5 Minute Makeup;
Anything cream-based is quickest because it can be applied with your fingers. Find something multi-use like Stila’s Convertible Color creme compacts- formulas meant for both lips and cheeks. The same is true for your eyes, cream shadows can be swept on using your fingers, and have better staying power than most powder shadows.
Youthful Looking Skin;
There is a formula to create youthful looking skin, and it starts with a lightweight, luminous foundation like Laura Mercier’s Illuminating Tinter Moisturizer especially when you’re dry- to add radiance to the face- a quality our skin starts to lose as we age. Skip the powder- you don’t need it- and use a cream blush in a bright-yet-sheer hue.
Makeup for Breakouts;
You want to cover the breakouts you have without exacerbating the problem caused by using foundations that heighten inflammation. Use what I typically do, Jane Iredale Pressed Base. All bad opinions of mineral makeup come here to die since JI’s version provides complete, long-wearing, natural looking coverage while blanketing the skin with ingredients that help it to heal.
Preventing Eyeliner and Mascara from Running;
Nothing works better than Benefit’s She Laq- it’s a one-of-a-kind liquid that seals makeup and prevents it from wandering off where you don’t want it to go. Sweeping it underneath the eyes will form an invisible seal that color won’t seep into. There’s nothing else like it.
