Lockdown chic: Inside Hilary Duff’s 20-minute makeup routine

by Shayna Sappington
15th May 2020

Simple, sparkly and expensive, Hilary Duff shares her go-to beauty routine in quarantine

Like most of us, Hilary Duff has been trying to keep a sense of normalcy during lockdown by trying to stick to a simple routine.

The Lizzie McGuire star recently appeared on an Insta video, cracking a joke about her blue, “murky lake” coloured hair — I think we are all feeling the grown-out roots struggle — before sharing her 20-minute quarantine makeup routine.

“We can still have pretty makeup while we’re in quarantine to make our day seem a little more normal,” she said.

Face prep

Starting with Glycelene Stem C mist and beauty serum, Duff explains that she’s “obsessed” with Glycelene products because they are super hydrating and all vegan.

Then she takes Tata Harper Boosted Contouring Eye Balm and dots it underneath her eyes and uses it as a filler for her smile lines as well, before finishing off with cucumber-scented Glycelene Rejuvenation Creme.


Duff continues the tutorial, using her favourite beauty products at the moment. All of which are listed below:
