10/15/20minutes in the morning
The Gee Girls share their morning-time essentials when time is of the essence! It’s all about condensing your AM routine, not compromising –so the right mix of modern, multi-tasking products are a must to give gorgeous & go in under 20 minutes!
Ceramic Slip cleanser with a splash of cold water keeps my pores tight and my skin clear. Next its 3 drops of Phloretin CF, 3 drops of Serum Repair (to lift, firm and plump) plus dab of Physical Fusion SPF 50. I turn on my T3 Curling Wand while I apply Bright Eyes to literally brighten my eyes!
Natural Beige Foundation Stick goes under my eyes, around my nose and mouth to conceal and smooth. I blend with our Contour & Highlight brush (my favorite to blend with because the synthetic hair is firm and it helps to smooth the product well). Soft Taupe Brow Definer fills in my growing brows (I use GrandeBrow nightly), and Adobe blush sweeps along my cheekbones (and also in the eyelid crease for natural definition! See Blender brush). I apply 3-4 coats of mascara (thanks to GrandeLash I have longer, fuller lashes). A Gee Thing lipstick is my daily uniform - it’s the perfect pinky-nude creamy lipstick.
ONE LAST THING
Next, I wrap different sections of my hair in the wand, spray with Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray (available in-studio) and comb through with my fingers for texture and a touch of messy. Le Labo’s Santal 33 is the last thing I put on as I slip out the door!
Next, I apply Natural Beige Foundation Stick all over my face and blend with my Foundation brush for flawless-looking skin (plus it hides large pores!). Brows are filled in with Brunette Brow Mascara (takes a second and makes them look super natural). Coal eyeliner on top lash-line and 3 coats of our Luxury Black Mascara. I sweep Medium Bronzer all over my face with our best-selling Fan brush, Afterglow Cream Blush up my cheekbones and a little dab on my lips and I’m done!
ONE LAST THING
While I’m doing my makeup, my hair is up in a loose top-knot that I’ve sprayed with Oribe Impermeable Spray for a little volume. My T3 curling wand is heating up so that I can twist a few pieces for a wavy, beachy effect (leave the ends off the wand so it looks a little-less “done” and more modern). One last spray of Impermeable, plus my Le Labo Labdanum (a non-negotiable) – and I’m out the door!
Masks are the perfect way to smooth out the skin, even out my complexion, brighten my tone, and make me look less tired. I apply a hydrating mask in the morning (even under my eyes because formulas are gentle enough to nourish this delicate area - plus it's where I need the most concentration). I save the exfoliating mask for my PM routine (coming soon!).
I wash with Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser – it’s detoxifying and hydrating all at once. Next I spray Beauty Elixir all over my face – I let it absorb and feel it firming my skin. I apply Rose De Vie Hydrating Mask all over my face and neck and leave on for 10 minutes. It's clear and absorbs in quickly (sometimes I a pply this in-flight to replenish my skin. Nothing zaps your moisture levels like travel!). I remove with warm water and apply another spray of Beauty Elixir, along with 4 drops of Phloretin CF and Luminous Glow. Next - 2 pumps of our Tinted Power Primer in Prime Medium (coming soon!) with our Foundation brush. I brush my brows and fill in with Soft Taupe Brow Blender, dab Medium Peach concealer under my eyes, Fiji Bronzer on my cheekbones, forhead and jawline – then finish with I’m a 10 lipstick.
ONE LAST THING
To finish, I always spray Le Labo Labdanum 18. I love to pair a bold lip with a ponytail so I slick my hair up and spray with Oribe Superfine Hair Spray and go!
