Vixen Chat: Valery Ortiz on “Hit The Floor”

Valerie Ortiz Beauty ShotAre you big on working out?
Jillian Michaels kind of kick-started my love of fitness. I have always been a big fan, and I’m a nerd when it comes to the Biggest Loser. Watching people lose hundreds of pounds is so inspiring. I’m [also] really big on Zumba (which is dance inspired) and Insanity. I just like mixing it up.

What’s your on-set beauty regimen?
On-set, we have the best make-up and hair team. When we have really early calls, my eyes look really tired and they put these little cucumber pads under them. It feels so refreshing. My favorite foundation is Makeup Forever HD.

What products do you like to use off-set?
I am in love with Garnier’s facial products. They have this one moisturizer with SPF [that] I love. It’s super-light. I absolutely love L’Oreal’s Million Lashes Mascara. If I had to walk out of the house [wearing just one thing, it would be] mascara. I love Stila’s Banana lipgloss. I’m a huge MAC eyeshadow girl. It stays on forever.
