Has your morning routine changed a bit since you're no longer rushing out the door to see and be seen? Ours too! The "barely-there" makeup look is totally chic right now, and the OOLA and TravelAwaits Editors weigh in with their go-to makeup products during the quarantine.
Nicole: I have been living in SUPERGOOP's CC Cream. It is 100 percent mineral, color-correcting cream that softens the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. I love that it's super lightweight and contains SPF 35 sunscreen. It has more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, and easily replaces a daily foundation for me.
Jordan: Fenty Beauty's MVP Ultra Fine Brow Pencil & Styler. It looks natural and is perfect for the no-makeup makeup look. It's pricy but PAT MCGRATH LABS Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation is the best mid to low coverage foundation and is worth every penny to me.
Erika: I've used Bare Minerals classic mineral powder foundation for years, and it's super quick and easy to apply in the morning. It helps even out my complexion and a little goes a long way so I don't need to reorder very often. I also like that it's lightweight and sheer, so I don't feel like I'm putting on a face full of heavy makeup just to sit around my house.
Ellen: The only makeup I've been wearing on a consistent basis is nude lip gloss and eyebrow tint (sorry coworkers). I recently discovered Fenty Beauty lip gloss on a Sephora trip, and it's both long-lasting and brightens up my entire face.
Allison: I've been using a bit of concealer to help with the bags under my eyes and some mascara to make me look more awake (thank you, stress and homeschooling!). However, my main MVP during quarantine has actually been a lighter bronzer to help even out my skin color. I typically wear a fairly dense liquid foundation because my skin tends to be too rosy. Obviously, I'm not getting done-up to just sit at home, but sometimes the video meetings are a rude awakening without a bit of color.
