. Even offline, my addiction is apparent; my sisters jokingly nicknamed my bedroom closet “Sephora” considering the wealth of goodies and gadgets I’d stockpiled over the years. But despite being unable to resist a new makeup purchase, my actual routine has always been relatively low-key. I can’t pull off the effortless perfection of the no-makeup look preferred by several of my colleagues, but when I get dolled up, it is never over the top. Whether I’m experimenting with a wash of bright liner or an extra-sparkly shadow topper, subtlety is key.

This tint looks and lasts like a traditional stain, but doesn\u2019t have that bitter taste or drying, astringent feel typical in other products.
