I DON’T know about you, but I’m always trying to walk the line between bombshell beauty and easy-breezy makeup. There are times when I want to look amazing, but
a lot of those times I’m too lazy or tired to bother with an extensive skincare and makeup routine.
On the one hand, beauty isn’t everything but, on the other hand, how you present yourself to others is important, especially in a professional setting. Most of the time, I just suck it up and patiently apply my moisturizers and eye creams, my foundations and powders, and my eyeliners and lipsticks. I end up looking ready for anything that comes at me during the day, but I certainly don’t feel ready.
Fortunately, with so many skincare and beauty innovations, it’s become fairly easy to look fabulous and also not feel like you’ve packed on too much makeup.
Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask. For all the lazy girls out there, this product is heaven-sent and made especially for you. Not only is this DIY facial hydrating and able to remedy dull, sallow-looking skin, but its antibacterial properties also help to keep breakouts at bay. As someone who suffers from both dry patches and the occasional zit, this multitasking product is the answer to all my problems.
Sisley Paris Phyto-Eye Twist. In this day and age, who has time for powder eye shadows and brushes? I’d be lucky if I walked out the door with my eye shadows perfectly blended. The Sisley Paris Phyto-Eye Twist is perfect for me because I just apply it on my eyelids, smudge it with my fingers and go. No need to change and choose different brushes for applying and blending the shadows. Not only is it easy to use, it is also formulated with green tea, white lily and camellia to protect the delicate skin of the eyelids.
Make Up Forever Artist Plexi-Gloss. Who can be bothered with a lip routine that consists of lip balm, lip pencil, lipstick and lip gloss? I mean, that barely leaves time for the rest of your makeup. It’s a good thing then that Make Up Forever has come out with their new line of lip glosses, Artist Plexi-Gloss. These are great because they’re super pigmented, they feel comfortable on the lips, they have great staying power, and they create a high shine that can last for as long as five hours.
Rose de France Eau de Toilette by Historiae. Not only is looking and feeling good important to me, I also need to smell amazing. Rose is such a timeless and popular scent. It was extremely admired during the Renaissance period, and Historiae captures this era with their Rose de France Eau de Toilette.
Who says you can’t look good and feel good at the same time? You can step out your door feeling perfectly rested and energized while also looking as if you have a professional makeup artist on call 24/7.
