"I'm all about using simple application techniques with a big wow factor," says Clinique Field Executive Maliaka Stanton.
“During the holidays, I’m always on the go and try to keep my routine low maintenance without sacrificing the glam factor. I’m all about using simple application techniques with a big wow factor,” says Clinique Field Executive Maliaka Stanton. Here's how:
Tip #1: Lip Prep
“I have full lips, which makes it that much harder to conceal texture imperfections. 7 Day Scrub is so gentle and creamy, it’s safe to use on even the most delicate lips. I apply a generous amount, massage it into my lips for a minute, then gently wipe it off. It makes my lips feel and look incredibly smooth.”
Tip #2: Statement Lips
“I love the precision tip of Chubby Stick Intense Lip Colour. It makes it so easy to apply, even when you don’t have a mirror and especially if you are applying a bold shade—my favorite is Mightiest Maraschino. First, I use the tip to line my lips which gives them shape and definition. Next, I fill them in. When it’s time for a touch-up, I simply reapply using the same quick and easy technique.”
Tip #3: Flawless Foundation
“For natural-looking foundation, I apply a small amount of Even Better Makeup SPF 15 to the areas where I want a more even complexion, which is usually around my cheek and jawline. I then use my Foundation Buff Brush to blend it in, using small circular motions. This really makes it look like a second skin and since it has 24-hour coverage, I don’t have to worry about touch-ups. My shade is WN 114.”
