Hey Friends, it’s Julianne Moore and I am going to walk you through my everyday skincare routine and my day-to-night makeup, look I travel a lot, so I need to find something that I can get kind of all over the world. I use a pretty standard face wash Cetaphil set of the film for years. I used to like a regular washcloth on my face to exfoliate, and then I was in this place. Called botanica bazaar in Amagansett and I saw this washcloth, and it’s a little bit I think exfoliator.
So my hands are wet and I’m going to put a little of this in my care routine or get more and more complicated I get older. I’ve always been really careful about, like uh, washing my skin and wearing sunscreen. Here’s my little um exfoliating washcloth, but don’t go, don’t rub too hard because you’ll rip your skin up. This is called elastane, and you put this wherever you have fine lines, because it encourages collagen growth, just squeeze it like this into your hand.
Okay, my next step is this: vitamin c serum is called pro heal and I take about four to five drops of it, these two one’s called C-QUENCE SERUM one is called antioxidant defense cream and you mix them. It seems complicated, but it’s not two squirts one, two of the serum one squirt of cream, this entire sequence I also do at night, but I only do the vitamin c serum once in the daytime.
Now for the neck, it’s called Nectifirm. So in case, you forget what it’s for it says neck you take two pumps of this foreign radio frequency I feel like that’s something that you can do that’s non-invasive. That makes a tremendous difference so and these products have been really helpful for me. Lastly, I had this amazing eye cream, which I really really love, because I’m very picky about eye creams because most of them are too sticky.
It’s really amazing because it’s very emollient, but it soaks right into your skin, so I use this in the daytime and especially at night. I use a lot of it, and while I wait for everything to soak in I’m going to use this tool. It’s by jillian dempsey, it’s called the Facial Bar Massager. I also go underneath my eyes with this, which is great because, if you’re feeling puffy kind of moves the fluid around and it feels really good- and this is something that I like to do when I’m in the makeup chair before I’m working in the morning.
So maybe, while somebody’s putting my wig on or doing my hair I’ll do this, this is my new favorite sunscreen Biore UV, it’s great under makeup. My mother was very fair skinned and she was concerned about us getting sunburned all the time, all the cheese she wouldn’t even let us go outside at the beach until after 3 O’clock, I’m going to only stay for a little while and then, as soon as there are affected sunscreens, we use those all the time now that my skin is prepped, we can move on to makeup. This is a really wonderful, foundation by hourglass I’m, just confused about that. Much and then I apply it with this little Blending Brush.
I, don’t like a lot of coverage, I like to be able to see the freckles in my skin and the color in my skin as well, but sometimes people think that I’ve covered my freckles on purpose, but it might be the light or the quality of the film how I’m being shot because I don’t generally cover my freckles. This is another hourglass product, it’s a really great, but very Pigmented Concealer.
So, where I like to use it I use it a little bit on my finger. My issue is always right underneath my eyes, like in my eye socket. This is also an area that used to bother me a lot when I was younger and it bothers me less now, I, don’t know why but I sort of feel like it’s actually just the shape of my face and my eye socket. So there’s not a lot. I can do to control it now. I’m going to add just a little bit of powder, not too much, but just enough I pretty much destroyed my eyebrows when I was a teenager and then I, let them grow in and then I destroyed them again and now they won’t grow back.
Drawing in my eyebrows is a major uh major feat for me: the brow pencil that I really really like, believe it or not, the shade that I use is blonde. So a lot of people think that redheads have red eyebrows, but they very rarely do they take the pencil and I start right in the middle and brow underneath and I fill it in so that it looks straighter. You rest your pinky on your nose so that you give yourself a little bit of ballast with it and it takes forever. If you have to go somewhere or if your husband’s yelling at you, we have to go, it can be really frustrating if I feel, like my eyebrows aren’t getting too archy, you can add a little bit of foundation right on the top and bring them down.
So there we go now: I have eyebrows I’m going to curl my eyelashes with an eyelash curler, and it just helps lift them up. I started tinting my eyelashes years and years ago, and it was always kind of a pain in the neck because you’d have to lie there for so long then I realized you can buy the stuff yourself so right now you can see I have a little bit of color on my lashes (Lash Comb Brush) because so this is something else that I found it’s called living libations.
It literally makes you look like you’re blushing, I use it on my lips, and I can also use it on my cheeks. You can see how sheer it is on my finger blends really quickly too it sinks kind of right into your skin. This is another product that I use the olea uso people always think that redheads look great in peaches and oranges personally, I think we don’t so I like things that are pinker or like plum and generally something pretty sheer, but I really really don’t. Like orange, my next step is this laura mercier eye pencil called amethyst finger, I like to put it sort of like very near the lash line, so my daughter is 20 years old and actually applies makeup beautifully. The one thing I always say to her is like, of course, don’t ruin.
Your eyebrows, like I, did mostly I tell her to take care of her skin. Don’t rub her eyes and wash her face screen so all the boring boring mom stuff- oh my god, I’ve worked with. So many really really amazing makeup artists and she was there from the time she was like a really really little kid watching it so and then sometimes it would make her up too. So she really I think learned from the best and I would not say that the best was her. Mom says that the best makeup artist for the professionals- it just happened to be in our bathroom when she was growing up so I like this Dior– show mascara because I like this color, it’s brown foreign.
If your eyelashes are kind of clumping together, you can use one of those eyelash combs, those little tiny metal ones to separate them. I like them quite a bit when I’m sort of starting out I was on a soap opera called as. The world turns, with the amazing Marisa, Tomei and I, used to watch her while she separated her lashes with a straight pin, which I thought was the coolest thing ever then Marissa and I found out years later. They were actually genetic cousins, which is pretty surprising, so if this is sort of like a regular day look, but if I was going out, I might do a red lip, so this is hourglass red zero. This is a great red super, warm, and vibrant hair out.
That’s it I did it I had my makeup: I am ready to go out thanks.
