During months of deployment in Germany and Poland during the pandemic, the army (and now goop junior beauty editor) Eric Ndlow faced major breakthroughs. “I’ve always had breakouts and acne scars, but I’ve faced a real flame,” she says. “I was insecure about my skin, so I put on make-up in tones to cover everything up, and it just didn’t work out. I never thought about whether the chemicals in regular makeup might be part of the problem. ”
After Ndlova switched to pure makeup, she also used less. “My skin has improved a lot, enough that I need less coverage than before. So let’s get into the makeup party – it used to be such a job! “She says.” Besides, my skin looks dewy and I feel amazing. “Below are Ndlow’s favorite favorites of all time.
I love starting my day with a fresh face. This luxurious cleanser made from diamond powder and salicylic acid gently exfoliates my skin while giving it an excellent moisture boost with coconut oil and shea butter. What I love most is how clean it leaves my skin, along with the subtle scent of roses, which is the first treat in the morning.

After cleansing, I start with this light moisturizer – it leaves my skin smooth, hydrated and radiant, but it doesn’t break out from me (which some face creams do). It’s great on its own with sunscreen, and it’s also amazing under concealer or foundation.
This breathable base infused with sodium hyaluronate fits perfectly into my skin, making it even and dewy. I love how much it is possible to build and the fact that it is the perfect size to throw in a bag for a quick grooming.

I have acne scars. This creamy concealer has the best finishing look out there, but not quite. I spot it directly on the places I want to lighten, and then I step on them with my finger or brush. It combines so well – it comes in a wide range of shades and leaves no visible texture – so my skin looks like it’s in great shape, not like I’m wearing concealer.
Skin Twin cream concealer

I’ve never been an eye makeup artist (patience isn’t my strong suit), but this smooth ink eyeliner is so easy to use – it’s perfect for me. Place a few dots as close to the lash line as possible, then just connect the dots. Mix it using a stain at the other end and: done.

This mascara leaves my lashes super defined, thick and shiny. Made from beeswax, shea butter and a mineral complex that maintains your lashes, it also lengthens when it thickens. One coat is a great everyday look, and I like to do a few coats for extremely long, raised lashes if I go out.

I have always loved thick eyebrows, and this gel shapes and defines eyebrows that are completely natural, but also beautifully bold. And it’s easy to use: I coat my temples and it always attracts my overall look.
Treatment for lifting airy eyebrows
goop, $ 22
With a simple stroke of this berry-red cream blush it brings warmth and depth to my entire face. It is super moisturizing, so it leaves the cheeks with a nice plump, dewy look. I love it on both lips and eyelids – it’s a top-notch multitasker.
Baby cheek for blush
goop, $ 48
I love the natural-looking glow with a little shimmer. This creamy highlighter has a beautiful pink-gold glow that looks incredibly fused over my cheekbones and bones, as well as on the bridge of my nose and my Cupid’s bow. It is subtly iridescent and elevates any makeup look without makeup.
goop, $ 38
This luxurious palette nourishes my lips and gives a beautiful long-lasting color. I love smearing it with my fingers to achieve a stain on your lips, but when I apply it with a brush, it’s a beautiful lipstick.
