I said it before, and I will say it again: I don't like wearing foundation! Aside from the fact that it took me a really long time to find one that blends with my skin and isn't obvious, somehow I still feel like I have a mask on whenever I wear one. I do of course wear foundation on a regular basis, as we shoot practically everyday and wearing one on camera is rather a necessity. But on my days off, foundation-free is what I opt for. A bit of eye-liner, some mascara and chapstick, and I am good to go!
The simple trick behind going foundation-free is proper skincare and the right products. Pair it with a proper diet and exercise and your skin will be sure to thank you (I can't even begin to tell you how much my skin improved once I introduced more fruits and vegetables into my diet and started running on regular basis),
What I mean when I say proper skincare is consistency. Once you get your skin-care routine down, follow it on regular basis. It took me some time to get it right, but now, I never skip my morning or evening routine, no matter what! And it makes all the difference.
The right products are important too. I happen to be skin-care obsessed and pressed for time, so I am always looking for multi-taskers to simplify my beauty ritual. And lately, the one magic skincare product I can't do without is VENN’s Age-Reversing All-In-Concentrate.
What I like about this particular product is the fact that it seriously cuts down my prep time in the morning and evening by removing the need for additional steps like toner, serum and essence. I apply 2-3 pumps of VENN to a cleansed face twice daily and simply follow up with my SPF.
This age-reversing concentrate uses premium plant-based ingredients, keeps my skin nice and hydrated, and improves signs of aging like lines and wrinkles. I know that I mentioned that I have a few discoloration marks on my cheeks thanks to my sun-worshiping ways, and they have become a lot less noticeable lately, thanks to VENN.
Now on my days off, my makeup takes no time at all. I simply cleanse my face, add a bit of eye makeup to brighten the face, some creamy lip color and finish by applying VENN all over the skin to achieve that glowy look and keep my skin soft and hydrated throughout the day. Basically, I’m ready and out the door in less than 5 minutes. Love that!
