To take you from Night à Day, Brittany likes Kevyn Aucoin Volumizing Mascara, as it coats the lashes and lasts ALL day, ALL night, and on to that “I woke up like this” just-rolled-out-of-bed, a.m. look.
The best “refresh” products to use before bed or right when you wake up: If you tend to get oily, Mai Couture oil blotting papers will help remove shine while adding a bit of powder to touch-up at the same time. If you tend to get dry, Julie Hewett makes amazing Setting Sprays/Refreshing Mists in Cucumber and Rose to spritz your face when your skin is feeling a bit dehydrated. Keep these in your purse or next to your bed to look fresh at an hour of the day.
The key ingredients to getting the ultimately effortless faux “I woke up like this” look includes: tinted moisturizer, a soft pink blush, lip stain and a light coat of mascara. Brittany likes:
Ø Jouer Mini Luminizing Moisture Tint evens your skin tone while keeping it natural and giving that effortlessly flawless, dewy, moist clean skin look.
Ø Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer Foundation helps to conceal dark under eye circles and brighten under the eye. I prefer no. 9.
Ø Insider tip: Don't be afraid to use your fingers to blend/apply. Just be sure to touch lightly so you are blending and not removing the makeup.
Ø When it’s time to take it all off: Julie Hewett's Banish eye make-up remover takes off EVERYTHING and leaves your skin and eyes feeling great.
Must have in case of emergency: Mascara, powder, lip liner/ gloss, breath mints. These items can take you from hot mess to hot chick in a matter of moments.
