Low-Maintenance beauty is possible in the big city!
While spending hours getting ready for a special event or night out on the town can be fun, many New York City women prefer low-maintenance beauty routines. In fact, despite Gotham’s reputation for glitz, glam, and designer labels, you’ll notice most locals tend to sport natural-looking faces as opposed to heavy foundations and overly coiffed ‘dos. Take the effortless approach to looking your best with these must-have beauty products for big city life.
SUPERGOOP! CC Cream Daily Correct Broad Spectrum SPF 35+ Sunscreen
Some women layer their skin with serums, moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, foundation, and highlighter. Others opt for a CC cream with SPF protection and call it a day. This lightweight formula from SUPERGOOP moisturizes the skin, evens out skin tone, and refines the look of pores within seconds for a speedy morning routine.
CliniqueFIT Lip + Cheek Flush
Multi-use products are a definite must-have when it comes to low-maintenance beauty regimens. Clinique’s CliniqueFIT gel for lips and cheeks is especially great for gym-goers, giving the cheeks a subtle flush while leaving the lips with that perfectly “stained” pop of color, so there’s no need for a total makeup reapplication post-workout.
AMIKA Perk Up Dry Shampoo
Whether you’re running late for work or backpacking around Europe, dry shampoo will always be your best friend when you don’t have time to give yourself a proper wash and blowout. Simply spritz your roots, comb through your hair, and you’re good to go.
Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara
Haven’t quite mastered the art of winged eyeliner? Skip it. The right mascara will curl, lengthen, and define your lashes to give you that pretty, doe-eyed look.
Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer
Instead of pricey contour palettes and a handful of makeup brushes, Benefit’s Hoola Matte Bronzer is the perfect low-maintenance beauty alternative. Compact enough to take anywhere, a mere swipe along your cheekbones and eyelids adds a flattering touch of color and definition.
Stila All-Day Liquid Lipstick
Of course, even the most low-maintenance beauty mavens need the ultimate go-to lipstick. Stila’s All-Day Liquid Lipstick has been a bestselling beauty product due to its long-lasting formula and wide range of shades to complement any skin tone.
