Ajla's Guide to a Glowy Post-Workout Makeup Look

Facebook LogoTwitter Logo
We've featured Supergreaters from across the country, including a handful of our neighbors in the north—but Ajla definitely takes the cake for the community member that is the farthest away (that we know of). Ajla lives between Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Albania, in the Balkan country of Montenegro. She lives so far away that we can't ship her rewards to her, so she gets all of them delivered to her sister in the U.S. (another awesome Supergreater, Thankful-and-thriving) who then sends them to her.

Ajla is a student majoring in English and Russian, she loves watching Misfits (if you haven't already seen it, you should) and like so many of us, she's in the A.R.M.Y. The BTS A.R.M.Y. that is. Her love for this pop band and her love of beauty makes a lot of sense; the members of BTS are big on makeup and skincare too (Jimin and Jin are known to love a smokey eye). "When I’m not listening to music or watching funny stuff, I like to spend time with my nephews and my niece, looking at flowers and butterflies, teaching them to love little things in life," she says.

Although she's known on the app for her no-makeup makeup look and natural glowy complexion, this wasn't always her go-to look. "I used to get my makeup done so differently," she says. "I was obsessed with matte foundations and powders, matte lipsticks, just matte everything and heavy makeup for my everyday routine, until I realized less is more, and glowy makeup is definitely more beautiful." She even goes as far as avoiding mascara, because she thinks it takes her a notch too far into a fully done look.

The products she can't live without include the Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek, BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone (which was recently voted the most popular highlighter in the U.S.) and Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Pure Hollywood. Like many other Featured Reviewers, she takes getting unready very seriously. "I would literally never go to sleep without taking my makeup off and washing my face first," she says. "That’s a major no-no to me."

Now that we've covered getting unready, let's see how she gets ready, shall we? This natural beauty uses products like Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette, Essence Brighten Up! Banana Powder, and Elizabeth Arden Toast to a Kiss Lip Gloss to achieve that I Just Went On A Ten Mile Run And Then Drank A Kale And Celery Juice look.
