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.

This week, the newest addition to the FITNESS Beauty team, Beauty Intern Cody Marick, doles out her beauty routine deets and favorite product picks.

Describe your style in three words or less: Obsessed with skincare.
What are the three beauty products you can’t live without? Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer, EltaMD UV Daily SPF 40 Sheer Moisturizing Facial Sunscreen and Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.
What’s your beauty routine in the morning? I cleanse with Cetaphil, swipe on Renee Rouleau Revitalizing Ginseng Toner with a toning cloth and then apply a moisturizing sunscreen (above). After that I’ll figure out what I’m going to do with my hair—usually just leave it down and natural or twist it into a bun. Then I’ll do my makeup. It’s different everyday, but always mascara. Always. I often reach for Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Washable Mascara.
At night?  Remove my makeup with Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes, cleanse with Cetaphil and my Clarisonic Mia, and swipe on toner (above). Then I apply a dark spot treatment—Kiehl’s, Clinique and Garnier make effective ones free of hydroquinone. Finally, finish with a moisturizer and eye cream.
Post-workout? Shower!
What beauty product or treatment instantly makes you feel good? A really great blowout.
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received (or thought of yourself)? My mom has been dabbing on eye cream (constantly throughout the day) for nearly her entire life—and it shows! She’s completely Botox and filler free. I hope that my adoption of her dedicated eye cream habit will serve me well, too!
