Do A Double Cleanse First!
Yes, even if you've only been indoors all day, but especially if you also went outside. Emma Roberts used the Biologique cleanser, and wipe it off with a cotton pad. You'll easily notice the gunk that's been removed!
After cleansing, make sure to exfoliate. Emma Roberts used the Barbara Sturm exfoliator.
Apply A Mask
If you have enough time, applying a mask will make your skin more supple, which will glow even after you put on make-up.
Emma Roberts uses the SK-II mask. You can store it in a fridge to make it feel more refreshing!
She also uses a face roller over her mask-clad face to define as well as nourish her skin.
Masks extract dirt from the deeper layers of the skin, so it's a great way to refresh yourself even if you're not going anywhere and just want to feel rejuvenated!
Put on Eye Cream
Eye creams keep the skin around your eye moisturized. This skin tends to be thinner and more sensitive, so having a moisture barrier is a great way to protect it from getting too dry.
Emma shares that she also lathers the eye cream under her brows, not just under her eyes.
Apply Face Cream
Emma currently uses Charlotte Tilbury face cream. Face creams keep the entire face hydrated, so your skin will look supple and fresh when you wake up in the morning!
Last but Definitely Not Least -- Sunscreen!
Yes, you have to put on sunscreen, even if it's 4:00 or 5:00 in the afternoon.
Sunscreen does wonders in protecting your skin from premature aging, sunburns, and skin cancer, so it's definitely not a step to miss!
Now, For The Make-Up!
For moms, the most important thing to remember is that you're already beautiful, so you only really need to take care of your natural look--the make-up, in this case, is just the cherry on top.
Before applying make-up, Emma uses the Wander eyepatch to lighten her undereye circles and lathers face oil on her face and neck to have a natural glow.
After about 15 minutes, remove your eye patch and apply foundation. Emma uses her hands to apply the Charlotte Tilbury instead of a blender, but you can do either! After this, she applies Color Corrector to the spots on her face.
She then applies a concealer, then uses a rose-water-spritzed beauty blender to blend the concealer on her face.
The look gives her a refreshed, effortless look. It's not heavy, but it brightens up her face and makes her look glowy.
She curls her eyelashes, puts on mascara, applies light eyeliner, and taps her face with the Chanel blush.
For her eyebrows, Emma uses eyebrow wax. However, if you have very fine eyebrows and need to fill them in, an eyebrow powder or eyebrow pencil will do just the trick.
Emma finishes the look with a lipliner, highlights on her eye crease (which you can also put on your cheekbones), then tops it off with an eyeshadow "to trick people into thinking you have more makeup than you actually do!" she says.
With this, you're all set and ready to go! This make-up routine can apply to everyone since it's very low-effort but ends with you looking effortlessly elegant and vibrant, so get that break you very much deserve!
