glowy skin in 20 minutes.

by ray siegel

Natlia Vodianova didn't have to work too hard to win today's Beauty Queen crown, but she did remind us to go back to basics. Whether your about to load on the makeup or go natural, the first step to any look should be skincare prep—if there's one thing that we're experts at it's that. Stick to our tricks and pretty soon you won't even need foundation. Ready for your prep time?

MASK IT:Radiance Renewal Mask, $55

You'll be shocked at how much more glowy your skin looks after 20 minutes with this face mask. Apply it all over and remove with a warm towel.

BALM IT:Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, $45

If you don't need a ton of coverage use this balm instead of a BB cream—it's a pick-me-up for your skin that tightens, brightens.

LINE IT:Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Pandora, $34

Getting your eyeliner to look like Vodianova's is easier: Take a flat liner brush (dry, not wet) and dip it into the right side of the shadow duo. Pull your lid taut and dab the brush next to your lash line starting from the outer corner of your eye—it should only take about three brush-length lines next to one another. The trick is to not move all the way to the center of the eye. Then use the white have of the duo right under your brows to open up the eyes and create more contrast.
