I have professed my love for It! Cosmetics in the past and I am back again to share how I use their products and take literally 5 minute to put on my face. I can’t/won’t spend anymore time than that because I really feel like it’s all you need. I see these girls post youtube videos about their daily makeup routine and my mouth drops to the floor with all the layers and layers of stuff they put on their face! Less is really more as far as I am concerned!
So here we go…
Step 1: Serum Collagen Primer ($48) I put this on after I have already washed and dried my face and applied a little face lotion.
Step 2: Undereye Concealer ($24) You only need a little of this stuff, it goes a long way. I also apply it to my lids as a primer.
Step 3: Eyeshadow Palette ($42) I love this new palette because it also has eyelid foundation colors as well as matte and shimmer colors for all over the lid. I always stick to a neutral color with a little shimmer.
Step 4: CC cream foundation ($38) This is the foundation that got me absolutely hooked on the brand and wanting to try more! I swear by this stuff and think it is the best foundation out there. I will sometimes mix the Illumination foundation with the regular, non-illumination foundation, or just use one of the two. I also go between the shades light and medium- so it’s really good to know your shade in this brand in particular because I am not light in ANY other brand of makeup.
Step 5: Face Palette ($38) This is my other holy grail product. It’s a bronzer, blush and highlighter in one huge compact. I love it so much and always get tons of compliments on my blush and ‘glow’ when I wear this. I will use a little of the bronzer to set the foundation and then continue with the blush and highlighter.
Step 6: Brow Pencil ($24) I always take a minute to do my brows, even though I find it super annoying. I think it makes one of the biggest differences to the overall look of your face.
Step 7: Mascara ($24) I forgot to include this in the picture, but this particular mascara is pretty amazing for creating big, full lashes!
Step 8: Lipstick ($20) One of my new favorite colors is called “Rose Flush” it’s definitely a ‘your lips but better’ color which is always what I gravitate towards.
I think that is pretty much it and I promise you, this takes me no more than 5 minutes. I don’t do anything fancy, I don’t have time for eye liner on a regular day, I don’t contour unless it’s a special occasion and I have time to give it a try. This is my everyday makeup routine and it works for me! I would love to know what your holy grail makeup products are or what your favorite products from It! Cosmetics are- I am always looking to try new products!
