My Latest Makeup Secret

My Latest Makeup Secret

Ladies, lean in. I'm about to tell you a secret that's free and might even give you a few magical minutes back...and maybe even some extra packing space. Quinn, tell us your secret already. Alright, alright:

No foundation.

I heard you gasp. And 2016 me gasped too. No, I'm not trying to feed you some boho hippie reasoning. Yes, I'm just trying to make your moisturizer work for you.

[General disclaimer for all of my makeup loving friends: I am not against foundation. Foundation makes for such an even base so that you can get to werk contouring, blushing, and lining. But anymore, I don't have the patience to do a full face for work. So, sue me (plz don't).]

Here is my new favorite morning routine (which I detailed here) that gives you that sweet highlight 'n glow without using illuminator/highlighter/sparkle-fairy-dust:

  • Generously apply Valjean Labs Replenish Gel or L'Oreal Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream.

  • Let it set (do not skip this step).

  • Apply L'Oreal Infallible Pro Glow Concealer beneath each eye, on the bridge of your nose, on your laugh lines, and on any blemishes.

  • Use the 3D brush to blend the concealer into your moisturizer and skin.

  • Take a selfie, you deserve it.

It's so simple, it's almost stupid, but it has streamlined my routine. What's your latest (makeup) secret? xx
