In the rest of the world, leaves may be falling and autumn fashion looks appropriate but in LA, there are days when melting makeup weather is in full effect. Considering the amount of volatile weather exposure, long hours and transitioning schedules to early mornings and traffic filled evenings, it seems impossible to perfect a low maintenance beauty routine that can withstand a brutally humid day.
For school, keeping it simple with multitasking beauty products may be your best bet in retaining a pulled together look. Youthful skin with a fresh complexion, defined eyes and a pop of color is always in style. Using products with multiple benefits will get you out the door on time and into the classroom looking put together with ease.
Spend the most time on the skin! Detox daily with a skincare regime suitable for your skin concerns; the better care your skin is under, the less coverage is necessary which translates into comfortable, lightweight foundation, tints or for the lucky ones just a few strategic concealer dabs.
Once the skin is prepped, define eyes to camouflage fatigue. Curl lashes, tight-line the top and bottom waterline and wiggle a few good swipes of mascara at the roots of eyelashes to give the illusion of a full night’s sleep. Cheeks and lips should remain dewy with a bit of pink or coral to brighten up the complexion.
For the slightly more glam makeup lovers, sticking to simple still applies. Choose eye products with staying power but nothing too outrageous; remember glitter overload is totally distracting and can easily turn into a messy burden to maintain between classes.
