In this week’s Staffer Beauty Snoop, Senior Editor Bethany Gumper shares her keep-it-simple beauty routine and tricks that keep her looking flawless:
Describe your beauty style in three words or less: Ummm…lazy!
What are the three beauty products you can’t live without? Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleanser Wipes, Goody Spin Pin and Almay One-Coat Dial-Up Mascara. Ever since I got Lasik earlier this year, I’m more into eye makeup.
What’s your beauty routine in the morning? After applying moisturizer, I slap on the only five products in my makeup bag in this order: concealer, eyeshadow primer, blush, eyeshadow and mascara. The end. My hair is pretty much just dry shampoo and go. If down isn’t happening, a high bun is cute and easy.
At night? Shower + air-dry my hair + brush teeth + floss + hair in a ponytail + zzzzzz!
Post-workout? I always take off my makeup before I work out (which explains my love for those Clean & Clear Wipes). So it’s really just about hopping in the shower. If I work out during lunch, I spray my hair with Charlotte Ronson A Perfect Mess Beach Hair after showering.
What beauty product or treatment instantly makes you feel good? A massage. I don’t get them often, but when I do, I’m in heaven.
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received (or thought of yourself)? My friend Carolina, who has gorgeous skin, has been using spray-on sunscreen since before it was cool. So she got me hooked. It’s especially important before I head out for a run—no more tank top tan lines! My go-to is Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Sunblock Body Mist SPF 45.
