Easy, Everyday Makeup With Covergirl!



Hey you! I hope your week is flying by. I've been crazy busy, but (usually) not too busy to apply some makeup. It just makes me feel better-- it makes me feel more like me. Even though I'm just hanging out with a five year old and a seven month old, I look forward to applying it. I'm sharing an easy, everyday makeup tutorial with you today, using only Covergirl products. Here's what I used:

covergirl everyday makeup

And here's how to:







I applied Ready, Set Gorgeous foundation and the TruBlend concealer (I also have this in a lighter shade to highlight with and a darker shade for contour) and then began working on my eyes.


I used the shadow trio in Smoke Alarm. The lightest shade went on my lid, with the darker color in my crease and the darkest shade in outer corner for more definition.


Next, came the eyeliner and the #GirlsCan Flamed Out mascara. Y'all know I gotta have my big lashes. More on that mascara in a minute!


I finished the look with the Covergirl Colorlicious lip gloss--love this stuff--and my easy, everyday makeup is complete. It's wearable but not over the top.

Covergirl graciously sent me a giftcard to purchase their products, but I already had plenty of amazing Covergirl makeup. I chose to spend that giftcard buying Covergirl makeup for girls in need. I don't talk about this kind of stuff on here, but I volunteer to help girls in shelters, foster homes, or situations where they don't have a mom or a big sister around. These girls need basic info like hygiene and of course they want to learn how to do makeup, so I show them how. Just like makeup helps me feel better about myself, it does the same for them. The internal (and external) transformations are amazing. I want them to know that they can achieve their dreams by turning a "can't" into a "can" by believing in themselves.

And that's where the COVERGIRL #GirlsCan campaign comes in. They promote the empowerment of women by encouraging them to break down barriers and turn “can’t” into “can” by donating $50,000 to Dress for Success®. I urge you to visit your local Walmart and look for the #GirlsCan display. The COVERGIRL #GirlsCan mascaras come in 2 varieties at Walmart everyday low prices: COVERGIRL Flamed Out Mascara and COVERGIRL Professional All-in-One Mascara.


To encourage you to try out these mascaras, 
I'm giving away a $25 Walmart giftcard.

  15. Elle, I think what you are doing is seriously so incredible. There needs to be more people with a kind soul in this world. I was absolutely touched when I read that you used what you already had to do this look and chose to use the gift card sent to purchase makeup for girls who otherwise couldn't buy it. Keep doing what you're doing girl! The world changes one person at a time! (:

Was super excited that a company (Much less cover girl) would want to have me. I really enjoyed doing this as its for such an awesome company. Dress For Success does amazing work! Love the look you created! :)

  69. I'm kind of stuck with mascara. I usually take the free samples from the GWP from Estee Lauder, Lancome, Clinique, or w/e my family members bought at the time. Normally I just get the great lash or nyx doll eye (when it goes on sale). So it'll be nice to try something new!
