- The most crucial step is skin prep, and Celina usually starts her routine with serums, moisturiser and sunscreen
- For a quick routine like Celina’s five-minute look, a beauty blender is a lifesaver
- Celina opts for bronzer instead of contour because it is warmer on the skin and easier to blend
- To hack this quick five-minute routine, apply your brow freeze in an upward-sideways-downward-upward motion.
- For a balanced finished look, Celina’s hot tip is to apply your blush before concealer
- Choose a concealer that’s easy to blend and has full coverage. When blending, begin with the other parts of your face before the under eyes to allow the concealer to rest. Make sure you’re looking up while concealing the under-eye.
- Keep it simple with your foundation. For Celina, half a pump of foundation works perfectly for the darker parts of her face.
- The best way to set the face for a quick routine is to do it before blush and set it again afterwards.
- Celina advises the use of mascara on your bottom lashes regardless of whether you have lash extensions or not.
- To highlight her eyes, Celina likes to add a gold eye colour to the inner corners of her eyes.
- Celina’s perfect lip combo is simple – eye pencil to line, nude lipstick in the middle, lipgloss to blend it all.
