I have had problem skin as long as I can remember. I love makeup and love trying out different products, but my oily and break out prone skin means that I have to be very careful in my skin care and make up routine. Neutrogena is one of my favorite brands for everyday skin care - from cleansing to moisturizing to acne treatments to cosmetics. Their makeup is specially made to achieve clear skin. It contains salicylic acid and antioxidants that keep my skin healthy while providing great coverage for a non-cakey, natural look. The brand ambassador of Neutrogena and the star of hit TV show Nashville Hayden Panettiere has the perfect skin and she shares her beauty tips in a series of videos how she uses Neutrogena cosmetics for her day look -whether it is a night out, or on the sets or on her day off. I love her day off look as it is natural yet makes her look polished and put together.
Hayden's 'day-off' look is perfect to start a day with light natural make up. For me, I usually keep my make up natural and I can take it from natural to glam by putting on some blush and my favorite red lipstick!
I always start my makeup with a primer. A primer evens out the skin and helps your foundation go smoothly. It also helps my make up last longer without settling in my pores. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Primer contains Natural Soy, a tone correcting ingredient, and helps to even the look of skin. I use it with my flat brush or impeccable clean fingers.
After primer comes the foundation. I am using Neutrogena Healthy Skin liquid makeup (I got mine from Target) in warm beige 90. BTW, Make sure to save 10% of Neutrogena cosmetics in Target - the offer ends on August 16.
Target is also hosting a beauty concierge event in select stores where you will get expert advice and beauty tips from highly-trained, brand agnostic beauty experts. Event begins August 24th. Limited quantities available. Check your local target for more information.
I start by dotting the liquid make up all over my face and gently sweep it across my face with a foundation brush or clean fingers.
Next, I used Neutrogena Skin Clearing mineral powder to set the foundation. I love the big buffing brush for my pressed powders for a smooth finish.
Make up tip: Swirl the buffing brush first clockwise, then anti clock wise for a perfect airbrush finish. Make sure to blend in at your jawline and neck for a seamlessly blended look.
Next comes the eye makeup. I used an Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner and smudge it to on my lashline for a natural look. You can easily go from natural to smokey eyes with the smudge tip.
After applying eyeliner on the upper lashline, I apply a brown matte eyeshadow to my lower lashline. The lighter shade helps my eyes open up and look bigger.
A mascara is my proverbial 'if-you-get-stuck-on-an-island-with-only-one-beauty-item' product! LOL! Neutrogena Healthy Volume mascara has olive oil to keep the lashes conditioned and its clump free silky formula builds up volume by 400%!
Make up tip: I use my index finger wrapped up in a face tissue to bend the lashes upward AFTER I apply mascara - the effect is like using an eyelash curler and the curl/bend in the lashes last whole day!
Neutrogena Lip Color Stick in Berry helps me finish off my all day look. This lipstick is semi matte and very moisturizing. I love the 'Berry' shade.
..and voilà I am done! Ready for my day - wherever it takes me!
