These women battle ungodly wake up times and still manage to look picture perfect every morning.
And where does one wrangle a way to get this information from a brekkie presenter? Well, luckily for us, Natalia Cooper of The Today Show has divulged the 10-15 minute routine that gets her camera ready while most of us are still sleeping.
Sharing her super speedy makeup routine with 9Honey, the 34-year-old says the world is her makeup chair when she’s reporting on location for work.
“Anyone who picks up my handbag says that it weighs a tonne. I’m practically Mary Poppins. Inside you’ll find every makeup item required to get TV ready,” she says… proving she’s a woman after our own hearts.
“Most mornings you’ll find me doing my makeup in the dark, perhaps in the passenger seat of a car or in the street or it might be under the fluorescent light of a motel room bathroom.”
She sticks to a tried and tested routine which looks like a light base, a generous sweeps of bronzer, a peach-toned smokey eye and a one-step glossy lip.
You can watch a clip of Natalia’s very well-rehearsed routine here:
While some steps of her speedy routine are pretty standard, here are the key beauty takeaways we’ll be incorporating into our own routines:
1. Layer the base for maximum impact.
Natalia layers her base with a mattifying primer on her t-zone and a glowing primer on the high points of her face, like her cheekbones and forehead, to get the best of both worlds.
When it comes to her long-lasting base of choice, she goes for the Smashbox, Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation ($50).
