How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? Between getting the kids prepared for school, making sack lunches, taking out the trash and the million other errands you have to do before you can walk out the door for work, it might seem like you have to get up before daybreak just to get through a seemingly tedious makeup routine. Thank goodness for Kevyn Aucoin makeup products and beauty tools, which help transform your morning makeup routine from laborious to lovely.
For the mornings when there’s no time for foundation and concealer, reach for the Sensual Skin Enhancer, one of the fastest time-saving tricks in the Kevyn Aucoin makeup line. After moisturizing your face, dab a bit of the enhancer under your eyes and over blemishes to conceal them. Then blend in a pin-sized amount of enhancer over the rest of your face. Apply more of the product as desired for greater coverage.
Use the Kevin Aucoin The Mascara line to instantly make your eyes pop, even without eye shadow. Add a couple of coats of the dark black Volume Mascara to your lashes and allow it to dry. Then pump the Kevyn Aucoin curler a few times over your lashes to make your eyes look like they’re smiling.
If you’re really pressed for time, pull out your secret weapon: The Mascara – Curling. The special Japanese formula in this mascara individually coats and curls each lash so you can skip the eyelash curler.
Complete your look with Kevyn Aucoin lip gloss, and be out the door in under five minutes.
It's the first day of summer and are you ready for sunny happy hours, influx of hamburgers and hotdogs, and the amount of possible sun damage you might be exposing yourself to? Probably not and that isn't a real surprise. When I leave the house for work on Friday my thoughts aren't always on if I made sure I packed my sunscreen for that afterwork picnic, but if I'll need to re-touch my makeup prior to going.
Although its difficult, sun protection needs to be at the priority level of our beauty routine going into these warmer months and luckily great formulas and packaging to accommodate every lifestyle means there's not many more excuses we can give. To make the decision making process a lot easier take at our Summer SPF Guide:
I've fallen in love with not only Supergoop's mission to provide UV protection free of paragons, petrochemicals and fragrances but also their ingenious packaging to suit busy families on the move. Case in point: Supergoop SPF 30+ Endless Summer Pump that comes with a cut out circular handle that kids would love to bring to the car! It's lightweight and water resistant and ideal for every member of the fam, from fourth months of age and up!
Get your SPF sexy back with Soleil Organique. Their beautiful tan and gold packaging eludes 'I'm a high roller' plus each product is filled with anti aging and skin nourishing technologies as well as being made of 100% mineral and marine based actives. I'm a high maintenance girl and like to have a bit of my face on when going to the beach and don't want to wipe it off with sunscreen. My dream product for those who think like I do is Soleil Organiques 100% Mineral Sunblock Mist SPF 45. Simply spritz your face like a toner a few times and you're covered and still looking fab of course.
