Lately, my schedule has been quite hectic which means I've had to cut down on my morning primping time so I've been practicing a makeup routine that ensures I can step out the door with glowing skin in ten minutes or less!
First, I prep my skin with three of my favorite new skincare products. After all, creating glowing skin requires a healthy canvas! I use Donell Mini Microdermabrasion twice a week to slough away dry flaky skin caused by the dry weather. The micro crystal beads doesn't tear my skin leaving it feeling soft and smooth so that my makeup glides on like butter! Next, I apply Donell Miracle C-Gel to enrich my skin with a high concentration of antioxidants that facilitate collagen production so that my skin stays smooth and glowing throughout the day. Lastly, I apply my Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream as a moisturizer to firm, sculpt, and correct any redness or discoloration.
Then I'm ready for my makeup! I've been using Youngblood Ultimate Corrector as a concealer to cover up dark circles, redness, and acne. I love the color duo as I can blend it to skin tone perfection. Next, I use my IT cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil to quickly fill in my eyebrows. It's easy to control and deposits just the right amount of color so I never have to erase and redo. Then I reach for my City Color Cheek Stain and apply it to the apples of my cheek for a natural flush. If I want to add some color to my lips, I use Too Faced Melted Liquified long wear lipstick for all day color that won't dry out. And before I head out the door, I brush my face with Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral SPF 45 to set my makeup.
And nope, I don't wear eye makeup anymore as I've been getting eyelash extensions by my friend and lash guru Arianna Montazem. My lashes are perkier and thicker creating a dark and dramatic "I'm not wearing eyeliner but look like I am" effect!
