BEAUTY BAR: Skin is In

BEAUTY BAR: Skin is In

The newest trend in makeup is looking like you’re not wearing any makeup at all. Unfortunately, this trend takes a lot more effort than rolling out of bed. Living in New York City you’re constantly out in the sun, pollution and smoke. These harming environmental factors can take a toll on your skin. This Fashionista makes sure she preps her skin before her putting on her make up. Skin care is the first step in any makeup routine.

She starts this process at night with an application of Glossier’s Super Pure. It’s a light weight serum that calms redness and break-out prone skin, so she can wake up in the morning with a clean slate. Whether is a late night out or an early morning class, Glossier’s Super Glow serum can brighten your skin no matter how much sleep you got. A vital step in any college girl’s routine. Next, might be the most important product on this Fashionista’s shelf, sunscreen. Yes, you need sunscreen even in the winter. A zinc oxide sunscreen is a great solution because its light weighty and as an added bonus zinc is a natural acne fighter. In order to keep your skin hydrated, she keeps Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with aloe and rose water with her wherever she goes. It hydrates her skin, leaving a matte finish and calming redness.

Her make up routine is as easy as it is beautiful. She starts with NYX Total Control drop foundation that matches her skin tone, so her face looks even and natural. The key to this look is enhancing your natural skin tone and texture. To give her that dewy Kendall Jenner glow she swears by Glossier’s Haloscope. It glides on for an easy application and gives just the right amount of shine. Lastly, she swipes on Revlon’s Super Lustrous lipstick in Toast of New York for a pop of color. (How appropriate.)

Stress breakouts are nothing new to college students. To fight pesky blackheads, whiteheads and anything in between, this Fashionista uses Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion for immediate relief. It’s the messiah of all spot treatments. Once a week she indulges in Lush’s Mask of Magnaminty. It’s a pure clay based mask with essential oils to soothe, moisturize and give that extra deep clean feeling.

Now that wasn’t so hard was it? If a college girl can do it, so can you. This fashion it-girl pairs this season’s trendiest pieces to go with her new natural, fresh faced look. To fight the New York cold she bundles up in a vintage jean jacket and light wash frayed jeans. Her smile is her best accessory, but I couldn’t help but notice her fire red nails and stylish, yet versatile Zara bag.
