How to Recover from a Winter Hibernation

Winter hibernation is over – friends are preparing for rooftop cocktail hours on 230 Fifth Ave, leisurely brunches at Imperial No. Nine and dinners al fresco at Dos Caminos.  That means redefining your sleep schedule. 

Instead of giving up your flawlessly refreshed complexion, check out the beauty tips from celebrity makeup artist, Mally Roncal for some easy, breezy steps for getting a radiant, well-rested look:

Step 1: First, start with a good moisturizer to smooth over any dry or flaky spots.
We recommend: L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Cream because it shields skin from harsh environmental damage and smells clean and delicate without harsh perfumes.

Step 2: Next, apply Mally Roncal Perfect Prep Poreless Primer to fill in your pores and fine lines, creating an invisible barrier between your skin and your makeup.

Step 3: Apply a creamy concealer underneath your eyes, and then dab on any blemishes. Even out your complexion with my Ultimate Performance Foundation and a powder brush to get that diffused, airbrushed look.
We recommend: Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer because it provides undetectable coverage that goes on smoothly and lasts (without creasing). Plus it highlights and illuminates the under eye area.

Step 4: Using a highlighter, apply to the brow bone, cheek bones, temples and down the center of your nose; swirl a universally flattering pinky-peach blush onto the apples of the cheeks.
We recommend: NARS Orgasm Illuminator somehow this shade matched every complexion, it replicates that healthy glow that you get after you have an intense…actually never mind, just trust us that it’s awesome.

Step 5: Use my Mally Roncal Volumizing Mascara and with the wand, apply inwards for a starburst effect that instantly opens up eyes.

Step 6: Finish by using my Mally Roncal Lightwand Eye Brightener. Take the pencil end and draw a sideways "v" in the inner corner of your eyes. If you want to take it to the next level, take the spring-loaded powder dabber on the other end, and apply it on top of the pencil!
