From her always-perfect hair to her glowing skin, Tinsley always looks insanely polished. Everyone’s favorite housewife has been hitting the gym and focusing on wellness in preparation for a summer of fun. We sat down with the gorgeous blonde beauty to learn some of her secrets for looking so fabulous.


You look amazing! Have you always been into fitness?
TINSLEY MORTIMER: I have! Fitness has always been a big part of my life, especially tennis. I was actually a nationally ranked tennis player while growing up in Virginia, was captain of the tennis team at Lawrenceville, and then went on to play for Columbia University’s team.

What’s your current fitness regime? Any favorite workout moves?
TM: I’m currently obsessed with F45 Trainingit is the perfect mix of personal training and a class combined into one! I love the way they break up their classes. Some days are focused on cardio, while others are mainly weight training. Weight days are actually my favorites because they truly transform your body.

What about wellness? How do you relax and chill out?
TM: My favorite way to relax is by escaping the craziness of NYC for a little. When I’m not as busy with work, I love to travel. I recently went to Europe and always love taking weekend trips to the Hamptons.

What about if you need a cheat day meal or snack, what’s your favorite guilty pleasure?
TM: My all-time top guilty pleasures are pretty simplea good bread and cheese or Auntie Anne’s pretzels. On a more regular basis though, I love potato chips. They are light and give that salty crunchy taste, which makes you feel like you’re cheating without being terrible.

You always look so polishedwhat are your favorite beauty tips?
TM: I’m a strong believer in upkeep and maintenance, especially when it comes to hair, nails, and lashes. I visit Kyle White at Oscar Blandi on a monthly basis to touch up my highlights, get a gel manicure twice a month and am never without a good set of fake lashes. Having lashes allows you to wear minimal makeup and I love how they open up my face.

Any products you can’t live without?
TM: I can’t live without my Batiste Dry shampooit’s the best product to use after getting a blowout to make it last longer. I also use the Diorshow Black Out Mascara, which makes my lashes big and thick. For my face, It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Correcting Cream is the most amazing moisturizer and makes my skin feel so soft and healthy

Do you have any favorite healthy eating spots in the Hamptons?
TM: I love visiting The Gig Shack in Montauk for the most delicious and fresh fishthe sesame seared tuna steak is my go-to. After dinner, I’ll go to Lynn's Hula Hut for the best tropical yet healthy cocktails!

Finally, what are you most looking forward to for Summer 2018?
TM: I’m looking forward to getting out of the city and relaxing a bit. I always love to travel when I have a break from working and filming, I was just in Europe and I’m currently in Chicago. My birthday is also coming up so I’m looking forward to spending it with my mom and boyfriend Scott.
