Emily Alyn Lind, who stars in HBO Max’s Gossip Girl reboot, found her way to skin care after a bout of breakouts and cystic acne as a young teenager. “I want to highlight this cleanser because it really changed my life,” the 22 years 1999 2021 casting crowns thank you for the memories shirt it is in the first place but 19-year-old New York native says of a dermatologist-recommended prescription face wash–the steadfast first step of her morning getting-ready regimen. Next up? An oil-free moisturizer from Trader Joe’s. “I’ve tried everything, and this is the only one that works on my skin,” she reveals, before slathering on a Supergoop! matte SPF and a daub of glossy Dior Lip Glow Oil, which brings out the natural pigment of her own pout. “I’m someone who doesn’t really like to wear a lot of makeup,” Alyn Lind continues as she coats her complexion with Glossier’s ultra-light Perfecting Skin Tint, followed by a few dots of Nars’s creamy concealer and Kevyn Aucoin’s Sculpting Powder brushed across her cheekbones. For a glowing finish, she then reaches for a highlighter palette from Dior and Chanel’s glimmering liquid eyeshadow, which she uses not on her lids but instead on the tip of her nose and on her cupid’s bow. “The person that inspires me the most for makeup is my cast-mate Zion [Moreno]. She has the most amazing makeup no-makeup look,” she muses. “The friendships that I’ve grown on Gossip Girl have been by far my favorite thing from the show. They are my ride-or-die sisters.” Her final makeup move is a multi-step bold red lip. To begin, Alyn Lind exfoliates her mouth with a dry towel—“the good thing about exfoliating is it makes your lips look bigger too!” she notes—before gliding on a creamy Gucci bullet. After cleaning up the edges, she carefully wipes off the pigment at the very center of her lip and then reapplies it with her pinky finger. “It’s going to look more natural,” she explains, lightly tapping on a dusting of mattifying powder, which she brightens up with one final layer of her go-to rouge. Rest assured, she promises, “This will make it last all night.”
22 years 1999 2021 casting crowns thank you for the memories shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
Is navy blue eyeliner the 22 years 1999 2021 casting crowns thank you for the memories shirt it is in the first place but new black? It might be an unconventional notion on the eye makeup front, but here’s a thought: In terms of classic wardrobe staples, the little black dress and a pair of blue jeans are two of fashion’s great equalizers and are similarly versatile, no? Looking ahead to fall, it was the couture runways that got me, a dedicated eyeliner wearer, thinking along these lines.At Chanel, classic black wings were enhanced with an unexpected lower flick of navy blue pigment while at Dior, makeup artist Peter Philips presented another variation on the color combination, punctuating model gazes with underlines of a “cool, couture midnight blue that is both dense and soft.” The precise shade? The dark indigo shadow from Dior’s 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette in Denim, which riffs on the different colors and textures of blue jeans.Proving that navy can make for an enticing switch-up, celebrity makeup artist Tasha Reiko Brown, who counts Alicia Keys and Gabrielle Union as clients, recently got “Zoom ready” by smudging on a set of navy blue wings using Chanel’s Stylo Yeux pencil in Marine. “I love that just like a classic black liner, navy is timeless,” explains Brown. “The color has long been associated with confidence and authority, so it’s often used in structured things. But I love that while it’s timeless, it also feels like a modern twist to have that subtle pop of color on the eye. I reach for navy when I want to keep the look clean, but with lots of cool factor.”In terms of zeroing in the right shade on the navy blue spectrum, Brown assures that the color family is universally flattering enough that you can just go with your mood. “Feeling bold? Choose a metallic brighter navy with lots of pop to really draw attention to the eyes,” she says. “Want something more classic but with a modern cool factor? Choose a deep rich navy.” Either way, she tends to pair navy eyeliner with “crisp, soft colors that let the rich tone of navy stand out and be the star of the look,” often augmenting the liner with a clean face and a light flush of pink on the lips and cheeks.Whether used in tandem with classic back, or all on its own as a virtually interchangeable alternative, navy blue is a reliably chic choice and one to consider as you mull over the perfect new eyeliner for fall.
