The Nail files: Lyndsay Christian, News Reporter and Anchor

Lyndsay Christian

Imagine this: every day your work life requires you to effortlessly deliver the news – on time, with all the facts, with a face full of makeup and not one hair out of place. How would you handle the pressure?

This is the life of an on-air reporter.

They face cameras, tight deadlines and bright lights on a daily basis. Lyndsay Christian, a reporter and anchor for NY1 News, takes it all in stride (with preparation, and of course, a beauty bag stocked with everything she needs to be camera-ready in a matter of minutes). We wanted to know more about Lyndsay's beauty regimen and her makeup must-haves, so she gave us the lowdown.

D.I.D. Nail Paint: What key items do you keep in your cosmetics stash?

Lyndsay: I apply my own makeup for work, so of course I have my brushes, foundation, powder, and eye shadow palette but, I keep pairs of lashes on standby to wear in between my visits to The Lash Loft. I love to wear eyelashes to give my eyes a nice "pop" on-air. I also keep pairs of eyelashes stashed in a drawer at home!

Do you have a regular skin care regimen?

Since I wear heavy make-up for work, it's important that I free my skin and rid my pores of product build-up every night. I usually start with makeup remover wipes. I use a variety of brands, but I do have my go-to brands. I love Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes and the Cleanse by Lauren Napier wipes. I wash my face daily with Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Brightening Cleanser and I exfoliate my face two to three times a week with St. Ives Apricot Scrub, a great inexpensive staple  

What's your nail care routine like?

Chile, I love to change my polish! I do it almost weeklyso I consider myself an avid DIY-er when it comes to my manicures. I treat myself to a professional pedicure (especially during the summer months) and for special occasions during the winter months.

What colors do you typically like to wear on your nails?

While on-air I tend to stay away from bold or loud colors, unless I'm on vacation. During the spring and summer months, I love to sport various shades of pink, from a soft pastel to fuchsia. And when the weather gets cooler as the fall and winter months approach, I prefer darker hues of red. But, for special occasions, I prefer sparkle and fun! I wore a really pretty hue called Open Bar from D.I.D. Nail Paint on New Year's Eve. It was the perfect complement to my sequin mini dress. If I had to choose a year-round worthy color, I’d definitely say nude shades like Birthday Suit, works well for any occasion.

What's your secret to looking fresh and well rested on air?

Sleep! I aim for 7-8 hours of sleep daily to prevent eye bags.
