My Day Makeup

I have been getting a lot of questions about what face makeup I use during the day. I'm really picky with makeup. I try a LOT of different products and am always changing it up but once I land on a face makeup that I love, I usually stay with it. I was ready for something new a few months ago and discovered the CC cream by It Cosmetics in light and absolutely love it. This product goes on a little thick but it really isn't. I just keep brushing it in with my favorite brush by bdellium tools (see my Evening Face Makeup post for brush details) It sort of melts into the skin and evens out. This CC cream is not only a 50 SPF, it also has wonderful coverage and still gives me that summer glow I'm always looking for. It has loads of antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients. I've been using it for over two months now and my skin is happy with no breakouts. I use the Bye Bye concealer under my eyes in medium. These two products give my skin a fresh clear look with a dewy finish. I like to take my beauty blender and sponge on a little of the Marc Jacob Spotlight Glow Stick highlighter on the tip of my nose up the bone, just above my cheek bone avoiding my wrinkles, and on the center top of my forehead. I love the way this highlights my face and keeps me super glowy but still natural looking. Once I finish with the highlighter, I take my beauty blender and sponge my face with the Chanel Soleil Tan Bronze cream on my cheeks, cheekbones, and all the way up around the side of my eyes near my hair line and take it all the way around to the other cheek. Anywhere the sun would naturally hit. Then I shade a tad on the sides of my nose and under my jaw bone and chin. I finish by blending it all in with my brush that I used to apply my BB cream to even everything out and make sure I don't look like I have much makeup on at all. For my eyes, I'm using the Naked3 pallet by Urban Decay and so in love. This pallet is incredible for traveling because I don't need any other shadows or eyeliner. I use all the colors in this pallet including the darkest for my eyeliner. Finish off with your favorite mascara, I use L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes. It's super cheep from any grocery store and incredible. It makes my lashes look super long and thick. I never stray. If you're loving my little white clutch, it's actually a wallet but it's magical and can be used as a clutch. It's from Carly Jean and I have it in black too. I have spent way too much on wallets and never am satisfied. This wallet was a game changer. It holds my phone too if I need it to be a clutch for a date night! It's also under $60 bucks!

My CC cream, Urban Decay Pallet, Marc Jacob highlighter,are all from Sephora, I get my Bye Bye consealer on line from It Cosmetics, and my Chanel Bronzer at Macy's and my favorite brush is from Nigels Beauty which you can find below on my last post. My wallet is from Carly Jean. Links below all connect direct to the product! Hope this helps! Email me with any questions or comments!
