A Beauty Minute with Alice Gao

2 weeks ago by

Morning: I’m currently using Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser, followed by a few spritzes of Sjal Skincare’s Mineral Kalla Energy Tonic, then bareMinerals Skinlongevity Serum, and Drunk Elephant Eye Serum. For moisturizer I’ve been digging the May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon.

For makeup, I rotate foundations and tinted moisturizers based on how much coverage I want, but I am digging the Armani Power Fabric foundation, which I apply with a BeautyBlender sponge. I am pretty minimal with makeup but have to do my brows, which I use a Shu Uemura hard formula eyebrow pencil on, followed by their Eyebrow Manicure. I curl my lashes with the Surratt eyelash curler and usually forgo mascara. I generally use a La Prairie cream blush or a Chanel powder blush. If I’m feeling extra shiny, I use the Charlotte Tilbury ‘Air Brush’ powder, which my cat has recently smashed and it’s now in crushed powder form!

Day: Always in my bag is OLO fragrance oil, chapstick, lipstick (usually NARS or bareMinerals).

Night: I wash my face with First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser (sometimes twice, first to get the makeup off) but I also love the Saturday Skin Rise + Shine Face Cleanser, then follow pretty much with the same products I use in my daytime routine. Sometimes I swap the Blue Cocoon for an oil, usually the one from Drunk Elephant.
