This week, we asked Associate Photo Editor Karina Dearwood to spill her beauty must-haves and secrets for an effortless look:
Describe your beauty style in three words or less: No-fuss and natural!
What are the three beauty products you can’t live without? Origins Starting Over Moisturizer with Mimosa, Dior Addict Lip Polish in Fresh Expert and Mally Double Ended Mascara.
What’s your beauty routine in the morning? I use Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo for a cleanser, followed by my Origins moisturizer. If I'm wearing my hair curly, I load up on the Matrix Smootherapie Leave-in Cream to fight frizz. If it’s straight, I give it a couple brushes. I finish with a few coats of mascara and lip gloss then I’m good to go!
At Night? Origins A Perfect World Cream Cleanser (I'm obsessed with this brand!) followed by Finacea Prescription Gel to fight problem areas once I go to bed. My favorite night indulgence is to put on foot lotion followed by fuzzy socks!
Post-workout? I usually exercise in the evenings, so after the gym I’ll take a shower and finish up with my nightly routine.
What beauty product or treatment instantly makes you feel good? A blowout at home or at a salon makes me feel ultra-glam!
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received (or thought of yourself)? The key to wearing makeup is to make it look like you’re not wearing any at all!
