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:
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.
