Story Time: My Neutrogena Make-Under Thursday 23 February, 2012

I swung by Robert Verdi’s Luxe Laboratory during Fashion Week, and was pleasantly surprised to find Neutrogena on hand. I’ve always loved Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Acne Wash, but I’d never tried out their cosmetics.

I swung by Robert Verdi’s Luxe Laboratory during Fashion Week, and was pleasantly surprised to find Neutrogena on hand. I’ve always loved Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Acne Wash, but I’d never tried out their cosmetics. Lucky me: Makeup artist Michiko Boorberg was on hand doling out makeovers—or, in my case, a slight make-under (just like in Jane Magazine! Remember those make-unders?).

 Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towlettes

After some discussion about how far I was willing to strip-down my makeup look (lips, yes; eyes, no), Michiko whipped out Neutrogena Make-Up Removing Cleansing Towlettes and set to work on erasing every last remnant of my bright coral lip. “There’s really no reason for girls not to clean their face before bed with these,” she said, and I agree. They are the perfect lazy woman’s beauty item. Store a pack on your bed stand, and never again will you be excused for passing out in a full face of makeup. Never. Ever. Again.

 Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow Blush and Bronzer

From here Michiko touched up my skin, using Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 30 only where needed, and then she brought out the big guns: Healthy Skin Custom Glow Blush & Bronzer. I have to say: The bronzer made me glow—and I’d been running around all day! It applied evenly, and therefore didn’t have that dirty look oftentimes associated with bronzer. And the coordinating blush lent my cheeks that healthy pop of color that a “from-within-glow” should have.

 Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm

The focal point of my make-under, my lips, received a few swaths of Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in Healthy Blush. “I love this because you can wear it as a stain, or you can wear it as a base underneath your lip color; it’s very versatile,” Michiko said. What I liked: The balm lent my mouth a lip-smacking finish that wasn’t the slightest bit goopy, and deposited a small kick of color that only worked to accentuate my natural lip color. Though I loved my bright coral lip, I felt equal love for my toned-down make-under. Hey: There’s no shame in dialing-down the color!

What do you think? Do you like my make-under?
