I’m an advocate when it comes to the idea that less is more. Especially when talking about the essentials in my makeup bag. My latest discovery has been Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer, yep two in one. My routine as of late has been pretty minimal when it comes to beauty and I swear its partly because I love the way my skin looks with this foundation—a dewy and soft complexion. I swipe on a little mascara, subtle liner, a touch of blush and I’m out the door. Its long lasting but when it comes to needing a pick me up (post lunch or before dinner) I bring it along to touch up around my nose and under my eyes. There’s no doubt that this will be one of those basics I have to run out and buy again before it runs out.
