Staffer Beauty Snoop: Editorial Intern Lisa Turner

Written on June 21, 2012 at 9:25 am , by

A fresh crop of summer interns are inhabiting the FITNESS office, so we asked Editorial Intern Lisa Turner to give us a peek at her beauty routine and spill the secrets to her bright-eyed look.

Describe your style in three words or less. Polished, low-key, simple.
What are the three beauty products you can’t live without? Vaseline! I would die without it. I use it all day as lip balm, and then at night to take off my eye makeup after I wash my face. I also love  MAC Cosmetics Studio Finish Concealer for under my eyes. I’ve had it for years and am just running out now. Lastly, bobby pins. You can never have enough! Somehow I manage to lose them really easily.
What’s your beauty routine in the morning? After washing with a salicylic acid cleanser, I spot treat any breakouts that have appeared overnight. Next, I smooth on an oil-free foundation, put concealer under my eyes and dot Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage on any imperfections. I set it all with a loose powder, then add a peachy powder blush on top. If I’m going to work, I’ll add a little eye shadow and mascara. I usually just stick a lipstick in my purse to apply after my morning coffee. If I’m going out, I’ll line my lids with a liquid or cream formula in black. I don’t put eyeliner on the bottom rim because I feel like it makes my eyes look small and tired.
At night? Cleanse and spot-treat. I’ve recently been using the Avon Anew Resurfacing Expert Serum too, and I spread it on my face, neck and chest.
Post-workout? Shower! Sometimes I’ll wash my face, too, but I try not to wash it too often, so I’ll just give it a quick rinse.
What beauty product or treatment instantly makes you feel good? Red lipstick makes me feel really sassy.
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received (or thought of yourself)? Don’t overpluck! Take chances and do your best to hide imperfections, but don’t go overboard. We almost always look better if our natural features are showing through.

Create The Perfect Ballerina Bun

Written on May 23, 2012 at 12:31 pm , by

This simple, chic style looks great both at the gym and on the town. As the warm weather approaches, it’s an easy way to keep your hair out of your face while still looking fresh and glam.  All you need is a hair donut, two ponytail elastics and bobby pins to create the perfect bun.

  • First, wrap your hair into a pony, securing it with an elastic. Go higher to create a ballerina-esque bun.
  • Next, pull your hair through the donut. Tip: Choose one that’s close to your hair color.
  • Then spread your hair evenly around the donut, covering it completely with your strands, and place the second elastic over the hair.
  • For the final touch, lock any loose ends in place with bobby pins.
