I’m not kidding when I say my skin looks tired. In the summer I totally refrain from any treatments or creams that can make my skin even more sensitive to the sun. Add that to all of the extra sunscreen and sweating, I feel like my pores are clogged and my skin looks super dull. However, recently I have received several compliments on my makeup. One of my friends actually said my skin looked “dewy,” and I am pretty sure it has everything to do with my new CC Cream from It Cosmetics. I became familiar with It Cosmetics a few years ago when I received this amazing brush in a free gift. Last year I got all hot on highlighting and contouring and my favorite makeup blogger recommended I get this brush. I also bought this brush for concealer.
Needless to say, I have been a fan of It Cosmetics brushes for a while, but it wasn’t until this summer when I attended the Southern Blog Society Conference and was introduced to the actual “cosmetic” line that I decided it was something I needed to share with y’all. I have incorporated several products from their line into my regular makeup routine so I thought this would be a great time to let you in on what I am loving on my face right now.
Georgio Armani Eye Serum This doesn’t take the place of your morning eye cream but if you wake up and your dreams, or whatever, have left you puffy, this serum and the cold metal applicator should be your first stop post wake-up.
It Cosmetics Serum No. 50 This serum and primer all in one wonder product streamlines your morning routine.
It Cosmetics CC Cream This is my new favorite product! It has SPF 50 and covers all my imperfections like pine straw in your flowerbed. It feels more like a moisturizer than a foundation and after searching long and hard for my perfect foundation I think I am in love.
Bobbi Brown Gel Bronzer A little goes a long way with this SPF 15 bronzing gel. It easily blends in with your foundation for a very natural sun kissed look.
It Cosmetics Face Disk This palette is amazing. I use the bronzer for contouring, the blush on the apples of my cheeks and the highlighter on my cheekbones. I’ve been around the block as far as highlighting and contouring goes and this may be my permanent address.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder This is the perfect powder to finish off your makeup and give you an airbrushed look without a cakey finish.
