I do not know about you guys but I am all about the 3 minute face. It seems like that is about all I have the talent for anyways. I have never been one to spend much time on makeup application but with the help of Christy Coleman, Head of Innovation at Beautycounter, I just may be able to pull off a classic face. Christy not only is the cosmetics guru at Beautycounter but she is a celebrity makeup artist to stars like Emmy Rossum and Alessandra Ambrosio. For a limited time you can get the products featured that complement your skin tone for $125 (retail $195).
The 3 minute routine features some of Beautycounter’s most popular items. To begin, I use Tint Skin Foundation. It is a lightweight, creamy foundation that cares for your skin. The formula goes on seamlessly and blends effortlessly to cover imperfections and even skin tone. And hyaluronic acid, a natural moisture magnet, promotes smoother-looking skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I love to apply it with the Retractable Complexion Coverage Brush for a sheer, natural look. If you prefer medium coverage, the Flat Complexion brush is for you.
Next, apply Beautycounter’s Touchup Skin Concealer Pen to hide dark circles, redness, and other imperfections. Unlike other concealers that move or shift, this concealer stays put for long-lasting, flawless wear. Plus, the click-pen and brush applicator make it easy to apply just the right amount, even on the go. Formulated with knotgrass extract, the concealer helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and photoaging, so skin looks firmer, brighter, and instantly more even.
Now it is time to add some color with Beautycounter’s Blush Duos. They are designed to emulate naturally flushed cheeks and deliver the perfect amount of healthy-looking, luminous color. These satiny powders contain Porcelain Flower Extract (a Thai bloom known for its antioxidant benefits) to help moisturize the skin, blending seamlessly. Two complementary shades—one slightly deeper than the other—can be worn alone, layered, or even mixed together for a third shade option.
Follow up by adding dimension to you your eyes with Beautycounter’s Brow Pencils. They were developed to define brows so they appear thick and natural, yet polished—perfect for when you need to fill in gaps or even out color. The pencils go on smoothly and blend easily with the built-in brush wand. Offered in three natural-looking, matte shades that cover any hair color: Light, Medium, and Dark.
Lastly, top of your look with Beautycounter Lip Gloss. It is moisturizing and goes on smoothly—with no stickiness. Its unique teardrop applicator delivers the perfect amount of sheer, infinitely wearable color and subtle shine. It is available in three shades, Buff, Peony and Sienna.
