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:
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
