Now that Jersey Shore just got signed for a sixth season (and its fourth in its original home, Seaside Heights, NJ), Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola is back to prepping her shore beauty survival kit.
Included in her arsenal: her hair straightener, Dove volumizing shampoo, her favorite Motives by Loren Ridinger bronzer and her brand-new fragrance, Dangerous Desires ($21, dangerousperfume.com), which follows in the footsteps of her January 2011 launch, Dangerous.
“Dangerous smells like vanilla and almond bean, but Dangerous Desires is very citrus-y and tropical. It smells like orange and is perfect for the beach and summer,” Giancola, 25, tells Us Weekly.
Besides being a celebrity perfumer (her housemates Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who is pregnant with her and her fiance Jionni LaValle’s first baby, and Jenni “JWoww” Farley have their own fragrances for women, too), the Jersey Shore star also prides herself on being a pro at applying completely flawless, fool-proof bronzer.
“Start off with a clean face. Highlight your cheekbones, then brush around parts of your face that you want to enhance, like your nose, forehead and chin,” she explains to Us of her application method.
Adds the brunette beauty who prefers rocking glitter nail polish, sheer lip gloss and wouldn’t be caught dead with her hair up (“I just don’t like it,” she says): “If you look like you have a good tan, then you don’t have to wear much makeup on the beach! I don’t even wear foundation anymore — I just wear bronzer.”
