COVERGIRL #GirlsCan

I feel like I have skimpy, thin eyelashes so mascara is the one thing I never leave home without using. I’m a huge fan of all the COVERGIRL mascaras and I was thrilled to receive this COVERGIRL Professional All-In-One Mascara in ‘very black’ to try. It’s a 3-in-1 mascara that promises to deliver volume, length and definition. Volume and length are both a problem for me and I loved how this mascara made them appear both plumper and longer. I would definitely keep using this COVERGIRL Professional All-In-One Mascara.

COVERGIRL #GirlsCan

I think it’s fabulous that COVERGIRL also supports empowering girls and women. They have a wonderful #GirlsCan campaign to help girls succeed and “turn can’t into can”. In fact, COVERGIRL is donating $50,000 to Dress For Success, an international non-profit organization that helps disadvantaged women find jobs by providing professional attire, support and career development tools.

Get Flawless Results With Airbrush Makeup

Airbrushing Makeup

I have a mild case of Rosacea on my cheeks and I go to great lengths to cover it up with makeup. I use a green moisturizer as the first layer, then use a primer on top of that and finish with a powder mineral makeup. This works for me for the most part, but it wears off rather easily during the day and takes quite a few steps to apply.

My dermatologist has told me that I can expect the Rosacea to get worse as I get older and that medications don’t really help. On the other hand, I can get laser treatments to remove the red spots, but he tells me that I’ll have to get them repeatedly as the spots reappear.

I believe that I’ve found an easier alternative though and could get better results by airbrushing makeup on instead of my usual three step process. An airbrush makeup system starts at around $150, but it provides flawless coverage and can cover up Rosacea, acne, and other skin imperfections.

An airbrushing makeup system provides sheer, buildable coverage and its virtually weightless so you can apply a little, or a lot where needed. It also goes on very fast so you can get picture perfect skin in less time than it takes to apply regular makeup.

Do It Yourself Make Up

There are a few things in life that most women cannot go without. Yes, men of the world, only a few things. Aside from the reckless splurging on the 75% off Coach clutch or the home décor that is on major sale and completely necessary to pull the room together, women spend on their appearance, especially make up. The problem though is that, unlike the handbags and curtains, make up and beauty products rarely go on sale. What’s a girl to do? A girlfriend recently introduced me to a brilliant (and economical) plan – make your own!

Now I know what women think when they see a DIY (do it yourself); it looks like a great money saving idea, but we don’t like putting the effort forth to go out and buy the materials and make it. But the good thing about DIY make up and other beauty products is that most women have the necessary materials in their homes. If not, the ingredients are no farther away than a short trip to a drug store.

I have found a few websites that give recipes for home beauty products including DIY body scrub, perfume, shave oil, and facial masks, as well as lip/cheek color, eyeliner, and even bronzer! What I love about all of these home concoctions is that they isolate the necessary materials to make the beauty product, but leave out all the unnatural preservatives. So with these products, you will know exactly what’s going on your body, and you’ll be making both a healthy and inexpensive choice.

Now trust me when I say that these are easy to do. Nothing took me more than 15 minutes to make; some were even as simple as buying one natural oil and putting it on. As far as money goes, you could buy a bottle of activated charcoal for DIY eyeliner for $5 and that would make enough eyeliner to last nearly two years. But, as I said before, the majority of the ingredients are basic items found in any kitchen.

So ladies, go out and explore the possibilities of DIY beauty products. The best way to find these websites is a simple Google search. Check out “How to make your own beauty products from scratch”. That will give some general products, but the more specific your search is, the more specific your results will be. Make sure to experiment and share with others – that’s the beauty of it all.
