BeautyPerfect Pairing: Sunday Riley Tinted Primer & Koh Gen Do Liquid Treatment Concealer

New Year’s Beauty Resolution #1: Always put my best face forward–effortlessly polished, natural but better. New Year’s Beauty Resolution #2: Don’t give up on Resolution #1 seven days into January because it’s the coldest it’s been in decades and my ideal morning routine is better described as “turn over and go back to bed.”

Thanks to two powerhouse products in my bathroom cabinet, “effortlessly beautiful” takes on quite a literal meaning–and it can be achieved even with just a minute to spare. I start with Sunday Riley’s aptly named ‘Effortless’ Breathable Tinted Primer which I substitute for both moisturizer and foundation on super busy, lazy, or just-can’t-get-it-together mornings. Absent are the heavy silicones found in most primers; instead, the product is formulated with anti-aging peptides, moisturizing agents and Rejuvenox to keep skin hydrated, oxygenated, plump, and smooth. The tinted formulation also delivers a fair dose of color coverage–enough to even out any light blotchiness and sallow tones. Whatever it can’t hide, I simply touch up with Koh Gen Do’s Liquid Treatment Concealer, step 2 of the easiest two-step beauty routine in existence. The multi-tasking concealer is equally as effective at covering blemishes as it is as brightening under eye. The brush pen tip dispenses a saturated dose of color–a little goes a long way. I smooth the concealer onto the back of my hand and tap (never rub) the product wherever needed on the face with fingers.The gentle formulation, packed with botanicals and emollients covers and brightens, but never cakes. Whatever I have left over, I apply down the forehead and nose bridge as highlighter for the finishing touch. So simple yet so effective–who knew New Year’s resolutions could be this easy to keep?
