Welcome to City Brewed. We’re all about celebrating the life that happens over coffee: morning rituals, fresh-brewed inspiration, and taking a peek inside cafes near and far.

Olay Fresh Effects

There are a few ways I celebrate when gloomy winter days officially become a thing of the past. Breaking out my spring-appropriate attire is first. Please note that this usually happens weeks before the weather actually starts to cooperate. Lace and neutrals replace what was previously entirely black, and the red lip is gradually retired to a fresh shade of tangerine (I can’t decide if my resemblance to an orange is slightly-embarrassing or ironically cool).  

As opposed to the many layers of bronzer that lives on my cheeks during the winter months (something has to give me some color), I like to leave my face as bare as possible during the spring and summer. I frequently channel “Barbara Palvin meets beach” for my daily foundation-less inspiration, adding just a few swipes of mascara, and my trusty tangerine lipstick for a day on the go.

Olay Fresh Effects has kind of saved my life this season, and although I’ve only been using it for about a month, I can already see less shine and more opportunities for makeup-less skin. Paired with the “Long Live Moisture” moisturizer, my morning routine is short and sweet before a day of meetings, coffee, and prancing around the city (in heels, of course).
