Everyone, meet Cyndle. Cyndle is a makeup artist whose work has graced the faces of Olivia Wilde, Taylor Schilling, Daphne Groeneveld, and Martha Hunt to name a few. But putting her work on those faces aside for a moment (as gorgeous as they are), what we really want to know is this: What makeup artistry does she treat herself to on a daily basis? Because, hello, this girl has "the look" down pat.
Well wonder no further because Cyndle, generous and beautiful as ever, filmed us a little Get Ready With Me. Shout out to her husband, photographer Stas, who helped put this together. Couple #goals out the wazoo. Let's get started, shall we?
Cyndle wakes up and washes her face with Tatcha One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil. It's good to remove impurities when applied to dry skin, and with water, it turns into a milky, comforting dream. If there's time, she'll multi-mask, putting the Glossier Mega Greens Galaxy Pack on her t-zone to deal with any breakouts, with the Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask on her cheeks to quench dry skin. Everyone has combination skin, remember?
Then she takes a quick moment for hair. Cyndle sprays Captain Blankenship Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray throughout, scrunches, and tucks behind her ears to dry. This results in smoothed roots with fluffy texture throughout the ends. Perfect. Moving on...
After 20 minutes, Cyndle rinses off the mask(s) and swipes MUN No. 11 Anarose Rejuvenating Rose Toner across her face with a cotton pad. This evens pH and helps to keep moisture in. Skin is like a sponge: It absorbs key ingredients better when it's hydrated—so now would be the time to add some serum. Cyndle likes the Pure Body Naturals Vitamin C Serum, which you can get on Amazon. Keep it in the fridge to make sure it stays super potent—use every day to address brightness + fine lines and wrinkles.
To prep for makeup (read: so it doesn't cake or crease), Cyndle uses Glossier Priming Moisturizer and Balm Dotcom on her face and lips respectively. Next up is Glossier Stretch Concealer in Light under her eyes and around her nose (really, anywhere you get red and would like to even out your color). The concealer is brightening, but if you really want to turn up the wattage, Cyndle recommends RMS Living Luminizer for cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, the Cupid's bow, and the inner corners of the eyes.
Eyebrows are filled in Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Ash Blonde and fluffed/held in place with Glossier Boy Brow in Blond. Lashes are curled first with the Shiseido Eyelash Curler and mascara'd with Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara. It's lengthening, thickening, separating, and anything else you could ever want in a mascara. Wipe off the wand first and then keep the brush very close to the root of the lash for just the right amount of perk.
Finally, some color comes next. With the Nars Yachiyo Kabuki Brush, she swirls some Nars for Christopher Kane Blush in Silent Nude from the apples of her cheeks up toward her temples. The color is more neutral than pink, so it's hard to mess up. Then, she finishes with Glossier Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick in Cake on her lips. The pale color is good to plump up what you have naturally, without looking like you're wearing anything. Isn't that always the goal anyways?
