Beauty Tips for the Busy Career Girl
Samantha Sadhwani, the public relations and marketing associate of LCP, shares her beauty routine.
WHAT KEEPS YOU BUSY?
Work, mostly. I love it because not only do we get to launch all these amazing boutique brands from all over the world, but I get to work with great friends, too. I also try to travel as often as I can. I love exploring places and meeting new people.
WHAT IS YOUR DAILY BEAUTY REGIMEN?
It’s very simple! My mom always stressed that less is more when it comes to my skincare routine. At most, I use facial wash, moisturizer, and eye cream. Because my skin is quite sensitive, I love VMV’s hypoallergenic Hydrabalance gentle cream cleanser. I also love La Mer’s moisturizing cream and eye cream. Every night, I make sure to remove my makeup with Simple wipes.
WHAT’S IN YOUR MAKEUP BAG?
Bobbi Brown intensive skin serum corrector and concealer (it acts as skincare too) and a lot of Carmex. I also bring around Benefit’s Hoola bronzer and Too Faced Better than Sex mascara.

WHAT’S YOUR EVENING MAKEUP LOOK?
It isn’t too different from my daytime makeup—I always try to keep it as natural as possible. I make my eyeshadow a bit darker using M.A.C Brow Duo.
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE LUXURY?
Something of great quality and something enjoyable, whether it’s fashion goods or spending time with family.
HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN?
Other than going to the dermatologist on a regular basis, I think exercising regularly has had an enormous effect on my skin. Being at the beach a lot, I make it a point to consistently apply VMV Armada sunblock.

HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN YOUR PHYSIQUE?
Cycling at Electric Studio two to three times a week.
HOW DO YOU RELAX?
I try to take a trip out of town at least once a month to unwind from the city bustle.
WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER COMPROMISE ON?
My values. In whatever field I’m in, I try to stay as grounded and as authentic as possible.
WHAT IS THE BEST BEAUTY ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
To consistently take care of my skin. I never realized how important it was until now.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE BEAUTY FAUX PAS?
I was never too extreme with my makeup so thankfully I can’t really recall any big ones. The worst was using a bright lip color that didn’t suit me.
ARE THERE ANY BEAUTY ICONS THAT YOU LOOK UP TO AND WHY?
My Lola. She looks amazing for her age (she can probably pass as my sister) and she has always kept her beauty regimen so simple.
WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL DEFINITION OF BEAUTY?
Inner beauty radiates from within. There’s nothing more beautiful than that.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST GRATEFUL FOR?
My friends and family. I wouldn’t be where I am without them.
