mascara. Amazing product -- lightweight, no clumping, and not too much drama!

Skin care: Two words: MARIO BADESCU! There are so many products from their line that I enjoy, but my favorite is the enzyme cleansing gel.

Nails: Nail color is not a major necessity for me, but I like anything that has an amazing pigment that pops!

Fragrance: Angel by Thierry Mugler is a great everyday fragrance.

Beauty Indulgence: A great facial is one of my favorite indulgences, along with monthly waxing sessions!
