Daphne Oz has “two speeds for makeup.” She shared her 5-minute routine and 45-minute routine with us…
“I have two speeds for makeup: Five minutes when I am running out the door with my kids and want to look alive, and forty-five minutes when I need to be on camera. Any longer than that and I start to go crazy, so I’ve gotten it down to the bare minimum that still delivers really polished results. My five minute face is Tata Harper brightening serum and moisturizer mixed with some Charlotte Tilbury foundation and her Wonderglow, Milk Cosmetics undereye concealer, Stila eyeliner in Damsel, and two coats of Covergirl Lashblast mascara in Very Black, plus whatever dusty rose color lipstick I can find – I might rub a little on my cheeks as well.
My forty-five minute TV makeup face starts with the same brightening and moisturizing, and then I do heavier under eye coverage blending the Milk concealer with Wander beauty and Cle de Peau concealer. I apply Kevyn Aucoin foundation all over my face and use a beauty blender to smooth, then contour with the Kevyn Aucoin matte bronzing veil. I give my whole face a dusting of the Givenchy healthy glow powder – it makes your skin look like a doll’s. I flush the apples of my cheeks with some Surratt blush, then use a combination of Surrat eyeshadows depending on whether I want a lighter or darker lid. I do a cat eye flick with Sisley or Kevyn Aucoin brown eyeliner that I smudge with my ring finger and then blend out with an aubergine eye shadow. Then I go back for my two coats of mascara, let it dry, and apply my lashes (I love the Ardell Accent 318 demi strip). The last thing I do is run a black liquid eyeliner over the lash strip to make sure it’s invisible and apply my matte dusty rose or glossy nude lipstick.”
