Four Products I Must Apply Before Leaving My House

Jessica Varela


Ok, so I would be lying if I told you that I never left my house without makeup, but I just don’t feel like myself unless I take a few minutes to apply/use the following four products: eyelash curler, mascara, bronzer, and lip gloss.

First things first, I MUST curl my lashes. My stick straight eyelashes benefit greatly from a few pumps of a good lash curler, and, yes, I do curl after applying mascara. But that is another topic for another day. 

Next, I apply jet-black mascara to my lashes. Starting at the roots, I brush back and forth (with force) to the tips. After zigzagging through my lashes, I brush them upwards with several root to tip strokes.

After mascara, I sweep a bronzer on my forehead, nose, brow bone, jaw, neck, and in the hollow of my cheeks. I like to maintain a more natural texture to my skin, especially when I’m not wearing a foundation, so I use a cream product when bronzing. NARS Multiple in Palm Beach is my go to product for glowing, sun-kissed skin.

Lastly, I swipe on a little lip gloss in a natural, neutral color. Currently, my go to glosses are NARS Sweet Revenge lip gloss and MAC Prrr Tinted LipGlass.

The whole routine takes me about 5 minutes and is well worth the effort. My husband doesn’t have to fake telling me how pretty I look and I can walk to the mailbox with confidence. Wink, wink.
