Help! I Need to Streamline My Routine
Before: Jesse Jordan, 27
Jesse, who works in digital marketing in New York City, was hoping to trim down the time she devoted to doing her makeup: at least 30 minutes every morning. But she was reluctant to cut any corners that meant she would need to reapply her makeup later in the day. Beyond that, she’d just chopped her hair into a bob, so she was craving an equally crisp makeup look, maybe to experiment with colors. Rae subtly tweaked her routine, shortcutting it to save time and introducing a new nude lip color. (T-shirt by Velvet.)
