I'm an all-or-nothing type of girl when it comes to makeup.
If I'm at the office, my typical everyday face includes full-coverage foundation, neutral eyeshadow and curled hair (see here). You know how some people do yoga or go running as their self care? For me, it's doing my makeup first thing. I genuinely look forward to it and love how it makes me feel.
But if I'm running errands or not leaving the house all day, see ya later. I'm doing none of it. It's no makeup and hair slicked back, always. And I'm happy with that too.
Need a laugh? Here are things you never say in 2021. Post continues after video.
Since working from home (again), I've had to find a happy medium between those two extremes for my occasional Zoom meetings. And after five weeks of this, it's become my go-to makeup look.
My newfound routine is simple, takes five minutes and makes me look put together from the waist up (they can't see my fluffy slippers!). Here's how I do it.
1. Skin tint.
The one great thing about Zoom is that no one can see the little things you might not be loving about your face. Struggling with isolation skin? Dark circles? Pigmentation? There's a good chance no one can see it through the screen.
So, when I'm at home my full-coverage foundation stays packed away and I opt for a skin tint.
An ultra-sheer alternative to foundation, BB/CC cream and tinted moisturiser, a skin tint provides just enough coverage to even out skin tone but leave the finish looking natural.
My current favourite is the Ciaté London Dewy Skin Glass Glow Skin Tint, $49, as it conceals any redness, takes two seconds to apply (fingers only!) and lasts all day.
