WATCH: Kosas founder Sheena Yaitanes’ healthy, skin-nourishing makeup look (in just 7 products)

Category is: lazy girl beauty, but keep it polished.

When Sheena Yaitanes, founder of Kosas and quintessential LA cool-girl visited MECCA HQ back in February, we were—for lack of better words—totally shook by her clear, radiant skin, and effortlessly tonal beauty look. It’s especially relevant for now since we’re at home and need inspiration for an easy daytime look that’s good for our skin.

Her secrets to achieving this were, in fact, no secret, but rather the product of her clean beauty brand, born from the founder’s educational background in organic chemistry and fine art, and her fascination with colour theory and portraiture.

Lucky for us (and now, you), Yaitanes let us in on her go-to look for an everyday face that looks as healthy and nourished as it actually is, thanks to high-powered products that double as skincare and makeup (without skimping on one or the other).

First, Yaitanes gently sweeps on Tinted Face Oil in the shade 5.5, which, over time, has effectively balanced her typically oily skin and reduced any breakouts. Next, she reaches for the brand’s newest addition, Revealer Concealer—“an eye cream, spot treatment and a concealer all wrapped up into one product,”—popping it on her under eyes, on the top of her cheekbones as a highlighter, and around her lips to bring them forward.

The anti-contour comes next in the form of her Colour & Light Powder Palette in the shade ‘Contrachroma’ a flesh-inspired blush duo to lift and accentuate your natural face shape. To add a pop of colour—“like an instant cup of coffee for the face,”—Yaitanes blends ‘Papaya 1972’ into the apples of her cheeks. She’ll even lightly run some across her under eyes to counteract and correct any blueness.

For the lips, go with a double dose of colour and hydration by swiping on Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm in ‘Rush’, followed by Wet Lip Oil Gloss in ‘Jellyfish’. The final step? An instant hit of colour on the lids thanks to 10-Second Liquid Eyeshadow in the universally-flattering shade, ‘Globe’.
