Reality TV veteran Audrina Patridge (she's appeared on The Hills, Dancing With the Stars and The Audrina Show) isn't necessarily known for her natural look. Which makes her an ideal candidate for xojane.com's makeunder series. Beauty editor Cat Marnell flew to LA for the site's first West Coast makeunder (former subjects have included Jersey Shore's Sammi Sweetheart and NY socialite Tinsley Mortimer) to style and interview Audrina at the Pier 59 Studios in Santa Monica.
The XO Jane team took Audrina's prep from three hours and about 35 products to 13 minutes and six products. Click over for impressive before-and-after shots and a somewhat rambling Q&A, where we learn a lot about the starlet's beauty habits, such as her penchant for anything coconut scented and her feelings on blow-drying her hair.
