For many of us, the day begins with Nicole Ryan.
She’s a popular radio personality and host of “The Morning Mash Up Show” on SiriusXM Hits 1 (with 10 million+ listeners daily!) and a lifestyle correspondent. As a girl on the go, Nicole, an Upper East Side resident, has many city-chic beauty secrets. Here are the top three ways she gets glam each day.
1. Clinique Airbrush Concealer $19.50, Sephora.com
“This is the first piece of makeup that goes on my face every day. I have terrible hereditary dark circles and this makes them disappear in seconds and it goes on just like the name suggests…as smooth as airbrush. I live for the consistency!”
Nicole’s tip: “Always put on with a concealer brush so it doesn’t look like you’re wearing it!”
Tidbit: Touch on with brush where skin needs brightening cover: inner and outer corners of eye, sides of nose, etc.
2. Lancome Advanced Genefique Serum $104, Sephora.com
“An esthetician recently told me besides moisturizing, the single best anti-aging trick is to start using a serum. It goes on before any eye cream, moisturizers or makeup.”
Nicole’s Tip: Use in morning and at night – you have no idea how much your skin takes in while you sleep.”
Tidbit: The product comes complete with an exclusive self-loading dropper that gives you the perfect dose of serum for each application.
3. Loreal Colour Riche Le Gloss (in every color) $7.95, stores nationwide
“They are juicy and just the perfect amount of stickiness! They also go on sheer with just a hint of color.”
Nicole’s Tip: Put on a touch of lipstick with this gloss over it for a real pop if you want a more dramatic lip.
Tidbit: The gloss is infused with ultra-hydrating Omega 3, protective vitamin E and Argan oil.
