If you watch my makeup tutorials you know how much I love to work on my cheeks! I know, I know, most people favor eye makeup or some great lip art. For me there is something about sculpting cheekbones and creating depth & dimension to the face that is really satisfying!
Ever since I began wearing makeup as a teenager, I would get so excited to go shopping for beauty products! I would spend hours flipping through girly magazines for inspiration and browse the beauty aisles of my local CVS store. Especially in college, this was my favorite thing to do late at night (yay for 24 hour CVS’s!). I stopped by my local CVS for some skincare products and ended up leaving with some new makeup to play with! CVS stocks dozens of new and innovative products every month and are even shoppable outside of the beauty aisles too! They’ve placed trendy beauty products in check-out aisles so you’re always up to date on what’s popular!
I sculpted & highlighted my cheeks with the few products I just picked up and wanted to share my haul and process with you! What’s really great about shopping beauty products at CVS is that they are 100% risk free. Beauty products can be returned no-questions-asked unopened or opened as long as you have your receipt. I do have a feeling though you’ll love everything I just picked up! :)
You know I have a hard time straying away from nude/neutral looks! I just love warm brown colors, I can’t resist! I finally got my hands on the Kylie Cosmetics Kyshadow Bronze Palette and the new Brown Sugar Lip Kit and had to create a look with them! You’ll be obsessed with the Bronze Palette if you love warm brown palettes like the Morphe 35o (code IRENE for a discount!), but I love that this palette includes a black shadow! That’s the one thing the 35o’s are missing!
Don’t even get me started on Brown Sugar, I’ve been waiting for this color all my life lol! Enjoy the tutorial!
Enhancing and illuminating my cheeks is my favorite makeup-application step so it’s no surprise that my highlighter collection is constantly growing. I just discovered Revlon’s PhotoReady Insta-Fix™ Highlighting Stick and it has become the perfect addition to my makeup bag! I’ve always been constantly on the go; but this year has been a completely different kind of busy with international travels every other month. I’ve gotten packing my to-go makeup bag down to a science. I need items that not only travel well but can also be applied quickly and easily. Revlon’s PhotoReady Insta-Fix™ Highlighting Stick is a mistake-proof highlighting stick for adding precise pops of glow anywhere & anytime. In this case, I’m coming to you from the Greek Islands! Folegandros to be exact. When I’m traveling, I don’t even bother with eye-makeup so I have to make extra sure that my complexion products are on point. Luckily for me (and my photos!), Revlon’s PhotoReady Insta-Fix™ Highlighting Stick’s super-refined pigments reflect light in such a beautiful way that it leaves a soft focus retouched effect. Perfection!
I am so excited to partner up with some pretty incredible brands on this video: Cosmopolitan Magazine, Estée Lauder, & Macy’s! Together we created this flawless foundation/base tutorial. You guys know that working with complexion products is my absolute favorite so I loved creating a video that was face-centric. If I could, I’d revolve all of my tutorials around face makeup haha, I wish my eyes and brows would just do themselves.
