Brittny Gastineau is a model, reality TV star, actress, designer, entrepreneur and more! You probably know her best from her Gastineau Girls days – the reality show she starred on alongside her mother – but these days Brittny is more likely to be seen as the face of a fashion or beauty campaign, strutting a runway at New York Fashion Week or designing for Tres Glam, a high-end accessory and costume jewelry line she founded with her mother in 2007. And, well, as the current face of tända ZAP™, the light-based advanced acne clearing device clinically proven to clear blemishes fast, we figured she’d know a thing or two about beauty too!
