Friendsgiving Game Face: 7 Beauty Picks For A Perfect Daytime Look

No one is wearing a full face to Friendsgiving, am I right? Keep that skin glowing through the season with balanced, but richer, natural oils (here are a few of our faves) and then simplify your beauty routine for a look that says, “I woke up like this…and then made all these amazing side dishes without breaking a sweat.”

Beauty-blogging babe Annie Atkinson is sharing her daytime look essentials with us below – and we kind of love that she’s kept the idea of a perfectly winged eye fully in the mix…

What do a rested appearance, luminous skin and rose-bitten plump lips have in common? They’re all part of your daytime beauty prescription this autumn. The fall shows, and even Rolling Stone’s latest and most-stunning-ever cover of a makeup-free Adele, proved yet again it’s time to invest in skincare and streamline your makeup routine. Don’t hide behind heavy concealers or foundations, but instead embrace and enhance the real you.

An edited makeup routine doesn’t have to be bland or boring or even makeup free – but it should be real. Create something fresh and modern by adding a pop of color to the lips, add volume to your lashes for a boost of confidence, and paint your nails red – all in ten minutes or less.

The best part of this clean new look is that it goes perfectly with that cozy cashmere sweater, autumnal colored leaves and a ’70s-inspired center part. Allow me to introduce your daytime beauty guide, simplified.

Estelle & Thild Hydrate All-In-One Tinted Moisturizer

Perfect and radiant skin starts here. This light wash of gorgeous color plumps and evens your skin tone and minimizes your pores without loads of makeup. It’s certified organic and made with magical ingredients like hyaluronic acid and flower water. This is your skin’s new best friend.


Fresh Super Rose Extreme Lip Treatment SPF 15

If something works, don’t change it! This cult classic is the perennial handbag essential and now comes in a limited-edition rose-decorated case. It’s made of rose oil and features that same sheer rosy tint.


Eyeko + Alexa Chung Eye Do Mascara

Statement lashes made a comeback this fall. Eyeko has dominated the lash (and brow) market with its innovate and high-performing products, and this mascara is no exception. Take it from Alexa Chung: “This gives me longer, thicker, blacker lashes without the hassle of falsies.”


Drunk Elephant Lippe

This is the sort of lip balm that causes serious addictions. It’s non-toxic, yet powerful and small enough to fit into a pocket. It’s made of avocado, marula and cranberry and your lips will just love it. If you want to get creative, pop a little around the corners of your eyes for added glow.


SK-II Mid-Day Essence

For those of you who need a little refresher, an essence is like a lightweight serum that has the power to penetrate makeup to lock in moisture – making it the perfect afternoon treat. Keep a bottle in your bag and on your desk for an instant boost of pitara, the hallmark ingredient in SK-II’s highly innovate line.


RMS Beauty Nail Polish in Beloved

Organic beauty queen Rose Marie Swift just launched nail polish. The collection is made of 10 beautiful colors that are 5-free and vegan. Beloved is the perfect French red with just a hint of poppy. It is inspired by her best selling lip2cheek of the same name. Why not get them both?


Glossier Boy Brow

No look is complete without paying serious attention to the brows – a step that many consider the most important. Glossier has recently developed this small but seriously awesome brow tool. It does everything you need: thickens, fills in, grooms and adds hold. Basically, it’s everything you need and more.
