There’s a New Red in Town – IT Girl by It Cosmetics

IMG_5327The texture is just like butter, lips are hydrated, plump and moist. The shade is gorgeous and I’ll say this is one perfect shade of red.

It was literally love-at-first-sight. The scent is intoxicating and the color is simply gorgeous.

This is part of their Blurred Lines Lip Collection, there are 9 shades in all, one for everyone.

My Makeup Routine

photo-1Since the Skin Veil from Ellis Faas landed in my lap I’ve been unable to put it down, why? Because it’s the closest foundation I’ve tried that actually mimics my skin tone.

It’s natural looking in a way that doesn’t look like I’m wearing makeup.  You may be asking yourself how can this be? It doesn’t look like I have piles of foundation and powder caked on my face, yet my skin is luminous and my imperfections are concealed without artifice.

Ellis Faas mascara is another beauty tool that enhances your natural lashes without looking like you’re trying too hard.

Naturally I’m also in love with MAKE, they make the most amazing Glossing Powder that leaves your skin glowing even  more if that’s possible.

And last but not least I am addicted to my Brow Powder eyebrow pencil by iT Cosmetics, it’s not only natural looking, but it doesn’t come off until you take it off.

Ladies, this was just my canvas, this doesn’t include my skincare regimen or my red lipstick.

Keeping It Simple – Weekend Beauty Routine

photoI don’t know about you guys, but I like to keep it simple on the weekends.  Unless of course I have a date I’m nervous about.  Nervous because there are some men that just make a woman nervous, if you know what I mean.

Since I wear makeup 5 days a week and blow-dry my hair, it makes sense that I’m just lazy come Saturday morning, especially if it’s a beautiful day.

I wear no makeup, except for my eyebrows and maybe a CC or BB Cream, but highly unlikely.

This past weekend, was no exception and my beauty routine was easy-peasy.

1. Eye Cream – don’t forget to use one with anti-aging benefits, by Orlane.

2. Facial Oil with antioxidant protection and hydration, by Sunday Riley.

3. Lip Balm – this one is the best by Homeoplasmine.

4. Eyelash enhancer by Talika Lipocils.

5. Rodan Lip Balm for a bit of color.

6. Eyebrow Pencil by “IT” Cosmetics, the best I’ve ever tried.

7. Serum De Soie by Leonor Greyl – I let my hair air-dry and this keeps it silky smooth and frizz free all day.

There you have it, mind you I didn’t take any pictures of myself.  Not that I didn’t look nice, it’s just not the version of myself I want caught on film.

So, what’s your weekend beauty routine like?



New CC Cream – “IT” Cosmetics

photoCan I just tell you guys that I am in CC Cream heaven.  Not only is the compact gorgeous, but the application is flawless.  The CC Cream just absorbs and blends into the skin, leaving it smooth and selfie ready.

I collect compacts now and will repeat myself, it’s not a bad thing to have several different foundations, compacts etc.

The only one beauty product you don’t want to open at the same time are multiple mascaras.  Why? Because they expire within three months.

This is one CC Cream that I just love!

Being an “IT” Girl with “IT” Cosmetics

ItCosmeticsI never set out to become an “IT” girl, it just happened. I first fell in love with the Brow Power eye pencil, the color is universal and doesn’t come off until you take it off.  I love that eye brow pencil so much that I recommend it to everyone and it’s one of the few makeup essentials I hoard.

Other items I love are their Tight Line Mascara, Bye Bye Pores powder and the Bye Bye Redness concealer that delivers it’s promise.

Right now they are offering a 5 piece gift set on QVC that includes my two favorites and new additions that I haven’t been able to put down.

The New CC+ Radiance Palette comes with three shades of colors that help accentuate our best features and their New reformulated Bye Bye Under Eye concealer that really does make you look like you got in your 8 hours of beauty sleep.
