AM to PM with A Lacey Perspective

One of the reasons I love reading Lacey’s style blog, A Lacey Perspective, is that she always puts together the chicest DC outfits (for work and for play) without forgetting a bold lip color. Today, Lacey breaks down her beauty routine from AM to PM.

Lacey’s AM routine:

“I wash my face with Cetaphil using my Clarisonic and follow up with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer.”

Currently in your makeup bag:

“Laura Mercier’s Radiance Primer, NARS Sheer Matte Foundation, NARS Orgasm Blush, Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and Stila All Day Liquid Eye Liner.”

Current obsession:

“All of the NARS Semi Matte Lipstick bold colors. I can’t get enough! I currently own Schiap, Jungle Red and Funny Face. I just recently added Fire Down Below, this amazing wine color, to help me transition into fall.”

Lacey’s beauty mantra:

“When in doubt swipe on a bold lip color.”

Favorite go-to salons:

“I have been going to Rusty at VSL Hair Design for all of my hair needs for almost 5 years now. He is a genius and so much fun to sit and gab with while you wait for your color to process. For manicures and pedicures, I always go to Mimosa. They do a fantastic gel manicure, and the fact that you sip on champagne while looking at a gorgeous chandelier doesn’t hurt either.”

Skincare essentials:

Cetaphil. Clarisonic. Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Serum. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer.

Typical hair routine:

“For shampoo and conditioner Rusty (my hair stylist) has me hooked on what I like to call my ‘purple shampoo and conditioner.’ It is specifically made to help you upkeep your blonde locks and keep away those brassy colors that like to come out when washed with harsh shampoos. Once out of the shower, as a blonde it is curial to try to keep the heat away as often as possible, so I like to air dry my hair and follow up with a little curl at the ends if needed.”

Best makeup application secret:

“I am still learning a lot about beauty. I know my shoes and bags, but makeup application is still a learning experience for me.”

I feel naked when I’m not wearing…


Favorite red lipstick:

NARS Jungle Red

Favorite nail polish:

OPI Lincoln Park After Dark

Her PM routine:

“I put on the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Serum before my moisturizer.”
