The makeup routine you have to follow (when you have a 9 AM job)
This article is for you, if you are one of those girls who:
- Don’t have time to apply 20 products to your face before going to your 9 AM job, or
- If you just don’t enjoy fake eyelashes.
I am both, but I also love to look fabulous. I am no make up artist, just a regular girl with a marketing job that its about to share her “beauty secrets” with you.
First, I obviously wake up and wash my face with Neutrogena Exfoliating Cleanser, I am a fan of this blue miracle bottle because it leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated, like no other product!
Pay attention to my second step: Toner! I also vote for Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner, I was not a fan of toners when I was a teenegar, but after I tried my first bottle, I could not go back. It is great for your skin and what I love the most about this step, is that I can make sure my skin is clean!
Third step: Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, treat your skin as it deserves to be treated! Before I apply any makeup, I make sure I moisturize my skin. This lotion is amazing, it maintains optimal moisture balance and controls oil perfectly in my T-zone. Could not be happier with the results!
Since I work in an office and my skin doesn't see the sun as much as I wish, I don’t apply sunscreen everyday, but if it's one of my lucky days around the city, I use Mac's Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50.
Time for MAKEUP
I am a strong believer that the order of the factors does not affect the result, at least that’s what my mom always tells me… So I start by applying a foundation and concealer.
My favorite foundation is Mac - Studio Fix Fluid, I love the fact that it keeps my face looking fresh and natural all day!
As I told you, sometimes I apply foundation first, then concealer… but always always wear concealer! As Latina, I have huge dark circles that I have tried to cover with everything! Until I found this beauty: NYX - Dark Circle Concealer. It works like magic!
The essentials are ready, now time for some color: Marc Jacobs - Air Blush Soft Glow Duo. I recently found this blush because I was reading a blogger’s post and I have to say that I fell in love.
Ladies, the most exciting part is coming so pay close attention...
LIPS: I obviously have tons of lipstick brands, but If I had to recommend one: L'ORÉAL Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick is my favorite choice! What I love? You pay $10 dlls and get the best quality in tons of different colors!
Last step: SMILE and get ready to shine!
