It’s time again to peek into another ClarityMD staffer’s little bag of tricks! Our Patient Concierge, Lana Bockelman, took a few minutes to tell us the products she can’t live without, and how she gets that gorgeous, foundation-free skin she’s living in. Here’s what’s in Lana’s beauty bag:
ClarityMD: So, for our first question, what beauty products do you refuse to leave the house without?
Lana: I won’t leave the house without mascara.
ClarityMD: Do you prefer waterproof or regular?
Lana: Regular. I find waterproof very hard to remove even with makeup remover, so I use regular. Lancôme mascara is my go-to beauty splurge.
ClarityMD: What’s your overall favorite makeup brand?
Lana: I’d say MAC because they have great eyeshadows. My favorite one from them for the summer is called “Woodwinked.”
ClarityMD: Speaking of eyes, when it comes to liner do you use pencil, liquid, or gel?
Lana: I use gel. It’s the easiest way to do a cat-eye and an even line along the lid.
ClarityMD: What’s the newest addition to your beauty bag and why did you choose it?
Lana: NARS Orgasm Blush. It’s a very popular, universally flattering shade.
ClarityMD: I know you don’t wear foundation, but do you ever use anything like a concealer?
Lana: I do. I use Teamine eye concealer.
ClarityMD: You have such great skin! What is one, simple beauty tip our readers can use to be on their way to foundation-free skin?
Lana: Start with quality skin care at a young age. Wash your face and remove makeup every night and always wear SPF every day.
ClarityMD: Still on the topic of great skin and quality products, what is your favorite makeup or skincare product ClarityMD carries? Why are you addicted?
Lana: Daily Power Defense Light Moisturizer. It’s not greasy and it is packed with antioxidants for anti-aging.
ClarityMD: Now, on the other side of the beauty bag, are there any drugstore brands you like?
Lana: Loreal. Their makeup quality is similar to Lancôme and it’s great if you’re on a budget.
ClarityMD: When it comes to people who influence and inspire you from a beauty standpoint, who would be your favorite beauty icon and why?
Lana: Jennifer Lawrence. She has a timeless and natural beauty.
ClarityMD: She really is; it seems like we’ve all watched her blossom into a really talented, beautiful woman. Speaking of, is your beauty bag different now from when you were 20, and why?
Lana: Yes. It includes medical grade skincare now.
ClarityMD: And finally, what beauty advice would you give your 16-year-old self?
Lana: Start wearing SPF even if you aren’t going to be outside!
