If there’s anything that can make my makeup routine more streamlined in the morning, I’m all for it! So of course, I loved working on these one minute makeup tips videos for my partnership with Laura Mercier and Byrdie! This was part of a project with them and my fellow beauty YouTubers Melissa Alatorre and Deepica Mutyala, It’s been so fun working with them and the brand! In case you missed the previous posts, you can see my Mystery Makeup Challenge and my Flawless Face look from our collaboration up now!
The base of every makeup look and tutorial is a smooth, even complexion. Even if I don’t do full makeup, I usually start with some essentials for an even skin tone. Thankfully, with just two products, you can do this in under a minute! Start by applying Laura Mercier Candleglow Concealer and Highlighter in #1 under your eyes. I don’t usually get dark circles, but whether you do or don’t, a little brightening boost can really make your eyes pop! Next, apply the Candleglow Concealer and Highlighter to get rid of any darkness around your nose, and on smile lines around your mouth. After you’ve brightened your face with concealer, set it using a powder brush. For the finishing touch, use Laura Mercier’s Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder in #2. It really gives your face a nice glow and smooths out your skin tone and complexion!
For a day where I’m running errands and want to look bright and fresh faced, this is my go-to makeup routine. There’s so much you can do just with the Candleglow Concealer and Highlighter and the Candleglow Perfecting Powder that they’re always in my makeup bag!
